[CFF] Detailwork at the cab

Posted by Gerd on Tuesday, 5 October 2021as , ,

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.

Regards, Gerd

    Hi gerd, my estimation is that you used about 450 rivets only for the cab. :-)
