      Kaitanium, I have used plasticard from evergreen plastics. This works like a charm if you know what you are doing. I think forming one out of putty would be a bit hard to do, and flimsy, just my thoughts on it.

      winglets? for which models? if you're referring to those used on the 737-ng or a continental 752, then i personally go with the resin InFormation winglets. at $5 for two pairs you can't really go wrong...

      Braz made a set for the B767-400 conversion kit. I figure I'll cast an extra set to put on my B777

      Cheers
