    Hi My friend, sorry to be a pain in the a** but you need to change the sequence of one of the lights at the back. The wiring should coincide with the position of the lamp. Decide which arrangement you are going to keep and change the other side.

    For example, on the left hand side of the rear of the car you have the single blue wire coming out of the inner hole. On the right hand side it is opposite. So choose a sequence and keep it. Either both blue wires in the inner holes or in the outer holes. The function of the lights on the rear of the car should coinside. If the brake light is on the inside, it would be on the inside on both sides etc.

    I am just nitpicking here Robert but i am sure someone would have noticed and better correct these little things now as you are going along. That car would look cool set in a field with a tree near it, a hajt tas-sejjieh or a wall made from rusty 45 gallon drums. You can even throw in an old Refrigerator ot washing machine as part of the wall. The rest is up to you, overgrowth, grass and soil all over the place and maybe some cat or dog. That would look really cool. If you opt for the 45 gallon drums, you can keep on rusting and weathering these too. I loove this project. You are doing a grand job of it.

    Depends on the scale and size of the car. You should measure the one you have at home and just go with those measurements. It looks really good and well done, and definitely a refrigerator but it might be a bit too big. Just measure the real thing and scale it down.

    Maxi_Model wrote:just a simple suggestion, if you are not going to place the tail lamps, could you check with the original car and see how the holes behind the lamps where, the wires had to pass from somewhere and was there any handle on the luggage booth door?

    a small tip for the chrome items, first make sure of what material the original items were made of before doing any rust. If the item was iron or steel, a mild brownish rust would start appearing in the areas where chrome would be the thinnest ( normally due to excessive polishing or damaged surface). If the item was alloy, the first symptoms would be blistering, since an oxidization would start forming under the chrome layer and so blisters would start forming, eventually the chrome would crack/pop and a whitish powder will appear. If the item would be brass or copper (not copper plated but solid copper) green spots will start appearing on top of the chrome in random pattern or as a rush in certain areas, this greenish stuff is the oxidization of copper or brass which will start emerging from micropores or microcracks in the chrome surface.

    Eventually on all metals the oxidization is unreversable, unless the chrome is stripped entirely off the object, cleaned well and re-plated.

    another suggestion, for the deflated tyres, have you tried immerging the wheels (up to the point where you want it deflated) into nitrocellulose thinner, for some hours? the plastic should soften enough to let you shape it. I never tried this myself, so be careful if you will be trying it, better test it on something else first.

    You are doing an awesome job on that model Smile keep it up.


    Hi. nice sugg..emm regard the thinner no, i didnt tryed but i will try it with an extra one.regard the chrom tips do you have any thecniques how to do the last 2 tips you told me please

    Sorry for the late reply. Actually I never tried to replicate oxidized alloy / antimonium oe brass, but the antimonium normally starts bubbling from beneat the chrome layer till it burst and then a white powder starts emerging (the oxidized metal)

    the brass does not have this bubbling effect, but starts sppeing green rush out of the chrome / nickel pores, so it starts showing sparingly then if the oxidizing goes on it concentrates in the are where it was mostly effected by water or mist.

    I hope this short info on oxidization helped, if I manage to find some photos I will post them.

    Wow man, that is one cool refrigerator, and you are telling us that this is your first attempt at scratch building? You need to give us some lessons. If it weren't for the broken shelf, you could just plug it in and cool that beer!! Well done, very well done!! this project is getting better all the time.

    Brilliant scratch building Robert.

    The wiring you're using for the fridge compressor seems more in scale for the tail lamps (at least if my eyes don't deceive me)

    Prosit and keep updating us.

    i will have to see that at home, our blasted internet is filtered here and i only see red crosses. I really love this build, your spirit Robert and the way you immediately listen to our suggestions and criticism and try to get everything right. It is also good that you are taking lots of pics along the way, that way you can correct anything as you go. These are the signs of a master modeller in the making.

    Robert, you can use that fridge compressor for your airbrush. Just joking, what a great job you did with that fridge. Well done, this is really going to look good. Try to dent it a bit, it would not be handled carefully if it were thrown away or else just make its door hang on from one hinge only. What a great project this is, there is so much you can do, you can let your imagination run wild.
