Nice work, you are obviously getting to be an expert on these.

Hi as regarding the engine painting I just taped off the bits I not want painting. And prepped the rest with bit of wet an dry paper before painting to give a key to the paint,then it was just brush applied with tamiya semi gloss black, then added the gold to the ports, hi Roy I'll be pinching some your ideas as I intend to carpet with dolls house carpet,and will be doing the leather trim to, thanks to all who looked in cheers mick.Blink



For the preparation of painting, do you think a chemical paint remover can be used instead of paper?

Thanks, Mick.
So far I have received only the first issue and looking at your photos I was convinced that all the pieces of the engine were made of metal as the cylinder head I already own.

Salvatore,

I used a product called Modelstrip which is safe to use on plastic - it is a paste and you put the parts in a sealed bag overnight before washing off with water. I seem to remember that I sprayed the whole block satin black and then masked the area around the copper core plugs using masking tape punched out using an ordinary paper punch. Effect was much better than hand-painting the copper.

When you get to attaching the wheels to the hub, there is an important tip which I would like to share with anyone who is at an early stage like yourself.

Hi that's useful info ,I'm having no issues with attaching wheels ,but any tips would be welcome ,but be best if you put it in the jaguar discussion section ,rather than a individual diary ,more people would find it there ,cheers mick.

Mogwai,

I found the screws which hold on the wheels were very hard to tighten and, when it came to removing them, the thread had disappeared and the screws were too slack to tighten again! Solution: bought a set of 6BA taps and screws to create a proper thread and now the wheels can be taken off and put back on easily.

Hi good idea ,when I put screws in metal to cut thread I always put drop of oil in hole first ,this helps when cutting the thread ,so it don't tear due to dry cutting ,cut it slowly 2 turns forward one back ,I find this prevents thread stripping and leaves a nice thread in holes ,I have metric taps anyway ,cheers mick .BigGrin

Mick,
Your solution makes sense - coming from a largely plastic kit background, I have not encountered this problem before! Pity DeAg don't recommend your method in the instructions!

Cheers,

Steve
