Flash point is working on a 68 camaro promod i wanna pick that up next.


I will hold off, the Camaro is nice, but I want the other two he is working on. 68 Mustang and 63 Corvette.

I have pictures of the 68 Mustang, and it looks really nice. It is in primer now, but needs a few tweaks based on what Terry is saying. As for the 63, my understanding it is a ways off from being added to the site for purchase. I guess, I will either wait for Flashpoint to finish his 63 or I will be working on my own Pro Mod using an original 63 1/16 model. Just have to figure how much time I want to spend on body work. :D

Joe... your build is coming along very nice man. Any more updates to share with us?? Can't wait to see more.

Bart... I can't wait to see what Terry at flashpoint has in store for the 68 and 63 Vette. I keep tossing around a few ideas for bodies for the pro mod I want to build and still debating on cutting up a body that I have or go with a resin body. although I am undecided at this point.

Joe I am all over the place with builds... lol... I have been eyeing a 41 Willys in 1/16 scale that I would like to build up as a Pro Street/Pro Touring car as well.

Joe any updates for us?

Oh on a side note I just got a communication saying they were starting on my 1st order from TDR/Shapeway. The original email said I should receive the item on 10/7, so it is definitely more like I said earlier. Give it 4-6 weeks to receive the item once ordered.

Joe I hear you when you don't have the time. I know there are times that I just want to build and can't cause of other things that life brings up. Look forward to more soon

Bart, Yeah i received an email from shapeways that my order didn't hit the printer yet, just excited to get the turbos lol.

Chris, Yeah been getting ready for winter, Once it starts getting dark at 5pm i will hit it hard.


So i didn't like the original motor mount/firewall, so i redid it and got it skinned. will still need some final body work and i want to round the edges more where the inserts are, I received my order from RB Motion so i can get started on my suspension and links once i get my motor mount and the trans mount done.

Coming along there pretty nicely Joe. Are you avoiding that drivers area and getting that framed in? :)

Thx. for the compliments guys, For my first time doing a chassis i'm very happy the way it is turning out.


Bart, going to get the transmount and inner rails done then do the drivers area and foot pedal mounts, When i do the upper part of the cage i might pin it so it's removable to make it easier for final assembly.

:) I had a quiet chuckle to myself reading that Joe. :D
I am going through my assembly of the chassis in the same manner as you, getting the top frame rails and associated supports done first, then on to the main top bars.
Looks great so far mate. B)

Thx. Guys, Well received my turbos from TDR. There suppose to be 1/16th 4-1/2" turbos, here's a picture of them next to the 1/16th block. They are umm a little to big, Not sure if shapeways messed up the order or what, I sent TDR and email will see what happens. I will say the detail is amazing on these parts, Bummer is another long wait to get more. haven't had much time to work on it, Hope to have an update for you guys soon.

Tiny little update, Been doing lots of yard work with all the leaves falling plus doing some side work on 1:1's. Finally had a chance to work on it a little today, did some mods to the Bell housing and made the Trans mounts. Cut down some aluminum tube in half to make the chassis part of the mounts, also fitted the TDR u-joint and made some Air-pods, still needs lots of detailing. Going to build the reverse lever tomorrow after work and hopefully get the center of the chassis knocked out.
