Doesn't mean I can't put a confederate flag, or at least a union jack on it...

 

 

I made some intake horns with mounting flanges so I could mock up/measure the spacing and location of them and the carbs in relation to the hood and determine where to cut the hole in the side of the hood.  The intake manifold and carbs are measurements I have, plus I have a few finished Sevens I can measure from too.

Simply AMAZING, Mark!  You truly are the "ScaleMaster" and an inspiration to so many!  It is always a treat to watch your WIP.

Thanks guys, I really appreciate the compliments, especially from some of you guys that also impress me with your skills and workmanship.

 

Before I cut the hole, I made ribs to add some rigidity to the hood and soldered them in.  I also did a little more work to true up the fit to the cowl.

Then I cut the hole.  Still need to do some surface work, but it is stable now.

Or at the very least paint it orange. I don't think I've ever seen one of these (1:1 or model) painted orange, though there might be a compelling reason or two for that...

Already did an orange one about six years ago:

I think he's referring to the Phillips head screws in the engine area..at first glance they do appear to be torx head.

Since I still had the measurements for the wheel handy, I decided to make the rotors and hubs.  These are made to fit on the front, they’re directional too…  Yes, the holes in the hubs are threaded to accept studs/bolts.

These are the rear brake rotors and hubs…  Same basic process as the fronts, but not the same hub proportions.
