The drum finish is Testors Metailzer Gunmetal sealed and then washed with the Tamiya Dark Brown Panel Liner.....sealed again with a Vallejo Satin coat.

They could use a light rubbing of pencil lead, haven't decided yet.

And thanks.

Thanks, I'm pleased with the results so far.

Internal rigging has begun, with EZ Line my choice of material. I tried something new with gluing ends of the EZ together and forming a loop. Since these first lines were emerging from the pully together I thought this would allow (1) attachment point. The effect is ok, more of a representation of the line and not completely accurate.

Thanks man.

Rigging continues, I used a toothpick to give tension to the first 2 lines as they contacted the control stick. Once tension was applied I could adjust the angle that I wanted to glue the rigging.

The following shots showcase the completion of the internal rigging. When possible I just drilled holes and threaded the line through parts rather than glue individual lines.
