  1. Thank you for taking the time to record and post the videos Tiago. Progressing very nicely. cheers, tim
  2. First time I've visited your thread Kenneth and must say it's quite impressive. I certainly admire your approach/attitude towards building too. congrats on a job well done. cheers, tim
  3. Wonderful pics Bruce. I love the lone where you have the engine in the car and the wheels/tires in front for a quick mock-up. Very purposeful. Your paint is phenomenal btw. cheers, tim
  4. Man there sure are a lot of interesting and wonderful builds in this category right now and yours, Chris, is another one. Great work! cheers, tim
  5. Man does that color "pop" Wayne. Looks great on the car. cheers, tim
  6. Steve, wonderful updates since I last checked in. The polishing of the body is just like the interior...........in that the scale and detail throughout are just perfection. Your paint always looks great but I've always admired the depth of it. It always appear "in scale". Polishing paint like that must be a bit nerve wracking worrying about burning through it somewhere. Like the "thought I'd throw some carpet on the door panel while I was at it".........that's an after thought for most and again I look at it and the scale you achieved and it just brings the door panel to life. Nicely done sir! cheers, tim
  7. Just a big ol' smile on my face of this post.....you nailed those (of course) 100%. Just 1 question Mark, how strong are the resin joints? I know you mentioned the brass inserts so they're most for the visual? The latest pic also shares that nice clean finish to the spoiler. A a lot of work and attention went into that as well. cheers, Tim
  8. Really enjoy the body changes you've made to the car Steve. The headlights look much better down low IMO and the rear fenders really change the look of the car (for the better). Awesome start! cheers, tim
  9. Hi Chris, I am fortunate to have several comprehensive historical books on the Porsche 917. Two were authored in Germany. The "bible" on this car IMO was written by Walter Naher. "Porsche 917, Archive and Works Catalogue". 575 pages with too many one of a kind pics of the cars developed and raced from 1968 to 1975. Unfortunately the book is out of print. There are new copies available on Amazon. They're $910. U.S. - and are printed in German/English. The Hippie car was chassis 21. It was part of the initial homologation (spelling?) of 25 cars that they produced to get them certified. All pics of these cars being assembled and in various stages of construction show a matte black chassis. Some chassis parts were left bare but the vast majority of the chassis was black. Your chassis assembly is just phenomenal. This is going to look so cool when completed. Keep her going man! Cheers, Tim
  10. Dave, thanks man. I knew they'd be a challenge but I'm tickled with em' for sure. I'll be in touch about a possible visit soon. cheers Randy, Also a big thanks. Love what you did on the Porsche engine. To anyone stopping by here, be sure to visit Randy's new thread on his Porsche build under "WIPS"...........you won't be disappointed.
  11. WOOF! Silly good Randy. Now, I want you to..............just kidding. You set a super high bar all by yourself. The entire engine just POPS. The detail on the coil is a head turner in its own right and made me stare for a few minutes in and of itself. Cheers sir!
  12. Stellar looking car Tim. cheers, tim
  13. Thank you as always fellas. The pair are done. What's left on them, fuels bowls, accelerator pump side detail, venturi's and final assembly / detailing them. The biggest part of these are done and to think it only took me a couple months to get to this point. Got a lot of ideas on how I want the manifold to look and how to make it. Cheers, tim The pieces are not assembled, the pics are just for mock-up purposes. There is still some clean-up to do as well before final assembly.
  14. Well done Francis....and imaginative in how you did it. I'll be curious to see your results with the "brass black"........can always use something like that. Hope it works well for you. cheers, tim
  15. Love those outside pics of the truck. Really shows the paint and decals. Nicely done! cheers
