Bryan, yes great work.

 

Here's one that Marcelle did on a Chip Foose design.

Open the photo album for the car...the entire build is there.

Marcelle is one of the very elite fabricators out there.

 

Observe how perfectly the hood sides flow through the doors on to the quarter panels.

Fantastic work!

I'm still saving up my lunch money for a tig unit.

Continuing my research as to what's out there for a unit, that I can justify the cost, for a strictly hobby shop application.

I did check out a 110 volt Miller unit at a local supply store & it's well over $1,000...can't hack that cost for what I'm doing.

At this point the unit sold by Eastwood, that I linked to on page 1 or 2 of this thread, still seems to be offering the most bang for the buck, while offering the features I want for aluminum work.

 

Here's a vid of a guy welding aluminum coke cans.

Haven't measured the thickness of a coke can, but it's quite a bit thinner than the 1/16" material on the frame or the .016 that I'll be using for body skins.

The top of the fender is in such constant change of shape as it moves, I added a few more lines to my grid to more closely monitor the shape as it's transferred to the bucks.

 

Laid out a center line, making sure the fender will fit in the area of the buck & marked the references for the grid lines.

All of my cross templates are drawn but not cut & fitted yet.

 

Anticipating beginning to shape the buck, because I'm really wanting to start bending some metal & getting a feel for how this is all going to come around.

Thanks, Bill.

Just moving slow in the beginning...make sure I think it all through so I can realize a viable result at the end of it.

Met a guy recently who shared some pics of a 1:8 34 buck he did.

I asked him & he said it would be ok if I shared them here.

Very cool!

Thanks, Ira, I appreciate that.

 

Tonights the monthly kc slammers meeting, so think I'll cruise on up & hang with them for a couple of hours.

Taking a couple of things for the show & tell portion of the evening.

Should be a good time.  :)

Perhaps a little premature, but I'm thinking about the flathead engine for this.

With the pains I'm taking to make the frame & body "spot on", I know myself well enough to admit to myself that I'm going to have to go max effort on it.

After viewing the engines of a couple of builders on this site & elsewhere, I have no choice but to begin to plan for a lathe & mill for my shop & an education so that I can effectively & intellegently use them.

...stuff like how to produce a perfect 1:8 scale stromberg 97 or rather 3 of them, etc.

Last night at the club meeting, the same guy who sold me my kit I"m using for reference, brought this & told me to take it for taking templates.

Sooo, I may be back to building a coupe...very nice detail around the windows, etc.

Thanks, Eric, very cool of you!  B)

Just saw this thread for the first time and all I can say is a big WOW. Pure mad skills at work here. :)

Thanks, Mike.

You may be right about the mad part.

My wife seems to think so as well.

 

Bill Davis turned me on to this page.

Videos of seminars at GSL from several different years.

 

http://www.gslchampi...ry/library.html

 

 

Since I'm scratch building in a large scale, this one is of particular interest to me.

He deals with conceptualizing, planning, initating & following through on a scratch built project.

It was encouraging to me to realize that my thought process has been similar to the way he approaches things.

This represents what I want on this build for wheels/tires.

Want to build them out of metal to follow through with the materials used on the rest of the project.

I've searched every modeling forum I can find & google for info on scale wires in metal with not much success.

If anyone has a link to info/vids on this I would be most appreciative.

kennb here on the forum has a tutorial in the tips section on how to build and use a lacing jig to make your own wire wheels. His results look great. Might be something you can use.
