Re: Look what the mailman brought today ! 7 years 11 months ago #11683

Got a pink Bush Devil rear wheel from tamiya nut - thanks Chris :y: - and my TA01 motor mount in the post this morning ... unfortunately I cocked up on the colour: I was conviced I'd ordered a silber one, but it's definitely blau ... I went back & checked the order confirmation - they'd got it right, I'd got it wrong :whistle:

My Olympus camera gave up after only two years. :(
Looks like it has an old stock Sony CCD that is known to go faulty. :angry:
No service from the store where I bought it or Olympus Netherlands... :n:

But one of the mods on the Dutch forum sent me this Canon - for free! :cheer:

Another score

Got some more torque for my Willy, black dampers for the TF and a gun.



Think the most expensive part on the new silvercan is the sticker and the box :huh: :) :cheer: :laugh:

A dream come through :laugh: finally i got myself an original 58072 Avante!!! :woohoo:

The aluminium parts are a bit crooked/weathered, anybody knows how to clean the parts up??


And wing is broken.


But overall very happy with it, and ofc as usual no motor.... :whistle: sigh

One of the greatest vintage scores you could possibly make... B)

You can have a go at polishing the aluminium parts with a Dremel.
If that doesn't smooth it out, a dip in sodium hydroxide will clear it up.
But you'll most likely have to polish also to get the shine back.

Edit - caustic soda grains work best. Trekpleister has a bottle for about 2 bucks. :y:

Tnx for tips, Edo! I will get me a bottle tomorrow. My dad came round this afternoon and gave me a bottle of Belgom Alu polish, which he says with some hand work will give the best result :)

I'm sure you know to wear gloves, add grains to water (not the other way around) and not breathe the gasses...

Edit - and keep nosy pets away. ;)
