Re: 1/14 All Metal Rock Screener

That looks great! I love that you even did that much work and detail on the side-support gussets

Welded and with powder coat should last forever.

Needed to do a Scale-check for an OMH metal thing i ran across. Something important but very rarely seen on the model course.

Re: Are you greasing the pivots of your excavator?

Maybe try to start with something like Teflon dry-lube for the dirty areas, or Light machine oil for the better protected areas?

Jerry, good call on those movies! Those are pretty funny.

Re: Ford Custom Deluxe station wagon - 1950 Woody

I picked up several wrong Testors paint colors, and randomly mixed some together. Kinda slopped it around on the body. Also touched some of the trim with metallic. (Really glad Testors still uses the...

Re: Ford Custom Deluxe station wagon - 1950 Woody

Thanks Jerry!
Yeah, when i saw the metal Woodie i did a lot of scale estimation before it got to 'Wrap it up'. Being thin steel the needed body tools are a little different than working plastic. I...

Re: Ford Custom Deluxe station wagon - 1950 Woody

I'll have to keep those in mind for some bigger projects. For scale the last pic in first post is sitting on a set of 'Junkyard-Jackstands' from WPL c-truck rims.

It doesn't have much room to...

Re: Ford Custom Deluxe station wagon - 1950 Woody

Re: Shovel mechanics

I've never run one.
Since you'll probably also use a cable drum to control the Boom, you should be able to use the stick Hoist and Slew to chew through all of the exposed face in reach, then lower...

Re: Shovel mechanics

Since we're not rivet counting or wanting THIS exact model, it's possible to be much easier.

Re: What's everyone been working on?

Nice rigs DoubleD. Gonna start build threads?

Re: 1970s Dodge Tradesman kustom van
