    Electricial and interior detail in pro stock's
    I wish that somebody can help me with Some reference photos or explaining/ or drawings of the electricity that are placed in a Pro Stock drag car. It is often mounted on a plate under the dash or the floor.
    How it is wired and also tip's of where i could find these detail to buy.
    Pictures of the boxes or bottles are welcome. If no aftermarket is available i have to scratch the parts.
    I have opened the Doors for Some of My drag car builds and i think it is important to show Some detail there.

    Wonderful work.!
    Every part is so Clean,
    It is a work of art,
    I must ask you a funny question,
    when you are done with a build at this level,that is the highest level i can Think of!
    The next model you start building,is that just a "box stock" or something a Little more easy to build.?or do you get to Another super detailed build right away.?
    Myself,when i have build something super detailed at my level, (way lower than yours) i need to relax with a easy build.

    Thanks for the inspiration, i love this.

    Modern funny cars kits
    Hi ,
    Can anyone tell me if it is the same frames and engines in the modern funny cars from revell?
    If you go back 20 years,alots of funny cars have been realesed from revell. Do they use the same tool for all or does Any kit have Other parts?

    The New mongoose 57 chevy for example,is that the same chassie as the Other Latest realesed funny cars?
    And how about Monograms 1/24 funny cars,are they good for building and update with extra detail.

    The level of this build,is almost beyond what you can imagine and think of as a modelbuilder.
    The precision in every detail and also the knowledge of reference to assembly the chassie.
    To what it is. In my eyes: this is art.
    Thank you so much for the inspiration this is for me.

    CCM 2014 April 5th. Stockholm Sweden
    Hi Guys.

    I was on a Modelcar contest in Stockholm,Sweden on April 5th.
    I will post some of the build here in this topic.
    If you want to see more you can click on the link.


    if that does´nt work you can visit www.fotki.com and search for member "froudi" in the search button.

    Hope that you enjoy this,

    This is a Mike Gradis 1/8 scale resin body. It has been chopped.

    This Corvette is a slammer,just the body and wheels and blackpainted windows,Pretty cool,i´ll think.

    There is more to see in my fotki album and many more contests from other years here in Sweden.

    So great,thanks for the inspiration.
    I´m interested in future picture´s,when you are at the electricial detail stage of this build.

    When you make details on your lathe,how do you do when it comes to make radius curves, if you know what i mean.

    Super Clean work,


  11. LeadFred added a post in a topic Datsun 510 Pro Stock project (Dodge Colt)   

    Hi guys,
    Thanks for all nice comments.
    I have not been looking at a model since 4-5 weeks ago ,because a sad thing in my family happen,
    But i start to come back to normal life again,and i will be posting some updates for this 510 Datsun.

    I can tell you that i have change the two frame rails from the kit to a tube frame.
    I´ll think that will be much better and easier to install the engine with the headers.
    and also the front suspension too.
    I will post some pictures later when i have done a little bit more.

    Thanks Guys for waiting................to be continued.

    Does anybody know if the new AMT 1960 Ranchero "Ohio George" have separated lenses for the headlight in the kit,or if it is like the 61 issue."molded in chrome"????

  13. LeadFred added a post in a topic chassic buildup?   

    If you are going to build a chassie from scratch with front and rear suspension i would say that a jig is a must.
    Because it is very difficult to get the wheels in the right place, i have a topic in this forum called "Duster pro mod build" that you could look at.
    It is not so much yet but you can see a little about it.
    For the first you should mock-up the body height from ground and then the wheelbase you want.
    Then you have to measure a lot inside the body and start to build up all the distance between ground and the lowest part.
    You can use some clay to fix the wheels and some rods between the body and the ground.
    then you could lift off the body and start to take measurments of the wheelbase mock-up And ofcourse do a drawing of your chassie if you want.

    I´ll hope you understand my explanation,take a look at my topic and i´ll think you know where you start the operation.

  14. LeadFred added a post in a topic Jo-Han´s Mercury Comet Pro Stock   

    Thank you all,
    It is so cold here in Sweden right now, so your feedback warm me up very much.
    I hope that the Comet will inspire you,
    Many of you liked the paint and i can tell you,that it is done with a Volkswagen Yellow metallic Spray can and also the red faded paint in the rear of the body is Red transparent Taillight paint from a spray can.
    Before i did the faded area i hold my breath,because it can very easily get paint on areas that you dont wont it on.
    I got lucky because i hit the paint exactly where i wanted.(that was luck)
    It is more control if you do it with an airbrush.But in this build it is done with a spray can.
    I can also tell you,that,
    When i got the body painted it all went down in the kit box and was there for two years before i went on with it again.
    thats always a problem,i have to much ideas of what i want to build.
