John, that means so much comin from one of our model heroes! I know most people don't believe these are my first attempts at scratch building, I have never worked with any brass or aluminum before this,I am havin loads of fun with figuring out how to do these things and then seeing it on the car, thanks so much for looking!
Bill.......VERY IMPRESSIVE !!!!!!!!!

Chris you GOTTA get a lathe, it is so kewl to be able to shape metal, mine is just a cheap chinese lathe but it seems to work, I know the sherline is a nice lathe as long as you stick with small stuff, it is kind of limited on how big you can go woth your work, something to consider, your 1/1 car may need some cool stuff too! looking at mills now hope to have one soon!

Brad.. yea these are my first attempts believe it or not, guess I have all ways had a knack for working with metal, have done alot of fabricating on 1/1 cars hot rods, musclecars, love to TRY to fabricate anything I can, allways thought it would be cool to play with a lathe, and it is!! LOL thanks for checkin on the progress! oh and I ordered a mill today!! cant wait to get it , maybe that will help my redneck machining a little!
Truely amazing detail. I can't believe this is your first attempt at lathe work on your builds. Imagine how good you'll be when you get some experience. LOL
