But at this level do not.
I occasionally work with and never get as clean surfaces and uniform, it is always necessary to use putty.

Continuing with my project of building a M38A1.
Buy a body c7 to 1 / 10.
The issue of axles and wheels will decide if I build the 1 / 6 or 1 / 10.

Well, I squeezed in some more time on the floor.

Got the hardware done on the trans panels.

Finished the toolbox lid, and made a spring latch mechanism so it would stay closed, but open easily when needed


...and then started the seat mounts

The brass pieces will attach to the bottom of the seat frame, they're are made just like the real thing...at a certain angle the seat can be removed. I started the rest of the seat frame but was not able to finish before work. I will finish it this weekend and post pics.

That piece is beautiful!
With your permission, I will copy the latch spring for the hood of my R / C

Sure...go for it. By changing the shape of the piston tip, changes the force required to open/close the lid...start longer than you need, and shorten as needed.

I was thinking of doing another of these for my hood with a finger pin coming out the grill that will be pushed to release the hood...but that's for later.

Been workin on it over the weekend...pics will follow later on, just stopped to take a break this morning. I think the sides will be going on today...as long as we don't lose power again.

Well I finished the seat frame, and even did the gas tank and strap.





I started the side panels and did a quick mock up to see the overall view.





Back to work tomorrow, so not sure when I'll be finished with the sides. I was hoping to get these finished today but there were some issues with the floor that needed attention before sides could on.

Take me to your leader...I just figure, if I can see it, I can make it...sometimes with a little more effort than others.
