Ok guy's.............

Following on from Bob' here's mine at just the next stage along, lengthy clean-up and much messing around with the Bonnet [hood] in order to get a neat fit. Those awful mould lines along the body were as bad as Bob' suggests and far worse than it would appear Harry's were?

Anyhoo, a few pic's - more to follow as this cyber build unfolds.

I'll upload some more areas later - I'm trying to find pic's where it's obvious extra work or subtle differences are apparent.

Later ...................... Andi

Here's a quick pic' of a completed styrene version [RoG]. I'll have to post any further details later as it's the early hours here and I really shouldn't be messing about online right now!!
Suffice to say I found the kit a real bear of a build - it took me weeks of filing filling, re-building, making good then more filing and filling just to get that bonnet [hood] to fit properly, and the rest of the kit didn't seem much better. Having said that given the time you spend - it will reward you with a very handsome model.
I have a very extensive build album showing most of the areas that I worked on if you'd care to see it?

Anyway here's the finished build for now...............

Give us a shout if you want more pic's?....................... Andi

Chris..............

I've sent a direct mail to the address you gave to dragonrods - sorry to appear such a numpty, hopefully this will establish contact.


Ettore............

I know you of old --- DON'T get too excited!!!! This is a series of projects that have been slowly revolving around in my head for quite some years now and as such are definately not on the fast track to anywhere. The whole thing is based on the Model T, and at the minute I'm scratching ancillery parts for the TT commercial version. The axle, chassis and associated hardware. This I then want to extend with differing body and bed styles. I have realised this is all applicable to the standard model T in all it's guises too - most of which [as you know] are not available off the shelf.
One thing I have come to realise during my research is that the Model T is in no way definative and almost evolved on a weekly basis, and even major changes are difficult to determine.......... this has not helped.
Anyway I really wanted to keep a rather low profile with this project in case it came to nought! It just so happens I need as much help as possible getting through the process of understanding the moulding and casting side of things. If I do get the hang of it? - Who knows what may happen! [ smiling now].

Thanks both for your interest...................... Andi.

I saw your post and thought I'd help you out. Just send me an email and I'll teach you the best way to do a body mold. My email address is resinslinger@msn.com. Chris.


Hi Chris .....................

Is your reply too involved to post here? - I only ask because I really could use that information as well. I'm at the moment working on a project to bring some vintage type bodies to fruition.
If indeed your reply may be a bit to involved to post may I ask that I too could be a recipient of the explanation?

Cheers.................. Andi.
