The 1791 Thinkshop and 87 Ideas Workshop

Front door for the secondhalf of my life using my time while disabled to become a book reviewer, editor, and blogger……. Advocating for Liberty and Veterans who suffer with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Severe Memory Impairment, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumas, and those with Crohn's Disease and Seizure Disorder. Of course too I may muster the courage to begin my Scale Models again but fight tremor so bad that it maybe something best to just hang up and sell off. I've lost nearly every enjoyable skill and struggle with the idea of "doing it at all if I can't do so to the ability I once had". I'm most busy with doctors appointments and maintaining my 118 Year Old House, My Shop, Ranting, Retirement, and More… This blog was begun right before my health, career, and entire life's direction was wildly changed, so though the page is 3+ years old, it is bare boned.

MCM Blog Post: Heat-shield Scratch-building, Tamiya Enzo Firewall

Blog Post I have over on MCM:

So I have tried using Aluminum Duct tape to cover the firewall on the Enzo….. Looked like trash because it has no texture. Have thought about about using cigarette foil paper like others have, but don’t smoke. My current plan is as follows. I have saved the foil top from a large tub of yogurt which has a small texture to it. I have masked off the firewall piece as best I can and then using a scalpel blade #11 trimmed the excess off to make a template. Then carefully peeled the template off thee piece, placed upon thee foil and again using the scalpel blade; cut out what should now be able to be attached a heat shield. Trying to figure out now what to attach with, but planning to use reposition-able brush on rubber cement. Will post pics of how it worked in my next update.

Kind of the idea I’ve got going for the top end of this Lambo’s engine. It’s a Bburago Diecast I’m detailing for my good friend

Has been in the Purple Pond for two weeks and still has a long way to go!
