thnx tony :)


finished the degreaser table thing ( :) ) changed the legs and at the back kept the block so i can glue it on the floor that is flat back so it doesnt stand out ..

kept this one real simple and in the same looks as the rest of the oil / grease area ...

a spare coil with wire but i need to redo the wire since this was made out of a few shorter peices i could not get it tight on there so that will be changed

thnx ron !

when i went on the lowbudget chopperbuild forum i'm a member off some experts in metalshaping said the kickwheel and rollers looked awsome ut the thing needed to be strenghtened so i cut of the old and made a whole new plate that runs from top to botton with a curve..
maybe if i would take a whole day i could make one even better but my goal is to make some simpler equipment since i have so much to make .. and some stuff more detailed ..
in the end lots of people weld some english wheels together with function over form

You've done some very cool pieces for this, Richard! Everytime I look it seems you've put together another mini masterpiece!! I gotta ask...what's left to do?

OK... Now you're just showing off! :D

 

Seriously though, you continue to amaze me with the level of realism you create and the speed at which you do it.

lol thnx guys , and what is next .. i really dont know never had a plan from the start , just sit and build and make up as i go ...
i do need to make some handrails along the stairs .. i think i will be doing that
in the end more small details need to be added like all the wrenches and tools from the fujimi kit..
and maybe i will try to make some special tools myself

i also still have the floorstands for under the axle and a garage jack from the fujimikit .. saving that for last because scratching stuff is more fun

btw davis i have to say on the english wheel i'm not a 100% statisfied with the result so maybe i will make a new one later on

just go for it its way fun  :)



well desided to try and make the english wheel more matching with the rest and used some paint juices fgollowed with a layer of clear coat .
then redid the chrome on the rollers and added some matte rust
added a iron workers decal and a die-hard decal.
then found out a vw bus badge fitted in one of the drilled holes , i thought that looked like fun ,, like one of the mechanics put that in there

This is fantastic work.
