Finally finished


She took forever, but is finally finished! She's about 3 1/2 feet tall, so about 3/4 scale. I decided to clear coat her after following the threads and deciding mild steel is going to rust eventually. Hopefully she will find a home indoors and won't rust.

I knew I saw the size, that is larger than I thought, WoW Bravo!
What does it weigh, how much wire did you end up using, it amazes me sometimes.

finally finished

Hi Warren, great to hear from you. I think she is about 60 lbs. I used most of two 11 lb rolls of wire, a couple tanks of shielding gas, and more flapper disks than I want to think about. Lin
