Phew… broke out in a sweat just thinking of the effort involved… Nice job.

At least it doesn’t look like a cheap slimline... what “model” is the kit?...

Such an effort would be more worthy of a fountain Emperor (or similar top end)!

It really didn’t take long, I cut strips from scrap, Taped them together and chopped them into rectangles. Then I pinned a couple sticks in a 90° angle, Glued and pushed them into the corner. When it dried I squared it up and turned it.

When it dried I squared it up and turned it. It’s a PSI kit called the Concava, Hence the shape of the upper barrel. I think theyre 7 or 8 dollars, This was an experiment so I didn’t go for an expensive kit.
