I read all 72 pages, today. Awesome amount of work. It's amazing how great it's turning out, with all the 1st time techniques, you are doing. Make sure to take pictures, when you blow it up with firecrackers. LOL

SOB, man, I've got my milling machine now, and I could probably pull of the block, heads and valve covers without too much trouble, no way with the rest of that on there so far without CNC.

 

Though I didn't get a rotary table with it.  Oh well.

Hey VintageDragFan,

 

Maybe a dumb question, but is operating a mill like working an etch-a-sketch?  I've been looking at some smaller hobby mills...

 

Later,

Hog

thanks for all of the interest guys, really do appreciate it, I guess I kinda took the winter off when it got pretty cold and I didn't feel like freezing in the garage, it still sits on the bench just as I left it, last time I worked on it I spent hours making 2 inter-coolers that ended up not fitting where I planned, got a little disgusted with it and haven't touched it sense, lol, I am getting the itch to work on it again, so maybe have an update soon

 

thanks again for all of the interest and support!!

I understand the cold weather problem Bill. In the winter I can only do small parts painting. No place/booth for spray can or airbrush. Really looking forward to more of your work.

I just found this site and I must say that I'm impressed, not just with this aluminum hemi build, but ALL the models I've seen so far. 

 

Bill, please let me ask ... will there be a time soon when we could see this build in person? 

 

Oh, and one other question... If I'm willing to drive over to visit, may I help you bleed the brakes?  :lol:

,.. last time I worked on it I spent hours making 2 inter-coolers that ended up not fitting where I planned, 

 

I somehow feel that your 'cuda will make plenty of horsepower even without those intercoolers. Haha
