I've read the suggestions about making the front of the LSR car resemble a Corvette, and I can see it.. Squint just right and it could be transformed into something very similar to the factory Corvette SS sports Prototype from the late 50's.

Really neat...How about a Vette nose for the Vette Attempt?


Thanks Tony!

Good Idea, I'll be thinking about that... B)

MORE TAILLIGHTS!!!

I needed to add a liitle width to the Tailgate because I added 1/8th inch width to the Pick-Up Bed. I used 1/16th wide strips to each side and carved them down to fit. I also added a 1/16th inch to the bottom of the Tailgate.


Posted Image


I am using 16th Scale Cobra Headlights for Transporter Taillights. I driiled a hole for each light and glued them in place...


Posted Image


I drilled 2 more holes in the Tailgate and glued 2 lights in place.

PARA-SCOOP!!!

I made a Parascope Scoop from rectangular plastic tubing. Here is the first piece of tubing in place, each end cut on an angle...



Posted Image


Here is the second piece in place. Both ends cut on an angle and one end is filled with plastic strip.



Posted Image


Then I sanded down the edges, to round them off a bit.
All Done!!!

WATCH OUT!!! There's a Bug on the desk!

What a difference between these 2 projects....working on both of them at the same time... B)

Man you have some really cool concepts. I wasn't sure I was going to like the vette front end on the hauler but I'll be ###### if you didn't make that flow with everything else and that vette hood scoop just looks tough. Can't wait to see it all finished, keep it up.


Thanks for the kind words Jason!

Glad you like it... B)
