I I had never heard of this. I wonder if this was done in the  US as well?

Not really, but close.  The theory has been around for years, but these folks look like they are going to make it happen.

I am filling in a few posts that I didn’t get posted when I modeled.  I’ll be posting them over the next few days.

I worked on the SBS Gladiator engine.  It is as awesome a piece of aftermarket resin that I’ve ever come across.  I also did some work on the “Battle of the Barristers” Hurricane.  This is a very nice kit, but Airfix put fabric effect where the panels were actually metal.  Therefore, I had to do some scraping and sanding and then coating the area with Mr. Surfacer 1500 black.
