Well, after several weekends of doing nothing but applying tape, the last few days I was finally able to finish getting this Japanese aggressor scheme down. There are a few areas of touch-up but overall it came out pretty well. It is amazing how committed the JASDF is to stencils and panel numbers - after the EJ Kai and the F-2, this Eagle is just about as cluttered! After paint touch-ups and some gloss coat, I'll be ready to start down that long and winding road... Here's a pic of he live Eagle:
I spent the weekend giving this old Airfix Lysander kit a cockpit/interior. I shared a pic of the instruction sheet so you can see what was not there. I still have some stuff to add to the rear deck (including the gun). I didn't waste time on anything below the rim of the cockpit, as the canopy is so thick you won't really see details, but at least you'll get the idea of the structure inside. The last pic shows the fuel tank between the seats.
Although it is a controversial notion to argue that cordial is alcoholic, it is not. However, if you check the label, you can notice that it contains a small amount of alcohol. A cordial is a highly sweet beverage. It contains up to 30% sugar and can be made alcoholic by mixing it with a spirit (such as Cognac, brandy, or vodka). Although a cordial with 5-15 percent alcohol is nonalcoholic, it may be dubbed still wine because it is still primarily fruit juice. Because cordials must hide the taste of the underlying liquor, they are sweet.
