    It's most of a Revell Chevy 409. The Offenhauser "heads" you mention are really valve covers.

    I think the OP is asking about the front suspension.

    This looks like a torsion bar set up. Same as that on the Revell funny cars of the seventies.

    No it's a full detail kit. There were, however, some engine parts missing when I started back on this model last week. Not sure what why. So the hood is glued shut.

    Yes, I gave it a light sanding overall with some 3200 grit.

    No Skip, I took the wheels out of the wrapper, popped them into the tires and put 'em on the model. In hindsight I think they're a little too bright and I think I should've sprayed them with some Dull Coat or aluminum or something like that to tone them down a bit.

    I don't have any experience with "hot" paints at all. I use Testors Model Master line almost exclusively. It works well for me so I see no need to use anything else..

    Morgan 4/4
    I guess I'm in a British car mood lately. Here's the Tamiya Morgan 4/4







    Straight out of the box, paint is just Testors Model Master Clear Gloss over the kit plastic.

    James Hunt Mini Cooper
    It's been quite a while since I've built anything. This past season was just about the busiest in my career with 48 race days from April to October. Seems I was on the road just about every weekend.

    Anyway, this is the James Hunt Mini from the movie "Rush". I'm sure some of you will notice a few minor details that aren't quite correct. It does lack the auxiliary driving lights because I haven't found anything suitable yet, and then there's the . . . well okay, it's really just the Tamiya kit built straight out of the box with some roundel decals on the doors. But hey, it got me back in the mood to build again and it was fun and easy.

    It's built form the Tamiya kit, as I mentioned, the paint is Testors Ford Engine Blue and Classic White. The interior is flat blue and gray. The decals are from an old Fred Cady GT-350 Mustang sheet. I made the registration number plates on the computer.

    I certainly wasn't going for contest quality, just having a little fun!

    Oh yea, I forgot about that. Many years ago my wife and I went to a restaurant in the Mustang that had valet parking only. I said to the kid; "Look, if you park my car I'm going to give you a $1.00 tip, if you let me part it I'll give you ten bucks,"

    No problem, I parked it myself.

    Not true at all. My Mustang is 12 years old and is over 100,000 miles and doesn't have a mark on it. Why, because I never park in with the everybody else, never ever. I'd rather walk from the far corner of the lot. (I need the exercise anyway!) Also, whenever I can, I park in the last space on right hand end of a row, as close to the line or curb as I can. 90% of the cars that park next to me will have only the driver which means opening the door on the other side from my car.
