Re: Chieftain Stuff

Hi John,

Hope to have the BCF and wipers to show soon then will start on the gun mount. Having to balance being ridiculously busy in the day job, filling Christmas orders and trying to finish commissions :-)

Best regards

Dave

Hi All, Chieftain Driver using the new bust and Bone Dome. Bust is designed to take a Dragon type head.

Re: Chieftain Stuff

Thank you Stephen. Hi All, I am going to try and get the BCF bracket finished this week then onto the Gun mount. Decided today to modify one of our British Tanker busts to something more modern. Suitable as a Driver for those who don't want to chop a perfectly good figure to bits. For those that may...

Re: Chieftain Stuff

Hi All, First test castings of the Bone Dome. Also found the feul cap masters but not sure there will be much demand for these as the kit ones looked pretty good.

Re: Chieftain Stuff

Hi All, Not far off finishing the "Bone Dome". A little more work and it will be ready for priming and then moulding. The Ear Cups will be seperate and I've done the lining so they slide on with the head, seems to work and just enough tension to hold everything in place. I've added some interior det...

Re: Chieftain Stuff

Hi All, I have now got the Bone Dome shell to the shape I want and am ready to start detailing it. Top made for the Mk2 Clansman mount also.

Re: Chieftain Stuff

Hi Stephen,

Yes should be able to. Might need to add a bit of your webbing but can still do the main components.

Best regards

Re: Chieftain Stuff

Hi All, Reasonably happy with how the flexi mounts are now casting. Still very slow setting compared to our normal resins and tear if I try and demould too quickly. That aside I think they will be available for sale very soon. Just need to confirm before I make the parts that the Clansman should be ...

Re: Chieftain Stuff

Maybe Steve but I've already sold some and not for Chieftains ;-) Sometimes its just because I fancy making something. The No2 burner was another ;-)

Re: Chieftain Stuff

Hi All, I've painted the lead and added a couple of yellow sleeves to each which appear on a number of on-line pics of leads. Based on the Marks post I can't see many people realistically having the BV open so will produce a solid version unless anyone feels an opening version is wanted? I'm going t...
