...and another test:

At last... something that's actually finished: the interior.

The belt material is a slightly textured plastic, and not the easiest thing to thread through the photo-etch fittings!

Oh, and look who's turned up again...

bestest,

I love that blue, it's flawless. Ya know I dated a gal that reminds me a lot of little miss pin up, I think they had about the same personality.

Thanks, guys... I haven't been idle the last couple of weeks, but progress has been slow. Got the Patto's Place decals on: mixed feelings about those. You could certainly do with some spares to stuff up before you get the hang of them. You should soak them much less long than you think you need to, because if they even start to separate from the backing paper in the water, you're in all kinds of trouble... Really, I should have painted the stripes, but I should have thought about that BEFORE doing the blue...

bestest,

M.

Well, crikey. I'm glad these are done. The Fine Molds parts include the makings of much more in-scale jacking hooks (if that's what they are) than the inch thick cast iron slabs represented by the plastic parts. Four bits of etch to fold, a length of brass tube to cut up into the mounts, and a reasonable number (ie more than you'll need) of rivets/fasteners.

Fold the etch, wiggle the fasteners through, slide the brass tube on the end. Eight times. Did I mention that they're tiny? Tack'em with superglue, and this is what you get. These'll be painted black, because I don't like the look of chrome, and I found a car with black ones fitted (the same one that has the black roll hoop that I already borrowed...)

bestest,

M.

...looks like I have some cleaning to do!
