Was gonna paint the chassis orange, but seeing it in grey primer made me want it to stay that colour! So gonna grab some matt grey paint, and leave it similar to this.
Then on with the other bits and bobs that need doing such as a new window (original got cracked), black edging around the cut out fan sections, and probably gonna rebraid the case wiring again since I removed the old stuff as it wasn't as densely weaved as the MDPC stuff.thumb.gif

That scout looks nice bare naked. thumb.gif How you remove the quick released latches?

I'm still thinking of painting my case... and since you guys are the pro's, plz give me a 101 on painting cases!

To remove those latches push them slightly to the right, and put a flat screwdriver under the left side. Then when you push them back to the left, slightly push the latch away from the case and they just slide off. thumb.gif

Also I'm not painting my scout white (I already had done this previously to the internals, it's somewhere in this thread from page 2000 onwards). This time I was gonna go for orange, I even had the paint BUT I changed my mind and thought the scout looked so cool in grey primer (as in the pics) that I'm gonna paint it matt/satin grey instead. thumb.gif Keeps slightly within the military theme of colours that way even if that's more to do with the navy!

Anyway I made some nice edging trim for the fan holes I cut out, which was pretty easy to do. I used an old aerial cable, cut the ends off, sliced into the skin on one end by about 2 inches then I pulled the internals out down the wire which made a very neat tear. I then cut the black cable skin it to size, and slotted it over the metal. biggrin.gif

I also lightly wet sanded the outer sides to hopefully achieve a little better finish, but I left the internal surfaces as they were. I'm no pro painter by any means though, but really hoping this turns out good. Gonna think about braiding the case wires again soon too, to replace the old white braiding I had on there previously and that I've since removed.

No more updates for a week though since I'm working away.

What do you think of my Scout window panel modding today? Not finished with it yet. Got to put special screws & a mesh screen so my 5 y.o. can't touch the fan blades.
