I certainly did not expect how difficult it was to fabricate the sink out of a flat piece of aluminum.Still somewhat crude but I will take steps to improve the framework of the sink. sheesh!never made a scale sink before but wow!/crazy!  

Would it possibly be easier to make a sink out of Milliput or something like that and paint it aluminum? Those compound curves in the corners would be fun to form in real aluminum.

I cut a plastic surround on the sink so I think I could make it Work!

Oh I know the feeling. I just finished making an 8-track player with built in five band equalizer.

I used a tooth pick to apply a dot if clear blue and clear red to denote hot and cold water.

I decided to make a mini fridge for this application out of sheet Styrene and chrome sprue fir the handles (which will be removed when I primer and paint it.).

Rather late to the party, but I'll pass this along.

On a similar project, I kept my eye out for clear blister packages and inserts of the sort used for ear buds, small hardware packs and similar geegaws. Took a while of looking...but I eventually found one the perfect shape, size and depth for the sink I needed.

Following from that...you could also fairly easy 'squash form' it from a carved balsa or scrap wood form.

Great work, Gene! Love your inventiveness. Your interior is coming along beautifully! YesBeerYes
