Welcome to Stick & Tissue.  As some of our senior members have already said, we're all here to learn and share what we learned.  Mistakes are counted as good learning experiences.  I believe the Whitman Tallwind is one of the aircraft that was photographed in detail.  Look for it under Archives of Aircraft.  All questions will be answered in six different ways....  Grin

Paul , welcome to S&T and the community here. Wrinkles in tissue will show up from time to time no matter how long you've been building. Just remember a couple of points:

1. my ugliest airplanes flew the best.
2. who cares what it looks like if she flies and flies.
3. enjoy what you build and build what you like.

Again, welcome to S&T

Welcome to S&T... you'll find the modelers here are eager to assist with suggestions.  I think you'll find that there will be more than you'll need...then the fun is figuring out which one will work for you and your skills and techniques.  We're all still learning and having fun...post picture of your latest project on the Current Builds board and bring us along on your build.  You'll find we here at S&T are ready and willing to give recommendations, advice and encouragement.

Welcome aboard Paul. Remember there is No sutch thing as a dumb question! There are a lot of good modelers here with great techniques. Look and listen. As far as wrinkles, I have been trying to work that out for years, still looking for one with out them. Oh, your talking about models... Build!

Hello fellow modelers,

I'm relatively new to the ff modeling hobby (I'm 15), but really interested in learning how to make my models better. I really need to work on sanding my models more and getting a wrinkle-free, warp-free final job. So far I've made a Junior Miss, and am working on a Bazooka and a modified Witman Tailwind. I'd welcome any advice or tips this forum has to offer!
