Hi everyone, got the wire wheels built, painted and mounted. Touched up a few bits on the front end as well. Also trial fitted the tin work. Starting on the motor assembly. Scratch built the manifold and idler pulley tensioner bracket.

Great model. Would you provide some details on how you did the wire wheels for the front?

Posted Image Great job with the Dragster! Especially those front wheels are amazing, but detailing is super all over. I can't wait to see more of this, since I really like Front Engine Dragsters. Very Cool Build.

Hi Bob, apologies for the slow reply, the tutorial was put together in Word and then converted to PDF. Thanks for using the tutorial, hope you turn out some great wheels. With a little patience you can use this technique for 1/25 as well. I use 10 thou rod for those.

Latest update, scratch built the early Hilborn two port injector system, added a scratch built oil pressure gauge with face glass, fuel shutoff cable and handle, ignition cutout switch and cabling and the Vertex magneto, spark plug leads and spark plugs. Started building the headers using copper tubing.

Thanks for following guys. :D

I was beginning to wonder how you were doing on this and BAM, an update with tons of gorgeous work being completed. This whole build has been a true enjoyment to watch from the very beginning. Keep those updates coming Dave.

Fantastic build, Dave! I downloaded your tutorial, and I must say that it explains things very well and consisely. I will definitely try this method out on my next 1/16th dragster project ( I think it would be wise on my part to start on a larger scale first to get some experience). Hats off to you Sir. I can't wait to see how this project ends up! :). :)
