Randy, You've heard this a thousand times already, but this is truly incredicle... mind-blowingly incredible work. Hearing it a few more times won't hurt ya I don't think! I'm pretty sure your name sounds familiar to me because I may have seen some of your 1/35 scale work before. Maybe on Missing-lynx, armorama.... one of those. I want to say it was maybe an M2 heavily brassed up and detailed out... Could be wrong about the vehicle, but pretty sure it was you. If so, I'm not at all surprised that you can do this on a car model. Your 1/35 work was just as awe inspiring. Anyways, hope to see this one all the way through to the end!
I search on the topic, could it have been a Bronco's 1/35 AA Staghound?

That sounds very familiar. I think that's it but I really want to say I have seen a couple/few more of his . But yes, that Staghound is the main one I was thinking of.

Randy, you obviously are not from this planet, humans aren't meant to do work this amazing. Now please go back to your home planet as you are definitely making the rest of us look bad.
This is one of the most incredible builds I've seen so far.

Randy....wherefore art thou....Randy? I think you may be allowing the truck and all of the parts to patina on your shelf but its sat there long enough. Don't even bother to dust it off, just please get back to work on it.
Every time I see there's an update to this thread I'm exceedingly hopeful you've provided us with another update and gotten some more work done on your build. Alas, this is not the case. Sigh...

A very, very belated thank you to all that have commented on this build since the last update!!!!!
I am back on this one and will hopefully finish it this time with no more long breaks

Q: what's the conduit? and how in the world did you slice the bezels?
Posted 21 October 2014 - 06:34 PM
OMG!! I'm completely and utterly awestruck. Phenominal update.

Thanks Joe ! The conduit is just copper wire wrapped around a wire core....
The brass benzels are made with a slice of tubing that is given a concave shape using the dapping tool.
Hi Brad , Thanks for the kind words.
Thanks Mike !!
David, Feels good to be working on this one again !
