I won't make the Monday deadline for the campaign.
To paraphrase Lady Macbeth, 'out, out darn fingerprint'
I was rushing a little on my Albatros, didn't allow the Tamiya paint to cure long enough, and got fingerprints on the model. The marring was enough that I had to strip the paint to bare plastic (Windex - an ammonia based window cleaner works great for stripping Tamiya paint).

So, it should be done in time for the Freeport, LI show, but not for the campaign.

I'll hopefully have better luck with the CH-46 I'm going to build for the helo campaign

Hi Peter

I'm really sorry... I had so many c*ck-ups with my own Albatros, I know just how you feel!

The main thing is that you're going to dive back in and finish it. :-)

Make sure you post some pics of the finished model so we know what we missed for the Campaign.

All the best
