Thank you for the compliments about my welding-job.

I have much too often seen additional welds (while trying to pimp up a tank-modell, for example) which were much too thick/broad/strong in relation to the scale.
They were made in purpose to make the model more realistic instead of the out-of-the-box-status, but also between the protection-steel-plates of tank-turret I'd never seen welds in reality which have the size of 10 cm! ;)
So, welds between body-steel-plates in average car-making are at best 5 mm!
(Btw: Body-steel usually is spot-welded and only parts of the suspension, for example, made of thicker sheet metal, is welded by continuing welds!)
And so 5 mm, scaled down in 1:25, are only 0.2 mm!
Now, the thickness of the yarn, I'd used for the Porsche, is a compromise between realistic scale and visibility (I used 0.4 mm yarn).

The screen from a screen door is also cheap 'mesh'. I was going to use some for chain link fence, as well as deck netting for a helicopter pad on a ship.

What kind of glue are you using with the yarn? I wish I could read German.

Hi kerick!

The glue, I used, was "UHU Flinke Flasche" (UHU is Germany's well known glue) but I suppose it isn't sold in UK or elsewhere outside Germany (except Austria and Switzerland).
But it's an ordinary householdglue -a glue for universal use- which connected paper, wood, cardboard, felt, cork and so on with each other, it's viscous, clear and needs  it's time to become stiff.
Therefore: don't use waxed thread/yarn; you have to keep it fixed with your fingers for a much too long time to be convenient.

P.S.:  ;) lucky, I speak english... you see: knowing a foreign language is advantageous.
(btw: I also speak netherlands as good as german and english and a bit french, spanish and latin)

I have plenty of that type of glue at my house. I'll have to check the sewing box for unwaxed thread.
The only german I know is a few words I learned from my grandmother as a kid. Some of that was plough deutsch! In the Air Force I visited Germany. I knew enough to order beir and bratwurst.

"Bier" and "Bratwurst"... yeah! ;)


Continuing!
(I'd thought, I never can say this... LOL)

O.k., without the color I need, but yet finished: The window-shields.

First pic:

After the body has been broken, I'd added some pieces to strengthen the points, where the shields will be mounted. (and so, I strenghen the plastic-body also).
I also opend the drivers window by using my precision saw easily.

Outside of the protection:

and inner view:

Simply cutted by a manicure-scissor ot of a common colander.
The frames are from plasticsheet and the distanceholder are made of thin plasicsticks of a 1:87 (H0) house-kit.

That's all for today.

Are you going to rust the screen for the windows?

Not much rust generally at the Porsche and/or it's extensions is my intention.
'Cause the Porsche was freshly restored short before the apocalypse was breaking out it has looked in a nearly showroom condition.
So the aging of the car will be only a bit and the used-look will be made only by a certain quantity of dust, dirt and a little bit of mud (and blood).

Now some of the extensions/protections are "welded" and painted with anti-rust-primer.
Pic 1/2:

and 2/2:


...and the meshed frames of the doorwindows and rear-side widows are also "welded" at the body.

While I was busy with deassembling the Peterbilt and making the rifles, machetes and mesh-frames, I was going to a number of my neighbors and asked them and some of my other friends for some old anti-rust primer, in Germany called "Rotmennige" or "rote Mennige" (look here).
Unfortunately no one had left over some relics of that classic colour.
So I was forced to mix the shade by myself and I think, I succeed.
(Btw: it's the colour the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, CA, USA was originally protected with against rust.)

The reason was: The Porsche's owner uses the old primer because he didn't like to do a suicidal trip to the next do-it-yourself-supermarket through a world of zombies only to look for modern primer.

And the meshes of the window's protections will stay shining the way they are, because it is made by rust-free steel meshes.

See you,

Norbert

Looks great! Will the Porsche paint match the truck?

Looking good ! I like the look of the mesh....I was thinking the same thing for my pick-up ( if I ever get to it  :thumbsup: ) Here in North America we call it 'chain link' fencing, and I was going to use pieces of mesh window screen to replicate it. It may be a bit off-scale, but will give the appearance of thinner gauge wire. As for the rust-free part, we call that 'stainless steel', if you're using the expensive stuff, or 'galvanized' as in 'galvanized chain link fence'

Keep up the great work !

Thx for the kind replies; I'll do my best not to disappoint you!

Many thx, Capt. Canada, for your english-lesson...
I beg all of you to correct me, 'cause I like to know and to learn more - esp. the correct phrases.

Yes, "stainlees"... how stupid I am!
I remember "stainless" as imprints at forks and knives and the backs of watches and so on.
Sometimes I don't have the words, so I use some similar phrases. Nice, you discover my intention! ;)

We knew what you were saying even if you didn't have the words just right. Sometimes it's harder to understand fellow Americans!  :blink:

There is three kinds of English; British, American and Australian. And this does not include different dialects!
