The webs are cool and all, but I have no use for them. I'd rather have more seats on the sheet:) Thanks for the link!

oh .... well, the seats look really cool!



OP - did you encounter any unusual challenges assembling them? did you use an photo etch folder? superglue?

thanks

I soft solder the sides and the bottom. You don't need a folding device. Smaller Parts were super glued

those seats are sharp! its gonna be a shame to cover them with paint kinda, that metal looks pretty nice just as it is!

i notice on the instruction sheet it mentions spider webs and also rivit strips. sure enough on that (very wicked looking) photoetch fret, theres some strips of rivits to use somewhere!

i gotta get some of these seats...

May not have too, may be able to give them some type of chemical wash that would cause patina etc, very sharp seats for sure
