    Default Gpf2 build thread

    Just finished the General purpose factory 2 build. It was an easy build and simply followed my directions.

    First was printing templates, cutting them out, and using rubber cement, glued to the styrene.




    cutting window openings with a corner punch


    prepared windows and door frames for painting (used double sided tape)


    windows and frames painted (3 light coats)


    making overhead door trim from .020 x .060 strips (different from sketch set, but it was what I had on hand)


    cutting window glazing pieces


    installing window glazing using "Testors clear parts cement and window maker"


    all walls ready for gluing to base
