Hi,
A little update.

 

This little rod has a Buick v6 engine i have a engine from a buick model , now it's hard to find a engine like this so i planned to make a mold of it so i can make copie's of it from resin.

resinparts3.jpg
This is the mold i made from silicone rubber.

Well this is what you get a nice copy (white) of the original (black).

Even the ribs on the valvecover did work great stuff resin.

 

See you next time.

I have seen a project log of this show car over on coffin corner2, I wonder if that builder has decided to join our wonderful group of styrene addicts.

Update,

Took the resin engine cut off the transmission and cleaned it.
Then put it together .

The result.

Also made the blower smaller i think the original is a 6-71 and i think this six has a 4-71, well this is the result.
P1030236.jpg

Made all the holes in the engine and dryfit the distributer and the pulleys.

P1030259.jpg

All fit nice now it's time to put some color on this little 6.

Happy building

I always thought of doing the Mork and Mindy showrod and have the shell of the car mocked up.

The red is the tire.

Working on the tubeframe put it on the drawing see off it fit.

I also made the intake (i think  ::) )  first draw it on a piece of paper.

And he presto.

dryfit.jpg
I put the parts to see if the scale was right and if it will fit when the time is there.
