Sure was. Thanks again.

Now for the paint to set a couple of days while I'm out of town, then decals and dull coating.

I don't know if I ever did a thread on this additional step, but on my latest HoJo with built up fins I added an extra detail:

I sanded the leading and trailing edges flat and then used styrene cement to apply .100" half-round styrene strips to the edges.

Very convincing Photoshop job.


Seriously, those look almost impossibly amazing.

Wow! Thank you!

And voy lay! The finished fin (one of four.)

While far from perfect, I am very happy with my first attempt at this technique. This now becomes the second best building tip I have learned from Jeffy.
