looking real nice Tyrone, kind of out of your wheelhouse... a FORD?..... with a HEMI........ kidding. real nice as usual.

 

on a side note, you guys down south have been hammered this year with bad weather. has to bring things to a screeching halt. we have had 15+ days up here recording temps below zero. keep warm and keep building!!

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....

Thanks for replying Tyrone!  It motivates me to get info and tips from a pro!  My 1st attempt at innovation in 1:25 scale will be placing a newly purchased RGE/Sonny Leonard pro mod motor in between the frame rails of a Revell Soff Seal kit I just got at a really good price. I've built one Glidden based T-Bird prostock and a Shoebox Ford kit, so I want that blown pro mod feeling.

 

I also got a resin 1:25 Kobelco blower & 3 hole hat that resembles your build.. I hope to fashion a thin styrene lower intake/valley cover and then CA the blower/hat on top. I'll be using a BB blown engine off Ebay and some pics off Pro-Tech's site to get the plumbing close as possible. What vehicle to use is a choice between the Revell '55 Top Sportsman and a newly acquired (discontinued) Revell '87 Bob Glidden Championship kit, the one with the crew standing along with Bob and the car on the front. The kit was re-issued last October from what I hear, with a different cover picture and possibly different wheels. I bet a lot of purists would love to wring my neck messing with Glidden kit!

 

Thanks Tyrone and keep 'em coming!  BTW, Leah Pruett's turbocharged early Vette would be a challenging pro mod build from an engine standpoint!

Nice real life build going on here from the Precision folks; it doesn't look like the driver's area cage is as protective as Tyrone's builds though. It's gotta meet SFI specs after this much work, I'm sure. I wonder if it's true pro mod or maybe crazy 10.5 tire?

mitch, the fact you can't see the cage in this car is a testament to the care that was taken to build it. you are right. it is not built to run pro mod. the all steel rear body clip is a dead give away. with a 903 cu in. pat musi motor on 4 stages, you can bet it is an SFI approved design.  the car will be running in a class called Big Tire Outlaw. here's a peep of the hidden chassis.

Tyrone:  I'm not on your level to have many ques. other than figuring out how to figure out how to build a chassis :lol:  I'm just not sure what I want or how aggresive to go. It's just one of those things like driving by an accident. You don't want to look or know, but...  Comp1839 - check your PM about the above info!

 

I'm thinking when I've fullfilled my desire to shoehorn this creation of Ross' into the '57 Chevy and catch up on the three bodies that need painted for my kits already built, I want to start by purchasing a resin body I really like and taking it from there. Following your build pics here (and maybe a few PM's without annoying you), I'd like the basics for laying out the frame, how intricate to make a cage, designing the rear cage and how to install a 4 link using say, one of Scott Popham's Futurattraction 9" rear & related parts. Maybe that's chewing off too much and just keeping my yap shut and my eyes open with do!

 

I will have a long term project like yours in the works one day and when I do I'll post it here step by step as much as possible to help somebody out (as long as you help me correct my mistakes first!)  Peace out bro!

What's up fellas.... I've been working on this one too.. I'm still adding bars to the cage, I've got the front end upper strut mounts and lower mounts installed... gonna make my own lower control arms on this one and not rob them from the pro sportsman chassis...lol... I also got the doors hinged and hung too... I decided to jazz up the firewall on this one too... thanks for looking and comments welcome......
