Hi Guys, progress pictures, showing correction to the LDHK, ( YOUR SUGESTION ON A PIECE OF STRIP WOOD was much better then mine) all pictures show it DRY FITTED) let me know Mike WHAT you think, as you remember I had a QUESTION of the white spots occuring,,,it was determend that The CA accelartor was causeing the problem while using the 100% acotone nsail poloish remover, I just thought I would TRY A FIX one last time, I used the acotone on the effected spots and low and behold the white spots were gone,, SO FAR HOLDING up, does anyone have an idea as to what to apply NEXT, a wipe on poly etc let me know. Don

Hi Don,
It looks like you are making some progress. I use Danish Oil to finish most of my models including my Blandford Cross Section, it is easy to use wipe on and wipe off the excess.

Mike Does it protect the model from dust, and does it matter if I already used MIN-WAX wood conditioner, and MIN-WAX natural stain. Don

Don the only thing that protects a model from dust is a glass display case. I have not used Danish oil over Min Wax products, I would suggest experimenting on some scrap material before using it on your model.

you are absolutly correct,so far the display cases inclding the PLXI-GLASS ARE VERY EXPENSIVE, if I was younger I would make my own out of plxi, but not now all the big tools are at my SON-IN-LAWS LKE CABIN ON LAKE CASIDY, AND I DO NOT DRIVE ANYMORE almost 5 years since the Drs. said no. THANKS Don
