165DS in primer

165DS in primer

Hooray ! The Ruston 165DS is now in primer !

A nice coat of etching primer has persuaded me that everything is looking OK. The can is getting empty so it will off to Frosts to get another I think. To make sure I got a decent result, the can was warmed in the sun and then heated a little more with a hairdryer (careful with this) as the garage it lives in is a bit cold at the moment. For a change it got a decent shake too. Even then the first squirt was at newspaper and not the model.

A bowl of warm water for a few minutes works as well. The remains of the kettle after a brew usually.
