  1. Thanks for the motorvation Doctor😝 I've got back into the build, it had sat while I did some other stuff. Hopefully an update soon Jim
  2. Thanks so much David, I got it back out again after Charlie motivated me, I'll have more updates soon Jim
  3. Thanks Charlie, I cheated a little, so to speak by doing an unspoked wheel on this one. I really need to get back into this build. Jim
  4. Looks great Charlie, I do a few wheels in the mill, it takes a lot longer than people think. Jim
  5. Underneath, no fuel in cabin.
  6. Thanks Ian! I'll get back into it shortly. Jim
  7. Looking great Ian. An interesting very personal project. I need closer pics though, my eyes are old. Keep into it Jim
  8. Sorry mate if I was vague, I assumed you would already know about it. When the Revell deal folded up, Atlantis models acquired the molds for the 1.25 and 1.16 Dragsters and Funny cars. They have recently been been looking at the viability of releasing a Vega funny car kit in 1.16 and approached Chuck to do the decal design. Some other guys are doing tyre samples. There is talk about a chassis kit also. There's a stack more to it but everything I've heard is 2nd, 3rd and 4th hand information so could all be hot air. I'll just wait and see. Jim
  9. Thanks Dragcarz! I appreciate your kind words, been working a fair bit so modelling time has suffered a tad. Hey Chris! Thanks for checking it out and your positive words. I'm a big fan of 1.16 scale builds. The Atlantis gossip in the last week was interesting, I hope it develops further. I followed your army vega build and I quite often go back to see how you did certain things. It still impresses me and I think I notice something new each time. This one wont be may be as fine in the detail but together a little quicker than your build I hope! Jim
  10. Thanks Tim. I haven't been back to the bench in days but I'm busting to get back into it. Jim
  11. I've been still doing a bit on this build but it seems slow the last couple days. Refined the barrel valve, ran cables for fuel shut off and parachute. Mounted the brake cylinder and ran a steel line from .020" wire. Ran port nozzle hoses and port distribution block. Just used the kit black hose which does look a touch large but I'm not redoing anything on this one. Thanks for looking Jim
