Yes. My ambitions get the best of me too often in ALL of my hobbies.. not just this one. But this one does get me good. lol I will probably take a break after my Crusher Camaro is done. I've tried lots of new things on it and also driven myself crazy with it. I might just do a basic kit, or take a break in general. I also have 2 commission builds I need to finish too... so maybe those? I'm not sure. I have about 175 unbuilt kits and sometimes that seems like a burden. If I build one a month (which is my average) it will take me at least 15 years to finish them all... so I have to force myself to get moving!! And that's not counting all the rebuilders I have waiting in boxes!!
Small update... painted the engine/trans/blower/manifold and also scratchbuilt the massive scoop. Plus a few more odds and ends. I've pretty much called it on polishing the body. I have a few small runs that I just can't do anything more with, and without stripping the body (which I dont want to do) there's no fixing them. So I'll live with it. took this mock up shot a while back before NNL, can't remember why I took the picture...
Some mock up shots of the scoop
Did some minor tweaking and squaring up of the scoop and then made it permanent. Also covered it with BMF. Hoping some clearcoat will level out the look of it a bit since I had to use multiple pieces of BMF.
As you'll also noticed I blackwashed the entire engine. When the guys from Roadkill yanked this thing in favor of the LS, it was a greasy mess! Also, I installed the MSD box on the firewall just like the 1:1 car, then amused myself with a mock up.
If you look closely, you will see I cut the clutch pedal off of this thing, and then I split the clutch and brake pedals and glued them together to create an automatic brake pedal. Not perfect but it looks ok for something that you'll likely not be able to see once its assembled. Also put the rachet shifter in the console too and assembled the interior.
I'm tempted to finish the roll cage as the 1:1 car has door bars, but I dont think I have the room on this kit. But that's it for now. More to come!
Glad to hear from you. I was worried when you hadn't been on here to see my message with the tracking info... then it not get delivered. Glad you are able to at least track it down. Good luck with the p/o.
He hasn't been on in a week. I sent him a package and I fear he hasn't seen my messages with the tracking info. The package I sent him wasn't delivered successfully and was sent back to the post office and I'm hoping he knows this before something happens and he's not able to retrieve it.
