John, I've run out of adjectives for your work, simply put, you are THE MAN!!!

 

One question (Which I'm sure you've been asked before), how do you keep the Alclad from rubbing off while you're building and adding details?

Hi Mike........thank you for the question.........I try to plan building and adding details ahead of time.......with the thought of  "Not"  touching the Alclad as much as possible.......when I do handle the Alclad ,I use a soft cloth or tissue.........when I apply Alclad, I use a very little amount of Alclad..........so it is very easy to rub off when handling........but,it is also very easy to touch up any area were the Alclad has rubbed off........I just mask around the area and re-mist the Alcad over that area........I think the key to applying Alclad is to use very little so that you can get a  nice chrome look and to be able to touch up rubbed off areas.........thanks

The heads are on upside down

 

 

Are you talking about the heads or the valve covers ?

 

My guess is, the valve covers are not upside down.

 

( However, I seem to recall seeing the valves covers on Hemi's installed both ways. )

He's probably referring to the valve covers which should have the corners with the pronounced notch towards the intake. They are up side down, but only something you'd notice while counting rivets. The engine is yet another example of Johns skill with Alclad. Beauttifule and ultra impressive.

 

This would be a tough build for anyone to pull off, but we all know John will do it again.

 

thanks for sharing, John

Hi  Alyn........thank you for your kind comment........I really did try to build this engine the best I could........using reference pictures of the real car and using parts from my parts box.........I just try to make stuff work without spending to much money........I messed up again.........just goes to prove I am not perfect........and I stand on that statement.........I will just have to not make that mistake again........thanks

AMAZING work . And the skill to pull this off is off the charts ,,,,,But I'm sorry that is one butt ugly car ( sorry , never been much of a radical customs fan myself ) But it just goes to show ,, the builder of the actual car was thinking WAAAAAY out of the box when he thought this one up.

 

And in actuality the valve covers on the model are from a 426 Hemi ( and yes upside down) the 1/1 car is a 354 or 392 ( dist is in the rear ) which used a completely different shaped valve cover .

In scale can it be seen ? sure , but most will never catch it. carry on.

 

ps,,,,,,IF ( key word ) you want to change them,,,, the right ones are in both the Boot Hill Express and the Miss Deal Stude kit

I agree. The heads & valve covers ARE upside down. And I'm not counting rivets, just making an observation.

Just because John can build doesn't mean he's immune to mistakes..... I bet it happens to us all.

Kinda slow, John.  Would you mind building faster and put in more details, please?

John... killer work my friend. That chassis looks great and the engine looks killer in Alclad. The air bag compressor and tank are beautiful pieces as well. I love the Keg... It looks awesome. This is sure coming along nice.

John where did you get the battery clamps, or did you make them? If you made 'em you've gotta spill it on how, because they're perfect!

Thanks Mike.........I made them with 3 different sizes of Evergreen styrene........glued together and a little sanding........I made them really quick,maybe 20 minutes........after looking at my pictures I could have evened them out a little bit.........but,for 1/24 scale they aren`t that bad.......next time I make some I will show how and I will take my time and do a better job........thanks
