Thanks Corey! Once you get the Funny Car build started, keep us posted ;)  .

 

I got the Chi Town Hustler of four wheels. Rear axle fit very very nicely to the chassis, but I had some problems with the front axle. Anyway I got it assembled somehow. Actually those rear tires are just mocked up, the brakes are still missing but I had to test how it looks on four wheels.

Nice build Niko. Since I wrapped up the Cannonball I've been working on the same kit. The Revell kit is based on the restored Chi Town Hustler which does use an alluminum KB Hemi, the original CTH used an iron block Hemi since the KB engines weren't introduced until the early 70's. I think the original car did have the iron block painted orange.

Thanks John and Ron!

 

Interesting information too, thanks for that too. :D

 

Today I was working with the fuel lines for this thing. There's a lot of work to do before they're complete so I don't have a picture yet. Hope to have more done tomorrow and some pictures for you too.

Thanks Dave :) !


 

Update for the Hustler. I managed to get some more Fuel Lines done. Not the funniest thing in Model Building I guess, there's a lot of little parts on those fuel lines, and more to come. :D  I should have another update soon.

Thanks Tyrone and Darryl, the comments are really appreciated. :D

 

The fuel lines are finally done. Huh, that was quite a job to do and I'm not sure if the end result is as good as it could be. I think the Detail Master braided line is not the best for this job, I had Pro Tech before and it was better, but couldn't find it last time so I bought this. Well anyway, now I can move on to the cooling system with its Braided lines.

I also planned my next project which will start once this is completed in some point of 2013, '64 Dodge 330 Funny Car.

Heh, Thanks Charlie!

 

I hope Teppo Saari has those Pro Tech Braided Lines in stock, I have to put an order in soon. The problem with that Scale Dreams' line is that it can be pushed flat too easily, so it's not round anymore and those lines are much harder to keep in one piece than Pro Tech lines.

 

Those are not bad, though, not just for me.

I once pushed some wire into the Detail Master braided line to keep it from going flat, but the Pro Tech is a lot better. Keep up the good work Niko. Have a great Christmas.

Thanx Dave! Well that would be a good idea to try if I can't find ProTech Braided Line. Looks like he has it in Stock now, when looking at the web-page. Maybe needs to put order in.

 

Merry Christmas and fast Elapsed Times on the New Year. B)
