      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.

    Ah! The wiper motor...It's a long time ago! It's not in this forum but, when the model is completed, I will publish here what I did till my first post here; there are about 2 years of work missing here. Unfortunately, I cannot add those posts in chronological order; they will follow the last post with the pictures from the finished model.
    Indeed, I glued the Avanti inside mirror to the windshield with cyanoacrylate Continental Mark II but it was before the windshield went on the car.
    Good to know what for side effects these products may have!

    And now? No more updates? Indeed, I did almost nothing recently, slow enough to finish next year and not in 2018!
    I want to do a nameplate instead of a license plate, of course with the script “MARK II”. I had the stupid idea to choose a script art with “feet” which is making each letter very difficult. Indeed, I cannot do them in one piece (except both I I) but in 2 or 3. The letters M and A are requiring 3 parts silver soldered together; probably I can do the R and K in 2 pieces. We’ll see.
    As you can see, the “A” is still missing an element: I had to fix the /\ at the top to be able to adjust the missing element.
    My letters are maybe too fat; it’s hard to see the results before something is done.

    Very nice work so far Roger , congratulations


    Because of Your letter - problem ....

    Why do You do it not by milling with a ALU or brass block ( in dimensions of wanted plate ) like a name plate at doorbell ?
    In this case milling of positive letters instead of negative ones

    After milling You just color the whole block and polish only the top surface
    Perhaps markus 68 can do this for You because he owns a CNC milling machine as I know .......

    Hello Roger!

    Filing clean sharp, and balanced letters is not as easy as some might think! Is it?
    Are you using clipped art work as a guide? or dry transfers?

    -Don

    PS- Are you making a manufacturor's plate or a personalized plate? -If personal, and "American" you might check around, each state has it's own unique artwork, decals are available for most, and in 1/12th scale.

    Or? a Swiss plate?

    To Freddy: if I'm farming out brass work, it would mean I'm loosing the war! Indeed, I could have choose simpler letters, but sometimes a little complexity is good to see if one still can manage it. The horizontal bar of the A is 1.5mm in length, 0.4mm high and was silver soldered successfully!

    To Don: indeed, the "correct" font is not easy. I choose from the computer "times new roman" and "biondi", print a page and mixed both fonts together.
    This will be a neutral plate, maybe with a black or dark blue ground and the letters MARK II soft soldered or glued on it, like I did for the Avanti (have a look at my avatar).

    The script is slowly going forwards; the letter “K” is not yet done. All is done with a file; therefore some details are not 100% identical from one vertical element to the other. Hardly to be seen in reality, obvious when enlarged on the screen.
