Another one done - I did a little scratch building on the stacks and some miniature rivets.

Outstanding, as usual!

Would you share your tips on the stacks and rivets?

Cheers

Lovely Paint Finish !!! :D

Shame the Wheel inserts Don't look more like the real thing ;)

These ones are Very Dirty, they were often a kind of Dark Charcoal with the polished rimes as you have.

Stubbo:
they are Ferrules similar to the ones we use on the lead wires to connect to the guide,I think RS components may sell them in several sizes.

stoo23:
the inserts are the original Monogram inserts while not quiet correct they are the ones that came in the original kits.

Yeah I Know !!,..Recognisable by the typical 'Period' Very Bright Chrome!,..lol

I was NOT being critical of the 'Build' at all,..Please Note My comment re the Paintwork !!

As i said,..it is just a 'Shame' that the whells Don't Look Better,..do you Not all agree?,..I Blame Monogram !!

:D

BUT,..there IS always the Old 'Trick' of using extremely Water Diluted Writing Ink, a few careful 'Washes', can Offer a far Greater 3 Dimensional Look, due to the Water/Ink combo's capillary action and Kinda takes that Extreme 'Edge' off the Chrome, also makes the Wheels look a Bit More 'Real Life Used/Slightly Dirty'.

Have often Done this With Older Similar Era Wire Wheels etc.

The Diluted Ink method is also Fantastic for getting that Grime in the Corners of Engine/gearbox casings etc, and can add a very realistic appearance.
NB; there doesn't Need to be Much Ink in the 'Wash' !!

Cheers
;)

It is always a problem when doing a "restoration" like this,whether to use the original parts or make the car look right. I have some Revell that are complete,BUT I have used new inserts or wheels just to make the cars look right,the original parts are stored just in case I decide to make them more original.
