O Exhaust Pipes

The exhaust pipes (parts A 7 to A8), are moulded in two halves longitudinally, and are very disappointing. In fact, the joint generated by this process leads to a difficult filling exercise, so. I decided to remove each pipe from its support and rebuild it with plastic card. Each pipe was then detailed with a segment of fine stretched sprue to simulate the welding seam. The opening was filed to a thin edge and the whole part coated with Mr Surfacer to homogenise the materials. Finally the exhausts were painted brown and weathered with artist oils to reproduce the look of burnt metal. They were then placed to one side ready for final building.
