And then jolly well rammed it in there !
Covered it in liquid glue, and after it had dried, clipped off the excess and sanded like A sandy thing in sandy land

While watching the movie last night I had my finger hovering over the pause button on the remote, so if saw anything interesting that I thought might help me out I could stop it and take a pic,

I managed to get a half decent one of the crankomatic

And the kit one for comparison.
It's not too far away, but it looks like the rods are brass on the movie one , no biggie really, but I think I will add those blue wires to mine

A little detail that is missing from the kit is the radio, here it is in the movie, it's fitted under the dash on the passengers side

I though it might be nice to give W&G some bangin choons, so a bit of jiggery pokery later and I had this
20150502_152749 by brundledonk, on Flickr
And it should go somewhere just around here
20150502_152840 by brundledonk, on Flickr
And the result after some paint related shenanigans
20150502_160322 by brundledonk, on Flickr
It's not too bad, but after doing this one I reckon I can make another on and keep it a bit neater, but I'll wait and see how this looks after the dash is painted and weathered, before I decide

So that's the stae of play at the moment, I did want to get all of the small parts done but the chrome parts are still bathing in bleach, the chrome came off really quickly, but the coating that was underneath is a bit more stubborn so I'm going to leave the parts overnight and hopefully I will be able to get them all done in the morning.
Also I had better start thinking about mixing the colour for the body, I'm not too worried about getting the mix right, but I am a little worried about make g sure I mix enough.
We'll have to wait and see how that works out.

Cheers for dropping by

If you have any ideas regarding the floor of the cab please let me know

Pete this is brilliant just spent an hour reading this thread man its good nearly p****d myself laughing, you should get your own series on the box mate, your humour is just plane insane, all them fumes have had a major effect, I think you need to give Fluffy a lengthy holiday he's a bad influence on you mate. You will end up in lacquer rehab otherwise and that's a real dark place, going cold chicken or is it turkey, for the hypnotic aroma of cellulose, man I was on a can a day, now I seen the light acrylic is a great healer.
Stay strong you will conquer fluffy.

Hehehe cheers Gary, I'm enjoying myself too.

I don't think the fumes have had any major long term effects on my fbfbfhfufujdndbsvsvsghxvgj and and I can give them up any time I want, reality is just for people who can't handle lacquer lol !

Pete is having a break from the fumes (the puny human) so I thought I had better update his progress.
Do me a favour and give me a shout if you see the unicorn, I put laxatives in his bag of oats and he's after some payback.

Fluffy

Ps

Don't stare too long into my eye sockets as bad things happen, if you've seen ghost rider you will know what I'm talking about, and I don't think Pete will be happy to come back to find out that I've eaten the souls of his forum buddies

Here are all chrome parts after Pete retrieved them from the bleach bath (bath is something Pete should look into as he is kicking up a bit, but I don't have the heart to tell him)
20150503_131601 by brundledonk, on Flickr
The bleach removed the chrome no problem but there is a kind of clear varnish on the parts that just wouldn't shift, you can sand it or scrape it away, but the bleach didn't touch it.
I suggested a bit of my demon breath might do the job, but when we did a test on a bit of sprue it vaporised!!
20150503_131647 by brundledonk, on Flickrl

I said to Pete that the coating might turn out to be advantageous come Alcad time, so the parts were snipped from the sprues and plent seam cleaning did occur

After looking at pics of the van in the movie, we both felt that the kit ones were a little to perfect and needed some dents, so a few were carved out with the scalpel and then a blob of liquid cement over the top to soften them a bit
20150503_141832 by brundledonk, on Flickr
It shows a little better in this pic, but I assured Pete that when the Alclad goes on it will really pop

next it was time to add some wear and tear to the bumpers, Pete was umming and ahhing over this, but i knew exactly what to do

WARNING The following picture contains nudity NSFW !



A naked flame
20150503_151914 by brundledonk, on Flickr

The bumpers were held over the flame and while the plastic was still soft sme dents were pushed into them
20150503_141308 by brundledonk, on Flickr

Being a typical scaredy human, Pete insisted on doing a test on a bit of sprue before trying the bumper, and he noticed that the clear varnish type stuff that the bleach refused to shift, could be made to bubble before the plastic softened, the effect looked a bit like corrosion so he added it to the front bumper, he does have the odd good idea now and again (not often mind !)

Now it was Alclad time, I insisted that Pete wore his respirator , not for his health, but to prevent the Unicorn appearing (I couldnt care less if Pete snuffs it)

Alclad chrome was used and it was sprayed directly onto the plastic with no undercoat, this is where the bomb proof clear varnish that was left on the parts came in handy.

The trick to getting a mirror chrome finish is a super silky smooth gloss black surface for the Alclad to reflect off of. But Pete wasn't too concerned about getting a really "bright" chrome as it might look out of scale, so leaving the parts as they were and spraying the chrome straight on, should fingers crossed get the effect he wants

And in a happy accident it didn't come out too bad
20150503_150016 by brundledonk, on Flickr

I will tell Pete to weather these parts before they need to be fitted to the van
20150503_150026 by brundledonk, on Flickr

And off course I got the muppet to spray all the parts while the Alclad was in the brush

As you can see, even though the Alclad was sprayed straight over the plastic, they are still pretty reflective
20150503_145929 by brundledonk, on Flickr
There is a really subtle yellowish tint to the parts that makes them look nice and old, which I guess is a side effect of the underlying plastic
Also note the chrome thumb nail, Pete said he was going to paint his whole body in it and get Mrs Brundledonk to dig out her Sarah Conner outfit, for some T-100 role play shenanigans after lights out
20150503_145952 by brundledonk, on Flickr

And a quick hubcap/wheel dry fit looksee

I don't know if Pete had mentioned but I'm a massive Wallace and Grommit fan, "A grand Day out" , "The Wrong Trousers" "A Close Shave" and my personal favourite "The gates of hell" oh wait, I think that's a demon only exclusive.

Anyway, Pete was all set to spray the radiator grill chrome, until I pointed out that in the movie only the surround is chrome and the grill is in fact white.
So out with the gloss white, and a drop of Modelair silver for the badge (and check out the T-1000 thumb, hehe he won't need a lot for his pecker)
20150503_150854 by brundledonk, on Flickr
And wait for it............ The usual quick dryfit have a looksee type thing
20150503_151053 by brundledonk, on Flickr

Wheels and tyres done and quite literally dusted
20150504_125000 by brundledonk, on Flickr

This was achieved by painting sepia wash over the White wheel, a bit of Tamiya German grey for some chipoing and the ever faithful 8b pencil run around the edges of the rims and finished with a super thin mix of Tamiya buff lightly dusted over the face of the wheel and wall of the tyre

They don't look too bad, but are a little more weathered than I told Pete to do them, he has a mind of his own sometimes ! (I think it would be easier if I just posses his body and do it myself
