The Unimog model is completed. It was even possible to create some kind of display case using cheap polystyrene (cost of material including tools: 10 EUR).
Processing polystyrene is easier than expected. For instance you can cut straight edges by “scoring & breaking”: Just score the material with a cutter several times. Move the plate to the edge of your desk and than simply apply some force. It will snap just at the scored line.
Afterwards I used sandpaper to chamfer/polish the edges. Ok, as you can see above I tend to round off corners.
In the end everything is assembled using polystyrene-compatible glue.
For the display case of my next scale model project “Tirpitz” I will try to plane the chamfers. This way I expect to achieve better fitting parts…
PS: If you worry about ThunderSync 1.3 not getting done I can assure you that “Tirpitz” is a typical autumn/winter project.
