I was just looking at this and it hit me with what the interior is missing! You should add a delay box and a few other electronics on the passenger floor.

That's just what I would do though. Looks amazing nonetheless

Thanks peter ill see what I can do with some electronics but I wont get a delay box because this is going to run in pro not super pro.

paint looks great! is it posted somewhere?

 

Thanks! That one is not posted yet, but it shouldn't take too long to complete it, so it's possible that it will be posted in Drag Racing Models after it's finished. :)

 

If you scratchbuild the Ingnition coil, how about a little tutorial? The one that we have in our Chevelle, looks pretty much the same so I'd want to have a couple of those also.

Looks awesome bud! The water pump is easy. Check out the one I scratched up from pics in my bee WIP. I used part of a 57 chevy oil filter and made the flange from styrene plus put the power wire on it. Not perfect but with everything going on in my engine bay it passes the visual test lol

Alright everybody better watch out because Im armed with some k&s aluminum tubing, a mitre box, a 1:1 vega with what I'm replicating, and some imagination and skill(more imagination than skill but we'll see what I can do). I should have an update of my progress a little later and I doubt you'll even recognize this bad boy!

heres some teaser pics of what ill be doing throughout the night, pretty ,much everything you see will be scratch built except for the jesel belt drive, probably not the motor plate(ill kick it around and maybe do it), and the alternator wont be a MSD. other than that get your popcorn ready and sit down for a show of a brand new meziere water pump, moroso vacuum pump, small crank pulley, and a breather for the valve cover and a vacuum pump breather. I wont get it all done tonight so some will get done tomorrow and probably finished late tomorrow early Wednesday. keep tuned for periodic updates on what Im doing.

good question, I have no idea! i'll probably cut a small piece of an old sock and dip it in some royal purpal oil to get the accurate appearance

heres the latest I got the small crank pully started, and vacuum pump is completed and after the rest is finished ill paint it.

 I did a small tutorial on how I made the vacuum pump, I hope it helps you guys.

start of the crank pulley

103_0708_zpsea42ca97.jpg

making the vacuum pump, I used K&S aluminum tubing, evergreen sheet, 1/16th evergreen rod. nothings been glued yet so Iys fine that the pulley is crooked.

Great scratchbuilding! It sure does help when there is a 1:1 car where it is possible to check measures and how the parts really look and work. Both, the balancer and water pump are looking very good, just like real parts.

Thanks niko! It's a huge help have two 1:1's outside because you can look at the part from different angles rather than in pictures only being able to see a few different sides of it.
