Front sheet metal is complete and ready for the paint shop. I added some detailing to the radiator and top of the hood. Not quite true to the car but I think it needed some details that were common to the period.

You just make it look way too easy. I'm having huge problems with scratchbuilding simple parts, like Throttle Bodies for Drag Cars and you just build entire model from scratch. :blink:  It looks excellent to me, keep it coming.

Time to get to the suspension but have to get some wheels fo this.Checked the read axel and had to remove a cross member to relocate it.

on to the wheels. I used an empty tape enter for the molds to make the solid wheels out of 1/4" stripps aboit 13 1/2" long colied inside.

After some sanding they are starting to look like wheels. Need to make some temporary centers until I can make up the wire rims for it.

 I found that I had to fit the front fenders to the inner fenders before I  can do the front suspension.

I heat up .20 plastic and started to form the ineer fender by hand and eye. I reheated and formed several times until

I had the shape I wanted close to the origional, There is still some additional fitting and reshaping of the hood panels but

that may be able to wait for now, I rework things as I go along as more parts are fitted since I negleted to fully look at things before

I build them up. I have the same problem on the carberators in as they ended up too high to clear the hood so I will have to rework them.

That is one of the things that happen when you have no drawings to go by and only eyeballing off the photos. Things are close enough

for most people looking at them and it serves the purpose to give a credable model.

have the springs roughed out and the front and rear axel built up now. It is starting to come together now. Just have to finish the wheel and get the thing put together for the test assembly to make sure the part are all going to come togehter properly.

Thank you for the comments. I have been working on the chassis and have the fuel tank done and located, the rear jacks in place,(this car had built in jacks that woulf totally lift the car off the tires), and the rear floor pan in place. I also have almost 200 photos on my photobucket page that I have a link to below.

Other's (Me) build what they can, but this guy definetly builds what he wants! B)  That is impressive scratchbuilding. I never had luck of bending styrene that nicely.

The bell housing has been formed by heating the plastic and forming with a bottle cap for the female mold and the handle to a exacto wood holder for the male mold.

I added some bits just so it is more interesting even though you probably will not see them on the completed model.

water lines have been added to the front also.

A quick shot of the interior start. The seats are all hollow heat formed backs and made with .40 and .20 plastic.

More to come on them. Seat tracks are in place so I came get the height correct.

Thank you for the comments and for looking.

I would put something in the scartch thread but since I scratch build everything and use no commercial parts.

I try to add progress pictures everyday the model is about 2 days ahead of the pictures.

I now have about 200 pictures on the photobucket link. I dont post all the pictures i have on photobucket.

 

Kenn :)
