We paid tribute to all of our fallen servicemen and there family's this weekend at all of our church services. Thank you all that has served this great country and has given there life for this great country.
Chris bottle is amazing as is the whole build ! Just to give you a heads up or club is on again this year for our second show at the NHRA Museum in Pomona and it would be sweet if your able to attend the show with this master piece.
Well I have pretty much finished scratch building the exhaust except for shortening the bottoms of the outlets so they are all even then i will get the bottom outlets glued in place then shoot some paint on them. I guess I'm satisfied with how they came but I always think to myself that i could have done a better job building them but I will leave them they way they are for now and move on to the next part of the build. To answer your question about the wheels Darrell I purchased the wheels probably about ten years ago from my local Hobby Shop and they where made by So Real which I think Pegasus maybe producing them now.
Was able to get in a little bench time in today and also started another project to hopefully get both these builds done for the Show at the NHRA Museum that our Club will be sponsoring in Nov which is the Need For Sped 2.Was able to get the exhaust headers finished today with the exception of not getting them shot with some primer and I started the body work on the Tom Daniels 55 Chevy Gasser Badman and It will be built pretty much stock except for the body color and interior color.
I have scratch built another set of front brake calipers since I was not satisfied with the first set that I scratch built and the second set are finished with paint and I also started scratch building the exhaust headers since the kit ones seemed to me that they where a little off in scale.
Sorry no pictures but I must say this event gets better and better every year that I attend and its especially nice only having to drive a little over a mile to the event. I met a few more modelers this year which I hope its ok to call new friends and also was able to pick Johns (Teresi) brain on the Funny Car I'm attempting to build and also it's always good to see Art (Laski) to stock up on Pro Tech parts.
