Tyrone after looking at your engine, I think I've got the wrong heads in my Ross Gibson kit. I'm going to have to substitute for something bigger.

Is building models your job? In another post (63 promod vette) you state you can't paint because of the weather, so you start another project!! I'll be doggone if I could even do in a year what you do in a day...I must have A.D.D. or something. Too many distractions (work), but I must say that you do some really fine work...I can only dream. Keep up the great scale model work...I don't know how you do it. We just got 21" of snow along with sleet and freezing rain up here and it takes me hours to clear it off my drive and walks, so much for model time.

Tyrone:

 

You said you were open to comments and q's, so I hope you can/will respond. I've seen a lot of your work here, along with Brent and been really amazed. I'm still at the "build from the box" and "detail with Teds" stage. Do you ever intend to make and sell blueprints or step by step instructions on how to measure length/width/heigth/wheelbase required for the styrene chassis build?

 

On a related note, I intend to use one of the RGE pro mod engines in an alteration to the original Revell Soff Seal '57 Chevy as I'm a little burnt out on twin carb pro street/pro sportsman builds right now. What's your opinion on the craftsmanship of the engine kits? I kinda talked Ted (or reassured him) that the upper end pro mod types would sell. I intend on using that shrink wrap type carbon fibre on my blower hat, at least if I don't screw it up and as much detailing as I can muster.

 

Thanks for your time, Mitch

Rrrrrumps.... I have a full time job... I actually work 10 1/2 hours a day.. so when I get home if I'm able to spend a hour or two at the bench to kinda unwind I really enjoy it.. when time permits.. I usually end up with more than one project going at once because I'll have so many ideas in my head that I have to start something.. It also helps me not to get burned out on one specific build.... thanks for checking in and I'm glad you like my work..... :D

 

Mitch.... thanks for the kind words ... as far as selling blue prints... the way I build is a little different from most... I don't use a chassis jig.. I start with the floor and work my way up from there... they are pretty close imop... but nowhere near perfect...... as for the RG engines they are pretty nice, you have to sand the pieces that will be glued together with some coarse sandpaper on a flat surface to ensure that they are nice and flat... hope this helps.. any questions please ask....

Alright fellas... I've been making some progress on this one... I got the drivers floor area done.. I went ahead and opened the doors.. and I got the rear end mocked up in the car .. I used 4 link mounts from dirt modeler, and the 4 link bars and the rear coil overs are from futturattraction... I also got the top part of the firewall finshed up... thanks for looking and comments welcome...
