WIP- Little Tommy

Bit more done. I often use refillable pencil leads for guns. They're easy to cut and the right colour. These are .07mm but I reckon .05 would be better for 1/100.
Regards struts on biplanes, my own preferred method is to attach centre section (cabane) ones first, cut slightly overlength and trimming a little at a time till the upper wing sits on (without glueing yet) even and straight. When satisfied that all's good I'll glue and when set solid, do the outer struts, again cutting overlength and trimming down.
One of the pics shows some of the edge colour paints I use. These are leftovers from my plast days. I've got stacks of 'em so I'm glad they're still seeing useful service.
And MichaelS, there's your plucked paintbrush bristles ready to go.

Going away for a few days, so Tommy is on hold for a bit. The next post will be of completed model which will be some time next week.

That is beautiful Garry, you are incredible, excellent work. My face sketches another smile. Between your Tommy and the Bearcat of Kacper that I am building (I calculate the Saturday I finish it) the mood rises again. Very well done!

They're just standard hardware shop items. Don't even have to the expensive ones- I went for the ones with the finest and longest bristles of which the smaller brushes (3/4'') seemed to have.
But don't forget I nicked this idea from MichaelS. He's the real authority figure on this!

Good on you Sergio. Paper modelling is the best therapy!
Looking forward to your Bearcat mister.
