    Thanks for the comps guys...
    But if it weren't for Volkerc's generosity then this would not be happening?

    So who wants more pretty pics of the Ali stuff?
    Ok I must admit these do look very nice and the originals were measured and remeasured to get these right!

    Now onto the question I wanted to ask 'everyone'...

    You can see that the original parts was in fact Ali but with a dull silver anodizing finish? I( have spoken to a very good friend and I can reproduce this finish on the Ali parts you will receive in your kits... but at an increase in overall cost.

    Now I can do this BUT... as others will know as a whole batch it is 'cheaper' but If only a few want this finish then I won't do it as it will not be cost effective.

    So fact is if the whole group want it... consider it done!

    To be honest I would prefer to dull it through weathering. I actually kind of like it shiny.

    I would say, "YES", due to the fact this undertaking is to achieve the utmost accurate replica of the original prop and not just another close / good enough for now attempt, those level of kits are already available, so again I say "YES" go all in! Hopefully the rest of the accurate obessed group will agree!

    THX for all Your Efforts here Mojo & Volkerc!

    I would prefer the dull silver anodizing finish on the parts. Is it possible to have an example done for everyone to see? Might help convert some.

    I would say that a Shiny regular finish would be the best IMO.... if this is going to turn out like I think it will... there won't be too much weathering on mine....I want mine nice and pretty.

    I understand your request bro... but if you knew the industry, I'm not gonna send 1 set of parts to get the treatment just to show what it could look like? It's just not cost effective?

    BUT, rest assured I will not proceed on the Anodizing unless it truly reflects the same colour and effect we are ALL after...

    And I repeat - If everyone wants - everyone benefits the cost reduction!

    Even if it were only a few $'s extra?

    Ok... I'm getting mixed signals on this one so I'll shelve it for now.

    Ultimately, I would do what you think is best and leave it at that!

    Hey Mojo!

    I have to say, this looks FREAKIN' AMAZING!!!! That being said... My opinion is that start it from a "new" look, that way people have the choice exactly how to weather it for themselves. I'm sure I speak for more than just myself here, we have a huge amount of faith in you! If you think the finish most accurately represents the "original" starting point maybe that's the way to go? So if it had that (anodized) finish, and was weathered from that point, this would be most accurate. If the finish came from the weathering, it would seem best to leave that to each person. I think cost is one thing most of us is concerned with too, so it makes sense to ONLY offer one way or the other for such purposes. I say everyone who put down and interest to buy one, vote. The most votes wins. fair, no? Democracy at its best! I would take either, but my vote is: shiny
