    HI Guys,

    The new clear pringles can lids make perfect material for cutting out to use to give the illusion of a spinning propeller on a 1:48 scale model.
    Just thought I would pass this along and give ya a reason to snack while building, and remember.......pringles dont leave an oily residue lol.


    Have a good evening,

    Greg aka GW

    That brings up something that I had been idly wondering about (too much time I s'pose)

    Do you ever feel self conscious about the source of your reinforcing card? Does it make you feel morally superior to use, say, a Wheeties box rather than generic Super Sugar Choco-Crunchies?
    If I use a Wheetabix box when building a Spitfire, does that lend it an extra edge of authenticity?

    The B-9 got put on hold for a while. I was in the process of revising the nacelles (just didn't like way the engines fit) when I got a contract job that involved 14-16hr days (and one 22hr one I still hate to think of) When I got the time to work on it again I had forgotton so much of what I needed to do that it was actually easier to start something else.
    THAT project is due to be out quite soon.

    I'll go back to the B-9 next I think and get that ready to publish as you're not the first person to ask.
