Perfect, soft and clean, great work in the reforma.Lograste a great result.
I am back with only small update. I am in process of making hinges.
Hinges are the parts that connect to the arms and allow arms to move relatively
The build method is, again, interesting. Each hinge (except Hinge 4 which is actually a connection rod cover) is made of two small tubes that will hold the pins, external and internal parts. The idea is to partially make the external part, create tubes around defined radius (I used my wife's knitting needles which I think every builder should have. I mean knitting needles ), then need to install the internal part. Afterwards, need to align and install the tubes. And then need to close external part, trying to align everything. This process is very time consuming for me. There are another ways to make these, (for example the one proposed by Yoav Hozmi, my good buddy, where no holes and tubes should be made and cardboard laminated side cheeks should be connected with thin wires hidden afterwards) but I will stick to a originally proposed system
I tried to show the build process of one of the hinges, I hope it is seen well.
4 hinges gone, 3 to go
Great work on those hinges, look great.
Hinges are fun!!! but I take the rolled ones and roll a length of printer paper around a wire I am going to use as the pin... then cut the rolled tube around the wire into 3 or 4 equal parts assemble the parts to be hinged and place the rolled sections with the wire in place in the proper location and a drop of superglue under each section of tube...just have to be careful!!! I think after typing this a tutorial would be handy...will see what I can do...as I have made all sorts and types of hinges..and pictures are better than words!!
I know this method.
In this case the gluing tabs serve not only as internal reinforcement of narrow paper strips around the holes thru which the tube goes, but also act as a spacer that helps in positioning of side cheeks. This is a very good idea. I thought of other ways also but the proposed way looks reasonable
Alrighty, finished the hinges. All parts that their edge is seen were laminated onto cereal box cardboard and edge colored to make it look in scale .
Then I switched to bucket, i.e. the main feature of any digger.
No special trouble here, instructions are pretty clear. One thing that went badly,
was incorrectly installed teeth, which I managed to fix later. Here I also laminated the side cheeks and the side cheeks reinforcements. Just to make it look in-scale
Great job there! Everything looks very good.
Very nice clean, and wel fitting parts. This is the best one could expect of this model. Great job!!! Keep on plugging away at it!
I like the work you have done on the bucket. The teeth look great, as does the rest of the parts.
Thanks, I will continue this log ASAP
