      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Yeah, I know Dave, I just don't like it so it got reshot with the flat red again.

    Here's how the fender looks. Not liking it.

    Thanks so much Dave. I started sanding one of the front fenders last night and I'm not liking it one bit. Will have to go a different direction.

    Uh oh...I moved some PhotoBucket folders around and this si what I get. I'll post a few pictures of where I'm at now.



    Thanks for the comments and following along. I'm hoping to get this done for a contest this weekend.

    Well....my 'ah-ha' moment turned into a 'uh-oh' moment. I'm back to the hemi from the Bantam Blast. The chassis was set up for this engine and I'd need to redo it including striping the paint and repainting it. I'm looking for a good dual carb tunnel ram or I may just make one.

    I'll be there. Don't think I'll get anything finished to show though.

    3D scan the completed model with the body off and the body separately and have them 3D printed.

    Friggin' cool update Tim. And I suppose both of those amazing pedals will work?!?

    Me too and its not even mine.  :-D
    Great to see all of this come together. All of your little sub-assemblies that you have completed are now being put to use and your attention to the minute details is showing.

    Thanks guys. The white letters / numbers are decals that I made the art for and sent off to Chief Joseph here on the forums for printing. His stuff is the best and great service too.

    Thanks guys. I appreciate you following along and commenting. I had an 'ah-ha' moment this morning while looking at this mock-up and decided to go with the early hemi from the Miss Deal kit. Much better detail and fits better than the Bantam Blast block.

    Here's the mock up.

    Spend a bunch of time at the bench today making the spindles for the functioning steering. Using the kit plastic axle, I made the spindles from brass channel, brass tubing and stainless steel tubing all soldered together. The ss tubing is for the steering arms from RB Motion along with their rod ends. These are so strong so this is how I'll do these for all of my builds in the future. I need to order some 0.5mm threaded hex nuts and bolts to finish this off properly. I've been told a place bought the remaining stock from Scale Hardware so I need to get an order together.
    Here's a picture of the axle with a black piece of wire holding the stuff together for now. Had to put together a mock up shot too.

    Hang with me. Comments welcome.
