I can't believe the detail and I'm so happy to hear it won't be a rat build.

WOW,WOW,WOW Just MAD skill there. Randy If I may ask what are you using to shield the finished solder joints
when you add to the area and not melting that joint apart? Great work and Im learning as you go. Thank you.

Top notch work! I'm in agreence with everyone else, excellent craftsmanship. I would love to be able to work with metal and shape it every which way but then to do it at such a small scale is even more impressive. Can't wait to see it all finished

Is this going to end up being painted at any time? it would seem a shame to do so.

Hi Folks,

Mike, Thank you buddy :)

Austin, Appreciate your kind words!

Thanks Greg

Hi Jim, thought you would like the new direction.

Thanks David :) :)

Hello Danno, Good to see you still around :D

Thanks Red

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 :D


Going to go with a hood but no sides. The piano hinge is from ModelCarGarage....

Unbelievable stuff Randy. If I hadn't been on-board since the beginning, I never would believe these last few pix. You've some mad skills and I'll bet some mighty sore fingertips.

Looking good, Randy. Real good.

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?

Hi Folks,

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...
