What is the filler mix that you used with the suringe between the exhaust manifold and the turbine thrust chamber. I noticed too, that for a prefect fit a little bubble level is being used.

The locating pins that were placed in the main chamber. Is that for re-locating for disassembling and assembling when completed after painting.

Pictures of the original shows the true demensions of this engine.

Hi Gunnerjim ,,,


the filler mix is a iron hold mix .... on the chamber will be come first a copper layer and than a zilver layer ,,, the F1 engine is than most for 80 % of metal .... over the the zilver layer the will come paint details more darker kine,s .... yes and the pins are for ( re-locating) later for again new drill of holes ... because there is a new layer metal over ....  so i can find correct the holes ....

over the the treu foto,s ,there are few versions of the F1 by details and color use .... i make the early test version with more red details , this version is to see at  United States Space and Rocket Center

But the engine bell came in today and as soon as I had not expected, I could almost turn out the light in this silver bling bling ..... the man has delivered a masterpiece, all details have remained high in terms of depth and edges ....

I can part with, start taping s .....

So by the looks of it so far, you have sent the main engine chamber (or Bell) out to be chromed plated.

Your plate guy does nice work! Is this resin, plastic or a combination of both?

Well people, a little update,,, the Masking tape was received yesterday,,, and masking could start ... a lot must be masked with many small details .... only the weather would not work with the spraying of a first primer, so it is waiting ....



So Far ............

Well the first layer of primer and coatings are there ... but the rest silver something be torn.
I have used for cigarettes as a wet roll of wax rips up high speed when the first light primer layer on top, which allow to dry, and then mix the colors on it, then very quickly all parts masking peeled off, for it was dry otherwise the paint could go tear ....
I am happy with the first result, the hard silver contour edges are nicely after that and the details, so tomorrow should wash out the dark for the deeper parts and details ..... and then spray the inside ...

than the injector plate and ring sprayed and placed in the combustion chamber and placed the chamber on the engine and then placed the heat exchanger on the engine bell ....

Now the building is well,,,, head for the pipe connection is down and they fit well with details ... Then the pipes were in the queue first and then reassembled and gluing everything fit Than transitions and light filled with filler and then that was the usual dry primer paint layers.
I chose red, as he exhibited in Washington State ... with protective covers for the pipes ....

I have also been drilling the holes for the engine mounts to the F-1 to contribute to the support car ... by the book now have the pipes to be installed, but I do it later, otherwise it is difficult for any other white metal parts to place ...The lines are almost finished on the decals from .... and small details ... I\'ve temporarily fixed it after some sanding to remove some paint thickening qua ... order to fit ....
