  1. Hi Folks, Here is the goal... This is our product that is loaded into the store now. It is 15 inch wheel that will fit most 1/25th scale tires. Shown here with an AMT Cobra tire and a Revell tire. Have left it fairly wide so it fits more tires and the width can be sanded or cut with a razor saw to fit your application. This is a one piece print take comes ready to paint. Set of four sells for $15.00 For those of you wanting a larger rim for 1/24th scale sports cars, a larger version will be available in April.
  2. Thanks to all that ordered ! Appreciate you posting your pics Rex. The restock is loaded up in the store. Along with the 2 new motors that Mike mentioned above, there is also the Porsche 911 flat six. Randy
  3. Hi JC, I would assume 1/24th based on his motors to date but I will check with Michael. Randy
  4. Hi Craig, The re-order went in the day I received them:) Michael is adding his 911 flat six Porshe motor to this order. We hope to avoid our shipping woes this time as we are not in the holiday crush! Randy
  5. Hi Ray, Michael explained to me that he was not happy with the way some of the carbs printed on those GT40 Mk1 sets so he included an extra set of 4. As for colors for the Mk 2 427 I was looking at the RK Motors site. They did an extensive restoration on #2, the '66 LeMans winner and have a nice photo album.
  6. Hi Folks, After a 7 week journey from Germany to Colorado we have motors !! Three different engines from 'Mad Mike' are in stock. These are 3-D printed and will build into outstanding models. They are available here.... https://www.modelbuilderswh.com Thank you, Randy
  7. Thank you Daniel ! Tom, It is 30 gauge sheet stock that came from an jewelry supply store on ebay. It was a while ago and I could not find the actual purchase in my history. If you would search "nickel silver sheet stock" you should find some opitions. Hope this helps:) David, Very kind of you ! Eric, Did not ignore you yesterday, had to check and see if the trip out to NNL was still on. It is , look forward to seeing you again! Randy
  8. Hi Folks, Hi Bill, appreciate the comment( still planning on sending you a package! ) Tim, You are too kind my friend. but really nice to hear:) Andy, Yes, those "Mad Mike" produced carbs that Scale Production sells are really sweet. (I sell them in my store also, but currently out of stock) But the ones I print are pretty cool also . The linkage is made up from a small length of nickel silver tubing that I stuff a RB Motion Rod end into. The opposite end gets a wire rod with a RB Motion nut slipped on. Nickle s. tubing is Albion Alloys .5 mm O.D. .3mm I.D. The rod ends are the smallest ones #1501 RB Motion The nuts are the smallest ones .020" RB Motion Bruce, Thank you buddy! I wish I could find more time. Mark, Glad you are liking this one. Dann, Thank you ( enjoy all your many projects!!! ) Thanks Kurt, I see you doing this stuff all the time Sonny, Thank you ! Mike, thank you for following along. Hey Pete, Like Tim says, If I can post an update how about you:) Tom, Glad you like it, what pieces are you looking at ? Thank you Rob!
  9. Working on the engine next and then will hook up the clutch. Thanks for looking in! Randy
  10. Hi Folks, Can not believe it has been a year since I last posted progress:( I really am slow !!! Belated thanks to those who commented, Alex, Thank you Sir, now quit messing with those cameras and get back to the models! Tim, As always, thank you for your support! Your new project in the Drag section is shaping up to be another bar raiser!!! Andy, Thanks! love following your progress in your Old Racing Engines thread. Jason, Glad you are still following along my friend:) Bill, Appreciate the kind words! Bernard, looking forward to getting together next week at the NNL West. Daniel, Thank you and we should talk about creating a NNL show here in Denver area. Need to fit in some items before adding more framework. Working on the pedals. The Birdcage used dual master cylinders for the brakes, a rather complex rod & lever system for the throttle and a simple lever layout for the clutch. Reference pics... Found some p.e. pedal faces that looked right and soldered them to some brackets. Made up the rest from nickel silver tubing,brass sheet, rod and goodies from RB Motion. Will post this to see if it works, more to follow...
  11. Beautiful machining skill on display my friend. This new project looks to be shaping up as a must follow ! Randy
  12. Gary, That is the price for the Mk1 GT40 motor, the Mk2 GT40 motor will come in at $55.00 with the 289 small block pictured in this thread will sell for $27.00 Mike was thinking 2-3 weeks for production and we can probably plan on 2 weeks shipping, depending on the holidays. I'm hoping for right after Christmas. Randy
