Alright, I have gotten some more work done on this one.  

 

Kinda hard to see from the pics, but I have it set up where the gear shift will actually connect to the transmission. I had one of these seats in the parts box, says Fiat on the bottom, pretty certain is is from the Double Dragster set. I made a resin copy.

 I scratch built the compressor and re-purposed the air-tank for the airbags. The rear brake lines are ran, and the electrical wiring started. Most of this will not be seen once the body is in place, so I will be rigging it up so that it will be removable. I have been adding a bunch of Grandt Line and similar bolt head detail.For the front end the brake lines will be ran "in the frame".

Also some fine mesh for the radiator from the Red Barron kit.

Alright, test fitting everything before painting up the body.  I know most guys remove the center of the roof to see th detail, but I like the top in place for this project. SOo..I have the body set up with retainers in the rear, and there will be "bolts" that hold the front side in place just at the base of the firewall.  Hope to be doing final assmeply next weekend if paint goes well.

looking very good.. I realike what you have going!!

 

Thanks guys!

 

I go the red sprayed on the body yesterday, so maybe I will be able to get most of it completed this weekend. Not sure, tho, normally I spray bodies with Lacquer but this time enamel, so there will certainly be some additional drying time. More pics this weekend.

I like the work you are doing on the front spring and axle combination....  this is an inventive bit of work that will pay off big time for you!!!!

 

Keep up the good work!!!

Thanks, Even tho the Red Barron kit is 1/24 the rims worked out great in the newer AMT tires. The red went on a couple days ago, but since I used enamel, will have to wait a few more days to polish it out, decal it, and then clear.

Thanks Bill, it was an idea that I thought would flow better than it did. It kinds feels a little more cobbled together than I was hoping, but for the most part convincing I hope. More pics this weekend.

Finally back to work on this one! After waiting for the enamel to set up well, I sanded out the red and shot with Tamyia acrylic clear. This will not be polished out to a mirror finish like a modern custom or show rod.If all goes well, this one should be on the shelf after this coming weekend!

I like the look of it up on its feet. Just enough ground clearance to be radical and still keep-it-real. Nice work.

Thanks Ace, that was my goal. In addition, with the "air bag" set up, in theory it could be raised as needed for driving as well. 

 

oh ya, looks great Mark, can't wait to see it all come together now!!

 

Thanks Bill!  I am getting really antsy to get it together, I just have to shoot the center of the top, and then put it all together.
