      As stated in my presentation, I'm doing since 2 years a Continental Mark II, scale 1:12. Presently, I'm doing the floor; the trunk floor is ready. The next step is going towards the front by doing the floor under the rear seat. To spare metal and unnecessary reworks, I did first a model with cardboard. Now, it will be easier to cut the brass at the proper place.

    Hello Roger! Don again!

    I've had all day at work to think about your work, and I've showed your postings to a few co-workers, and you now have a few more fans.
    (these new ones are in Irvine, California)

    So! To recount, there are the 40 fins per hub-cap, the "Bread Slice" valve cover, your crazy way to create tread on a giant heat sink tire pattern,
    your superb box-frame chassis, the domed and optically correct headlamp lenses, your "Ball and Cap" A-frames, that wonderful radiator! your trick with the silver paint and acetate strips, front grills!, CONTINENTAL letters!!, working door windows, wing windows with a CLUTCH!!! the little knights head on the rear badge/trunk lock!!!, working door latches!!!! -this is all from memory, I may have left out other features that other modelers are blown away by . . .
    -they can jump in any time!

    -No doubt about it! You are a Master Modeler!

    Great work, look forward to the chrome being added.
    Could you explain this tin solution please? Is everything coated prior to painting or just the parts that are silver color?

    Am desperate, Roger, when I look you stunning work, because I think that never I'll reach such a level of craftsmanship, even training 24/24 and 7/7...
    And I'm so happy to see what it is possible to create with a brain and two hands...it's extremely stimulating

    Thank you very much for sharing with us this piece of art :)

    Thank you so much for the positive comments; I'm glad you like the way the engine is looking. Well, 100 pages is surely a lot; I'm glad people did not get bored and left the ship.
    Don, it seems that you really looked how the parts are done; somebody looking just at the pictures could not pick so many details. I did them to show what it's possible with a modest equipment to encourage other to do the same or better.

    To Paul: I bought that product in France when I was there; the acid involved are in French; I don't know if such names would make a sense. Who knows, maybe Google could translate them...Only the parts which are usually zinc plated Continental Mark II have been treated with that product; the end result is a thin coat of tin.

    To Thierry: Don't be desperate; like everybody, I had to learn too. My first models were not very nice; crude would be the correct description. Don't forget also that I'm taking time: usually, most people want to have the task ended before they begin with; When I began this mad thing, I planed to do it in a period of 10 years. It will be most probably 11...Dont forget also that I'm getting mad when I see models from Gerald Wingrove!

    It’s time to do another report…As the weather was fine locally; I decided to begin the seats, made with wood, working outside. Why? working with wood is creating a lot of dust, doing that outside is a method to spare a lot of cleaning!
    As I’m not well equipped for woodwork, to get where I’m today took a lot of time. Plus, there was some remodeling in the flat: I had to take out the office/workshop all which was stored: tools, plastic scale models of cars and planes, clothing and so on. It’s incredible what I could store in such a small room! Once the floor was ready, almost everything came back again, usually cleaned. I’m glad it’s behind me!
    Back to the seats: the inserts are not yet prepared; I will have also to install the motors for the windows and front seat with the hope that the motors will have the necessary room.

    Happy birthday, Roger. Seats are looking good. Which kind of wood did you use? Markus

    Thanks Markus!
    About the wood: I don't know exactly what it is because I used the wood from a wine case...It could be fir (Tannen) oder pine as I don't know what wine producers are using; certainly a cheap wood!
