Hey gang: I decided to sneak this build in while I build up courage to do more paint jobs on finished builds and because I wanted so badly to see if I was over my head attacking this skill level or if I should back off. I could have put the primed body on the finished chassis/engine, but that would spoil the surprise. Some of you may recognize the kit from familiar things and I'd ask that you not let on so I can do some much needed tinwork before painting and revealing the finished project. Here are the first few pics of the stages putting the engine together. The twin mag is courtesy of M.A.D. and the cogs//belt are Pro Tech. The blower/hat are from Teds and are resin. Here the frame, minor details like fire system, dry sump and MSD come together. Now it's starting to look like something! And now, here is is. I'm sorry I couldn't get a better pic of the fuel dist. block on the rear of the 'charger or the tiny Pro Tech nuts used for the .025 black injector wire. Perhaps it's for the best! Once the body is done, I'll add the barrel valve linkage and some throttle linkage on the other side as well. These last pics are all relative within a 4-5 day time frame, but except for the fuel system, they weren't back breaking. CA and accelerator can be dangerous partners at times. I've found that using the accelerator as a spray pump causes the surrounding paint to dissolve, so I use the little .049 cent plastic bulb syringes to apply it in drops (another amatuer breakthrough!) I hope you enjoy. Please point out mistakes or improvements I can use in the future. I plan to implant a Ross Gibson/Sonny'sSuper Max into a 1/25 well known pro mod model later this year as a 3-6 month project! Thanks!
