Rick,

Great work, and those seatbelts are impressive!

Cheers, Tom

Thanks Tom

 

Most impressive, a Zero is on my list so I will be taking notes, I've just taken delivery of RB's IJA and IJN seatbelts as well.

 

Cheers

 

Dennis

Thanks Dennis.  As with any textile belt it's a true experience of angst and love.  The results well worth the time spent.

 

Rick

terrific work on the seatbelts and front office sub assemblies.

Looking mighty good

Keep 'em coming

Peter

Thanks Peter

 

Lovely subtle shading and paint job on the cockpit parts, Rick! Hope you don´t spend too much time at the pool. The bench (and your fan crowd) is waiting!

Thanks Thomas.  The pool is good, cardio fitness as well as the knee has a ways to go.  All good.

 

Having re read the thread I was wondering what type of sanding pen you used, was it an automotive one ?

 

Cheers

 

Dennis

They are used in electronic industry.  EuroTool "Scratch Brush".  I got them off Amazon.  There are 2 sizes, get both as well as refills.  They work really well.  FYI, it takes a light touch with gentle pressure to make these work.
