Re: Sd.Kfz.10/5 - "Its Mine Now"
Not much to report other than I am off my game in plastic land. The mojo is hurting a bit due to too many things going on recently. Holding it together just the same, went out and swung the golf club a bit to clear the cobwebs! Enough of that Poo and here is some pics...
I ran some horizontal planking first (not seen) and started to make some roof panels. Picked up some extra thick Aluminum foil from work and doctored up some Lap-seam panels.
This is just after giving the panels the treatment. A little etching solution to weather them up a bit before installation. As you can see in the last picture above, the panels appear to be just blackened. After drying some natural rusting pigment show up.PLEASE NOTE: I am using a PCB Etching solution. These chemicals are dangerous and can be harmful if used incorrectly. I have taken the time to learn all the dos and don'ts when using this product and have read the MSDS (SDS) (Material Safety Data Sheet) and I use all necessary PPE (Personal Protection Equipment), like safety glasses, gloves and plenty of ventilation. This is a similar solution used by the Photo Etching Companies to make PE Add-on sheets. Some really great stuff and even fun to use...when used with caution and safety!
Back to the build!
Thinking they will pass. After I took the pics today, I added a quick filter to some spots and the entire roof. I need to finish the top rows of siding and I may pop on a fascia board as well. Got a ways to go on this but it is moving forward.
Thanks for keeping me company!!
