Detail and prime

Just a few little details to add now, mainly door hinges made from lengths of micro-rod fitted with superglue. The gap-filling properties of this bed them into the body to remove the "just stuck on" look.

After this, the motor, wheel and rods are masked with a mix of tape and kitchen foil. The latter is easy to poke around the lump inside the model. I'm not sure it matters if the PCB gets painty but I certainly want to keep it off the moving parts including the motor and I can't take the model to bits anymore.

Primer is Halford U-Pol etching. Readily available and cheap enough if you don't need gallons of the stuff. My can has done well over 20 models and there's still plenty left.
