Are those shock absorbers made out of plastic or metal profile?

Patrick Sedney
they are made out of 2mm aluminum tubing, 0.8mm galvanized steel wire, PS and brass sheet. Oh and small pieces of heat shrink tube

Really cool! Looks so much better then the kit parts.
I am using Plastic rods and Bras wire for that purpose but i really want to try to build some from Metal...

I find aluminum easier to work for this purpose. You can squeeze it, file it or bend it should you wish and it will keep its shape. Plastic rod needs to be heated and a little heat can be too much for it.

Yes I ran into this problems when building rollcages out of plastic rod….

Oh, by the way, springs are real. I bought some 10mm long and 4mm diameter from Aliexpress. Time ago I tried making them with copper wire, but it's not the same

@Dennis, for rollcages maybe you could use brass tubing and solder them with a soldering iron and some solder.
Solder wouldn't stick to Aluminum or steel but will make a perfect bond with brass or copper

Thanks for the tip 👍

I was just checking some shops for materials, a proper soldering station and a miter-box 😉

Some brass and aluminum could be the right materials for one of my next projects… 😉

Fantastic work on these details and beautiful overall final effect, Patrick. May I ask how did you achieve the ceramic effect on brake discs?
26 November 2021, 06:02
Patrick Sedney
Thank you!
Robert, the ceramic effect is made exclusively with Vallejo primer (probably ump or stynylrez will work too).
Bottom layer is a mix of Black and white primer. After that, white primer, low pressure and some distance to make bigger drops and scatter them as much as possible.
And, of course, trial and error 😅

Thanks for explanations, Patrick. Looks absolutely realistic.
