    Great build and a great picture. Does NASA know half of their gear is missing?:twisted:
  9. As long as I have been a card modeler (since 1980) I have always enjoyed "building" them. But the age of computers has enhansed the field so much that now I find just admiring the work of others to be very rewarding. It makes you try harder to make the perfect model (no glue spots anywhere) I haven't achieve that very many times as it seems that no matter how hard I try to keep it clean somehow somewhere it will find that one spot of wet glue on my finger or work surface. That is why I always spray my prints with clear coat first. That way I can clean off the wet glue. I wish I had all the models that I ruined with a spot of super glue I didn't know was there after they were completed. I guess I am just trying to say I enjoyed admiring this project

    Beautiful build- Awesome glazing!

    Hi Nullmoon,
    The entire build is simply great, but I'm very impressed by the glazing work you did. Can you please describe your materials and methods for installing it?

    Thanks for sharing your photos with us!
    Best Regards,

  15. I atarted this once and got so frustrated after 5 tries at glazing the canopy that I quit. How did you get it so clean and what glue did you use. I can;t seem to get anything to stick even various superglues? I would like to pick it up again if i could have a few pointers

    whey my threads still generating interest:thumb: unlike my modelik mk4:curse: my x-1 is still in good order the only thing that i should have done was add a nose weight as its a bit of a tail sitter so i have it hanging instead

    glazing: the matirial itself is the same stuff that they use to make animation cells i got it from the uni shop anything works i tried niceday photcopeier tranparcetcy as well but didnt use it as it had a tint to it but the effect was the same

    blue: evostickhttp://www.ciao.co.uk/Evo_Stik__72188 contact adhesive foolproof i use it on all "windows"
