It's finished, I'm just not terribly proud of it. Since I built my last one 36 years ago this old body has lost something.

I can't trace a line anymore, or hold two drying parts together, or hit a screw head with a screwdriver. Wish I could blame it on alcohol but I don't drink. My mothers hands shook too from about 80 to when she passed at 104, she passed it down to me. Otherwise I'm fine.

I still could paint the cowl and string the guy wires, but she's flyable as is. But that's another story. Smile

Let's hope she passed down the longevity gene as well...

I think it looks just fine,

That's the same cheapie cabinet I and my friend have ($AU150.00 in Oz, so about the same price). It needs a minor mod to fit a sucuum cleaner onto it to extract the dust, but apart from that works a-treat for the small stuff I/we play with. I agree with the advice to use a "quite" to "very" fine glass bead for this fine work. As stated previously, it leaves a very fine, almost pearlescent lustre finish. Don't forget to give it a light spray with ArmorAll when you finish, before you get fingerprints on it.

Chellie's engines are so nicely done.

I have one of the larger cabinets, holds 80 lbs of grit I think.  Bought it from Harbor Freight and had it shipped.  Lot's of MG parts have gone through it.

I wouldn't dump the aluminum oxide just to blast a few model engines but buying one of those smaller cabinets could be an option.  A new HF just opened here, guess I will have to pay them a visit.
