Here's a Bison I've been building from the Italeri LAV-M with MLM wide LAV wheels.

Well, first I made a jig from strip. It alternates .20x.60 by .20x.40 strip.

Then I tack down some .10 rod at one end with CA. Then I take a pair of tweezers and press down on the rod where it is over the .40 strip. The .40 is the strip that sticks out. The .60 give me my uniform spacing. Got it? Don't know if I do, lol.

Nice work Gary-


That tie down jig is an awesome idea- and the results are spectacular-

I always hate using the etched tie-downs as they look too small to me. I will try these- making a jig and using them as seperate pieces for individual tie downs.

Do you have any more tricks up your sleeves?

This is good stuff-

James
