Sorry about the wait guys. I have taken this dio to where I have decided to let it be as is. I have already started on another dio. So I am leaving it as it is and calling it quits. If anyone is interested in this dio I am willing to sell it for about $45. Let me know. Otherwise I am going to just dismantle it and use it for spare parts.
No. Everyrhing, including the sidewalk, road and building structure are basically poster-board which has a foam material sandwiched between two very thin paper. Then I just spread some wall filler in very thin layers in some areas.
I am not sure what I want to do with this little diorama but I might just add a Technical with a couple of figures or find some other theme. But so far, this is what I have on hand. Still a little more work to do on it.
The completed build. Some tune up here and there but its pretty much done. Thanks for watching, although this topic is not of so much interest here on this forum. But I appreciate the little interest you have shown here. Until my next build guys. Chow! My apologies for the bad pics.
31. I decided use another wire that I found in a dumspters. I simply cut both ends to reveal the copper wire inside. Then I measured the distance between the two Electro attachments and made the cut. I also
wrapped a much smaller wire around the the thicker one. I just thought it would add to the overall look.Then I primed the wires with black charcoal paint and then dried brushed them with silver.
30. The cable attachments. I had the choice of two. The first one and the second version. I choose the second alternative just beacuse of the way it looked. Alternative 1.
Alternative two mounted together and base painted. Will dry brush it before mounting it to the Electro attachments.
The cable will not be glued as I want make any changes if I am not 100% satisfied with the look after mounting it. So there are mount holes at each end that will make it possible to just shove the cable in the and out it the need arises. This is one of the main reasons I chose to use lead soldering thread as the cable. It makes it possible to pose the cable exactly the way I want it without any movement.
29. The Electro cable that will attach to both the pod and the engine. I used a soldering lead thread is what I used to make the big cable. A thinner steel wire is used to wrap around the bigger cable. THese will be painted black then dried brush with silver.
