How long did that take?
After cutting and narrowing, the welding part took a good 1.5 hr (total of 2.5 hr). Moving all over the place and welding one spot at a time.
That's a long time for a 15 minute weld. Nice job. It would drive me crazy to take that kind of care to do that job. Kudos. I hope the customer appreciated it. I'm not sure the paint job was worth it. New paint materials are much better as well as new techniques. The center still has to be re produced why not the whole thing? What's the point? Is period correct that important?
Sorry hdferg, I'll be sure to consult with you on all further build decisions. Jay, looks amazing. Can't wait to see te tank!!
I didn't say it wasn't amazing. special 79 does great work. My question was it worth it? saving the paint that is. It was a honest question. I wasn't trying to be a smart ass.
Maybe I should consult with you. You are "the old pro"
Hahaha. I just loved the paint job. Definitely not period correct. And I thought about starting with new tins and recreating the paint but this seemed like a fun way to go. Use what we got!
It's funny it used to be about how much you spent. Now it's about how much you don't spend. Thanks for filling me in, I'm just a fat old balding dork.
What was about what? There's this new laminate process that allows you to remove the paint in one piece and transfer it to something else. You should try it on your face, Matt.
So uh . . . how about them knicks last night huh. Good game don'tcha think!
If this was really period correct, you'd have an angry union member trying to sabotage the build.
