    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 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. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

    Spectacular in every detail. Great photos.

    As you can see from my prior post, you've put the oil hose in the wrong position. It should attach to the oil tank filler neck; the place where you attached it to the tank should go out toward the front and be attached to the oil cooler to the right of the radiator. And your hose is about twice as thick as it ought to be.

    Depending how wonky you want to get, you should run wires from the distributor into the spark plug wires loom.

    Love it, beautiful work. Especially the "air conditioner."

    Here's the chart for above = you'll want to run the parts names through an online translator.

    Quite right, so it doesn't matter if you get the wires matching. One minor thing – the heat shield under the intake manifold is a separate part, usually shinier than the pipes, so it could use a little differentiation in finish and separation. As for the braided hose, there are three. One (part 25), runs from the valve cover to the oil tank filler neck. Another (part 24) runs into and out of the oil cooler mounted on the right side of the radiator.

    Another masterpiece. The dashboard is unbelievable, especially at this scale.

    I'd let the buyer fix the SS headlights. Most people around here can handle it.

    Beautiful work.

    I recently received my purchase of Harry's Rolls-Royce shooting  brake, profiled in his book. Keeps him alive for me.

    Easy Chrome by ALSA
    I've seen similar paints discussed here but I don't remember this particular one. Pricey ($199/small can) but it looks pretty good.

    Reminds me of the Alfa T33 Stradale.

    Spectacular in every detail. I have a Franklin Mint cabriolet die cast that's very nice, but nothing close to what you've done.

  17. sjordan2 added a post in a topic Streetcar kits ?   

    Harry P built a few. You may find his posts on this forum. Occre brand comes to mind.

    Absolutely magnificent. How did you handle the thicker bar grid under the main radiator mesh?  I'd love to see what you would do with the 1/16 1928 SS and the 1/16 540K.

    Thanks. However, the site doesn't seem to be currently active.
  20. sjordan2 added a post in a topic 1/16 Mercer Raceabout   

    As Harry wrote in his book, he had to tone down the brass in his build; he used black transparent window tint, then hit it with Dullcote to reduce the heavy plating look.

    They're saying the next, final season may not come until 2019. Not happy.

    Have you looked into Pocher parts from Modelmotorcars?
