Here's a little Progress Report.

I continue to test the 1/8" version. It is running well with no sign of screws backing out of the crossheads. Taking a break from the testing I worked on the 3mm version. This version will use Rods Photo-Etched in Nickel Silver for me by Håkan. They are closer to scale. Which do think look better?




Draped across the pilots are the raw castings for the screws that will replace the Frankenstein bolts now on the model. Believe me, this is not the way you want to get screws.

Bob,

I like the detail on the one set but they look a little heavy. I miss the detail on the photo etched set.
