Heres my best scratch building effort. built from a 76 caprice sedan. the front and rear frame sections are scratch built. all the derby related parts are also scratch built , gas tank, batterey box, toggle box rear axle and the engine armor.
My fav so far. Just great work!

I'm a little intimidated by this thread. The workmanship and creativity on display here is awe inspiring. What I have to offer isn't quite as intricate or technically demanding, but I'm pleased with it.
This is a fuel tank for a 1930 Bentley. I bought the model as a partially assembled glue bomb and the tank was a mess and the molded in details just weren't up to par.
Here's the completed tank with scratch built petcocks and guitar string fuel lines.

Some of my attempts at scratch building. The master cylinders on the fire wall are my creation

I also did the exhaust and drive shaft using ink pens, and that little red thing on the inside frame rail on the passengers side is the fuel pump

The tranny tunnel, and the recess in the fire wall
The fuel rail is made from plastic stock, and piano wire for the fuel lines

This is one of my first scratch builds this was my second visible V-8 so I had a spare intake and carb laying around, when I worked at a machine shop I would sneak in the garbage and grab hoses and wires that I would use in my builds

I have accurately determined that the next time I feel like whining because someone doesn't make a part I need, I'll just shut up.
Oh, this is oh so true....................I am right there.........................

Some stuff from my current build.
Everything but the wheels, tires, and brakes.
Again, everything but wheels and tires.
Everything but the engines, chain/sprocket, and front tire.

A Couple Of More Scratchbuilt Items:
An interior wall for my '77 Chevy Van that I scratchbuilt from Sheet Styrene. I had to do that, because otherwise the empty area on the inside of the body could be seen through windshield.
For my '71 Barracuda (Jo-Han Kit) I scratchbuilt those two Fuel Pressure Regulators on the front inner fenders. They were built from different kinds of styrene tubings.
And then door panels for my '61 Oldsmobile Wagon Custom project. They are scratchbuilt from Sheet Styrene and door handles are metal wire. Still a little Bondo work to do and window cranks are still missing, but otherwise they are done.

Here's a dune buggy I'm working on . I modified the front suspension and added working steering .
I also made an upgraded pedal assembly with twin master cylinders for the disc brakes .
And this is a master cylinder I made for another project because I couldn't find one in my parts boxes !

For another project I wanted a larger diameter tire to use on some Pegasus wheels and I also wanted the look of a bias - ply tire .
So I decided to try something new and make my own !

Here's a little something to bring this thread back down to earth. A scratch built winch.
I also scratch built the piano hinges for the hood
