Yes, they are partly homegrown. The inserts are the kit wheels which has been adjusted (bigger) to fit into the aluminium rings from Scaleproduction/Germany.

 

Happy You like´m ;)

 

Cheers

Søren

its one of the few rims ive seen where they managed to update the rim to modern standards while maintaning the classic look

 

 

on a side note, i got my rims mounted aswell

this is the way the model sits mocked up, it might stil just a hair higher in the front once everything is in place but the jeste is there

That Celsior, is that basically like what they sold in North America as a Lexus, is it the RWD V8 32 Valve 4 Cam? If so I have one of these in my shop at work right now, interesting car to try and do a starter on.

 

Nick

 

Yes.  Less cubes than a stock cruiser donk but more horses and i'll be adding a turbo.

well we got the elcamino out of blasting and it has a few problem spots but nothing that cant be fixed.

IMG_20130104_193221.jpg

its got a small crack in the bed but a little glue and puddy and sanding will take care of that

IMG_20130104_193230.jpg

and the cowls been repaired once so itll need attention. i also threw some better wheels under it to try to get a good stance not sure if this is the style ill go with yet or not

IMG_20130104_192932.jpg

IMG_20130104_192918.jpg

ditch the rim Brandan

not only do they look like pooh-pooh, if you hit a railroad crossing at 90 MPH and catch a few feet of air those rubber bands will disentigrate upon impact

and you can forget about sneaking off the road and cutting through a cornfield to get past that 18 car pile up with those puppies

Finally made a start on the Mustang before I return to work tomorrow :(.  Better late than never!

Removed the battery etc molded to the inner wing to make some room for the supercharger, and detached the gearbox crossmember which will have to be moved towards the rear.

My guys aren't cheap to hire, just ask the guy who signs the paychecks.................................luckily the dollars are in 25th scale.

 

Thanks Michael, it too is a work in progress (Like most things I own.)

Okay here's start of my El Camino.

 

ENGINE:

Engine starting point changed since i found better one from my parts box. It's still a big block Chevy but transmission is 4 speed. That Lenco would have been too hard to use in street. Engine is now at that point that i must have to start put plug wires and that kind of stuff on it.

IMG_1968.jpg?t=1357498020

 

WHEELS & TIRES:

Wheels and tires are also from my parts box. They were good shape but spokes needed some paint. I painted them with Tamiya gun metal.

IMG_1969.jpg?t=1357498279

 

CHASSIS:

Since I removed that original molded exhaust pipe i filled that hole and put some bondo on it. It still need litte more bondo but not much.

IMG_1970.jpg?t=1357498500

 

COOLING SYSTEM:

Original radiator was missing but I found from my parts box that radiator and it fits really good. This kind of long race gets engines over heating so I put twin electric fans to it. Those are from AMT '95 Corvette but after some cutting they fits very good.

IMG_1976.jpg?t=1357499071

 

INTERIOR:

I made holes to the dash board for extra gauges and im happy to the result. Those are not in the greatest place for driver but Co-driver can follow them.

IMG_1973.jpg?t=1357499529

 

BODY:

It needed some bondo but not much and it's almost on that condition that I can put some primer on it.

IMG_1971.jpg?t=1357499667

 

More coming soon so stay tuned. ;)

This is what i was planning on building ,if it's ok ? This is all I've got of the kit , got in a box of parts.

IMG_3583.jpg

 

IMG_3584.jpg73 Duster  50 Bucks !!!!!

Well I was planning on building this but I don't think I will have the time this year. I also saw someone else is building something like it !

I have so many other projects that need to finish ,I think I'll still build a Duster (Amt 71 Duster) that is a complete kit and not as much work!

And I will be a bit more practical for a cross country race.

 

I hope to post some picture soon and get started :)
