In truth it doesn't get any better and more inspiring than this...

Thanks Very much!  Marty, I can send the STL files if you want. Need to supply the hardware and styrene tube rollers is all.

In the home stretch now.

 I finally made the vertical exhaust I had originally designed. Made from 1/8” (3.2mm) styrene tube. I glued a piece of solid styrene rod in the lower end and heat bent the tube around a Sharpie pen after dipping in boiling water. I sanded some wrinkles in the bend to simulate homeade construction, and added a dent. Then I glued on a styrene support bracket, and primed it with Krylon Grey primer sprayed at a distance to create a textured surface. Then a base coat of Prismaclor pencil “paint”, browns and rust colors. Then sponged with rust, brown, tan and black pigment powders and the spritzed with Dullcoat, also sprayed at a distance to create a mottled effect. Then some dark brown dits added with the wet tip of a Prismacolor Premier pencil. Not a hearty finish, but it’ll do.







Bought an 0-80 die and threaded some .06 diameter brass wire for the axle hold downs. Secured to the sled with 0-80 nuts.

Stunning! Superb modeling, exceeded only by your sublime texturing/weathering.

Almost there.
Did you “thin” the end of the tube to make the wall thickness scale?
I would have thought you’d use brass tube for the pipe at least.
Going to have to try the pencils.
