your killing me this car is far beyond a real cuda in awesomeness. if only it ran

Jake, that would be cool huh? thanks

 

 

Yeh, Bill. You may want to consider running it across the Barrett/Jackson auction block when it's done. Let's see if we can get the first $1,000,000.00 model. Plus, that would provide you with the money to buy more tools. :)

 

Looks like you're off to a great start on the frame. The center cross-member looks cool. Good engineering.

 

Don't make the mistake I did and leave your peanut butter samich on the hot brass. It burns the bread and melts the peanut butter! :(

hey Alyn, if that were the case, we would be on our way to Barrett- Jackson as soon as it was done!! it's coming along slowly, I do alot of thinking and studying! it is more challenging than I had originally thought,  but I think I will get through it eventually, I do hate it when my peanut butter melts! thanks bro

hey stranger! I thought you fell off the planet, I'm sure you are itching to get back to it, thanks man!

 

Awesome stuff Bill, your going to machine the rear for it to right? lol

hey Joe, I have been kicking it around, not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, not even sure what type of rear end I'm going to use yet, any suggestions?? thanks Joe

hi Chris, it would be very cool to meet you and see your stuff too, you guy's live on the other side of the planet from me, lol maybe some day I hope, I'm going to try and make the GSL show this year, you planning on going? I appreciate it!!

 

SERIOUSLY.... some fantastic work going on Bill...

thanks Tyrone, if it turns out half as nice as your stuff I will be very happy with it!

Bill, I would say a Fab 9" housing would look great on this project. Given your skill i think you could pull it off.

I started on the back half, I hacked out a frame rail and this is what I came up with, I have got one side basically finished, still need to make one more, this will be a four link set upIMG_1381-vi.jpgIMG_1384-vi.jpgIMG_1386-vi.jpgIMG_1387-vi.jpg

 

thanks for checking on the progress

I thought at first that you stole "Scale Master" Mark's giant ruler, but I see yours says "Pittsburgh", not "General". Beautiful work, Bill. I've been enjoying this from the beginning.

A true Tour of force in the art of scale modeling, the concept,craftsmanship and attention to detail is MAGNIFICENT. Looking forward to the next update.

HI Bill, 

 

I have just gone through the entire thread and I have to say that there are real cars on the road and on race tracks that are not built with this level of engineering, precision and detail. I am in complete awe of your work. 

 

That engine freakin awesome. Does it start?  :D It looks like it would.

Mark would probably get upset if I stole his ruler! thanks Hugh

As always, just beautiful work. Im assuming for all the bends and kinks in the brass, you are doing it in small sections and soldering it together?
