The secret is out!...I'm BATMAN!

09 October 2013 - 07:55 AM

For all you guys local to the Parkersburg W.Va./Marrietta Ohio area, This October 19th I will be appearing at a local charity event for the Make-A-Wish foundation. I will be appearing with the 1966 Batmobile. I hope everyone nearby who can afford the trip can come by and help us make this benefit a success for Make-A-Wish. Feel free to ask any questions, here's our flier...

The only caveat is, we haven't been able to lock down a searchlight yet so there may not be one. We've also added a local General Lee replica and possibly Roscoe's cruiser.

My hope here is that someone is doing a sheet of keyways for 1/25-1/24th scale cars. Or am I going to have to just pick a detail sheet that happens to have them?


3D printing, is a Star Trek Transporter" far behind?

Here's what I'm proposing. How far into the future do you think we are from placing an item in a scanner and e-mailing it to another scanner which prints it in 3D? Somewhat like a three dimensional fax machine. Does this not seem like a logical next step?


Stuck for details on a MOPAR build.

21 August 2013 - 08:33 AM

I've recently gotten back to a long time project and I am having some issues over the firewall/cowl panel. This particular car, a 1977 Dodge Monaco (2 door) was built on the same platform as the 1971-74 Chargers. Here's the rub- Although the AMT Charger and the MPC Monaco have the same length rockers and same size wheel wells, the Monaco's wheelbase was two inches shorter. I want to make it so the Charger chassis goes under the Monaco for details sake, but the Charger engine bay is about four or six scale inches narrower and the inner wells are different.

 

  The question is not whether I can make it fit, but rather how do I make it fit in the Monaco, change the wells and still have it fit the chassis? OR- is there another chassis/firewall setup that would work better?

 

Here's a couple pictures to illustrate
