The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online. Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.
My intent for this post was to try and look for intake to resemble an "Indy Cylinder Hi-rise" for the Revell 440 Dart motor. I'm not sure where Ron got his measurements from, I really never asked, I just saw that he had one on his site, and inquired about it. When I spoke with him he said he wasn't making any custom parts, but he had one in 1/25 scale. I really assumed it was based on the Revell Mr. Norm's Dart, in hindsight I should have asked what it was designed for. If your willing to try and make one to fit this, I will certainly supply you with a whole motor for measurements to ensure a perfect fit. Your work is equally impressive, and would open up a whole new avenue for us Mopar fans.
Frank, Happy to help Frank! not much out there in the aftermarket world in terms of performance parts for the B/RB block in 1/25 sale. Now we just need some fender well headers, and some Indy Cylinder valve covers! Chris
I spoke with Ron today via email, and amazingly enough, he has one dead on with what I'm looking for. here's the link to it. https://www.shapeways.com/product/DYA97J5KS/440block-4bb-single-intake-1-25 it also comes with a windage tray cover. It is a little expensive but its 3D printed. Frank I'd love to see what you come up with when your done modifying it.
Thanks Rick! the paint I used was some pre-thinned stuff I bought from slixx many years ago called "Blue Blood." I actually bought it for the Reher Morrison pro stock. Its very close to Tamiya TS-49, just a bit darker. Thanks for the additional pictures GTX, I've never seen the car in just red. I plan to do the red and gold car, with chrome reverse wheels.
Quick update, Got the first two coats of red on the body and interior. Its not Roman Red but its close, the florescent light makes it look lighter than what it really is. Will wet sand this tomorrow and apply one more coat of red, then paint the inner fender wells semi gloss black. Decided to stay with the original motor due to exhaust fitment. The kit is coming along nicely but the flash is annoying, has anyone noticed this? The new Torq Thrust wheels in this kit are awesomely done, but they not correct for the building the super stock version according to the pictures. more to follow....
