I've been away for a little while, great to see that this thread is still going. The work being posted here just keeps getting more and more amazing!

 

Please keep posting this stuff people, it literally makes my day to see such incredible talent :D

wish i had this talent what did u use to make the turbo


Thanks Dustin, I appreciate that :)

 

The turbo was made completely from various shapes and sizes of Evergreen strip/rod/sheet.

The intake and compressor parts were made from rod. I heated the rod and wrapped it around an appropriately sized tube. I then cut off the excess and did some shaping with sandpaper/files.

The smaller details were added with appropriately sized sheet and strips, also shaped with files as necessary.

I was doing a proper tutorial on making turbos, but I lost the pieces I was using for it in the process of moving house :rolleyes:

 

Patience is all it takes though. Once you break the part down into simple shapes, you can put it together piece by piece, like a jigsaw puzzle. ;)

Okay, this is absolutely Nothing compared to other ones in here, but here are my Battery Cable Connectors, scratchbuilt from Sheet Styrene. It was hard enough to get two that looked the same...

They are for my '64 Belvedere I just finished....Here's the WIP if anyone is interested: http://www.modelcars...showtopic=67211

 

NOTE: Otherwise the engine, or anything else in that picture is NOT scratchbuilt. ;)

just finished the mill for my diorama >


inspired by randy d's awsome mill i started to build my own , used some of his idea's and used lego's for the base ..
this opens up a whole new world because lego is really workable and so stirdy as a base ...

so with lego , a tiny bit of bought styrene and a lot of old scrap plastic , parts box parts and guitar string i got to this

this is my 74 dart based of my dads dead dart that he wants to restore i pretty much scratch built the rear end of it, its a 340 with duster hood scoops and aar cuda stripes, Harry P. hated this thing, yes this is how my Dads Old Dead Garage Experiment will look eventually. Back befre i was born my dad had the whole thing primed and ready to paint he was still living at his parents house and it was goint to rain so my grandfather pushed the thing out of the garage and parked his car in it. that ruind the fresh prime heres what it looks like, then heres the scratch part and the finished project. Oh Yeah my mom things since it dont run its a storage unit poor car :unsure: .

I have accurately determined that the next time I feel like whining because someone doesn't make a part I need, I'll just shut up.
