Just thought I would post up a few pics of my progress and see what everybody (anybody?) thinks. Here goes...
The plastic was a Freebie! An old sign from work. I have been using superglue to tack pieces in place and then I would lay down a thick bead of Goop Glue on the insode seam. The Goop seems to react somewhat to the printing on the sign and make a crazy strong bond with no roughening up of the plastic at all.
I am a lttle further than this right now...starting to putty some of the lines. The last pic has had the top hastily "painted" with MS Paint to make it look a little more like the other plastic.
Also the right fuel tank has been replaced so that it looks just like the left one. The 2 inch PVC just wasn't working out to the right dimensions. I found some Finch feeders that were perfect at Meijer's. Just had to pop off the top and pop out the bottom and fill them with expanding foam to make them sturdy.
I'll keep updating this as I go, but I seem to keep jumping from one part of this suit to another as I start to lose interest in one area and gain interest in another. I always go back to one area, though... (sooner or later)
Lemme know what you think!!!
