Hi Vladimir,

As one of the “working people” (haha!), I also ask you to keep up the great work, and to please keep posting! In addition to admiring the quality of the very small parts you are fabricating, it’s very interesting to see the collection of materials you are using! Wow -

How are you making the recently posted wire shields? I can’t tell if you are bending a piece of metal to make the shield, or, if you are using triangular material? If you are bending sheet material, the consistency in shape and size is incredible! how ever you are doing it, the result is great - or, it’s an angle piece mounted upside down? Who knows - sure looks good!

Happy model building!

Nick

Making is simple: you cut a strip out of metal (0.3mm), 2mm wide (1mm per side) and bend under a 90 degree angle.



We cut the ends of the obtained parts under the necessary inclination and solder everything into one part. Everything is simple ...

Nothing is simple. nothing. If this type of fabrication were simple, then I could do it. My admiration for your work continues. Please keep posting and thank you for sharing.

Awesome !! When I see the level of your work, I think workable tracks of the kit will be just a formality.

Do you ever sleep. Not only is there an incredible level of detail executed with outstanding craftsmanship but you are able to maintain a good if not fast pace on your work. More impressed with every update you post.

Thank you guys for the kind words.
I will explain a little. I started the work in August 2018 and continue to the present day. Therefore, I post is old work. But after a few posts I’ll go online mode ... and posts will be less frequent... and I will become less bothersome ...

M240 machine gun. Soldered the shield...

Manufacturer forgot about an important detail. I had to eliminate the omission.
