My friend Jan is making me aluminum backplates for my LA 15s. He brought one by he had finished and a couple he has underway.
Jan has made some really nice machined parts for me and some of the other modelers. He's made spinners (1") tongue mufflers, spray bars and venturis to name a few.
Here is a picture of his latest work. It's a better fit than the stock backplate.

Frank,
That is really a nice piece of work. That you have someone that will actually make them for you is extrordinary. Hope your at least going to buy him a beer or something. They look a little more robust then the OS parts and will certainly be ab improvement over the plastic backp[lates.
Your a lucky man.
Dennis

Oh, and Frank, You do realize that with the events of this week we have both reached the peak of our modelling career. There are no more mountains to climb.We have reached the summit.

Dennis--I'm very lucky indeed. Jan is a top notch machinist and I'm really happy with the things he makes.

Now that we are an official Junkyard Wars Team and in cahoots with Clancy we are definitely at the pinnacle of success in modeling.
