Looking good!! i see you added some small bolts here and there, i have some brass ones here, man those little suckers are expensive! LOL but they sure make a huge difference. i have a 1/4th scale 426 hemi engine i have been workin on here and there, and i am replacing all the molded in bolts with real ones.......it really makes it look nice!

your welds are lookin very nice too!
cheers

yea, is that fiberglass cloth? looks like it to me........if so, nice work! i think it would be tough to make small parts out of fiberglass cloth!

thanks guys, bryan m my brothers got a 1/6 scale flathead and I've been thinking about the same thing, just it would suck to drill through all the diecast and dr. yes It's supposed to be fiber glass, not sure if its totaly perfect and your guy's opions about it would rock!

I have made a bit of progress, in the last post the tran's was done so I started paint, looking on some fourms fourm it seames micoballons where the best, but I couldn't find any so I tried tamiya texture paint, had to have it shipped all the way from hong kong!

Posted Image

first looks don't look to good......

Posted Image

but I kept going and got it kinda finished:

What ya think? it doesn't look to good to me,but your opinions would be great!! before I go and try to strip it.....

Also I said I was done on the tran's mods, supposed I was wrong here's another, I originally left this off cause I was afraid that It wouldn't fit in the car after the work, but leaving it stock kinda bothered me...

Thanks for looking!!!! and your opinions are greatly appreciated!!!

I'm reluctant to criticize but I feel the texture on the transmission is excessive. The real thing is not close to that rough. Orange peel from too distant spray paint would be more correct IMHO.

Yeah too gritty,,but that would be perfect for a cast alunimum intake or an undercoat for something rusty.

thanks for your comments guys, racer27x don't worry about critisim, I crave it man, trying to get this the best i can,

about the tran's, ended up striping it, next update I'll get it finished but for now here's a bit.

also sorry about the lack of updates. been busy school started back up, for some reason I thought i was smart this year and I went and sinned up for a AP class, now all my modeling time is homework time


I worked more on the fan, build some stuff to go on top that tamiya hadn't even noted...

Posted Image

Then this black rubber thing was cut out from some rubber sheet.

thanks so much iderek

 

Sorry for the long wait and unfortunately I have little to show,

I don't know why but for some reason I have just given up on this, and not just this car, but all modeling in general. This was my first year in High school and the is homework hitting me hard. Kinda just slowly gave up and moved on to other hobby's that take less time. I feel kinda weird posting just to say bye, but I hate it when I go around looking at old threads then they just die out without any notice, so I figured I'd try not to be another one of those.

I do have one pic, nothing that amazing, its just that I finished it a few weeks ago and just got around to taking a picture (its the bottom of the Intake)

Sorry for ending the thread with suckish new's, but hopefully I'll pick this back up in the summer wave.gif
