Thanks Jim, these are great.

Saw them in a match race against Don Gay's 66 or 67 GTO AWB (or funny car).

Thanks again for the help, maybe I can get back to work on it now.

Thank you so much for posting this.

This is my most fav car of that era. I saw it race near hear. Beautiful car.

Years ago, I started modifying a plastic kit to build this same model. Happy with the back but still miles away on the nose.

Yours is the best model of the Darkhorse 2 that I have seen. Love the frame.

I can not find any pics of the front axle setup and really don't enough to do it right.

Could you post pics without tilt nose to help me along?

Or link me to someting? Wish you had a build post, that would be so neat.

Great job, reakky.


In Topic: Compressor and airbrush driving me nuts!

My pressure gauge always shows a drop as soon as I start actually sparaying.

I always adjust the pressure by test spaying.

If it has been a long time, I test with water, set the pressure as I spary the water then run Laguer thinner thru everything.

When I am ready to spray the paint, I test spary and adjust the pressure if need be because the paint is thicker than the water, I will spray a few seconds to make sure the piant takes over and has washed out any left over thinner.

 

Now, if I could just quit jumping when the compressor kicks on and surprises me  as I spray...LOL.

Practice practice practice.WATER, THINNER, then PAINT.

 

Good luck.

Oh yes indeed. Looks like a really beautiful track.

Pulling for Nico R, myself.

I follow F1 and NHRA more than NASCAR anymore.
