Great stuff, and all this time I thought you were going to build a metal body   :huh: 

How will you prepare the surface for painting?  :lol:

Ognib, I haven't checked into this forum in a long time because of outside jobs. Having refreshed my memory of this model I have to ask,

with all due respect, have you completed a panel from the dozens of bucks you have made?

 I generally check and do the panels as I go.

Also in that "away time" I produced some piece with methods that might be of help. If you will look through this post and consider

the front axle construct and the method of doing the headers.




Again, this is only a "serving suggestion".  :)

jb, the salt and a portion of the mountains is a photo of Bonneville from the net. The car was photographed in sunlight on white paper with baking soda for the "salt" element.

I isolated the car and it's shadows from the shot and placed that element on a digitally altered background. There are about 8 pieces of sky to the 'moody' background from

the net. The camera was a $75 Kodak pocket camera and the software is "Painter5" which I've used since 1998. Harry P would have a handle on this trickery.... :)


No more 1/4 scale, I'm building 1/8 and .........what a change.


Thanks for comments jb and Scott.

No encore, I'm done and finished building this scale. So no more on this forum.

Here's the other car finished.











I want to thank the people who bothered to take the time to comment
