  2. If I cant get the webbing to look right I’ll brush on some light grease. Any thoughts anyone?
  3. Tonight I’ve managed to varnish and weather the bulkhead and wooden floor pan. I’ll be drilling holes to insert brass pins to represent the floor fixings tomorrow. I’ve never been one to follow the plan to exact specs so I think my interpretation of the bulkhead looks quite good with the grain of the wood running in two directions. I need to think about what to do with those useless valve springs. The ones in the kit just don’t look right. I’ll be having a go at making new ones over the weekend…….how hard can it be?
  4. Evening all. Work is coming along nicely. It’s quite difficult to get the webbing on the leaf springs to look like they are covered in grease.
  5. Thanks Spiny. I’ve got a few more photos to upload tonight. I’ve seen what others do on the forum and I’d like to do the same.
  6. Let’s see if I have the patience to bother taking photos and uploading them. It seems a huge amount of faffing about but anyway here goes my build of the Italeri Fiat Mefistofele So where’s the bloomin picture!!!
  7. I don't want to sound like an idiot here but I haven't used a finishing compound on the model I've recently finished however, why cant you just use a commercial compound like t-cut?
  8. https://flic.kr/p/2mtLEKN I have been asked to give my opinion on some wheels made for an Italeri Alfa Romeo 8c Roadster by Nick Edwards. I’ve not even started the model yet but putting these wheels together has been a joy compared to me re-spoking the wheels recently on my Airfix Bentley build. To start with, Nick has printed some guides at the back of the rim to show where each set of spokes should start. I still consider myself as a novice in making models however, the instructions are clear and easy to understand. Never having seen a 3D printed object up close I’m staggered just how accurate they are. Everything is supplied in the kit from wire for the spokes to the rim nipples and even the air valves. There is even a little tool for pushing the rim nipples in place. There are plenty of extra parts in the kit. I wish Nick had started making these parts for the Airfix Bentley Before I’d actually started mine. https://flic.kr/p/2mtGyrE https://flic.kr/p/2mtRqHP https://flic.kr/p/2mtQiBk
  9. A few more pics. I must confess it seems to be a bit of a faf getting the pictures from Flickr to here. I'm probably doing something wrong but I'll get there in the end. I had a bit of a struggle making the wooden handles on the filler caps and it took four attempts to make the bonnet screen.
  10. I used "Florists" wire to re-spoke them and drilled them from the inside. I did make a jig but thought I knew better. I'll use a jig next time.
