I'll be eighty!

What are your issues with rattle cans? I have used them on a number of ocasions and admit that doing a bit of testing does save time and money in the long run.

Dust and cold are the big problems along with not shaking them properly!

Hi Jannis, slowly getting caught up with some of the builds on Mayhem after my house move.
I have just found this one again and it has come on a long way since I last saw the thread.
This is a cracking build.
Well done again.

I like your castings. I have noticed that resin casting is a very common activity in this hobby; certainly due to the need to replicate parts.

Great progress Bassplayer:O)
