    That's looking pretty smooth

    No way that junk has a V8 in it  ... oh wait ... sleeper!    Coming along good!

  5. Foxer added a post in a topic Looking for wheel tutorial   

    This one's not it I see but shows added nuts from rod.
    simulating lug nuts on wheels ..
    didn't come up with one that's what you mentioned, but those seem a good start.
     
     
  6. Foxer added a post in a topic What do you do when they ask?   

    I let people know the cost and time it takes to build and I don't give my time away for nothing. That usually cuts it off in the bud.
  7. Foxer added a post in a topic Stripping paint when body work is involved.   

    I've found the same .. strippers ruin body putty. I haven't tested extensively as I don't enjoy redoing bodywork, as much as I like that part of modeling. I always just sand down paint when bodywork/stripping is required.

    Three TR's .. wow! I think it was keeping the SU's in sync that finally did me in ... I was lucky if they went a month before the power dropped. My sports car bug hit me a few years later and stayed thru five Porsche 924/944's ... galvanized bodies and the sweetest suspensions in the world.
     
    In other news, the TR dash pieces are coming together .. I scraped the resin dash clean and started fabricating all the little pieces ... nothing worth a photo yet.

    Yeah, the ones that looked right were fairly small. I did see some pretty hi rez ones, but not what I need. I do 3D design (in spare time) making 3D objects and manipulation of textures in Photoshop. I could enlarge but that doesn't usually come out well. Maybe it's worth a chance since it's going to end up so small.

    I really appreciate the offer, Hugh! t one point I was thinking of using a piece of veneer, but I think it would be too thick. A sheet of photo paper seems the thinnest I can get and would be great to have a piece of veneer to photograph at high resolution. The 1/24 dash is 1.75 x about .5", so I wouldn't need a large piece. Here's a photo of my TR4A dash so you can see what I'd like to get close to.
    If you have something that might be close, I'd be happy to just photograph it and get it back to you.

    Thanks, Skip. I've been there but their photos are a bit low resolution for my needs I want something that is 1500 dpi and 1.75" with the grain ... that's about 2600 pixels ... the nice ones at certainly wood are 400, but some of their teaks are perfect in color and grain ...
