      Hy boys..............just for the fun of it, and to take a rest of my motorcycle building for my client, I decided to scratchbuild a 1/12 scale lathe, based loosely on a vintage American lathe from 1890....I just love machines, and the older the better!

      I thought to begin that, if I could succesfully make a scale faceplate for the lathe, with "T slots" and everything, I would be on my way.....

      Take a look....

      My hand gives the scale of it....

      Most of the model will be done in acrilic plate and styrene Mini-micro lathe , using many bevels and putty Mini-micro lathe fillets to give the impression (Once painted) of cast parts....

      By the way, this little beast will be a fully working model....


      To be continued.....

      Mario

    Mario, you always build the coolest models. You have definitely gone outside the box. There's nothing so beautiful as well turned and polished parts. I'm totally in awe here.

    I'm taken back by what you have created. Masterful does not do justice to what you do.
