Ha...no bait Grin.....I have a , lot of real work projects that need focus.....for modeling, there are some SBS steps I need to go back and reproduce and photograph in the next two weeks, and 3 pieces I need to flush-out/touch-up and finish weathering by the end of August......so with no other upcoming mag committments....I want to use my spare time to hopefully do a bit  more cycling.

Thank you all for the kind words and comments, and for your interest during the project, its helped me along through what was often a quite nerving build. Grin

Thanks Arno.


Had to go back and do the steps for an SBS article on making the broken concrete for the shed project. As you can see, they don't all always crack in a manner that you want them to,  Smiley Angry or that looks good and correct; so it's always good to make extras. But don't throw the not so good ones out, they can always be cut or broken, and used in pieces on another project, or as filler in areas where they won't be very visible.

(These are fresh out of the mold, and just dry after the surface washing. Coloring , staining and weathering still needs to be done. In 1/35 scale the square pieces are about 1m x 1m. Thickness is .060")

1 m (meter) might be a little bigger than you meant. Would the size be closer to 1 inch square? -- Russ

  A couple of points here , Russell , Old Bean . A meter is something you read when you want to find out how much electricity you have wasted typing all the drivel you do . And I suspect that if you were to scale the pieces of plaster that Marc has cast up to 1:1 they would measure about 1 metre square Only a guess mind you .

Oh, fiddlesticks. I read his post carelessly. I shall flog myself with a cat o' nine tails tails.

By the way I thought that electricity gadget was a metre. This is all very confusing.
