    scratchbuilt keyholes

    With the help of Wizard of Flight, I built a new keyhole detail based on his amazing drawing and scaled overlay he made up for me. Thanks a bunch Alan Your talent continues to help us all. The best part of the new piece was that I was able to cleanly incorparate the MQ-1 right into the casting, meaning no more cutting and filing away the holes. It takes a fraction of the time to plug in the new detail than to do all the other work.

    Thanks again Alan! keep up the good work.

    I've always used that area to install a flow-through screen for air circulation. Will the standard version still be offered, which might be easier to Dremel out?

    I think these are offered as a seperate piece. At least that's the impression I got.

    Oh, and I want one too. No make that two.

    I probably will offer these pieces out if guys are interested in them. In about a month my revised bucket will be available and this will be the detail included. I'm doing this because its far more screen accurate.

    I was lucky enough to get one of these, definitely an improvment over the old ones which were a major pain.
    I actually sanded out the molded-in MQ-1 chip and replaced it with my cast I got, but it still looks very similar (I am aware my camera blows).
