I don't have a build thread yet. Okay, I'll start one. THanks guy!
Wonderful, Sadie! We'll watch you there! !!
When doing parts like this, you must thing as the guiding lines as faring the edges together. If they are off, that part will not work. Unfortunately a mistake that late in the game could mean starting a big piece over again. The best way to prevent this is to decide if you are going to cut on the line, inside the line, or outside the line. I like to cut right on the edge of the inside, as I do not like the black lines showing. This takes a steady hand and you focus must be as if you are cutting out the perfect black line, then the part will be shaped right, and they will fit. Another option is to build the model, leave the gaps, and either make a filler paste, then pain the model. To be honest, with the right pain job, you can sand and smooth every line and end up with an even more convincing model. This is not a model for the faint heartened, but it is a model you should try if it catches your eye. What skills you will learn will stay with you forever.
Great tips, Zathros! I'll be with this in my mind.
So, today I'm going to a litlle surgery in my great finger on rigth foot. I'll be in home at this night. Maybe I could work better in my model . . .
We call those "toes", "Big Toe" for your particular case, in English. Good luck with the surgery, and make sure you scrub between your toes before you go in. You'd be surprised how many people give that the once over.
Ok, Zathros, thanks. My big toe is fine now. And it was clean, yes! My wife forced me to scrub then . . .
Well, let's to work. I though very much to next steps, and I did as bellow:
I put a smal paper piece where I "loss" one leg o octopus.

Now, the result . . .
I believe that is acceptable for now . . .
Indo sequence, instaling te part 5 "A" and "B".
Now, I'm gluing the parte #5.
Some close ups . . .
Another close-ups. Now, this is the point that I'm.
When those parts are nice and dry, you can smooth those fenders by using a Ball Bearing on the inside, and gently forming the wheel to the radius, don't go too big on the bearing, a marble would probably be just about the right size. Either that's a small T.V. or you scaled this up!!?! I hope it's scaled up!
To be Brutally honest, I would have done that part over. I know it's a pain in the ass, but you would be surprised how much quicker it would go, and you could use some of the existing piece, carefully cut smaller, as an inner support. Funny thing is that's exactly the spot I had to weld one of these together as it developed a huge rust spot there. I wouldn't blame you if you left it away it was, to be honest. This is something that you could sand and fill then sand again, and paint with Spray paint. Leave it as it is. Talk (typing) is cheap!
