Started out as a very cold morning. Supposed to warm up quite a bit though .. which is a good thing. I have an order from Shapeways in route – hubs, wheels and tires form y Pseudo-AA Flatbed Truck .. the prints also being ‘Pseudo’. They are similar .. based on general measurements such as tire and wheel dia width and such. I have no problem with a generic truck that is 1930’ish .. and Ford AA’ish.
When they get here I will have to decide if I want to use them ‘as is’ (well .. after cleanup) on the model .. or .. use them as masters for resin castings. For the latter it would require drilling and cementing sprues on the sides not seen. It may be easier if I re-designed them with sprues in the print. I’ll make that decision after I hold the current prints in my grimy paws.
Working on a small cardstock shed from Clever Models. Going slow as I’m applicaying individual boards to it and that takes a while. I think the results will be worth it though.
