Attaching a model to a wood base.

22 May 2009 - 05:15 AM

A few years back I completed a model of my dad's work truck.

It's been my "Masterpiece", best model I've ever done, and as such has become very valuable to me. I had a wood base and acrylic top made for it. I used thin wire wound around the front drive axle (between the duals) and through small eye screws also between the duals to secure the model to the base. Lately the model has been getting loose. I don't handle it too often, but I'm sure moving it from time to time, and a trip from Pennsylvania to Florida has contributed to the model getting looser on the base. I want to re- attach the model to the base in a more secure way, bus also try as much as possible to keep the method of attachment as hidden as possible. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can achieve this? Thanks in advance.

1/24th scale Ford LN hood.

I know PLASKIT Resin from Canada produced a nice 1/25th scale LN long hood for the Ford short hauler kit. I've used them before, and they're great. The only drawback is the months it takes to get one. Lately I've been toying with the idea of making a LN long hood for the Italeri 1/24th LNT 9000. I thought of starting with the Italeri 106 Aeromax, and re designing the fenders to LN spec. i was wondering if anyone has made any prototypes for resin casting, and what advise you might be able to offer.
