Thanks for the comments and input ... I really appreciate it.. Phil.. I was thinking the same thing you suggested... I think I am going to use the hat from the flashpoint blower set up on the ross gibson blower... the blower from flashpoint is bigger/taller than the ross gibson one.. I think once I sand it and clean it up it will be o.k.... 

 

I got the chassis painted and cleared... and I have been working on the gaps on the doors... I added some thin stips of styrene to the front of the doors to tighten up the gaps there.... I think it looks better know... here's a few pics... thanks for looking and comments welcome...

Hi Tyrone:

 

I see you also use the DM blower detailing kit (at least I think that's where the blower tie-down plate came from). I just discovered them and I've stocked on a couple. You've also replaced the Pegasus rear wheels, which have been discontinued or out of stock for quite a while, although the fronts are available. If you ever decide to sell a set of rear wheels/tires, please PM me.

 

The build is looking great; I hate to ask for secrets, it's kind of like asking DaVinci how he painted Mona Lisa LOL. I would like to know how you create such remarkably accurate MSD mags in 1/25. I've seen the preassembled 1/16 scale ones in pairs, but never preassembled in 1/25. Any tips would be helpful. I currently use M.A.D. mags and cut the standard bottom off. From there I replace it with same size styrene. One thing I can't imitate is the MSD circle cover over where the wires exit the mag.

 

I wanted to ask you - I find the instructions almost worthless from Ross Gibson; it looks like my kit includes a clutch shield and part of a Lenco, but no details on how they go together? I intend to cut and install a thin piece of styrene sheet undernearth the chassis so hopefully the this won't be visible.

 

Keep up the great work as it motivates a lot of us still learning. With the help of another member, I've got a primer now for fashioning my own pro type rollcage on a Revell two piece chassis from the '55 Sportsman Chevy kit. Now by pre-measuring and adjusting, I can select a similar sized body and fit the wheelbase accordingly.  It's a start towards the ultimate goal of really building a full chassis by hand!

 

Sorry for so many questions, but I hope you can answer a couple. Copying is the most sincere form of flattery!

 

Mitch

Thanks alot Mitch.. I'm glad you like my work... I took the pegasus wheels off when I got these from Micro Nitro... Jim really makes some nice wheels... 

 

As far as the magneto... It's the one that came with the Ross Gibson engine I had to do a lot of clean up to it,,, but I think it turned out o.k...It comes with the cap piece your talking about that goes on top of the wires....

 

I think thats the transmission your talking about.... It comes in 3 pieces... top.. bottom.. and the rear section.... that attaches to the bell housing...

 

Mitch... the prosportsman kits are a great way to get your feet wet with building cages... that's the way I got started, before I got up the courage to try a scratch built  cage.....

 

here's a few pics of a little more I got done today.....
