and tonights build session

first tried all the wheels on the truck , they still need a wash though

Posted Image

Posted Image

crappy pics but oh well

first made some rear frame rails , doing it this way because its easy and due to the smooth underside you woulkd not see a whole chassis if i made one

Posted Image

some sides to close it up

Posted Image

rear plating , need one more layer so its the same hight as the rest and i can close the seem and really make it one piece

Posted Image

set the rear to roughly the ride hight and put a loose wheel in front

I love what your doing here Richard, what a cool combo. I really like the look of the 32 on the back on the first page but I think the salt lake racer on the back was the perfect choice. Can't wait to see where you take this, I love watching your build ups. Keep it going bud

well felt like building again today ... i'm feeling a bit better now , first the rough belly pan work i did a few days ago

Posted Image

used old vw beetle hub caps from a incomplete 1/16 kit and removed the vw logos and painted them silver / chrome

Posted Image

and now you see why i used the cobra wheels the caps fit in these perfect and still show a lip of the rim so i was able to color match that to the body

Posted Image

Posted Image

then i scewed up a bit last week at the rear and had to make somthing to cover my mistake .. i used rings and taillights for this
i have to undo the lights from paint and make them red .. did not want taillights but like said i had no choice

Posted Image

assembly

Posted Image

looking at the semi shine i decided not to clear coat it , a deep shine would not fit this car imo

started teh detail work today

first painted the rollbar chrome

Posted Image

red lenses and chrome bevels , pretty nervewrecking painting lol

Posted Image

then did the front suspension . rods and backside of the rims chrome

Posted Image

hamdpainted the "window" frame and although it was a risk i was able to get a super tight line and shape

Posted Image

overall looks

Posted Image


i was pleased with the results but pretty static and plain , i wanted it to look like it did several runs on the salt ...
this is what the first set up is atm
dont mind the 22 i did that with black and painted the center with chrome , looked cool untill i touthed it b accident and tried
to clean it off , the paint was east but the back didnt want to work with me :)
so i redid the black but ruined the numbers and made them too thick.
also after the salt weathering it now looks stupid , the chrome inside of the numbers is now gone ..
so i will fic that later with something new

make it or break it >>

got rid of the ugly lettering by wet sanding it , then downtoned the white a bit ..
i would have been better of with a darker color now on the pics you cant see the salt effect real good , would have popped so much better on a dark color

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

hard to shoot in this light > the open headers / exhaust that will come out of the side later on , gonna do those chrome

Posted Image

Posted Image

national street rod association decal on the rear

Posted Image

Posted Image

some decals , need some mild weathering later on

this is the part where the real weathering begins .. white arylic paint with superfine sanddust mixed ...

Posted Image

the bellypan , did that darl with salt .. wanted it to stick out and if it was light grey it didnt pop that good

Posted Image

salt build up low on the sides

Posted Image

Posted Image

painted the seatbelts , have to redo it with matt paint this was gloss and that looks weird , the chrome closing stuff (??) is scratch made

Posted Image

some outside pics where you see the difference between the blue and salt better

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

i probable will make the truck into a shorter truck so i can hang a sort of flat / low trailer behind it with room for 2 cars ..
then i can add a future racer or mix and match ..

The racer looks great Richard, I'm too into shiny stuff to do any weathering, but maybe someday....

thnx and well i love shiney as well but weathering is jsut so much fun to do .. and also a challenge ..
for me it makes a model come to life really..
i knew this one had to be weathered because looking at older dry lake racers i just loved the used and dirty pics more then the clean ones :lol:

the exhaust i want to use and make on the sides (later on)

Posted Image

placed a shifter (too dark to get on a pic) and i found a great steering wheel fits like a glove , needs paint still

Posted Image

Posted Image

got a lego helmet from my son and cut it so its open face , will close the visor holes and paint it later

Posted Image

Posted Image

then got it towed away for the night

Posted Image

Posted Image

painted the shifterknob and steering wheel while they where inside lol
made the steering wheel brown wood like and chrome..
the knob started with a base of chrome , then a light wash with brown and orange clear from tamiya over that , almost looks like polished walnut wood

Posted Image

did some general clean ups after the salt weathering
