  1. Congratulations on completing this very unique build ! I wouldn't know where to start building a car from scratch, an ingenious method to use ! You must be proud to have finally completed it, well done !
  2. Wow I'm Loving this build Claude ! The roof design is genius, and the rear end treatment really suits the build. I'm also impressed the way you built the floor, and diffusers ! Wild Charger, wish I'd built this one myself !
  3. Great job on your 64, really nice kit to build isn't it ? You even got the front steering arms together, I gave up on my last 64 build there really fiddly to do, well done !
  4. Looking good Bill, looks like you got plenty of spares there body wise ! I've seen you use sprue goo before , is this used as filler ? Something I've never tried ??
  5. Great Idea Claude, thank you for the suggestion, this part is next on the list to make !
  6. Thanks for the input Gents ! Ive been concentrating getting the main parts together, before fussing over the details. Im using a new floor, new suspensions, new engine, new wheelbase and radically altered suspension height. So nothing fits ! I started by fitting the engine, replaced the now shortened front chassis rails in a new position, then new engine mounts. Inside a sharpie pen was cut up and used for the gearbox hump and a tube used for the prop cover. This will be carpeted next. New chassis rails, with a new gearbox mount, ( including holes for the exhaust to pass through ) Front crossmember was just too narrow so i had to split it and mount it on a new crossmember. Ive also rebuilt the firewall, again, to close the gap more around the gearbox. Needs a panel to finish off the gearbox / firewall area, but I can't find anything yet that I can use for this ? All painted black for now, i should have taken pics before the painting ! !
  7. Body's coming along well, look forward to more on this ! Very cool car to base this from, love seeing hot rods in bare steel i wouldn't paint it at all !
  8. The best bodywork I've seen on models ALWAYS looks so easy, but this proves it needs a surgeon to do it well ! You should be DR Kit, great explanation and very clear pics, thanks for sharing !
  9. Ah, Kit Karson, master of the chopped up hot rod ! ! Great seeing a new build from you, excellent chop as usual your cutting is so precise ! ! Carry on Brother !
  10. Thanks guys ! Claude, love your magoo build, incredible details ! Michael, your 33 looks very cool, you should continue with it !! Thanks Sonny it's funny how this style of 33/34 coupes never get built ! I don't remember seeing any finished cars like this ? Maybe their cursed, hope not I'm hoping to finish this one day ! Thanks Rob but I'll try the resin set i showed earlier first. This is very fragile so I might end up looking for new A arms to use.. ?
  11. Oh and thanks Claude. This is the independant front suspension i ordered ( i have a rear set too) Lots of clean up needed but it should be ok, ive only done the front crossmember so far......
  12. Either way i go, i still cant figure out the front end. It needs to be low enough for the engine and rad, high enough for the independant front crossmember. Oh and wide enough for the headers ! So i cut this off again, cut a big hole, and fitted an engine, a smallblock from the spares box ! New firewall fitted, and i might now try a tube front and rear chassis... ?
  13. Problem is i cant leave anything alone, i really like the look of it lower, and longer !
  14. Thanks guys ! Now that Xmas is out the way i can carry on with this ! First off the front chassis, i changed it to a scratchbuilt one i made years ago....
  15. So pleased to see more progress on this, such a crazy concept and the skill you have to build it is just incredible ! At the shows your lucky they dont drug test competitors , you`d be jumped on for entering this ! 😆
