Well thanks for not applying any pressure while I'm doing my first metal kit :mrgreen:

Progress was slow because I had to wait for some materials and tools. A lot of new stuff is needed when you're only equiped for plastic models. But now I finally have got some work done apart from test fitting.

Very nice! :) I remember Alkyd paints being recommended for metal figurines in books I read in the 80s and 90s. The solder-ball rivets are a brilliant idea!

This is a privilege to watch you create.

Thanks a lot folks!

More rivet work done. Gets tedious after a while, but the largest parts are done now.

Looking good already. And what a fantastic idea with those solder balls, to replicate rivet heads!! Thanks for that info!

We're all looking forward to a beautiful finished kit. But no pressure, LOL, no pressure.

Cheers, Chris

Thanks Chris! Don't worry, I'll take my time, pressure or not :)

After more experimenting I'm starting to appreciate the material, especially the metal of course. In the beginning I was only thinking how much easier plastic would have been to work with but I'm over that now :) I try to do some low-temp soldering in the less visible areas, but most of the time I use a fast drying epoxy glue. Up to this point I can't see the advantages of soldering over glueing -- except maybe for reversibility.

I'm really starting to enjoy this kit and I wish I had a lot more time for it...

Hi all,

Finally had some time to do some work again after a short-but-well-earned holiday :)

I'm really starting to appreciate the beauty of building an MFH kit. This was less obvious when I first saw the pile of white metal parts when I opened the box, but things really come alive while working with it.

Thanks for watching!
