Looks great!  It takes skill to transform styrene into miniature steel - thus the hoo-hah...

Thanks guys!
I guess I should show how I do my "steel" really quite simple and using different base colors yields different colors/sheen.
I whip something up over the weekend.

Ta' Da'







Special thanks to Paul and Bill for their observation of the carriage/tool post issues.
It is now way to late to fix any errors!  Wink
Please note the chuck wrench, steady rest will come someday.

And one of the whole family;



The backdrop in this shot was a piece of 20" x 28" posterboard, that's why they are so close together!
Working on the wall molds now.
Next up is the grinder & hacksaw, then a universal miller and then another lathe & drill press.
And of course all the other crap!~

O,M,G,! .... Simply sublime. Stunning - simply stunning. The subject matter alone is fantastic, but the execution is just amazing - such feeling and empathy with the originals - superlatives are not enough.

Bloody marvellous.

Not much to say that hasn't already been said, but I am just blown away by your lathe.

Charlie would be extremely proud of you.  You did him real proud Mr. Jones.  Just another excellent example of your work.
