While waiting for my Sweetheart to wake up, I decided to redo my steering column stalks. They had been bugging me, and decided that they were too big, so I made new ones, which led to other things....you know how it is!...lol....

I really appreciate you showing the process.

I would never have thought of this method to create the latches.

I still have a ton of work to do on my house after moving, so have not even begun unpacking my modelling stuff, but will definitely try replicate some of the stuff you have done here, one day.

My pleasure, Shaun!, thanks for following!! I too have been working on our house for the last three months, which is why updates haven't been as often, but things are picking up, and the Pagani body, and all the other 8 kits are in the process of being painted as we speak!.....looking forward to seeing your builds, bud!!!

That's a smart way to make seat belt latches. Im stealing that!  Usually I just sandwich the ribbon between two squares of plastic and paint the end red. Works quite well depending on the style of seat belt.

...and now for some pictures we snapped at model assembly factory, where parts are getting ready for paint....

 

I wish I was this organized! Very cool workshop too. How dusty does it get when you paint inside? 

I still spray everything outside.
