    Super detail, Chris!  Phenomenal work, my friend...

    Immaculate work, Rickard... I love it!
  3. futurattraction added a post in a topic Pro Mod narrowing and streching question   

    Modifying a body to fit the Pro Mod category, if you're really trying to "do it right" is going to involve modifying pretty much every panel on the car.  Wheelbase typically is set at 115" and it is fairly customary to have a 45" overhang, measured from the center of the front wheels, forward.  This may be in the shape of the actual body, or can be accomplished, to some degree, with a splitter.  I don't know if there are published dimensions per given body style or not.  I haven't seen them, but that doesn't mean they aren't out there.  For more regulated classes, such as Pro Stock, there are templates with published dimensions for various points on the car.  I will post some pics of a pro mod body I've been working on, just to give you an idea of what I've done.  With it, the roof has been chopped a scale 2-1/2"; narrowed and tapered front to rear; wedged front to rear; body sides were flattened from the belt line down, between the wheel well openings; front fender opening has been drastically reduced in size; hood will be molded into the front fenders and vents in front of the windshield will be filled; drip rail and all trim has been removed; bumpers will be narrowed and blended into the body.  I'm not sure how I'm going to deal with the nose/grille at this point.  I'm not a big fan of the long, sloping noses because they change the appearance so drastically.  To some degree, at least with our modeling subject matter, it is, to some degree, a matter of what looks right, which is more the direction I'm leaning with the nose.

    Cool trick, Rickard, as far as the acorn nut is concerned.  I love seeing your work...

    Sorry to hear about your primer setback.  It looks like everything is well-recovered.  Your hinge work looks phenomenal and the lid, itself, fits perfectly.  Can't wait to see your next update, especially the interior panel for the lid!

    To confirm what was said above, my stock body Fairmont is on hold for the time being.

    I love the stance from your 8/29/14 entry.  The lower the better!

    Rusty, you have absolutely nothing to apologize about.  I think you're doing an excellent job so far.  I will look forward to seeing future updates...

    This is going to be a sweet build, Brian.  Can't wait to see your next update.
  15. futurattraction added a post in a topic tire help needed   

    You're welcome to take a look at my website, www.futurattraction.com  I currently have two sizes of tires available in rubber.  Both fit 1/25th wheels, but are also stretchable enough to fit 1/24th.  I will be coming out with a true 1/24th scale FC/TF style of slick pretty soon.
