Fixing the stub in Here will give me an attachment point to add the super glue

Now onto the seams on the vinyl, they aren't that bad but leaving them will spoil the look as when finished they need to like they are made from modelling clay, I used a scalpel to trim the seams on the last ones, but there is a risk of gouging the part

So this time I decided to try a few different sanding sticks to see if any would work, the standard micro mesh ones I have just made the vinyl go furry !
But this one (it's mylar I think) did the trick

Not too shabby methinks

Lol, I only started it yesterday, it's already two pages long due to my shameless padding out with the sprue shots

Cheers Ken,

I reckon it will be a really fun build, I built the motorcycle and sidecar from "A Close Shave" a while back and it was a really fun little kit.

By the way mate, although I have been a bit quiet of late I have still been following everybody's builds, and I must say I love the use of the gold leaf on your ship build, I've never seen that done on a kit before and the effect is really nice and far superior to using gold paint

Righty ho then, time for today's madness.

I didn't get as much done in this as I had planned but I have done a little bit so I might as well post it up.

I started with the "auto crank mechanism"

Shown here in the destructions thusly
20150430_120403 by brundledonk, on Flickr

All the parts chopped off the sprues ready for clean up.
The instructions tell you glue the "glove" halves around the end of the crank, I didn't want to do it this way as it would make painting everything a lot more difficult than it needs to be, and as I was planning to use Alclad I wanted to avoid tape on the painted parts.
So I was banking on the vinyl being flexible enough that after gluing and painting I could just squeeze it in (we'll see how that worked out further on)
20150430_120356 by brundledonk, on Flickr

After seam cleaning (what a pain in the bunghole that was) I sprayed the parts with zero rubber black laquer, it goes on nice and smooth and dries instantly so it makes a great base for,the Alclad

Lol

Haven't stopped laughing at this.
Fantastic Pete. Nick Park would be proud of what you are doing. [wink]

(Mylar sanding stick...clever move)

Looking forward to the next episode, after I've taken my meds.

Hehehe cheers mate !

Hopefully Mr Park will see this and be so impressed that he immediately offers me a job as head modeller on the sequel "Wallace and Gromit Of The Dead"
Seriously at this point I would gladly work for 3 squares and a new pair of trainers

I bought those Mylar sanding sticks ages ago at a show thinking that they were fine Micromesh, up to now I have been using them wet on plastic and not been too impressed with how they work, but used dry on the vinyl they get rid of the seam with no furring up at all

I gave them a quick blast of Alclad aluminium, waited for Trevor, and when he appeared we took the opportunity to nip outside in between the rain showers and took this pic

The parts just push together without glue and can move, hence everything looking a bit wonky donky in the pic
20150430_131715 by brundledonk, on Flickr
Back in the Petecave and Trevor thought it would look cool if I sprayed a bit of pale burnt metal over the shafts (I think he just wants me to breathe in the Allcad in the hope that a "Mrs Unicorn will appear)

20150430_131402 by brundledonk, on Flickr

So with that duly done and dusted, my glittery poop laying horned equine friend, then advised that a nice sepia wash added carefully around the joints would look bang tidy, or "simply spiffing" if you are speaking the queens.

The gloved hand got a coat of matt White (I must say I was impressed at how well the seam turned out after sanding with the Mylar stick again)
20150430_140331 by brundledonk, on Flickr

WARNING ! The mediocrity of the following pictures may cause drowsiness


The brackets on the end of the glove got a lick of black paint
20150430_144203 by brundledonk, on Flickr
Then a coat of Vallejo modelair silver (applied with a brush)

Now after lulling you into a false sense of security with the above post, it's time to raise your blood pressure with the killer blow !




Did my hunch pay off ? Would the gloved hand bend over the end of the shaft ? Would the sky turn black and Fire and brimstone fall from the heavens ?

DA

DA

DAAAAAAAAAAAA !
20150430_145548 by brundledonk, on Flickr

Yeah it went on fine lol, it scraped a little of the silver paint off, but that was pretty much the sum total of the drama
20150430_145609 by brundledonk, on Flickr

After a lay down in a darkened room with a couple of slices of cucumber over my eyes to recover from the excitement, I added a little bit of sepia wash to the bracket to help blend it to the other parts

After that I assembled the bracket that allows the radiator grill to move up and down to deploy the "crankomatic" and sprayed the bulkhead in Alclad steel and gave it a Flory dark dirt wash (note the pin marks on the part, Imreally should have sanded them off, but didn't think that they would notice) I'm blaming the Alclad fumes

20150430_170757 by brundledonk, on Flickr

And just for sheets and giggles I did a quick test fit so I could have a looksee
20150430_170916 by brundledonk, on Flickr
20150430_171019 by brundledonk, on Flickr

The hand crank got a coat of zero rubber black and the handle masked and the shaft got the Alclad chrome treatment

It's not a super mirror finish due to the black not being shiny enough, but it's still pretty bling and looks about right

While I had the chrome and black out I did the rear view mirror too

It wasn't a great success to be honest, it was my own fault as after laying down the Chrome I used a cotton bud to polish the surface and it marked the finish (if you zoom in you can see the lines where I wiped it)
I should have used a peice of cotton, but such is life

While not being my greatest achievement, it's still pretty reflective
