The black and white colors scheme with a bit of silver is rather elegant, but I'm sure it will look even better once you've painted it a really vivid green.  Grin  Angry  -- Dallas

Thanks Gordon!
Would be really neat to get all our (and Chuck's) 1/16 stuff together someday.
Of course the logistics would be a nightmare!

No reason to have the change gears if I dont have the levers and the speed chart!
Nothing permanent just laying there, I need to be able to paint it all separately.

No sense having the change gears and such without the leadscrew.

Jerry,
Both gentlemen dont need my help in any way.

A beautiful job.  Surely it will fit in with the other pieces.

Fabulous!  Plus a couple silly little nitty-gritty questions:

-- Did you make your own NBW's out of hex rod and round rod?
-- Did you make the little (dummy?) hinges on the bottom cabinet door from separate segments of rod ... or score the rod?

Cheers,
Dallas

Thanks guys!
Glad you are all enjoying the project.

Dallas,
The NBW's are store bought. I think they are Simpson.
Funny you should ask, I have been thinking with the limited sizes available i should just do my own.
On the hinges; I put the rod (.050") down with the PVC cleaner, then sliced them up, carefully.
After that I added another drop of the cleaner to lock them in.
I really wanted to make them operable but the big ass chunks of plastic I used for the bases scared me.
I was not sure about opening them up.
I could have done them in sheet styrene but really liked the flare at the bottom.
The sacrifices we make for our (limited) sanity.
