Been working on the rollers, decided the machine will have been recently laid-up so there will/should light rust on the rollers etc







Still can't make up my mind if I like or can live with rollers, will review when I have some more paint on main body

Excellent job Gordon. 

To be a superior modeler with styrene you have to be named Gordon, apparently.

> I presume the scarifier is/has been used regularly - so would the tines be rusty...? Grin

Re. the rusty tines: steel when used/scraped/worn, will very quickly develop a thin layer of fresh bright orange rust...over time if the steel is not re-surfaced/scraped/worn the rust will darken through a series of shades, till it reaches a dark purplish-black-brown color. Light orange-ish rust tones occur only at freshly rusted/oxidized areas/surfaces (or leach from joints/pivots/hinges/panel joints/rivets/etc.  that have moved causing the metal there to be continually resurfaced/scraped)

I bow to your knowledge of rust formation.... Grin

If it has wheels, I'll have a look!

Thanks for the compliment Don, appreciated.

Still working away on this, did get a hint that a well known bike rider from the sunshine state and world renowned rust expert was a bit concerned over the roller wheels,  so backtracked on them trying to get some more variety onto the surface.

Not there yet but think it's going the right way for my needs

Now I know no one listens to me - but I think the answer to your problem Mr Gordon is darken the roller sides up a bit or as the professional people say give it a "bit of contrast" and I know you said it has been laid up a while and the following shots show more than "laid up a while" but there is not so much stark difference between the rusty rim and the wheel/roller sides - But after saying all that I think it all looks a superb finish as it stands.

Wish you had posted these last couple of shots earlier, would have made detailing the scraper bars much better.

Got all the dimensions of the OD one , may have a go at it , but in 1/35 .... To go with my Ford tipper


Is that Lynda.  Grin



p.s. Can I borrow some paint?

Don, congrats on your retirement! I hope this means you'll get to do more modeling.

Thanks Ray.  I have been spending time cleaning out the office and plan to start on the cellar but I also plan to build some models and post on Russ' blog.

Hi folks, the roller has flown across the globe, landing on my bench. It is my privilege to carry on with the painting of this very nice bit of scratch building.

Images can be found of these in various conditions, but I had to make it old and weary (as usual.)

Here the painting process is perhaps a little over half finished. Small parts are left off for now otherwise I will just break them.
