На този етап... Excuse me. At that point my confidence said „poof” and dissapeared. It's not happening to me for the first time, so i'm used to it. Therefore i began metodical and emotionless implementing of the previously marked goals.
Quick visit to the nice people with the CO welder for adding few small ellements and the tail of the scanner was all that i needed to finish the frame.
After which again i smoothed out the welds and sharpened the tail.
The „antenae“ will be mounted over the new elements. I chose to call them „antenae“. What is their real purrpose i do not know. They should not look like they do if i was making a 1:1 copy. But i'm not.
The aluminum shaft donated two more pieces to the scanner.
For the „antenae“ i used rods from the umbrella. 3х same angle, on shape were cut with the dremmel.
Mounted them with the aid of magic glue, some openings, insulating foam and something that definetly stiks but i can't quite give a name to.
Although as you already know i want the whole thing to be rough i decided to oxidize the frame of the scanner with this****.
Useful thing, it easily restores damaged cover on barrels, sights, blocks etc. It's found easily in any gun/hunting shop. It didn't made smooth black film like it would on a gun, but then again it's a different material.
****Alas, unless you live in Bulgaria i doubt you will get your hands on one. But then again i know there are plenty of simmilar products around the world.
