Hello Russel,

Prototype looks great. Thought about a wee bit of grey primer to bring out all that lovely detail?
Thank You.

Hi Guys

Popped in halfords yesterday and bought a can of "gadget blue". This is what the RHTT modules look like with a bit of paint on and if there are no major concerns or amendments I'll get a full set ordered from shapeways - probably & hopefully smoother! (have a look at the chassis on the MPV to see what the finish is like)

But Iím sure you can get the idea from these...no sanding or filler - just a coat of paint.

Looks really good indeed. If you are getting the handrails etched, might it be worthwhile to do the tank ladder as well?

Hi Adam,

AFAIK theres no ladder on the tanks but there are ladders beneath the control & genny modules - they are to be included on the etch.

All the handrails are being reworked at Ben's suggestion so there is no join at the corners - will have a fold point instead.

Were getting there....

Russ

Hi Russ

That does look very good indeed.

Having had a quick look at some photos, I did wonder (as Adam suggested) whether some other parts might be photoetched too.

I am thinking in particular of the tank top caps (with rivets) the end pipe covers and possibly the lights and the footsteps.

cheers

Ben A.

Hi Ben

Additional etch parts....

the tank top caps (with rivets) - you'll like this! - yes, if would like to advise on the number of rivets/bolts!

the end pipe covers - which bit is that?
 
and possibly the lights - probably a no at the moment - thought to be too fiddly. Will be fine when done in FUD.
 
and the footsteps - were on that already - recess across the underside of the modules to accept a plain etch section (easy glue) and steps that down.

Thanks for the good suggestions!

Regards
Russ

Further to our conversation earlier about the blue on the set, check out the last set in the youtube clip and then express your concern about the shade of blue hehehe!!

This is looking stunning!!
