I love it and southwest scale chassis hood looks perfect.i need to get me one of them. the blue looks dead on what color did you use? if you want to try one of these oil tanks on your next buid pm me your address and ill send you one.great job.
yes it is a pic of the real car.weld points on the headers are molded in.i just black washed them.the lower weld points don't exist I just put two lins of wash to make it look like a weld line.the header in the pic is not the header for the build.i was just experimenting with a few ideas.ill kinda see what looks good and then finish the two for the kit.
I had to rework the dash filling in the holes were the kit chassis bars went through it.i also put end plates on because the doors will be open and you could see under the dash..........I sanded of the molded in gauges. cut a piece of aluminum sheet to fit and sprayed it anodized blue.put in slixx decals.cut aluminum rod for gauge bazels and topped it off with pro teck bolt heads.....sorry pics are dark
just a little update.i got my rims from micro nitro and the rest of my parts .scotts tires look great with these rims.not only is his stuff graet he has the fastest shipping ive seen.im trying to use as many aftermarket parts from as many makers as I can.they deserve to be shown off for what they add to the modeling community........right or wrong this is the finished chassis.......here is a pic of the header ive been messing around with.painted with buffing aluminum.heat stained with Tamiya powders and given a black wash......the manifold was also sprayed with aluminum buffinf and given a black was.i also put a coat of future on it to see if it would look like polishes aluminum.its kind of an experiment.if it doesn't look right ill strip it and alclad it so tell me what you think.
thank you all for the help so far.....no new pics but im working on finishing the chassis suspention parts.how does the wheelie bars attack to the suspention in this car.is it to the 4 link or is it attached to the rear end like in this pic of an 83 Camaro.
here is a mock up of the direction i think im going to go.dew to lack of references out there ill go by what i can see and fake the rest.if you look at the pics of the first car it shows some of the bars are exposed and the rest are covered with panels.in the second pic the reher Morrison car. i zoomed in and the chassis looks alot like the chassis of the first car......ill have to scrap the idea to open the trunk because i don't know what it looks like.......the bars of the mock up are not set but you can get an idea of where im going with it.......lets here the pros and cons.thanks
