AFTERMARKET REVIEW


Pacific Monograph Navigation Lights Template Tool

vol_2_image

Getting navigation lights right can be a challenge, but when you do, they can be stand-out features of your model.  In this very interesting and frankly creative offering, Pacific Monograph follows up on their Wingtip Lights set (see our review HERE) with the Scratchbuilder’s Special Navigation Light Template Tool.

This set comes with 16 clear styrene blanks that vary in color (from clear to red, blue, green, purple, and pink) along with a nice etched brass template with 50 different circular, oval, and varying teardrop-shaped patterns.  The template is thick and heat resistant, of course.

The idea here is to heat the styrene to first soften the plastic of your desired color and then pushing it through the template where it will assume the desired domed shape.  Then it cools and solidifies.  The new light can then be sawed or razor-bladed off the template. There’s also a “wet method” described for making navigation lights using the template (it has its uses), and the template as well can pull double-duty and be used for scribing, too.  These methods are all very clearly described AND illustrated in the full-color instruction sheet included in this set.

In summary, this is a great set and is quite useful for those interested in marking their own very realistic navigation light details on their models.

We extend our sincere thanks to Burl Burlingame of Pacific Monograph for the review sample.  You can visit them on the web at www.pacificmonograph.com where you will find this and many other products and their webstore as well: http://www.pacmonoshop.com/catalog/index.php
