Week 91 This week we get the brakes and other details
The bits we received
And what we did with them
This is another week of quick assembly, then the parts all have to be painted. First the brakes.
Now the pedal support. This will be painted red oxide to match the bottom of the hull, rather than the ivory that Hachette suggest.
Finally the steering wheel.
The steering wheel assembly was painted gunmetal, and then glued in place. Then the whole gearbox assembly was given a final coat of gunmetal. Now I can start adding the other details.
The brake units are painted ivory, and then the details are added by hand with gun metal.
The brakes are glued in with super glue.
The pedal assembly has been painted red oxide, with the pedals black. The pedals have been dry brushed with steel to represent wear.
Here they are glued in place.
