Here are pics. of three new blower hats just completed. The first is a two-port "shotgun" style blower hat followed by two four port, square blower hats. One large and one small. All three of these are done as two pieces. The front face of each blower is separate to enable me to cast them easier and with minimal casting issues/defects. These are all 1/25th scale.

Wayne the scoops look awsome.    I can't see the shape that you started with.  What tools are you using to shape the scoops.  I think I see some minor file marks.

I still have a few small tweaks to make on this one but that is pretty much the size of the scoop. It is actually perfect for what it represents but remember one thing. The picture I've shown has the scoop sitting on the hood of a body that has not had an area cut out for the scoop to set down inside so when it is used on a project it will sit just a bit lower in the body and should present a better look.


Now, here is another one that I started working on today, and this is how far I've gotten so far. This scoop is more for the sportsman ranks, primarily rear engine super comp. dragsters or altereds. It is also a look from back in the 70's, 80's era that was used on quite a few cars. I still have more work to do to this one to get that "just right" look.

Maybe this will help with sales when done

You are seeing high res. pics. using my smart phone as well as early masters shots. All final cast pieces are nice and smooth.

O.K., so here is my progress on the latest part that I am working on. It is a wild three port blower hat that was designed and run by Mike Janis in the Pro Mod ranks. This thing just screams awesome.

I am currently working on a website. In the meantime, any of my items for sale can be found on Ebay, under username Modelfest. The blower hats, shown above, are currently active auctions. The hood scoops are in the casting process and should be available within the next week. The Janis blower hat will be a bit longer before it's ready.

 

I also have everything separated into classifications on my Fotki site for viewing at the link listed below. If there is anything that you might be looking for and don't like to deal with Ebay then look there and send me a pm here and we can discuss further. Thanks.
