You sir, are a master in superdetailing.

Can't wait to see how this will look in the end. Thin paint coats I'm thinking to not cover over that amazing detail.

Love it !!!

Thanks, Richard! But it is still far from painting, and this process will not be the easiest.

Replaced the bolts, made a pair of mounts and set the side skirts:

All those microscopic details rebuilt !! That's very impressive . But fortunately, this extremely meticulous work is not necessary to make the Rye Field Model kit a good kit.

Thank you! Yes, the model RFM (not without problems) is not bad, but there is no limit to perfection.))...Each independently chooses the degree of "disease".))

Fantastic job. I’ve been calling modeling a “sickness” for years, lol. But it did keep me sane for 23 years of law enforcement, and cold, in Alaska.

Thank you, James! And the name of this disease is "progressive schizophrenia". We are all sick ...)))

Very good!
The tracks have a bit too much slack in them; can you move the idler at all?

Vladimir,

I am simply in utter awe of your work!! I can't express my admiration any more than that. Frankly, I can't understand how you make most of the almost microscopic size details that you do, not to mention that you make many, many duplicates of the parts that require them. Can you give us any idea about how you go about creating those beautifully fashioned, tiny parts? Just one example are the cotter pins on the tow bar. How on earth did you make those, and how did you drill holes so small? The tiniest drill bits I have for modeling are maybe 10 times larger than what would be needed to make the holes you made for those pins. Wow!!

Absolutely spectacular work...incredible!!!!

Thanks, Curt, Thomas, Dan! I am pleased that my work causes emotions .... I drill the holes with a hand Drill made from a printer motor. Photo bits will show later.
