Even with the Medicine Man doing the voodoo hex dance around my aura lately I was able to get some modeling time in.

Here's the ubbercool radio set from Griffon.

Separate components just like the real thing. I added a little thicker bumpers between the mounting brackets and also a .5mm hex head bolt head on top. Also solder worked as the power cable between the units and going up into the firewall. Small sections of brass pipe cut to simulate connection collars and plugs.


Love the locking clamps. I'll have the antenna lead coming into that box on the back. You can see the bolt heads a little better here.


That ugly seam on the heater vent will be hidden by the dashboard. or battle damage...


Another angle of the radio, can't see it well because the seat is in the way, hang on, I'll fix that...


:woohoo: Working Hinges! For now at least. I used .2mm stainless steal Beading thread that you find at the megahobbystore for the hingepin. It came on a spool like thread. I got .2mm, .8mm and I think it's 1.5mm. This stuff is NICE! and cheap. Used the slow cure thick CA this time so maybe we'll keep the hinges clean and workable for a while.

Thanks for looking and all the kind comments so far!

Thanks for introducing the "bling-bling"-factor into modelling

I have to agree with Rick, uber-cool work!

More please, I'll follow with greatest interest.

Cheers,
Johannes.

Wow! Looking so sweet mate. I hope you leave the doors open so that your hard work can be seen after you've done painting .

Coop, you know I haven't even thought of that...not looking that far forward. That's one of my problems when I build.

I'm humbled by such kind words from such a talented crew here...thank you.
