Yeah that tool looks useful !

anyhow, post up a pic showing the problem if you could.
but a couple of thoughts spring to mind.. depending on which bit is has the 0.5mm step/raise
sand them separately and check regularly by offering up the part till it's close enough.

if the clear part needs to be made smaller that's a touch trickier as you might need to shim the fuselage wider etc.
Difficult to tell without seeing what's what.
Which bit is has the oversized step on it ?

Either way, I urge you to soldier through this as it will make you a better modeller [wink]
Knowing your limits is one thing but accepting them is another, we grow by not accepting them and pushing against them etc. etc. etc.
alright, I'm sorry for the platitude, promise I won't do it again !! haha [biggrin]

Anyway, show us a pic of the problem parts and point out which bits need sanding, I'd hate to see you toss a £100 in the bin !!

I also encourage you to hang with your build a while longer. It is difficult.

I've had a think about this step, the clear part is wider than the plastic rear fuselage, by opening the seams in the fuselage (with tooth pick points I can solve this problem dry fitting).

Fortunately its the underside that needs opening to match the 2 parts the best. It'll mean a gap of about 2-3mm, but some plasti card and recribing should be easy enough. I can also do some sanding on the 3 main clear parts that form the nose of this kit, removing some plastic from where the 3 parts join should reduce the size of the front.

Doing things with these two methods should eliminate me needing to sand the detail surface of the clear parts, rescribing and rivetting would be very difficult in clear plastic.

You gave it some more thought and seems like you’re going to turn a problem into resolution. Great!!

My initial solution was to sand the transparent plastic. the thoughts of rescribing and then resessed rivet next to the panel lines (in mega hard transparent plastic) seemed too much for me...............

A little thinking out of the box (that is a jibe) and the problem is quite easy to resolve.

You guys are great, keeping my head to the grind stone

Cleaned my airbrushes tonight, I use harder and steinbecks evolution and Infinity usually

They bought out a budget version......The Ultra so I bought to try.

Main seals are "O" rings except the needle nozzle................So not best for laquers (cellulose eats rubber for fun)

My main problem with it is the paint cup..............its just push fit and your paint tends to dribble out of the fit, causing splatters when that drip reaches the nozzle.

I asked Bobby to review, but in the meantime I strongly suggest none of you guys try it................the splatter from cup dribble is too annoying and its not the usual teflon sealed AB like Infinity or Evolution

My old compressor gave up the ghost last August. 

so Bought the TC5000 set up, it came with everything you need (coiled pipe to regulator, Desk top mount regulator with pressure gauge, two hose outlets and 4 AB stands).

It also came with a (presumably Chinese) Sparmax 35 AB (3.5mm)...........its rubber "O" rings and Iawata style nozzle...............but it is actually a very good AB and I now use often in preference to my 0.4 infinity.

I just hate the full cleans with those small needle nozzles

Cleaning and maintaining AB's is certainly no fun. It takes such a tiny tiny piece of trash to muck up the whole mechanism. But what would we do without them??
I have two HS infinity and Evolution + a Chinese knockoff. On any given day I could take a hammer to all three of them---but don't. Best wishes!

So Bobby's superstitious, won't use the word "RAT" Lol. Changed my google name to Keith, so he doesn't keep saying "someone said"********"" and he can acknowledge my name

I live in an area where a lot of Gypsies settled, even saying the word rat is taboo to them........They call them "Long tails"

Dating back to the Black Death

Green is also taboo in their homes........Cloth use to be dyed green with arsenic..........babies sucked cloth and died. But modern dyes are safe

It really amuses me how people hold on to such taboo's

People still ask me "How long before I can vacuum this carpet?", after I've fitted it. Another "old wives tale" simple reason.............we all hate sound of Hoovers.... so fitters said leave 2 weeks before you Hoover, they didn't have to listen to it. You can hoover as soon as I've fitted it

Some superstitions have good basis, never walk under a ladder, in case the guy up it dropd his hammer etc.

But most are so out dated...............well some people amuse me when they hold onto outdated superstitions, most had a real reason at the time.

Most all of us live under old laws and superstitions, some we do not even know about. They just get passed down from our families and society. One of my faves was this: if a black cat crosses the road in front of your car, spit in your hand and smack it on the windshield. ???????

RATS? Considering that a major portion of the population was killed by the Black Plague, I might stick with that one??

Well the rat just carried the fleas that spread the plague

In the UK major towns and cities, statistics say we are never further than 5 yards from a rat (under us in sewers or on surface near us).

I accept there could have been a fear of the rats for the plague...........but as far as I know the people at the time never knew it was rats causing the problem.

Local history museum has a  basin traders and customers use to have to wash coins in, they thought was transferred by coins

In to days society, the only thing we have to fear from rats is Weils disease (carried in rat urine), and as an angler I take active precautions against this.

Though some things can still happen..............rats pee in warehouse of coke cans, on top of the cans.....you drink from can???

Don't panic, this is taken care of by wrapping the cans in waterroof plastic.

But I work with a guy who still says don't drink from the can...........they've been wrapping them for 25 years to my knowledge

I'm not saying its wrong to be precautious................but sometimes we can go too far
