Brilliant build! How are you attaching the skins to the brass frames? Also, are your hinges "sculpted" out of aluminum?

This is gettin' embarrassing! thanks
Frames are just glued, two part epoxy stuff called Rapid Steel. Not sure how well it will work yet as most glues don't like ali much, even if they say they do Seems o.k. at the moment and these parts are not load baring but we'll see.
Yep the back door hinges are sculpted from ali, I used steel for the bonnet hinges tho as it's a bit stronger. The front doors have a different type of hinge which I'll do in ali sometime soon.

Did a bit more on the back door today....


The hinges are glued on at the mo, really just to hold them in the right place when I drill them. nuts and bolts will obviously go in later...


Thanks again for your cool comments

Are you going to paint all the brass parts (that would be steel in full size) rust like they are in real life?

Thanks mate



As I made the hinges for the rear door, thought I'd see how it hangs...
First job was to make a start on the door shuts




Tidy them up a bit...


Then sling the door on.... When I say "sling" I mean faff around drilling tiny holes and putting ridiculously small nuts and bolts in for a few hours
but then...open


and closed, well baring the latch that hasn't been made yet


I still need to do the top and bottom shuts and actually finish the door tho...but it hangs

thank you all for watching

Truly amazing, excellent workmanship and the detail work is just fantastic.
I'll bet, you have at least two bowls of skill for breakfast every morning
