This model has taught you two things, that photographic paper is not very good and that large models can bring you problems of coexistence with the head of the household hehe.

Is it accurate to assume that if you build a Grumman F4F Wildcat you will stuff it with cat hair?
Y'all who build these things at 1/100 and 1/200 scale are impressive; a bit nuts, but impressive.

Oh, those are easy, the real question is what to use in a Blackburn Firebrand.

Finished the mighty Pratt & Whitney radial with all of 6 HP (600 divided by 100 ;-) ). Everything's coming together nicely and I have a good feeling about this little bird.

I thought the ink flaked off of photo paper using a laser printer, but an inkjet puts the
color in the paper. Anyone that has tried this let us know.

Michael, don't worry. You'll beat the pants off-a those wheel pants.

Bob, can't speak others, but I find laser to be MUCH tougher than inkjet and less susceptible to moisture damage. I don't print on my own inkjet and have to make a trip to the print shop but I think it's well worth it.
