  1. Have made progress with engine, started to work on scratch building magneto (first photo),,, and barrel valve (second photo),,, puke tank and oil filter housing finished (third) ,,,, ,,,, manifold, and blower injector lines made and fitted (fourth). Cannot find a blower belt pullley set that i am happy with, looking through parts bin and have a few in mind but all seem to have a very thick belt moulding,,,, ANYONE KNOW OF A GOOD RESIN SET?
  2. Sorry Mike cannot find it again now, but here's the version i have copied, note 8 plug heads, no header cut outs,,, P,S. just noticed your e mail, check your in box,
  3. Heres the Engine, (gone for single plug heads, as in reference photo of car at Don Garlits Museum) i have block, heads, rocker covers and manifold done, working on manifold injector block now,,,
  4. More progress made, have found body up photo of the car at Don Garlits museum, which is great help and confirms things like no computer, 8 plug heads, blue plug wires etc, as far as build goes i have attached salvaged/repaired heads to the block and made some adjustable rear axle mounts, (cut from an old scrap chassis) attached to plasticard, which will allow me to adjust the rear ride height at a later stage, see 2nd photo.
  5. Got some more done, built up the ends of the original spoiler with car body filler and sanded back, attached larger spoiler, made from a piece of plasticard which i rolled a bit of a curve into, and then fixed a narrower piece underneath, also started engine (stripping and repairing previously assembled one) photo shows repairs to cylinder head underway. Thanks for the info Mike and i think your right body needs to be lowered (and header cut outs made), but i think the heads will be single plug (seen short pit video clip showing one mag) i think it they went to dual plugs later in the year when Raymond Beadle quit as driver !!?
  6. Thank you all for your kind comments, and heres a body down shot for Dave, the main parts body & most of chassis was an AIRFIX Black Belt funny car (probably a repackaged MPC kit for Uk sale) Slixx decals (didnt fit this body side stripes had to be cut into 20 sections each side !)
  7. Don't know how long it will take but thought i'd start another model(currently haves s/m dust, frank iaconio firebird, glidden thunderbird and Tommy ivo rail underway!) So i acquired a 7/11 mustang f/c (started/badly) off ebay, stripped the body and disassembled the chassis, opened roof hatch, and from few reference photos i have found i noticed the 7/11 car spoiler is wrong, the car i want to build (early 1985? john lombardo driven) has longer and lower on the body rear spill/spoiler plates so i started re-cutting the body to fit more accurate plates. Struggling to get good reference info so any help with (a) paint colour ? ( 8 or 16 plug heads? and ©what wheel pattern?
  8. After years of entering various (uk ipms) model shop competitions, and getting several 2nd's/3rd's and highly commended i finally got a win ! POOLE Annual model show last weekend first place in Class 6 (civilian vehicles),,,, Thing is i was trying to get my FRANK IACONIO Pron Stock car done in time but failed so grabbed this old JOHN COLLINS Funny Car instead,,,,,glad i did now !
  9. Yeah that's the ones, just found I jpg of them through google, but cannot see them on slixx site anymore, now to find someone with some old stock. Thanks Don
