  1. Pro Mod -63 Corvette

    Small update on this one. Burnout! The Revell 1/24 scale top fuel/funnycar slicks was a little bit oversized for the 1/25 covette body. Thanks for looking! / Rick

    I knew about the fenders, but I didn´t want to put such small ugly fenders on this one. I also knew that an A/SR must have a passenger seat...but the disc brakes....hmm. Anyway, I will not rebuiltd that front suspention...trust me It´s a model...and I had a lot of fun building it. Thank u guys for all comments, I´m glad you like it!!! Thanks!!! / Rick

    Update. Here is some pics. of the last pieses. I made a new undercarrige for the seat, scratchbuilt from Evergreen rod. This one look better and more accurate. The steering wheel was stolen from Revells "Big John" 41 Willys kit. I masked the rim with Vallejos "Liquid mask" and then airbrushed the center with Alclad stailess steel. Tachometer decal from Slixx. Housing made from K&S alu tubing. The fire extinguisher. / Rick

  9. Pro Mod -63 Corvette

    Hi. Finaly some progress...and it feels fun to do some modeling again The rear axle were taken from an Revell Top fuel dragster. I choose this top loader because I needed a narrow axle to fit in the small Vette body. With some photoetch plates it turned out pretty good. On previous builds I used the steering gear from Revells pro stock/pro mod kits. This time I decided to scratchbuild my own steering gear, because the parts from the kits didn´t fit and didn´t look the way I wanted. The scratchbuilt fuelcell...made from Evergreen plasticard. A scratchbuilt breather tank with bracket. Stainless tubing as ports...I even added a valve at the bottom. More details on this later. Mockup pics. Hope you like... /Rick

    Hi Chris, I think I found those holding tools at Micro Mark many years ago...I think they still got them. Thanks for all comments guys... I have looking for some nice headers for this build for a while now, but I have not find any that fits spot on. The space between the frame and the engine heads are very very tight. I´ve been looking in evrey signle model kit , part box whitout finding what I´m looking for...so I decided to make my own headers the same way that I did on the "Skunkworks Pro Mod Nova"... from electrical installation cord.
