    Some of your photos would fool some people if your DOF was carried right through. Great job..I like.

    Great stuff, and all this time I thought you were going to build a metal body
    How will you prepare the surface for painting?

    Ognib, I haven't checked into this forum in a long time because of outside jobs. Having refreshed my memory of this model I have to ask,
    with all due respect, have you completed a panel from the dozens of bucks you have made?
    I generally check and do the panels as I go.
    Also in that "away time" I produced some piece with methods that might be of help. If you will look through this post and consider
    the front axle construct and the method of doing the headers.

    Again, this is only a "serving suggestion".

    jb, the salt and a portion of the mountains is a photo of Bonneville from the net. The car was photographed in sunlight on white paper with baking soda for the "salt" element.
    I isolated the car and it's shadows from the shot and placed that element on a digitally altered background. There are about 8 pieces of sky to the 'moody' background from
    the net. The camera was a $75 Kodak pocket camera and the software is "Painter5" which I've used since 1998. Harry P would have a handle on this trickery....

    No more 1/4 scale, I'm building 1/8 and .........what a change.

    Thanks for comments jb and Scott.

    No encore, I'm done and finished building this scale. So no more on this forum.
    Here's the other car finished.










    I want to thank the people who bothered to take the time to comment

    Many thanks to those who commented. I makes a good start to the day when you read positive feadback.
    Glen, the car is 48" long.

    I don't get the position of the pitman arm in relation to the position of the front wheels, or is the draglink not yet attached at the front?

    photo replaced.

    I knew you would remake the wheels. That tiny "mistake" would be on your mind for the rest of the build.
    Now it matches the rest of the car. Have to say, it's looking pretty good.

    Dave, excuse the late answer. All of the metal bits are bolted together and some of the major plastic parts.
    At this size they get heavy.

    Stainless is difficult to work with but it doesn't rust and polishes great. I make most of my suspension components from 316.
    45% silver solder works great to join parts and if you flow it in rather than pile it on, it blends in to the parent metal.
    I have been wanting to try laser welding on some of the parts like brackets etc but I live too far from a company who will
    let me use their machine. Ever had any dealings with laser welding?

    Your rig is coming along great.
