I convince myself that sometime in the future I *may* end up using the leftover markings on *something.* However, I am in a financial situation now that requires a little more discretion in the way I spend my hobby money. With that said, I have a proposal for listees and lurkers who may be in a similar situation. I am looking for two of Raoul Lufbery's aircraft markings. They are each on one of the Americal/Gryphon Lafayette Escadrille sheets. The fuselage and serial markings for his Neiuport 17 (A/G #67)and the same for his SPAD VII (A/G #68). They are similar in nature, being the Indian Head and three coup markings, but, as I understand it, the SPAD coup markings are a bit thicker. In return for these markings I will be willing to trade for markings off of any decal sheet I already have in my possession. I have several sheets (including Aeromaster, Superscale and PD MOdels) dedicated to the Albatros DV(a), Fokker DVII and SPAD XIII, was well as the Lafayette Escadrille #66 (minus the Lufbery marking). If you are interested, let me know off list at mflake@airmail.net.

What if the wire is smeared with a little of cooking oil, vaseline or graphite BEFORE stretching the tube around it? That will improve post- stretching slideness (mmm does that word exist?)

A little practice and you should be able to get the required diameter. The trick is to have something to measure your stretching length against as this then determines the thinkness. Unlike HSP you can start each piece with an identical piece of plastic which makes it easy to judge, and becuase it is hollow it tends to heat more evenly and quickly than solid rod. >From each stretch discard the ends and about 1cm from the middle (the middle will be a bit thinner than the rest) and the remaining portion should be a single diameter if it was heated evenly enough. Use a sharp knife to roll around the tube and a segment will snap off without collapsing the tube. It may need a little finishing to get rid of the burr. Mike Fl.

Ah yes, I have seen such article. What an imagination does have some people! I consider most of the contents of that magazine as pure fiction aimed to the ignorant masses.

I work on this when the SPAD frustrates me. A Spad, frustrating? ;-) Well I finally corrected the wheels on mine (one were stained with CA glue in the rigging process and I had to remove the whole undercarriage to preserve the rest of the model) And one of these days I will asemble all at last. I took a propeller from the 2 resin ones in the other Spad XIII kit and I'm tryng my hand at replicating that intriguing finish in the French airscrews.

Well, I would have said black, but now I'm not so sure.

And great squadron to do the markings in too. I take it that once the top wing is on you can't see a thing in the cockpit?

It'll be worth the time Shane: This bloke Eddie Banham gets on my nerves!:) I mean what kind of person has the good fortune to be able to sit at his modelling bench all damn day and do all this stuff and squirt out two of these things per week? Me, I'm never going to be able to afford to retire with two kids who'll cost a fortune to send to college and even if I did retire, my wive'd never let me do that s**t all the live long day, that's for sure. I have to wait until 8:30PM and the children are in bed before I can consider doing anything. What a life!

Shane: So now you've built both a Roden D.III and an Eduard D.V/Va, which kit do you prefer? By the way, the kits are both $7.96 at Squadron (that's for the Eduard non-Profipack). If you think the Eduard "is" better, how much better do you think it's worth is in dollars?
