I hadn't seen this build until now, but wow! That's fun!  Very detailed scratch build on a unique car.

Hi,

 

Lovin' the build! Your scratchbuilding skills are amazing.

 

Something has been tickling at the back of my brain and I think I just figured out what: the body doesn't look right (sorry).

 

When I look at your thumbnail in your very first post, I see two things:

- The mouth lines meet at a point above the center of the circle.

- If you drew a perpendicular line from the upper lip through the eye, the eye looks to fall about halfway between the upper lip and the lines intersection with the curve of the roof.  

 

On your body, the mouth hinges at the circle center and the eye is skewed toward the mouth line.

Yeah Martin thanks for your respons,

 

I know it has some error's (i found them out after i was on my way) i think it's not a big problem because the work is to much to change it.

 

I'm also planning to make a pac rod 1/8 then i will use what i have learn on this one (second one's Always better than first  :rolleyes:  ).

Hi there,
The rod has some color now.

spuitplamuur_zps9a1205b1.jpg

First i put some base then i found out the body wasn't that smoot after all (see arrows).
So put some more plaster and start sanding :(

color2_zps8968c620.jpg

Then finally the color :)

Now i can start making the inside and work on the decals.

Ok you guys behave and keep on building.

See you next update.

Gr
Dirk

That is a really cool build, Dirk. By the way, it wasn't until I saw your signature line that I realized you and I have the same name. Cool!

So hello guys and girls,

Ok it's been a while since the last update had some more importent things to do. (sorry to kept you waiting)

This week i did a lot of work to the rod i finished the Chassis (only the drive shafts).

Fit the body and busy working on the interior.

well here some photo's.

wheels_zpsd8599c97.jpg
Painted the wheels with Alclad chroom.

frontwheel1_zpsc07e9b0a.jpg
Put some Knock off spinners (like the real one had).

chassiscomp5_zpsbca2080b.jpg
Mounted the engine and wheels (like i said the axels still has to be fit).

P9230001_zps10aa1a88.jpg
Here i,m preparing the louvres for the side intake, this are decals made out of resin ,stranges but worked fine.

P9240003_zps65b84de5.jpg
And the result.

P9270012_zps03d1af59.jpg
I saw the rod had a ghost at the back carpet, so i first draw it then filled it.

inside1_zps36013c89.jpg
The interior i used vilt i don't know how you call it in english but it worked out great.

984da0f5-2894-42b8-bec9-e7b3a4a774be_zps
This is how far it is at the moment.

Still some small details and placing the aluminium plate's and lights then it should be finished.

I have a small suprise here for the Rod will show you when it's ready.

See you

Gr
Dirk

WOW, great scratchbuild project. Did you make your own rod ends or are they from an aftermarket source? I am intrigued by the blower pulleys also. This is one cool project. I like your style, Dirk!!!

Hi Greg,

 

The rod are just small pipes the rod end,s  are aftermarket  (stil saving for a lathe so i can make them my self)

The pulley's are made from jewelers screwdrivers they have those ribs and they are just right.

Dirk
