Hey folks, I've been thinking about starting this topic for a while. Seeing some more of you guys' incredible work lately has spurred me on to actually do it. I've searched around, and so far I haven't found an existing thread, but if there is one already I apologize.

So rules are:
1. Post images of parts you've scratch built, be it an oil filter or an entire car. A short description of each part would also be helpful
2. Have fun
3. Please refrain from debating about the scratch built/kit bashed thing here
4. Have more fun
5. If you believe your part to be scratch built, then please post it
6. Have even more fun
7. If you believe a particular part to not be scratch built, then please smile, scroll on, and enjoy your day
8. You're not going to believe it, but you need to have more fun

Sorry about the lengthy list of rules, but it really is important to have fun :D Enjoy the eye candy people :D

Can't wait to see all the amazing things you guys have made :)

Good to see pics again of the scratch built components for the 80 Camaro.
Very impressive scratch building skills you have for sure.
You really need to get back to that build and finish it up mate.

Here is some Halibrands I made last week they are 1/25 scale. The tires are NOT scratch built just the wheels. ( I did not want to get yelled at )

This is the engine I built for a replica of The Ramcharger's High & Mighty. The intake and the exhaust are both scratchbuilt.

Posted Image

Here is the interior that I built for the High & Mighty, all scratchbuilt except for the pedals, shifter and belt buckles.

Okay, I'll play. We should see some cool stuff in this thread.

SM465 and NP205, all scratch'd with the exception of 2 small considerably modified bits of kit parts on the transfer case (you can see the leftover chromey bits on them). Just to be clear, it's the stuff behind the bellhousing.

Posted Image

Posted Image

GM Heavy Duty steering knuckle and axle housing (3rd member is a kit part).

Posted Image

Everything out to the backing plate is scratched on this one...axle, spindle, steering arm, rod ends, etc.

Posted Image

Everything on (and including) this frame, except for the 3rd member. But you can barely see that sticking out in front of the housing, so we'll just say the whole thing. :D

Posted Image

How 'bout a scratch'd pickup box for a 1/8 '32?

Posted Image

Or an interior for the same?

Posted Image

Or some injection for a 409. Technically this isn't entirely scratch'd...it has 3 PE pieces. :P

The center cross member was all scratch built with the exhaust also being done. Each of the exhaust clamps was also scratch built and bolted in place. Posted Image

The spline rear swaybar and rearend is all scratch built, The center pig was put into resin so it could be a better working part with the brass and plastic to emboss the work. The only thing on this model so far that is a (Kit) part was a frame, Windows and interior tub. Every thing els is being scratch built or put into resin so it can be changed and then made to what is needed on the car.

You can go over and see it being done under "Runt"

The Intake Manifold and Throttle Body for my '66 Mustang Pro Mod project. Built from Styrene tubing and sheet styrene.
Posted Image

The Scoop for my '59 Simca Gasser, scratchbuilt from sheet styrene. Otherwise the engine is NOT scratchbuilt. ;)
Posted Image

The Pro Charger and its pipings are scratchbuilt from Solder and plastic (Plastic is used for those welding-seams). Also the headers are scratchbuilt from solder. That engine will be in Fox Mustang.
Posted Image
Posted Image

And the Hood for this Junkyard Mustang is scratchbuilt from Aluminium and crashed. :lol:

I'll add to the mix.

This chassis is scratchbuilt from styrene tubing with a few small aluminum pieces thrown in for good measure.

Posted Image

Same build has a scratchbuilt wheelie bar assembly, made from styrene and aluminum tubing and four link rods and front brackets. The remainder of the rear suspension is resin cast, kitbashed parts and ballpoint pen springs.

Posted Image

Another scratchbuilt chassis for a second build. This one also has some added photo-etch pieces attached.

Posted Image

Same build also has a scratchbuilt wheelie bar setup made from styrene tubing and small sheet pieces. The rear end itself is more resin.

Posted Image

This chassis is scratchbuilt for a wheelstander project.

Posted Image

The wheelie bar assembly is also scratched minus the kitbashed crossmember piece.

Here are some smaller items.

The front bumper is made from styrene sheet.

And from blocks of Renshape, I am able to carve out items like different styled hood scoops.
