The wooden pieces to the Wilfley Tables.









The plastic pieces for the tables. This will take a little practice as I've never had to make plastic look like metal and wood.

Jerry looks good so far and ought to be an interesting build. Of course I have no idea what the thing is supposed to look like so I might even get a bit of an education.Keep going.

It's the details that make the scene. You are working up some great details. On the topic of making plastic look like wood, if you need thoughts let me know.

Jerry,
For the plastic, give it a little grain with a file, knife blade, Emory board or end of a drill bit. Get the fuzz off. Paint light grey primer. Then start putting on washes of other wood tones, chalks or IA. Try to use the same colors you use on other wood you have done as they look amazing.
It is really simple.

Another great looking piece of equipment coming together, Jerry.

Some progress every day is a good plan.

Jerry,
Just caught up with your thread. The machinery looks complicated to build and paint but you sure are doing an excellent job! Looking forward to following the structure build!
I'll follow along after I write "don't be late" 100 times on the chalkboard.
