Thanks Dave! Interesting idea. I am planning a multi-layer finish, and I'm hoping all this will still be visible afterwards. Lot's of paint tests to do first.

I don't know about all of you, but I what confuses me is the fact, that there is no slightest sign of imperfection in Chuck's work. Yes, yes, Chuck, I know you are doing a lot of tests first  Wink
But compared to what I am able to do myself and to what I see in severeal forums around, there is no light and shade in your work. I am always striving to show here my work in its best light, but ... I do know (of course) what I failed to achieve.
So, hats off to such outstanding results!

I'm sure you will see the imperfections, light, and shade soon, Peter. Chuck hasn't detailed or painted anything yet. Just wait! -- Russ

Thanks Jerry!



Front mount, part 2. When I had the first mount printed and cast, I omitted the little ribs that the Fordson axle had alongside each hole. This was because they were smaller than the minimum detail size. But after I saw how nicely it came out, I submitted a second model with the proper detail and crossed my fingers. This is how it looks after some sanding and a couple of test primer coats have been removed. I added a couple of 00-90 brass bolt heads to the top, and some pins to the bottom side that will key into my frame.

That turned out well. Nice to see that crossing your fingers is a viable aid for pushing the envelope on resolution Smiley

Chuck it is always such a pleasure to follow along with your work, you commitment to achieving a particular effect is one of the great aspects of you models. being able to create a convincing sloppy welding job by leaving the welding splatter just blew me away.

Like I said.  Year two and we have raised the bar even higher.

Excellent work Chuck.

Thanks! I was pleased that the details printed, and survived casting. I didn't think to factor in any shrinkage, but it seems to fit.

Beginning the scary part. I found time finally to get the base coat on my frame. I used Tamiya TS-1 Red Brown from the spray can. It goes on thin and smooth. From testing, I found that it is impervious to burn thorough from chipping techniques. I am currently testing different paints to use for the final coat.

I built a simple stand to hold the frame for painting and final weathering.
