the bench was a try out thing i made some gold / black paint and washed it on , then rubbed it and made the seems black
thought it was cool to make the bench look a bit used , lived ..
not unhappy with the result , something different from the usual browns or .....

64292_250108898455361_1612264881_n.jpg

strated on the engine , needs some cleaning up , the gold on the carbs is only a base layer , will be washed

thnx guys !!
 
yesterday i could not get on the forum , so here is the update of yesterday , i have a nother one i will post today because of the max 10 pics ...

i made the sparkplug wires , i took thin brass wire , and on the valve covers i used the outer skin of electrical wire to resemble the cap that gos in the hole there
i took the electrical wire and stripped a tiny bit and pulled out the wire thats inside so i can slide in the brass wire..

the distributer i had no other option to place that up hig at the front ..all scratch build

310080_250629045070013_1616724125_n.jpg

actually used new valve covers since the otehr ones looking terrible , made them chrome and the bolts black
i wanted it not to look to show-y

76168_250629055070012_863067982_n.jpg

the sratch build distributer , painter that and the wires after puttting them on , used red enamel paint and aplied it with a wooden pin stick with a sharp edge .. (usually used for pieces of meat)

i got the idea to louvre the trunk , some revel kits have 2 versions .. this one did not have that ..
i had some left over sides of hoods from revel kits with louvres ...

it would have been easy to work them into the trunk but then i would end up with what revell makes ..
i wanted something more rough and ....

the sides of the hood , started flat and the other one is already bend a tiny bit , i kept bending them untoll i got them in the shape of the trunk

:)

483106_251960138270237_729811492_n.jpg

i made a small visor on the front so i can ,et the wood frame i am going to make sit against that
used parts of the roof of my real woody build

73765_251960231603561_1354813928_n.jpg

now the horizontal seem will be gone , i want to make it one piece and add rivits on the sides so it looks like
put on panels , bit rough
also want to make sunken taillights in the lower part and maybe in the middle a fuel filler neck / gasscap sticking out

so still rough but you get the idea

thnx !!

well this udate really shows the idea i had in mind with this rear end

first flattened the bondo

483810_253201971479387_731728270_n.jpg

then the exiting part , this can easely go wrong , i first messured 3 times and drilled with a much smaller drill
and then made 2 big holes lol ...

540527_253201951479389_809242909_n.jpg

they seem very big right ? but thats because i took 2 bezels from lego out of my sons box (my old lego) and cut it to become light houses , rewd lenses can be placed behing or on this

554555_253202038146047_795210348_n.jpg

all together the proportions look good , i will bondo slighly aroiund the edges
