Filling time..

Hi everyone, hope you are all getting on with the new RMWeb... I must admit, I'm not at the moment, but I'll eventually get used to it..

 

I placed my order with Scale Hardware on Thursday, it was shipped friday, so as you can imagine, I'm rather excited about the delivery so that I can get another large chunk of the remaining work done and ticked off of the list of things to do on the K2.

 

In the meantime, I have been working a little more on the lubricating pipes. I bought some stainless steel tube from Perfect Miniatures the other day which is teeny !! 0.33mm Internal Diamater.. about 0.5 mm O/D (I think) so I have been able to create the tiny fittings which I think force oil from the lubricators under steam pressure into the cylinders. A 7mm steam heat pipe next to it for scale..

This one took an hour or 3 after which it decided to ping itself onto the carpet, but I'm pretty happy with it.. Should look lovely when it is all piped up to the lubricators I reckon..

 

JB.

Impressive B) That really is the attraction of 7mm scale for me - you can put loads of detail in, and still be able to see it reasonably well :D

What the attraction of going cross eyed on small details you could ignore in 4mm :lol: :lol:

 

Nice bit of piping BTW :D Scalehardware delivery is very quick isn't it
