MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. Your awesome building skills and determination makes up for the fitment issues with the kit. It turned out great!
  2. I was wondering if these grommets have through holes in the centers? You probably tried this already.. but I would use a wire,nail, pin.. with a diameter appx the hole size of the grommet, as a guide. Place the pin through the grommet, and slide the grommet up the pin. Then place the pin in the seat hole. Then use tweezers to slide the grommet on to the seat. If the seats have already been installed, you might still be able to do this.
  3. Getting close to completion. Decals and windshield yet to go. I will be building a vac-form machine to make the windshield. It is close to 5 inches long.
  4. Today, I managed to make a little progress. I made the fuel lines from extruded yellow pla filament. Maybe it's too yellow, but I couldn't find anything else laying around that I could use. The lines are a bit translucent, which was a fortunate accident. I painted and glued the inside of the wheels into place, and then permanently glued the wheels and tires on the suspension. Also glued the roll bar in place as well as the rear wing "w" brace.
  5. I have the ignition system in place. I need to find a suitable material for the injector lines. More to come on that.
  6. Yes! My eyes won't let me build 1/24 anymore.. without making a mess. Here are the fuel injection and ignition parts fresh off the printer. I'll be plumbing and wiring next week.
  7. The headers were modeled and printed in one piece. This is one of the advantages of 3d printing; the part does not have to be removed from a mold. Each tube lines up correctly as they were modeled.
  8. I permanently attached the front and rear suspension and drivetrain.
  9. I finished up the paint and gold trim. Not the best, but good enough for my limited painting skills. I glued the radiators in place, and here are a few pictures of them.
