This is another I am working on. It's on the engine and trans assembly so far, but since this turned into a model in itself i figured it would be nice to show.
This is the kit that got me back into modelling after I stopped at about 10 years old. All my models were glue bombs and I specifically remember one Countach I put together while eating skittles, so the completed product was quite colorful.
I was trying to find an auto related hobby to replace RC cars as it as becoming way too expensive. I remembered my dad had a couple of old large scale models he saved. I dug out the 57 Chevy and it was the glue bomb from hell. I still have the kit, but i have bought couple more since then.
Here is the Model Car Garage photo etch kit I am going to use
I am also using Scale Hardware and Micro Fasteners to replace pretty much every bolt on the car. I didn't realize how much this was going to cost until I was knee deep, so this is a long term build. All holes were drilled through the center of each molded bolt, then the molded piece shaved off and surfaces sanded flat.
There are over 120 actual fastners on the engine and trans assembly alone, and about 60 hours so far. I'm stuck on the alternator, I'm trying to figure out how to make a metal fan blade because the molded in one isn't going to cut it.
