large scale hot rod
Posted 29 December 2011 - 07:22 PM
Most techniques have been used in this one: styrene sheet (body), 3D printing (wheels and rear tire walls), and steel and alloy for the frame and suspension.
I started off building 25th scale when I was about 8 years old and have been building models ever since.

Now that is cool, chopped and channeled 32. Just amazing work and even in 1/4 scale... Great work!

I would love to see many more pictures of it if you're willing to post them.

@ Mr.1/16th, Almost all of the 1/4 scale parts had to be scratch built.
The engine block is from the Visible V8 kit with a few additions like head bolts and details in the casting.
I doctored a carburetor , molded, and cast 6 off. Venturis are made from plastic wine glass stems. The wheels and tires
are a combination of turned masters, 3D modeling and printing, and mold-cast techniques.
Here are a few construction photos.

This is quite a change from the 25mm long hot rods I used to build up from the "free toys" in corn flakes packets.

Maybe it was Red Planet since one of them is Val Kilmer's face.

I have a place to put it but I think I won't build anymore big ones......like a 1/4 scale top fuel car.
