Ira, I don't know how I missed this latest excursion into styrene insanity! Your imagination is seemingly limitless, I'm grabbing my popcorn and waiting for the next update!

NEED MORE INTAKE!!!

 

I decided to extend the Intakes so that the front 1/2 inch of the Engines fits inside the Intakes. So I cut some more of the Intakes off the old Jet Model.

Next I cut the New Intakes down to fit the Pegasus.

Here it is glued in place.

I glued a piece of sheet plastic to the underside of the Intake to finish it off!

SHAPING THE INTAKES!!!

 

I have marked the bottoms of the Intakes for Cutting. I will cut along these lines with a razor saw.

After cutting I glued these two pieces of plastic over the cut areas.

Then I carved the plastic down to the shape of the Intake using a Dremel Tool and sanded it smooth  & even with a Fileboard.

Next I cut the bottom of the Intakes and did the same thing to the bottoms. Then I did the same thing again to the sides...

Here are the Intakes with all four sides done!

BARS UP FRONT!!!

 

I found this part in the parts box. I think it is part of a tail light assembly...

I cut the two ends off and glued them in place as shown!
