    just came across those pics of a "welding unit" on my old phone. it was based on Migatronic KMX 550, painted red as i dint had any green spray. it would look a lot better with some decals on it, even those from my UH-1 Huey or ISU-152 that i never finished. it is my first ever completed scale model. you are welcome to post your models in this thread:drunk:

    That is superb. It would look great next to some more model workshop machines. Some model engineers make miniature Bridgeports and power hacksaws.

    Mine is not a model as such, more of a heavy duty toy I made for my son....

    It's the one in my avatar.
    @w124 "is that Yamaha glued together and painted by you?, it looks great, show some more photos of it."
    No it's a Minichamps model! I have a few of these, very very good models. Much better than most, cost about £55 each except the limited edition ones that can go for £200+!
    The black one below is the "2004 test bike" that can go for lots of money!

    what i dont like about such models, is the fact they still look like a toy even thought those are very detailed ones, but its all about the paintjob.
    you can buy a model to glue the parts together and paint for a lot less money, but if you cant paint it will look like crap and in this case Minichamps would be a much better option;) DUDE i havent done a picture of the construction i've been cutting, drilling and welding AFTER painting, what a disgrace that was:doh:

    but those Yamaha GO!!!!!!! decals reminds me of a great model that someone completed in the past.
    believe it or not, it was all paintbrush:scared:
