Nice save. Never fun when a build has an unexpected surprise. But it feels good when you can work around a problem.

 

Thanx Bob. It feels good to come up with a solution that won't look like it wasn't designed that way.

 

 

looking good Joe, guessing I'm gonna have the same fun when I start my Goeske Roadrunner next year. Hey at least the cockpit assembly is easily enough moved in these Polar lights kits, imagine if it was a Revell chassis :),

 

Thank You Brett. I do love the fact that the engine and interior tin become one piece that you can slide forward to fit any set up. Gotta get me more of these PL kits. I can make almost any body work with it now. The only trick I know with the Revell chassis is how to correct the stance with the rear axle mount.

 

Next up is the interior, Made a nifty little throttle pedal set up today using the kit pedal with a photo etch pedal. It also has a toe hook and the start of the throttle linkage.

You want more Bob? Try this on for size.

 

I've finished the mods to correct EVERYTHING concerning tin / engine / stance / global warming / world peace. Yeah, it feels that good.

 

Enjoy the pics. I do.......

Praise be to the Gods of Plastique and Resin. I've started the fixes and I don't have to do that major roof mod I was considering.

 

Engine is moved forward with new mounts and a new mount for the oil filters also.

 

Fuel pump is installed and set as far back as possible without hitting pulleys.

 

The final length of the tin extension will be determined once the engine is in it's final position. Still some figetting to do.

 

The last mod will be filling in the gap between the interior pan and the rear suspension.

 

Now we ARE having fun.

On my Nicholson Cyclone I ended up moving the interior pan and engine forward a bit. It put the motor closer to the windshield and brought the roll cage inside of the rear window.
Of course, that required a longer driveshaft, cramped the fuel tank,fuel pump and steering shaft......lol.
It's all part of the "fun"!
Keep at it, you'll find something that works for you!

 

I considered the longer driveshaft and the crampage of the pump to tank ratio. Did not figure on the steering shaft. Thanks for the heads up Jeff.

You said the fun starts WHEN????
