Thanks gents! I am really into vintage Japanese vehicles right now, so many projects yet so little time lol! Anyways, here is the legendary S20 as it sits today. Linkage mostly sorted, need to add each link to each carb next. Carbs and intake trumpets permenantly mounted now. Up next is perhaps scratch build a starter, mount the oil filter, fab a dip stick, fuel line, and other misc detailing bits. Should be deciding on wheels/tires and getting the stance/suspension sorted soon. More updates coming.
This weekend I started scratch building the linkage. I tried to keep the appearance as close to actual photos of a 1:1 as possible in this scale. Mainly using brass rod and very thin strips of sheet brass with bits from RB Motion and Scale Hardware
I second the use of the "Gelly Roll" gell pen. Good stuff and they have lots of colors to boot. I found myself buying all sorts of color pencils, markers, paint pens, etc. They come in very handy when detailing an interior, chassis, or anywhere really that you wish to add some fine or hard to paint details.
Got a little time in this weekend. Started detailing the carbs and did a mock up. Next up is the linkage and fuel system. Also mounted the intake trumpets to the mounting place. I was worried about getting epoxy on the mounting plate, so I fastened the punched discs first, then the trumpets to the discs. Also added some PE bits. Lots more to add.
