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.
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.
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?
