This front friction shock was scratchbuilt from some PE parts, stainless tubing and a aluminum rod.

I just finished the frontaxle on this ride...
Now it´s time for the engine build...Hemi and Hilborn. Unfortunatly I have not found a good Hilborn setup, so I think I have to scratchbuild one... ...then cast it in resin of course.
here is some pics. of the axle...

It´s hard to find a decent steering gear, but this model will do. After some modification I made a mold and cast it in resin.

I think I finally figured out why your work is always so impressive. Your paint work appears to be impeccable, no orange peel, nothing that "gives away" the fact that it's 1/25th scale AND it looks like little 1/25th scale men have assembled it with 1/25th scale tools. There is never a mar, never an errant drop of glue, rub-through on the paint, finishes always seem accurate to 1:1, scale and details are always spot-on, etc... I love it!
