Thank you to everyone who took the time to comment. I'm getting the valve covers printed (from my 3d model) so I can mold and cast them in metal.

I have had to slow spending on bits as it seems like the industry I work in is taking a long break........:-(

A lot of pieces are finished and waiting to go on as soon as I get more fasteners that are the right type and scale.

Also printing the front Avon cycle tire to be period correct. Will cast in black urethane.

 

thanks again...pix soon.

Stunning! Building in such a large scale and with this level of precision, skill and detail, must come close to "modeling" the experience of building the 1:1. Can't wait for more, more, more... B)  :)

Thank's all for reply.

 

Ognib, the rat rod is :http://www.modelcars...showtopic=51823

 

Bernard Kron,  the 1/4 scale stuff is almost like parts of 1:1. The car in my avatar is the last build for street use. I drove it for many years. 454-LS7.

 

Hope to have more work soon so I can "justify" spending on the rest on the materials like fasteners, molding and casting.

I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted in this thread. I have almost finished another car besides this one.

The rubber molds I made for the fiat body were intended for a brush on urethane but the material wouldn't play.

I ended up using vinyl ester tooling gelcoat and VE resin for the layup. Minimal shrinkage with maximum cost. :)

The body is just placed on atm. It won't be green, that's the gelcoat color.
