Showing how I use the nano pins to hold my windscreens on while the glue dries. She needs wheels, and a pilot, wing lettering....

In this picture you can see what a 1/16" stick looks like next to the model! And the acupuncture needles I use to pin the balsa together....the needle is so small, I can accidentally stick my finger and don't even feel it. Power pack is being covered with the cowlings.....

Boy! You're moving right along.  I just can't get my fingers to work well enough on those small models!!! Looks great! Smiley


But your builds look like the real thing shrunk down....all the lettering is clear and straight....I think they are terrific!
