458 Italia (Revell)

15 February 2015 - 09:06 AM

I wasn't going to post this because I made some boo boos but I decided to post  it with lessons learned.

The Revell 458 has some good and bad things.  I like the interior detail but the fit on a lot of the parts is left wanting as you will see.  I had to do a lot of trimming to make the windshield fit.  The rear hatch was warped but Revell replaced it (thanks guys/gals).  The hatch doesn't fit flush though.  I fabricated the spoiler and exhaust tips  I messed up the front window masking and the rear window tint tho.  Otherwise I like the results.

 

This was my inspiration:

This is my work:

Oil system plumbing

12 October 2014 - 11:25 AM

Hey All, I'm working on a Ross Gibson engine and I'm trying to figure out the oil system plumbing.  I've studied a lot of photos and diagrams and I think I have it.  Please check out the diagram and give me your input, thanks.

1957 Custom T-bird finally

This build took a long time because I wasn't as skilled as I thought I was.  But I learned along the way thanks to many of you.  My original hood scoop didn't survive the paint removing so I went with a more modern intake.  I hope you like it. It was a fun build but I'll stay away from customs for a while.
