This is incredible fellas! Wish I could comment on every part, but that would involve me sitting here all night, as I spend at least 15 mins on each pic, just staring in awe :lol:
From now on whenever I'm feeling low on inspiration/motivation, I'm gonna check in here to see the possibilities :D

Scratchbuilt basswood playhouse in 1/25 scale. I built it from Popular Science Magazine plans but did it in scale instead of 1:1

Just making sure before I put my foot in my mouth for what I was going to say.

Now that I know, I have seen bill's work in person it is truly amazing. I think micro nitro and other machinist have real compitition on their hands. If that's what it was about.

I joined this forum simply to say to all those who have posted something scratchbuilt in this thread: "You are insane."

Everything is absolutely awesome and awe-inspiring. Cant get over how great this stuff all is! You should all be proud as punch!
I wish I had something completed to post up!!!

Oh and ask mopar (zac) about his stealth-chargers!

pedal box assembly for a 1/12 porsche 935. It did change a bit as the cross shaft is now brass and there is a clip i bent up like the real one that holds the shaft in. The pedal arms are photoetch.

scratch built fuel pressure regulator for the same kit with RB Motion AN fittings
Posted Image
V band clamp made from photoetch sprue for the Porsche
Posted Image
real one looks like this.
Posted Image
which is for this. Only thing from the kit is the short pipe that come off the exhaust and the blow off valve "hat" everything else I made. Even the spring is hand made!

Nothing like some of the stuff posted, but I do dable in fabricating bits.

Firefighting tools, left to right drip torch, 1 gallon canteen, swatter, halligan tool, McLeod, prybar and a can style backpack pump

Posted Image


The tools are mostly bought, but the hose reel, nozzle, tank, fencing and brackets are all scratchbuilt.

I've built a few utility bodies, here is one I'm working on for a salvage truck.

Ok, I wanna play. This is a completely scratch built 1/64 flatbed trailer. I even machined the wheel and Stemco hub from aluminum, added lug nuts from RB Motion, cast it into resin, drilled and filed the two oval holes and then cast it a final time. I collect these trucks and at the time I made this, no company offered a flatbed or a two hole Budd wheel.
