steering wheel / colom chrome (sorry for the blurry pic)

and then painted the edge matt black

599960_262569490542635_1402846508_n.jpg

engine in bright red , just the base needs some washes and some details need to be painted plack etc etc
thought it would pop with all the grey and bare metal

well its on its wheels , i needed to make some custom backsides to glue them on the front and rear axle



changed the engine from red to matte green , the red was to bright red for all the black and greys ..
but ater dryfitting .. hmm maybe i will build a big block out of all the left over parts i have
i also have a drag racing engine , just the bare block

did the grille a bit rougher , on this pic the grille house really shows the bare metal effect

thnx
 
started a custom bigblock v8 out of several parts

used a old incomplete blown v8 but going to build it up without a blower

the exhaust manifolds are from the revell kit , but mounted upside down to the new engine so they run free , i will modify those and make pipes on them


267987_263424767123774_42655279_n.jpg

the valve covers mounted

379214_263424753790442_772294584_n.jpg

lowered the big square in the middle where a blower should mount and placed a left over intake manifold

150712_263424907123760_158156988_n.jpg

cut of a revell gerbox and made it so that is one piece with the driveshaft and can slide in separate from the engine

267987_263424903790427_503014698_n.jpg

like this (tranny is upside down)

Very Cool!! Love the finish on the body! I think the contrast between the early body style and the late style wheels is a nice touch! Keep up the good work!

het thnx , well before i just used the regulair plastic glue , like from revell or humbrol , like the liquid poly glue (watery stuff)
since this saturday i'm working with plaststruct plastiweld , also watery but this glue claimed to glue together all sorts and types of plastics .
so that means i could also glue abs onto styrene etc etc
and i must say is just works .. real bizarre i have like hard plastic sheets that i got out of old window blinds .. its a bit like styrene but harder and i could not glue that with the regulair poly liquid glue , now with plastiweld it just glues togheter and also glues it on all other types of plastics
 
for instance in the upodate i'm posting in this post you will see 3 metal tubes coated with plastic , those are glued to the engine and eitch other with plastiweld .
 
oh and also with plastiweld its settled faster and it feels like its glued together stronger , so like a few seconds and i can already apply pressure or sand or file it



tried some copper bushes for end pipes , off course i will bend the plastic so they will come outward a bit , just for seeing how it looks

26365_263467993786118_2035743208_n.jpg

3 stacks on the engine , these are metal with a plastic dipped coating ( dont know what they are for i scavenged these at work)

16371_263467977119453_422904801_n.jpg

together with the scalpt 3-window coupe in the garage .. the garage is finally progressing again , that needs a ton of work and detail still , need t waether teh bricks and make a nice floor (this one is just painted temporary)

thnx guys :) !


today i started to change the top of the engine , found a part in my partsbox (dont know what it was for)and cut out this section
then started to drill holes in the top

69638_263825410417043_355906831_n.jpg

made a fuelline froma guitar snare

307357_263825423750375_1292830989_n.jpg

fited the new stacks and test fitted a brass tube

421849_263825430417041_1303200501_n.jpg

285757_263825453750372_120759746_n.jpg

then used the top with rounden flat surface , not sure if i have to use these or just the straight tubes , i want to try to file the straight tube in a slash cut

537038_263825467083704_1942018822_n.jpg

exhaust tips from brass i thought this fitted the theme and looks of all the speedholes

24303_263825497083701_804636935_n.jpg

then sprayed the engine in alu spray , will get more detail and some black and some chrome
the details i will add will be separate made pieces
