Scale I Build

Found 2 results

  1. When I chopped this ‘32 you can see how I tackled the A pillar. I have seen other chops with a section removed from the mid point as well. The problem I had was the huge mis-alignment that required leaning the top section foward and the lower section back to re-align them….which makes three cuts. I was not about to lengthen the roof! 😬 I figure on my next one, I will cut out the entire A pillar and then shorten and file the two ends to match the cut angles on the body and roof. Has anyone done it this way, or have a better idea yet?
  2. Please excuse me if you've seen this one here before. I had a search for it here and couldn't find it, so I reckoned as I've been sharing all my other builds with you, it'd be a shame to omit this one. Anyone who has built this will know what a lovely kit it is. Anyone who hasn't built it...do yourself a favour and get one! The paint is custom mixed 3K (I think..) and has about 8 coats of clear, wet sanded and polished for ages. Thanks for looking
