Glazing

Thanks for the suggestion of using dye Ian, I will look into it.

I had document separators in mind Brian when I Googled A4 acetate sheets and got nowhere. Its the search wording that makes all the difference. When I looked for Comb Binding Covers, A4 tinted Smoke came up and I thought here we are. Apart from buying in packs of 50 pairs, they are made of PVC (fuel proof?) and disappointedly only 180 microns (7 thou) thick. I prefer something thicker.
If using dye does not suit I will use clear acetate.
Years ago when I built (and still have) a Junior 60 and a Majestic Major I used for glazing some 11 thou grey tinted film obtained from the Rank Strand (movies) organisation who used it for colour lighting purposes. Rank Strand no longer exists.
I have some way to go before needing to glaze so still time to look around.
Thanks again for suggestions.
Ray

I've used this stuff for years, Tamiya PS-31 Smoke.

you should be able to get it from most model shops, the more coats you give clear plastic, the darker the tint becomes.
And a tin lasts years. as you can see from the rust

Ian,

Absolutely splendid job-one to be definitely proud of. Almost a shame to cover up all that beautiful woodwork!

Cheers

Tim

Lovely framework Ian, great execution of a classic design. What are you going to cover it with - not shiny plastic film I hope

Thanks guys, I'm quite pleased how this one's turning out. I'll be covering it in lightweight Dacron, that's what I used on my 9ft span Willis. Beautiful stuff to work with and looks great when it's done.

Hi Ian. I agree with everybody, the Falcon looks great!
I looked back through the thread... But was not sure. Will the Falcon be Gas or Electric?

Skip.
