Ian - thanks
Jim - it is very small
Steve - tools will be made. I did make a set of Tiger tools a few years back, including a detailed jack, and a mould but have misplaced them. If I can't find them I will be at it again
Graeme - thanks
Scottie - thanks

made a start on some zimmerit - looks a bit rough blown up so big but once it has been sanded and with a few layers of paint over the top it usually looks ok so fingers crossed

Simon, did you use a pyrograver for the zimmerit or some other small scale technique that I am unaware of?:thumb2:
Cheers, Rick H.

Simon,
The zimmerit will be fine once you've sanded and painted it.
BTW your fingers need a bit of TLC too! My wife is a dermatology nurse so makes sure mine don't get dry. Put some hand cream on before you go to bed. That way the model won't get greasy!
Take care! Andy
