Where are you getting the line drawings for these cars? There are a few 1:1 cars that I need some for to lay out graphics and paint schemes on and I can't find any.

I spend a lot of time searching out drawings. I use the search engines and use the car name and drawings,,(i usually use the images option),,,it gets some information,,,,,

also use blueprints.com as a starting place. They are heavy on the exotics and rarities and newer cars. Color schemes are harder but if you type in the car name and use the images option you can glean some information there.

 

Older cars that are popular have more information posted than obscure cars......I will search for hours sometimes and get very littlee but each piece is saved and then assembled. The K3 has so much information on line that it was an easy one,,,I also have a lot of drawings for the K3 in my own collection of books and prints, so it was a no brainer....If you check out my current  Scrathing the Surface build thread I go throw creating plans when I cant find any......that is in the model cars section, currently I am working on a 1936 Bentley with no drawings but show how to get what you need to build a car.

 

There is also a lot of intuition and base knowledge that is used in building something from scratch when you have little to go from.

 

I hope that helps some..

 

Thank you for the questions....

Section 8

fitting the cowel

This is the hardest part of the model and you need to gently heat the part several times to get it to work.

 

cut a piece over size  and cut slowly as you go.

you can clean up kncks and cracks later as long as they are small.

 this takes a lot of time to do so dont rush it. You may have to do several times to get it right.
