  5. Aftermarket Directory

    Casey, One of the manufactures that you have listed Micro Nitro was sold some time ago. The new owner A.J., is on Facebook, but is still not set-up for business. I thought you were providing a list of Companies that did sell to the public. Although I have tried to contact him several times with no success. I did the same for the prior owner, but he didn't remember, because of his health.
  6. Tim, I am terribly sorry about the accident. A brilliant model-er like you will surely rebound. Best, Ron Berke
  7. 41 Willys - 1/25 Scale

    Hello, Thanks everyone for taking the time to respond to my 41 Willys in progress. Kind of hit a wall. I surely appreciate your comments. Sorry Michael I don't have any thing new to report. I don't think I will be able to fit the scratch built 426 Hemi in this Willys. Thanks Memysel, Art, Dave, Bruce and Edgar. Art, that box design work done sure fooled me. I did not intend to be so delinquent in responding to your feedback. Back in late Feb.,early March like most on the forum use for wheels. I tried to obtain some aluminum wheels. Things did not work out well for these standard wheels and the project has stopped. I don't know where to go, and have lost all interest. Ron
  8. Frame jig

    Dwayne, I read your post on a chassis jig. Because I work in brass, I use both a SOLDERING BOARD CERAMIC HONEYCOMB with pins that you can find on eBay and my own similar to the Chassis shops made from 1/8" .125 Aluminum Sheet Plate 6" x 8" 6061 http://www.ebay.com/usr/metalremnantsinc You surely can use a metal surface instead of aluminum. I have a jig that I lay over the surface to drill my holes. I use aluminum with a Hakko soldering station on both surfaces with the pins and aluminum square cut-offs to hold things in place. As Misha stated always start laying it out on quadrille paper first. We all have are own way of doing things, but I hope this information I provided is helpful. Best, Ron

    Thanks Gordon, I just realized I did not set the bellhousing on the mid plate so I need re-do some work.
  15. 41 Willys - 1/25 Scale

    I appreciate everyone's interest in my work including Michael, Gergo K, Dave, Le Roy, Bob, Bruce and Rob. Michael, the locking door idea came from a builder that was building a 1/16 model. It was a struggle in 1/25 scale. Here are some picks of my latest work. I re-did the seat frame. The other version just would not work out. Thanks for your interest.
