    Amazing work, Dale. You're just about all set for the next issue. I'm looking forward to seeing how he attacks the spring rigging.

    What sort of paint are you using?

    Powder coat is tough, but you can't fix scratches like with spray paint.

    Dale,

    I echo the expressions of admiration already added to your posts - truly beautiful work!

    Are the springs (in your last picture posting) machined from solid, or made up of individual cut strips?

    Regards Tom

    Hi Dale,

    Progress on the A3 has slowed while I collect the funds for another material purchase.

    Beautiful, Dale. When you say "covers" are you referring to the front cylinder covers, or the wrapper? A clear coat would be nice on the cylinder covers.
