Amazing work. Almost a shame to have to paint it as brass looks so nice.

Hi Folks,

Thank you bill !

Hello Harvey, thank you my friend !!

gtziaf, glad you like it.

Thanks Dede.

Sky, appreciate it !

Hello Michael, Thank you sir and I like your're second idea better :D :D

Hi Stephen, I use Tix solder for a low melt solder and Novak silver solder for a high temp. For heat I use a basic small pencil iron and a small butane torch for large work such as the base plate for this one.

Thank you Tom

To Mr 68 , yes I thought about it, but am already doing a build that will be in 'natural' metal finish and wanted to show a painted model with this one...


A couple of pics to show my 'metal finish build'...

small update...

added a fuel pipe and painted the inside flat black so I can solder the top on.

Working on the shock mounts and the A arms and the made up the rather crude beginnings of the front spindles.....

Thank you for looking in !
