    To continue with the Gator Glue saga..........

    I TESTED IT & IT IS AMAZING cheers

    As I was getting Billy Bishop constructed (really a breeze like Werner Voss) I thought the head was not exactly in position, so I tried to dislocate it using super glue DEBONDER, but I managed to BEHEAD poor Billy Sad so definitely I was not going to use superglue again as I needed to POSITION the head flawlessly this time round, so I reached for the SAVIOUR, the Gator Glue Very Happy
    I tested it the day after and it was STUCK thanks again Doc Roe aka Kinder King Very Happy

    Just one question if I may......was it SOLELY you that DISCOVERED this phenomenon LOCALLY? I mean was it you that pointed this Gator Glue to the likes of Alex, Ivan, and the other AFV Nuts?

    Just asking so that I would be able to give them credit if it is due, that's all Very Happy

    At last after all the hassle I had to endure the DIII is finished Smile Smile .

    This is Werner Voss mount and figure was painted by Ray (my brother). Decals are from Spada, although I had to re-paint eveything as these where faded and transparent. Wood effect also from Spada but these where top notch. This model, for the first time, was sprayed with Mister Kit acrylic paint, while for the tail I used Tamiya. Rigging is fishing nylon passed trough turn buckels and small sleeves.

    I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed finishing it. An questions and critique are more than welcome Smile Smile

    Since Joseph hasn't chimed in yet, I'm doing the handshakes guys Laughing

    Guess what, poor Werner Voss is going to be overshadowed by his colourful mount Sad
