Scratchbuilding wind screen seal


Recommended Posts

I am scratch building a truck and I was wondering if there is a way of  making the  seal around the windshield and other windows.  This will be 1/25 scale.   Thanks for any guidance!

Joe, the only thing I can suggest is get a small engineers spring tensioned pair of dividers. Set the very small gap between the two points you want using the adjusting screw. With this tool you should be able to scribe a line around various apertures. One point will be scribing and the other guiding along the aperture edge.  It will take a bit of practice to get a feel for what you are doing and keep the scribed line a constant distance to the edge, so I would suggest that you practice on some scrap plastic.

You could use a small spring bow compass instead by substituting the drawing lead for a pointed metal piece. Same principle as using the dividers HTH.

Once the scribing is done there will be a line to paint to.
