Re: Modelu

Some brilliant stuff and no mistake. Just for the benefit of myself and other modellers on the west side of the big pond, what payment methods does Modelu accept? I've searched the website to no avail. Cheers, David Hi David, at present I can take cheques, bank transfers or paypal. I'll be giving t...

Re: Modelu

An update on the revised rodding - after further tests I've found that the black resin is definitely too brittle and have reverted to red. Tests this evening with 7 rollers threaded with 0.4mm MSE square section wire have been very good with no breakages. I've found the best method to thread them is...

Re: Modelu

Hi all, Many thanks for the feedback on the point rodding and figures. The stools were created from a 2D drawing and were not 3D scanned. They have been adjusted to allow for easy (ish!) threading of the 0.4mm wire - that'll be why they look overscale width wise. This feedback is just what I'm looki...
