No report this week

Posted by Gerd on Tuesday, 12 October 2021 with No Comments

Hi folks,

due to workload, I don’t have a new report this week.

But I like to solve last weeks question. 331 rivets are added to the cab. Since the where only few attende, I shared the actual photos with all of them :)

Next week, I’ll show the final work on the interior and we’ll start disassembling for painting.

Regards, Gerd

 

[CFF] Detailwork at the cab

Posted by Gerd on Tuesday, 5 October 2021 with 3 Commentsas , ,

It’s time for another update.

I glued the parts of the cab together after adding the rain gutter to the sides. The side walls were cut with extra width and I used spacers then gluing the front and back. Once the glue was dry, I filed the sides flush with the ends. Nevertheless, I need some filler to get all gaps closed and smooth.

Once the filler was sanded down, the long journey in detailing started. Adding the windows and shutters were not a big deal, but the rivet detail took some while. What do you think, how many rivets are used on the cab only? Leave a comment and the closest guess by end of this week will get an exclusive preview of the nearly finished model ;-)

I also started with the interior by adding some flooring. The remaining cab interior will become the last sub assembly before painting.
