Hey Jim,
I just started painting 4 of the cav.
Love to see how yours turn out.

I've always found Testors Model Master liquid cement sufficed for me, but a really great tutorial on pinning.

Thanks – very well laid out tutorial

I was thinking I would need strong wire for pinning but now I can see how the softer stuff would be easier to work with

Yes John, the softer wire is so much easier to file.
