Making the core support and also seeing if the radiator is going to fit into place. still have to put the oil cooler together and make the bracket for that.

thank you for the kind words and looking at it. I just wish there was more then just me doing this work on it as each part takes so long to fit and make it right and then figure out the thickness of the paint and so on so it will look good in the end.

But isn't that what scratch building is all about! Hang in there and keep on fabbing.

Was able to do some rim rings tonight and checking for offsets. The rears are with in .02mm and the fronts are real close and will need be just a little neater and clean.

Did the rocker panels after we had the house fire today! had to do some thing to take my mind off of stuff just before leaving to Salt Lake on Wensday.  The other camaro frame is for another project but has some of the same work done to it or will have in the end. For the rim I was making some rings and more fine tuning them for the thickness of the paint and clear that will be added to them so the parts will go together in the end.

Thank every one, the house fire was in the garage as my father was moving his custom truck up to do some work and a fuel line filter (glass on) broke and sparked a nasty fire inside the garage. We all are ok the truck is kind of messed up with wiring and such that was burned.

 

See you in Salt Lake this weekend and hope every one has fun on the forums!

I will be back on building this wild monster here this week, I first like to appoligize to Mark Jones for not bring her to GSL in Salt Lake and wish I did as he was grace enough of going over some real hard detail under standing for this build.

After having about an hr long talk with Mark he was able to walk me through on what needs to be redone (not in a bad way because of looks or any thing) but for making sure every thing will fit under the hood when it's built and done. To understand on what to add and keep for scale work at this level and being 1/24th scale is very hard to make sure it works and fits in the end. Unlike working with brass i'm doing every thing with sheet plastic and there is a very limited space I can work with and still be right.

Again I will have to be deleting some detail and parts but its for the better good of the build then any thing and want to thank Mark D Jones on this for all the great help he is offering me to make sure this build will be as good as it can.
