David, thank you. If the prime had been closer to the Tuscan I was considering just giving it a coat of clear, but unfortunately it isn't. LiG

K, I know I'll never forget the beat of that tune.
Making the vent screens on the sides. Got plenty of brass screen but a limited amount of strips. Hobby shop doesn't carry it any more, did an on line search, only bigger stuff. Looking for brass strips .016 thick X 3/32, anyone have any ideas?? Thank You. LiG
EDIT: found sheets of correct thickness at McMaster Carr, just need to cut it to the proper widths. LiG

Nick;

Try both True Value and Ace Hardware. They will sometimes carry the smaller brass shapes. Also check out Micro Mark's site.

Good hunting, David Meashey

I've been having a devil of a time trying to source any brass strip smaller than 1/4" wide. I used to be able to get it in 3/16" and 1/8 widths, but apparently not anymore. I'm told K&S will custom cut strips for you, but I haven't looked into that.

Later,

K

K,thank you. The K&S web site I found shows mainly 'store display' kits, and not specific sizes or shapes. Hoping I can slice the piece I ordered to the widths I am looking for. I did slice a piece that was .020 and it curled, was able to get it pretty straight. Forging ahead. LiG
