    Looks like you finally getting started <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">.<br>Sure, compared to your other( big) baby, the Fang is a hobbit. Hope you will be able to use your rods with that one too, i think it will not be a problem.<br>I still have to build myself a new one because my bro was here on saturday and he is gone with my last one. I even did' t have the time to post it, he took it away <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cry.gif" alt="Crying or Very sad" longdesc="11"> . It was the third one i made and i have none, can you believe that?!<br>Well hope to see yours finished soon my friend.
     
  5. Looks awesome so far, can't wait to see it finished!

    That' s not so sad, Mike. Everytime i make a new one it is a better one. Next will be a TTF <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"> . Never tryed that style of shooting and when i see Arturo shooting it looks better than OTT to me.

    <span class="postbody"><br>That would be a great idea Zwillie ... I need a lot of motivation ... indeed would be fantastic to coordinate the same project among several ss fellows ... a "monster" thread <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6"> many showing advances and discussing the details and workarounds, I propose you to be the "coordinator" ... btw 8000km are more like 12000km <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"> ...</span>

    update ... first sanding of contours ... now I am going to round the contour bevel, I hope finishing the wood work tomorrow ...<br> [​IMG]<br>I have a BIG question for the professionals,<br>I said that I wanted to paint it, so what's better to do before:<br>A) apply a Polyurethane paint direct <br>B) give a linseed bath before A)<br>C) any other method I don't know, please explain ...<br>thanks in advance ... btw I can't take off this charm from my hands ... it feels so good <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6">
     
  18. Looking darn good so far! I'm not a professional but I would say use wood stain rather than paint. You can get it in a number of shades/tones and it won't chip and peel like paint will.

    Hello Arturo,<br>I just see Zwillie' s post and i think it is a nice idea.<br>I told you yesterday i will try it in TTF and i had some time today to start it. It is made from 18 mm multiplex but it is only a test, i don' t want to work too much on it until i try the TTF shooting. You and tdamiano( on my forum) convinced me to try it and i will for sure. From what tdamiano told me, i will probably like it and, maybe, never come back to OTT... Time will tell... Here is a pic.<br><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-fMKBqozdV40/UNDPCNY6eRI/AAAAAAAAArs/PHZo5ChUFJk/s800/lance%2520pierre%2520ttfang1.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>I had to remove the brown layer of it( 2 sides) and that part of the work really pissed me off for today <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_mad.gif" alt="Mad" longdesc="8"> .<br>Anyway, your Fang looks really nice so far. If you do the same finish as Joerg do, it will be more than enough IMO. Looking forward to see it finished( and you shooting with it 'caus i know you like making vidzzz <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"> ).
