Coming along great Spud.

Would you recommend soldering over the ca? I admire your perseverance with all that etch [smilie=wall.gif]

nice try on the Soldering, Way too much solder used though Spud, Get some solder paste for flux to help the flow, Maybe try some low carrs low melt solder as well so you don't get 10 degree burns.
Cheers

yea its all a learning process G i did use some Flux but i think the bit i have on the solder just makes it harder to get it where i wanted it. but practice makes perfect.

Lego CA is prolly best for smaller bit but Soldering is defo best for larger bits

Those PE ammo bins were well worth the trouble they really look the part compared to the kit parts
