ENGINE DETAILS...



These Engines look real nice built up, I like them, ordered another kit from Ebay!
I have added a few more parts and painted some details on the Engines. Still have to add all of the "Gas ?" Lines...Almost Finished!

BACK MAC DOOR!!!


I cut out a Rear Door from sheet plastic, then cut out the window opening...

Next I painted it Flat Black, added clear Lexan for the window and a MAC Decal!

Looks great but i hate to think that Mac Tools would still be around in the future with all the trash tools they sell. lol  How are you planning on doing window glass now that the dash is in it?

THANKS!

By the way this isn't a future build, why wait, lets go A/G Racing now!

Thanks for asking!
I used a product I just heard about, its called "Formula 560" Canopy Glue. I just glued the windows in and the Canopy Glue went on nice & even, dried quickly and pretty clear!

GLASS & CHROME!!!



Glueing the windows in was a little tricky. The right side window needed some trimming to fit, the others were a good fit. I used "Formula 560" Canopy Glue for the first time and I am impressed. Formula 560 applies easily, flows very evenly, dries fast and very clear!

I cut down the sides of the 16th scale Mustang Grill and glued it in place...

Ok, I kept skippin' this thread, The title just didn't inspire me. But I kept seein' you guys posting, adding page after page. So.. I finally checked it out, thinkin' to myself that this is going to be lame. Well guys, I was wrong. This is one really cool build. I especially liked the use of the pod racer engines. This is one very creative build. Just proves that you can't judge a thread by its title.

Looking good!  Do you listen to some Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon while building this! 


I used to listen to Pink Floyd, now I like Jazz more...
