Scott........thanks for the info:........I did not have a Mercury dash........so I had to modify a Chrysler dash........I think once it has the rest of the detail ,putty,sanded and painted........hopefully it will look close........thanks.

Hello.......thank you all very much for the kind comments........well, I`m back on progress.......I gathered a few parts from my parts box and made a few parts for the engine.......this is just a mock-up to get a feel of what I want......It`s not perfect but,close to the 1:1.........all the detail will be added later.......I will build some bumpers tomorrow.......then I need to figure out the headers.........thanks for looking.

Hi John,

I'm just sitting back in awe.. beautiful work mate. :) !

Quick question..(may have been answered before but i couldn't find it)...What are you using to hold it all together during the mockup stage?. Tape?, white glue?, contact adhesive.?

 

cheers

Ian

Hi Ian.......I use Aleene`s original tacky glue........it comes in a 5 oz bronze color tube........cost around $1.50 .......I like to use it because it holds together great and will remove very easy........I also use 3m green tape when I get lazy :) ..........thanks

Thanks Dr........I think once I get the shag attached to the trunk and headliner and trimmed/combed  down to scale it will look like the 1:1 car........thanks

John, if ANYBODY can copy this hideous thing, YOU can do it!!! NEVER liked this thing ,but I give you full Kudos for even tryin it! Even as a model I think it's UGLY, but you can make a silk purse from a sows ear, so I DO believe your model will be an EXACT copy! Please don't take this wrong, but EVERYBODY has different tastes.

George.......I hear what your saying.....I am actually not a fan of the 1:1 car as well......but,some of the creation is crazy in a good way for modelers that want to go that extra step........lately I have been trying to build off the wall projects..........and I thought this project would be a gossip getter?.........as is the real 1:1 car.........I`m sure I will get allot of opinions on this build before it is done.......especially on body,engine,color,flames,shaggy fur,etc..........the list goes on and on and on.........but,I thank you for the compliment :)

The car is sooo far 'out there' that you will never forget it.  And with modelers, the first thought is, "I bet I could I build that!"  I totally understand!

Mr Geiger- my first thought is "I wish I had those skills and experience." But it is something we will never forget. A build that is a real journey. Keep 'em coming John and congratulations on the trophies won at the Roadster Show in Pomona.
