I hope you never sneeze while fitting parts!

Beautiful, amazing work!

Thanks Mike,
but you're right, Sneezing in the presence of such tiny things is an absolute No-Go.

But even without sneezing I had similar terrible horror experiences when handling the tiny Resin-Ice Frost Ramps, which suddenly flipped out of the tweezers down on the floor (tiles), on which I crawled on all fours then, hoping to find them ...
It's a good thing that Tomas Kladiva in his Newware Kit also wisely considered some spare parts, because two of the R24 ramps were actually (initially) untraceable around my chair.
By chance I saw the next day a ramp intactly laying on the door, in about 3 meters away! From the other I found only the pitifully flat pressed residue, for which I was obviously a bit too heavy.
Also in this respect, the Newware Kit (NW 131) leaves nothing to be desired and is therefore absolutely recommendable.

Hello everybody,

from the Britmodeller Forum the question came up, if I forgot the Diagonal Cross Strut which of course is not the case. But for the sake of simplicity, I had not implemented it up to now, but I made up for it right away.





And now to the long and narrow cover on the Crossbeam, for which I first determined the dimensions from this photo of the ET-37 (STS-37).


Source: georgesrockets.com (George Gassaway)

As one can see, this is only a narrow thin strip, which increases slightly obliquely on both sides to the outside, which is not so easy to realize in the range of less than 1 mm in height.

That's why I considered to cut a 0,8 mm wide strip (above) from a thin Evergreen Sheet (0,13 mm) and then to glue it together with the two slants, made from an Evergreen Strip (0,4 mm x 0,75 mm).



Since I've used again MEK, I also had to underlay Teflon foil, so that nothing could glue on. Then I've put on the laboriously sanded slants and carefully fixed with the cutter, and then lightly brushed with MEK from both sides, which is sufficient for the gluing.



And so the cover was already as good as finished, only the transitions of the slants and at the ends, I have the strip a little bit smoothened.



Afterwards, I've glued this strip similarly with MEK onto the Crossbeam, whereby I've glued step by step from one side to the other side.





And as I think, the cover comes out pretty well and it's nothing to sneeze at.



With this now also this last detail would done.

Was just dropping by to see if any updates when I realized it had been several months. Hope all is well.

My guess is that life got in the way. The hiatus is well deserved, dont want the burnout bug to bite. Best wishes.

Manfrde has no account, because he lives in Germany and it's not possible to sign in without a VPN....
I only can be here, because I have it, and say to my browser via VPN that I live not in Germany...

Where is the problem? Why is Germany blocked to sign to this forum?
