Been off the internet for awhile with other projects Ira and just got back. I started keeping up in the beginning of your build and now that I'm back.....WOW!  I may have to have my jaw surgically re-attached after viewing the photos. You really did an outstanding job. This is the type of build that gets other modelers to really use their imagination on their own projects. I may be a lot of work, but the results are worth it.

 

Thanks for the kind words Tom!

BIG PIPES!

 

I cut 4 lengths of Aluminum Tubing for exhaust pipes. I cleaned and sanded the ends and glued them in place with Zap-A-Gap.

I painted the insides with Flat Black and sanded the ends smooth again.

TIRE SLICING!

 

The USA-1 Racer needs Tires!
So I carefully Slice a section of tire with a single-edge razor blade. Then I Slice 4 more Good Sections.

Here is the Inside View.
I tried to cut them straight but cut all of the Tires on an angle.  I had to go back and Slice a little more until I got 4 Tires even.

After a little more Slicing and Sanding here they are!

I glued the Tire Sections to the USA-1 Racer's Underbody with Zap-A-Gap Glue.

 

DSCN5377V_zpsc0645f72.jpg

 

Well that about does it.
I have to do a little touch up here and there and finish a few details and the USA-1 Vette LSR Team is Finished. The next photos you see will be of the Finished USA-1 Transport and Racer!
