Finally assembled the rads ... pity the fans didn't work out, but in the end I don't think they suck too badly:

I have been away from this thread for too long, and when returning I cant believe my eyes!
Amazing work and skills, in addition to the stamina you have to make duplicates of everything.
Simply amazing!

Your "Builder Award" is hereby upgraded to gold! It's well deserved!

BTW, my favorites are the TIG welders and the euro pallets! :y: :y:

Thanks - i was quite chuffed with them myself :)

I've got some more tool chests on the go, after that I'd like to do some compressos - once I think of some way of doing the tanks :)

TBH I don't think "stamina" has much to do with it - thanks to a long term injury/illness that's been "chronic" since July 2010 & "acute" since August 2011 I really can't do very much for very long at all.

For instance, yesterday I managed to put my own socks on, do about 15 minutes sanding, "make" some soup, walk 200 yards at a resonable pace, spend another 15 minutes putting those rads together - and that was the best day I've had in several weeks, if not months ... even though I'm paying for it today. On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being no pain & 10 being the time I ate something with ketchup on 2 days after having my tonsils out, I was up to a 9, maybe 9.5 earlier.

I won't say that having some small projects on the go, and a small bunch of likeminded enthuisiasts to shoot the badword with is the only thing that's kept me from opening my wrists up (down, not across) - but it's been a big part of it :)

Money is extremely tight now, I've been making extras in the (probably misguided) hope that by selling them, it'll pay for the one I keep.

Anyway, I don't like to whinge - although I have got quite good at it :S - I just wanted to say thanks, again :)

... and I do appreciate the irony of the first "gold" builder award on a vintage Tamiya RC car site is for building things that mostly aren't Tamiya, vintage, or even RC :D

Finished the mk.2 tool chests ... not that different from the mk.1, but the two halves are seperate & I used M4 stainless cap head screws as "castors" ...

Time to think about selling some of these ... thought I'd try it as a "set" of a mk.2 TIG welder, trolley & gas bottle, mk.2 oxyacetylene set, mk.2 tool chest set & a pallet ... price is still up in the air though ...

Jonny,

Simply awsome, every thing is to scale and spot on recreation.
I found a guy on a Drift site that also builds scale RC equipment that could provide ideas and other insperation if it helps, i'll try to find a link.

All the best and keep up the great work when money allows :)
