Not much to report today, threw some primer at the chassis and tried it for size against the floor pan, no probs there.
Only other small event was that postie called today with the only bit of AM to be used apart from the BMF. Here it is, a teeny prewired distributor. I could have had the leads in another colour but as I believe the engine was untweaked, I thought black would be most appropriate.
That prewired distributor is very sweet indeed buddy, and good to see the fit is going nicely on the kit. I'm getting the car bug bad now, I must get the Zephyr finished quick as I wanna get in on this GB ASAP.
Yip ya rippin` along nicely with this one Prof............grand job buddy , oh and btw......NOOOOOOO TAPE!!!, she looks a stunner clean IMHO fella...........but then i do like the idea of the headlamp out......oh dear!!.........i`m not helping much am i
I was thinking the same thing regarding the caps and wiring Prof, I'll have to get some. I've not had the pleasure of drilling out one myself but I can imagine how time consuming it could be, and tough on the eyes even with an optivisor especially if you've not got the best eyesight for closeup work.
Quick pair of questions fella.....you usually use grey primer eh? Do you find the Titanium Gold covers over grey 'properly' - I stirred and shook it to within an inch of it's life but I had to put three or four coats on and it still wasn't perfick - much better over black
Also should the Titanium Silver be greyish? I'd assumed it would be a Bright silver similar to chrome but it is actually nearer to Dark steel/gunmetal I reckon - is this right?
If yer think yer one in a million, chances are, YOU AIN'T!
Primer colour (for me anyway) depends on what I will cover it with. Generally, I use white base for car builds, the only reason I didn't on my one was the the tin said use grey, wish I hadn't. I find the two Tamiya Titanium colours are to say the least tricky and have only really had success when applied through an AB. If you're brush painting it then yes, you will find it an uphill struggle.
Titanium silver isn't a bright shade by any stretch, a dull silver in reality, if you want bright, use Tamiya X-11 Chrome Silver, that's pretty bright and brushes on well with a good stir.
