  1. Thanks Tim! It was definitely a move in the right direction even though it was a giant pain in the rear to go back in a modify it all! I can't wait to print it and see how it comes out. I have some new precision model resin coming next week to give a try! With all these engine parts nearing the end it's going to be time to build soon! Paul
  2. I thought I was the only one.....😅
  3. played with the scoop some more! After several more hours of changes and fixes I am now going to leave it and get it ready for printing! I did leave the spacer alone instead of changing it. Changing it would require a new supercharger print as I'd have to change the flange at the supercharger to reflect what Matt Bohr had posted. Assembled with the supercharger and spacer.
  4. I had some time to fix the injector hat tonight. Looks much better I think. When mocked up with the old one it looked to wide. Still need to change the spacer to look more like Matt Bohr posted a while back. Paul
  5. Little bit of mock up using blu tack! Getting there! Need to locate some carbon fiber for the valve covers still. (Hence the black paint)
  6. Yes i know. I was referring to the 66 car is the one Roger and Rich built.
  7. That would be the 1966 car he built.
  8. We are! I've managed to get some paint on a few of the parts. I need to break out the lathe and get busy with the air servos and the adapter ring in-between the lenco cases. I may still machine the rear lid for the lenco but not sure yet. I will probably have the lench assembled this weekend.
  9. Thanks Dave! It's certainly getting there! I got involved with a instagram build off with this thing so I need to have the engine done in roughly 3 months time. Just want I needed to kick my arse in gear and get this done! A bit difficult working in the 5th wheel trailer whilst we look for a house but I'm making it work. Had to take the printer to work. Trailer too small to have it buzzing away with fumes and a wife and dog here. Update: Got the supercharger belt some what figured out! I am literally one tooth too long or 3 teeth to short to having an accurate belt! I need to change the length a bit so the teeth match up correctly but it's BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH close! How close? the mating portion of the belt is .01 too short! I have some dimensions from rcd so I will be redrawing the belt and going from there to make it correct. Paul
  10. New oil pan for dry sump set up! Got the dry sump pump just about done. I need to finish up the photo etch for the rear end then move onto the engine pieces as there is some parts that need to be photo etched instead of 3d printed. Engine program is moving along nicely at this point and am nearing the end of all the parts for it! (finally!) lol
  11. Time for the next logical step.... PHOTO ETCH! 😁
  12. as much as I love that little roadster of his, with or without correct class designation, someone seriously needs to build that 41! That thing is sweet! Paul
  13. Hmm, I didn't notice that but I didn't use the decals either so the sheet still sits complete in the parts box...
  14. They corrected the scale issues with it and is now supposedly 1/25
  15. Tim, nice job! I built one a while back but scratch built a chassis as I needed it longer to fit both engines (aka "the odd couple" dragster style) It's a fun little kit despite the few short comings you exprienced. I didn't have those problems since many of those parts I didn't use. I used Buick finned drums I casted in resin (62 buick wagon) and drilled out the center to fit over the axle. They fit nicely in the wheels. Paul
