[LVLC] We’re knitting some water piping – Dolbeer part 3
before I proceed with the next set of details part, I decided to give all components a basic coat of paint, since its hart to paint them, once the details are in place. Later, I’ll spend a weathering to the whole Steam Donkey.
The last bag of parts holds the water piping between the water tank and the boiler, including two injectors. This means a lot of pewter fittings and some length of brass rod. Oh yeah – and the knitting guide…
All fittings have to be drilled to take the brass rods, some of them only 1/8 of an inch long. Piece by piece, the whole pipework takes shape until the main sections were ready to be installed on the donkey boiler. It took more 3 hours to get all the piping together.
But at least, the patience will lead to a very well-looking result. Now the donkey is ready for the weathering. I don’t know yet when I’ll finish the last step.
Actually, I’ve another big project in mind…
sieht super aus! sehr gute Ausführung und Umsetzung. Bin auf die Alterung gespannt.
Sehr detaillierter Kessel. Alles ganz toll.
Ich bin immer ganz fasziniert von Deinen Berichten und freue mich schon jetzt auf den Nächsten.
