Just a small update,

I just finished the clutch bellhousing. I used one from a Revell topfuel engine, but it needed some modifications.

I painted it first with a coat stainless seel (Model Master Metalizer) ...then I buffed the suface.

Then I layed a very thinn coat of Gun metal.

If the rest of this build come out anything like the body, chassis and tranny, this one will be a winner. Its outta da park!! Like the others have said, I'll be following this one closely.

Your Chevy II P/M was a fantastic project and this Vette is following in it's footsteps. The thing is, this is even cooler because of your custom body master. It looks out of this world so far, Rickard!

Rickard,
I've got a couple questions for you regarding your mold and resin. It looks like you've got a single injection point in the center of the roof, with vents at each end. Assuming I'm correct in that observation, do you have any particular trouble with trapping air anywhere? My second question: what brand of resin did you use to cast your bodies and what kind of cure time is it? Thanks... Scott
