          It's great to see you working on a new project. Your brass work is always a joy to watch. Your craftsmanship is in a

very elite group. I love that one image #12 of your amazing "Hot Rod Wrecker" off to the side of your new project. What a

garage you have.


          My regards.



In Topic: 71 Cuda, all aluminum hemi

     I want to personally thank you for sharing your tremendous talent of machining skills with the forum. From your machined engine to your working rack in pinion steering to your ability to machine by hand in such a small scale, is something unimaginable. This is indicated by the amount of views and comments to your post, 

    Watching you and reading books has helped me. I provided a source under links for raw material.


    Bill, you've inspired me to build a blown 426 Hemi engine from aluminum, mostly scratch. It came out well---using a dremel

files, a grinding wheel, and much patience.

             What a beautiful job you are doing. Adding the aluminum tubs and the soldering on the front axle.This adds a great addition of craftsmanship to your model. If I can be of any assistance on your soldering, please feel free to ask. I can't afford a Resistance Soldering Unit, but I have the next best thing a Hekko 900 Series. It works great, with the proper prep. of the soldering joints. And a great start you did on your engine

and body.


              Much continued success with your great topic.

Thanks for your comments Joe and Andy. The only motor tools I use are my Dremel and a Grinder. The rest is virtually by hand with my late dads vintage file set. Here is a pik. of my garage workspace.

My model cars are not judged buy the time it takes me to complete them, but my first intention was only to assist fellow

builders with this link.
