The model T in 1:25 scale
A lot of time are craftsmanship for sure
That's for sure. Anthony has posted here before. He drops in on occasion with new pictures. It takes not only craftsmanship but also a great deal of patience.
Ken, just out of curiosity, did you see my latest model, the '26 Tudor? I posted the message including a picture on Januart 17 (http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/29/45759.html?1200610797) , but got no reactions at all. And I was hoping for some (constructive) comments...
All of which goes to show that the Dutch are skilled at building more than just dikes and windmills! <g>
Great looking car Anthony. I missed that post.
How did the gold foil work out for the brass look?
wow, you must love your hobby! those are fantastic. do you build from kits or from scratch? would be neat to see pictures of a project from start to finish. keep up the great work. john
Thanks Dick. Ik stel het op prijs!
Ken, the gold foil didn't work out that well. After rubbing it to get it stuck to the radiator the very thin gold plating on the surface simply disappeared! But I discovered a company that does gold plating on plastic AND resin parts. Next time I'll try that option.
And John's question: Almost all my models are based on kits. But for the special models, like the 1926 Tudor, I use the basic parts like engine, chassis and so on from a kit and modify the body (converting a customized body into a stock body) or built it completely from scratch.
