Tim, your model is just amazing and I personally have never seen anything like it.

 

If you don't mind, i have a couple of questions;

1. Where did you get the material for the frame?  Hobby Shop, or from a 1:1 workplace?  Electric or flame soldered?

2. Front suspension, I've seen nice coil over shocks on websites, but I haven't found any A arms or anything that compares to what you show here.  Did you fabricate all of the pieces?

 

Thanks for showing us this masterpiece!  I will keep this as my A-Number One reference.

 

Michael

Hi Mike,  Thanks for your positive comments AND your note on the driveshaft. I missed that one and will note it on future builds. I've posted some more pics from my Fotki account.  I have over 300 pics of the car in various stages of construction.  Please visit and let me know what you think.. I did pick some added photos for you to check out.  There is one of my "handcrafted"  :)  aluminum rear hub carriers.  Just my trusty dremel & files. Cheers,Tim

Wow, amazing work. I've accumulated some brass and soldering equipment wanting to jump into brass fabrication. Your work is very inspiring. What size tube did you use for the framerails? Also,what type solder do you prefer to use?

I'd like to reply to the following:

 

Gilbert...thanks for your comments and I'll post some pics of my 66' Mustang Fastback that is under glass later this week. It was my first build after 40 years away from building and it was a tough build in so many ways as I had so much to learn again.

 

Michael:

a. The brass/aluminum were purchased at Kranzels Hobby Shop in Lemoyne, Pa. and also my local hardware store. Hard to find sizes/materials were purchased from Caboose Hobbies. 

b. I use tix silver solder and an American Beauty resistance soldering setup. It's great for the tiny / hard to solder areas. 

c. The a arms were fabbed from brass tube and the "rocker arms" were fabbed from some misc. MAS photoetch pieces.

 

Tom: Tix solder and the main framerails are tapered 3/16th" brass rectangular tube which I had to shape and then fill in with solder at the ends of framerails.  The drilled support rails are the same.  Various sizes were used to do crossmembers etc. The front shock / rocker towers are 3/16th SOLID brass that were shaped by hand and then drilled / cut to accept the PE rockers.

 

Hope this helps. Tim

thanx for the extra pix, just seeing how a scratch built part starts out will inspire others to attempt crafting their own parts.

Truly spectacular! If I hadn't recognized the tyres I'd have sworn this was 1.12th or bigger. Fantastic!

 

My first thought was " How did he get those tires to fit a 1/12 scale model ? " . :D

Very impressive work ,  I'll be studying this one for a looong time !

Excellent work Tim! I really like the chassis and the front and rear end setups! You obviously planned them quite well! My only misgiving is I would have rather seen a Ford body behind that beautiful grille and engine.
