So as I haven't been on the board for a long time I thought id show something that I decided to build on the spur of the moment last October. It was constructed from scrap wood,ply and I bought the cast from a seller at the RPF. I didn't like the swirls I did at first so redid them over the past week and just added a full acrylic wash to darken the cast a little. The panels were made from scrap and are not angled but its good enough for me. I used pound shop paint,and kept costs to a minimum-the only expense being the cast. I may get proper panels soon enough, or hope that someone will offer cheaper vacuformed versions
It isn't the best around and some may pick on the finish etc but its good enough for me Ive tried to keep the finish like the one at LF which has a slightly copper /darkened tone on the cast itself.
Good to be back here.
