Scratch Rod
Posted by PatW on Monday, July 15, 2019 8:48 AM

After a holiday away, coming home and hearing mother-in-law (just 94) in hospital after a fall and diagnosing a bleed on the brain, in a coma, dying three days after we return, help sorting the funeral. I just saw a picture of a rusty van, I went into my cabin and using scrap plastic-card and a few other bits built this in a daze really. I think it would be 1/32nd but that's not important at present.

Inspiration........

 

My try, sorry if it looks a bit rough..................

Sorry for your loss.  Modeling is a great distraction.  Scratch built!  Pretty cool Pat.

Thanks,

John
