    Hi Przemo

    How the heck have done that, it looks as if it's real all right.
    You even have the ridges made with the flick of the wrist when welding 8)

    Can you post a photo of the next section of weld un painted so we can see how it was done
    The amount of detail going in to this is just amazing.

    Oh and a few photo's of some of the tools you have used would be great also!!

    Next and soon please :roll:

    Looks great! What did you use? I have used Acrylic Gesso as a filler and thought about using it to make rivets and weld seams.

    Check out electronic solder for your cables and piping. You can purchase it as small as 12 mils (.3 mm) in diameter that works out to be about 8 mm in 1/25 scale. It is easy to bend and it holds its shape. You can even purchase plumbing solder that is 2 and 3 mm in diameter for larger piping.

    Good Luck

    I hope your exam results were what you were hoping for. This is an excellent review you are posting and it has inspired me (a complete novice) to give it a go.... There's a bloody lot of track segments :)

    Keep up the good work Przemek.

    Thanks

    You are doing a marvellous job. Your attention to detail is astounding. I think I will continue to do the tracks as provided in the kit, but I have used your images to create plans for next time :)

    Simply amazing

    The quality, detail and scope of your model amazes me. I build plastic armor models and this rivals those any day.

    Very nice work. How do you make holes look so nice? What tools do you use?

    Amazing....

    How long does it take to make each link?

    Yet again, you are showing amazing results. How do you get time to study and indulge in this pastime?
