    Refurbished from having the traditional darkening of the plasma orbitals and the almost disintegration of the gold, to a brand new piece. This baby was in horrible shape, but she has a new lease on life, new nose couplers and all.

    it's a custom blended Cerakote. Orbitals and the stems. Not just an off the shelf color. Here's a pic of the orbitals as being blended and matched

    Oil Rig 2 that was busted, now repaired. note the white crack in the frame. That was where it snapped. Drilled carefully on both sides, a metal pin was fitted and cemented in, and the frame was glued with 2 different adhesives to bond and smooth it all out. Now to refinish the whole thing..

    Did you create any kind of a jig to help the two drilled shafts of either side of the break line up to form a straight tube? When I've tried repairs like this, I've found it challenging to get the shafts to line up axially.

    nope...no jig at all. Just lots of careful marking and lots of history working with r/c hobbies, so it's common to be drilling, pinning and fixing lol. It will be finished today also. Painted her last night, now to clear coat it and cure it this am...and I think it will be a stunner
