    The completed build. Some tune up here and there but its pretty much done. Thanks for watching, although this topic is not of so much interest here on this forum. But I appreciate the little interest you have shown here. Until my next build guys. Chow! My apologies for the bad pics.

    31. I decided use another wire that I found in a dumspters. I simply cut both ends to reveal the copper wire inside. Then I measured the distance between the two Electro attachments and made the cut. I also 
     
    wrapped a much smaller wire around the the thicker one. I just thought it would add to the overall look.Then I primed the wires with black charcoal paint and then dried brushed them with silver.

    30. The cable attachments. I had the choice of two. The first one and the second version. I choose the second alternative just beacuse of the way it looked.
    Alternative 1.

     
    Alternative 2.

     
    Alternative two mounted together and base painted. Will dry brush it before mounting it to the Electro attachments.
     

     
    The cable will not be glued as I want make any changes if I am not 100% satisfied with the look after mounting it. So there are mount holes at each end that will make it possible to just shove the cable in the and out it the need arises. This is one of the main reasons I chose to use lead soldering thread as the cable. It makes it possible to pose the cable exactly the way I want it without any movement.

    29. The Electro cable that will attach to both the pod and the engine. I used a soldering lead thread is what I used to make the big cable. A thinner steel wire is used to wrap around the bigger cable. THese will be painted black then dried brush with silver.

    27. I think the overall look on this old beast is starting to look pleasing to the eyes.

    26. The painting is done on the area surrounding the intakes. Will be doing some dry-brushing later on them.

    25. The overall look, so far on this pod. I think it is starting to look descent enough. Still contemplating the components surrounding the seating compartment. We'll see if I will use both or one or just leave it off entirely.

    23. Painting the external intakes on the fuselage.


  15. tiking added a post in a topic The Junkster Pod Racer build - Finished!!!   

    22. So I started working on the fuselage intakes. Nothing too complicated or advanced, but I thought a slick design would work well for this old beast, even though it is an out-dated design and/or engine. I saved about anything that looks it might work for me in any future builds. I am an asthmatic, so I have lots of these canister lying around. I knew one day they will come in handy. I Still contemplating the design aspect of this section of the build. Will have to do more testing on the over all look later. But so far, this is what I have.
