  1. 1-8 '69 nitrous pro mod camaro

    On hold for 3.5 yrs, do you ever get the itch to start working on this 1/8 ??
  2. 1/8 TDR Nova

    Ran into some post processor issues last week but I think I have that portion figured out and solved now. Next will be getting used to the cnc controller and getting the G-code loaded into the machine to try and cut something. Amazing I haven't ran cnc in 25 years and it's just like riding a bike still
  3. 1/8 TDR Nova

    Messing around this morning with my new 5-axis software. This particular NC program... the work piece spins on the x-axis while the cutter stays on Y zero and bumps up and down on the Z axis to the part shape. It makes its way from the front of the block to the rear of the block. I see it crashes into the timing chain area so I need to alter that. Might try some ren board and see how it cuts one of these days.
  4. 1/8 TDR Nova

    The starter may be a tad small but I'm only concerned with the block first. My 1:1 isn't getting done as quickly as I had hoped at the chassis shop so I may see what I can do with this on vacation time, doesn't sound like my wife will be dragging me off anywhere and my projects are done for the most part. Pretty sure I have everything I need for materials,.....kicking myself in the rear...
  5. 1/8 TDR Nova

    Ok.... I found some time as work was slow today. Goal was to wrap up this engine block. I think I like it now. Any input guys?? Thinking about 3D printing it first before I cut it in ren wood.
  6. 1/8 TDR Nova

    Deck is DONE! I'm on a mission lately. Excited to get these projects out of the way so I can work on this TDR Nova this fall.
  7. 1/8 TDR Nova

    Dog fence is done. Deck is 80% there, hope to wrap it up this weekend. Got side tracked and bought a 1955 Bel Air 1:1, loving this car!! Hope to get after this brass chassis in October looks like
  8. 1/8 TDR Nova

    No nothing at all. I expect work to slow down a bit so I may be able to work on the cad model for the engine. As far as the chassis I haven't touched it, still have a paper design to finish up then learn how to do brass as I've never done one, only styrene. Really busy in the summer months. Deck is half done, dog fence at the other house is half done and I have my 1:1 Malibu coming home in a few weeks as well, I'm spread thin. Come on snow right, LOL
  9. 1/8 TDR Nova

    Sorry guys nothing at all. I've been working 15-16 hr days for a couple of weeks. A magnesium plant had a thermal event here in Michigan and it's shut down Ford F-series truck production lines. A lot of dies here right now to repair and get back into production so I have zero personal life at the moment. I'll update when I can.
  10. 1/8 TDR Nova

    LOL, someone messaged me and said it's not correct. Ummmmmm, how could it NOT be correct, it's my own design, LOL!
  11. 1/8 TDR Nova

    Was able to get the MSD mag on it today
  12. 1/8 TDR Nova

    LOL. I have to get the sides of the block down a bit as well the center line of the crank isn't correct. Fun Fun !
  13. 1/8 TDR Nova

    I had some time today, started trying to get the front looking correct. Many thanks to Ron Olsen for letting me get some measurements of a 1/4 scale hemi he 3D printed for me, that along with some images of the internet and I still need to get the distributor mag hole put on it. A lot to do yet but it's starting to look like something.
  14. 1/8 TDR Nova

    Blocked in some heads, header flanges, valve covers......alot to go, thought I'd share. I'll ax the main bearing caps, don't need those
  15. 1/8 TDR Nova

    Pretty slow at work right now so I started an alum engine design. I started with a free engine file I found on-line, then I'm modifying it to my liking, sorta referencing the 481X block as I like it's appearance more than the AJ block. I'm having difficulty finding dimensions for the Hemi front side of the engine I'd like to put on this, any help would be appreciated to save me an hour drive to go measure one out, LOL. When it done it'll be bbc bellhousing pattern, Hemi front, custom sides see attached pictures I have roughed in & hemi style heads. P.S. I'm using UG NX11.0 software if anyone is curious.
