Mike, Thank you buddy
Austin, Appreciate your kind words!
Hi Jim, thought you would like the new direction.
Hello Danno, Good to see you still around
Dave, Thank you!
Clay, Thanks and I get by with an assortment of heat sinks and pre planing. For heat sinks I use self closing tweezers, wooden clothes pins and bits of wet paper towel. The planning comes in when deciding how to assemble the pieces. I try to join the largest parts together first, they usually take the most heat applied the longest time. Then work down to the smaller stuff.
Jason, Thank you!
Hi Rob, I'm coming around to your idea slowly but surely
Going to go with a hood but no sides. The piano hinge is from ModelCarGarage....

I see your early post about what you use in soldering, but I can't tell what flux you have there. That seems to be the steaming road apple in my path to a proper solder joint...could you enlighten me?

Thanks Derrick, Sorry it took so long to come back!
Hi Brad, Thank you my friend
Thank you Chris, I will get you the name of the stuff I use.
Not much of an update, Making up the window frames and shot a little paint on the front end to see how that would look with the copper body...
