PICS: Brooklin Diaries for Nov 22
Taken direct from the website:LDM 123. BML 29, 14 and 04. BRK 213 and 218. A week full of codes, or better: full of wonderful cars.Our list is not finished yet, this week we’re working on a special project. Which one? That’s a secret, folks!Wait and see what Brooklin Models has planned for you…Enjoy the new blog post from Brooklin Diaries and have a nice weekend!FINAL ASSEMBLY – JULIE AND ANGIE
BML14 (the red ones) and BML04 (the not red ones) are about half way through assembly.
Assembly of a batch of models can take anywhere from 4 days to a week or more, depending on the level of detail to be glued on.SUB ASSEMBLY – MARK C
More LDM123 (1935 Brough Superior 8) models are on the way. These axles are drying before the tyres can be put on.PATTERN MAKING – SARAH
With Darren and Mr P working on some more new (secret) projects, Sarah is the star of the show again. She is working on the BRK218, a 1970 Buick GS 455 Convertible. She is working on a few strengthening pieces so she is marking out the pieces on to a sheet of brass.MOULD MAKING – NEIL
It’s not very often that a photo is taken of this process. Neil is applying a fine graphite powder to one half of a mould. Without this barrier layer, the two halves of the mould would fuse together.
A fused mould results in a very expensive block of rubber with even more expensive brass masters inside.SMALL PARTS CASTING – MARK R
Do you remember these resin blocks form a week or so ago?
They make the wire brushing of this tonneau’s visible surface easier.
The pieces fits snuggly into the block meaning that Mark’s fingers don’t get scoured.BODY CASTING – ANDY B
This is the 1970 Buick GS 455, but this our hardtop version.PLATING CASTING – JIM
These are lower side strips for a new model, the BML29 – a 1942 DeSoto 4-door Sedan.
The large frame around the outside is to keep them straight when they are plated.PLATING CASTING – DAVE
Super-delicate windscreens for the Riva Aquarama. These require very careful clean-up and handling.PAINT ROOM – TIM
More clean up here too. Tim is preparing the surface of these BRK213 Corvair Greenbrier seatpans.
