Hello

just take a picture of our Xrot R12. Meanwhile with cladding made of milled and engraved 1 mm GRP.



In order to see the working engine later, the flaps can be opened naturally.

Those hinges are so small I couldn't even HOLD them, let alone BUILD them! The rest of the model also is adequate. -- Russ

Hi Kim,

Here is another picture of a failed hinge, a bore has run.

The rendering of the blower head is so good it is scary.  You are putting many of us to shame.
 
If the men in white coats frequented this forum there are a number of members would be in lock down.  They would place modelers like us who feel compelled to model rivets (both ends) that will never been seen on the finished model into a warm, quite room with subdued lighting.

Hello Lawton,
first of all thank you for the recognition.

But the good thing about it is that here in the forum you are among like-minded people who understand and would know this. People who collect model railways in boxes without unpacking them will never understand this, perhaps they belong more in the warm well padded rooms. The main thing is that we finescalers stay together and understand each other.
