    Very nice work Kev!
  2. Thanks Manfred! I have these stashed for future reference.
  3. So how is going to work?? Do you roll the test in the flour like bread dough? Do you sprinkle the flour on to it? Do you put the test into a bag with flour and shake it? Inquiring minds want to know.
  4. Hey Everyone, I'm posting today to say that this WIP is still active, altho I haven't worked on the project for a few months now. I'm repainting the house, outside and inside, and packing to move about 40 miles away. I'll be back when we get resettled, with a new man cave and project room. Thanks everyone for watching this project, I'll be back soon.

    Really great work on the wall. I like the texture alot. The trimotor looks gorgeous! I think I'll get one. And I can think of someone who might like your wall design very much.
  6. I'v been lurking around here for a while, and I'm glad to know that I'm not the only that can mess up a posting. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks you guys for the great comments!! Hey Altogether, The progress on the tires is going fine. I have sanded down the treads to look a bit worn and I have also cleared out the center hole for the wheels. I started to build the wheels and ran out of bolts. New bolts in a couple of days, so back to the rear bumper and stabilizers. In the photo below you can see how the rear of the frog looks. This close up photo is rather sublime in it's simplicity, but much detail here. This photo shows a bit better the amount of detail to add. The first parts... I was checking for center of balance to the frame, and something is not quite right, but what? It was about here that I looked at the reference photos above, and looked at the build, and realized that the patterns I had did not represent the entire width of the bumper... You can see in the photo below that I have attempted to add the extra length to the ends of the bumper, to more closely match the photos. The addition of the extra bits looked like the pieces were welded onto the bumper, really cool. However I just could not get thing square and true. So the new full length piece at the bottom... The start of the stabilizer pads... This is the start of the stabilizer arms... The location of the Stabilizers looks much better here (like in the reference photos) than where the original patterns had shown to place these. The Stabilizers were to be mounted to the inside of the bumper instead of at the corners. The fit looks fine so far... The extension legs will be trimmed more like the photo above. right now the frame is still up on the sawhorses (thanks again Richard) and these are extended for now... I like the way this looks...it's starting to get a feel of bulk to the build... I'll be back with more tires and wheels when I get the new supplies. So for now, on with more of the frame stuff. Thanks for looking........

    Great lookin' work Kev! I'm a little confused tho, this looks like a KIT! I don't recall ever having seen you build a "kit", it's always scratchin' for you. Nice work on the bending.
