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
the reference pics I have always have a glare on the glass but if it wasn't in the rules im sure it isn't there.how close is the chassis in the original kit compared to the real car?i fount this pick of grumpys Camaro.it shows bars down the middle of the tubs but im not sure how it ties into th rear hoop....in the second pic it shows two bars coming down from the cener of the hoop but not in the first pic.
NEED SOME HELP FROM THE NESTALGIA PRO STOCK GUYS.as the pics show ive started with the intior chassis.by the refrence pics I think ive got the look but I cant find any pic that sows much behind the seat.does anyone have any idea where it goes from here.also i cant tell by any of the pics if the bar I colored in red is on the original car.any help would be great.
boo boo I use the back side of the black handled testors hobby knife.i like it the best because its sturdy.it works great for plastic body because they are thin.dont use it on resin body they are much thicker and the testors blade also get thicker.you end up taking more than you wanted to.
