    I use an Xacto to open the hole in the spinning prop. A twist or two, check for fit. Repeat until it fits the way you want it to.
    I will have to give the Xacto technique a try to fix one of my OTT planes. Thanks Peter!

    Another lovely J30, Peter!

    Can't Rep you - I hit you on the Fokkers earlier today. (Ooooh, sounds a bit painful! )
    I laugh in the face of danger - then I hide until it goes away!

    Here is a Shapeways Pfalz D.IIIa. A few years ago when Jasta Colors vol 1 came out this plane caught the attention of Chris (Malachi). I was going to paint him one but moving and home renno projects derailed a lot. Daryl did this plane in his wonderful color Shapeways prints and Chris got one. I temporarily lost the urge to do this one but finally got it together to bring to Chris for Origins.

    Fuselage Vallejo Uniform Green 084
    Underside 50/50 mix of Vallejo 151 white grey and The Army Painter Warpaints Stone Golem

    Camo wings and Tatzelworm home made decals, crosses various makers.(?)

    Don't be jealous, friend.

    It looks very nimble - maybe I can fly it in a Thursday night game with O deck, Lucky Pilot and Fire Expert vs Baz's BE2c.
