well it has been awhile since i posted a build. been busy working and working on the new 1:1 . but i found a bit of time to do a simple curbside of my 1:1 . the intercooler is scratch built and the wheels are volk te37's .
heres a little something i built over the weekend . i started this friday night and finished it up today. theres a few small details i want to still do like lug nut and a couple interior details. hope you enjoy . let me know what you think
heres a skyline that ive been working on for a few weeks now . i opened up the doors and made a roll cage , flocked the carpet and made some floor mats and racing harnesses . i also made the door panels look alot better than they do stock . i scratch built the intercooler and turbo and cut off the plastic fuel rail and made a new one from solder and made some fuel injectors. the color is candy red over champagne gold. there wheels are 18" model scientists work meister s1"S . i also made dome lug nuts for them .
a couple members asked if i could do a tutorial on how to make my intercoolers.
these are the tools and materials i use knife ,cutters, needle nose tweesers, styrene (2 different types 1 is metal siding .040 spacing and the other is just regular flat styrene) bondo ,red spot putty, tamiya 2 part epoxy putty, solder, aluminum tubing ,beading wire ,crazy glue sand paper and a ruler
first thing i do is cut the metal siding to the size you want the fmic core to be( cut 4 pieces)
glue the 4 pieces together and cut a small strip of the flat styrene the cut it into 4 pieces (there for the end tanks) and 2 pieces of solder for the inlets
then i use the crazy glue to put the one side of the end tanks on and the solder for the inlets
the using the knife i cut the the one side of the end tanks to the size and shape i want
