Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. Here a replica of a Top Fuel car from 1966. This is a scratch build, using original Don Long plans, and built to exact 1:25 scale. This is the 165" version from 1966. All metal, brass chassis and body panels, complete motor and Olds rearend, as well as rear wheels are cast nickel alloy parts. Fronts are laced, silver plated copper wire soldered to copper rims. Front axle is 2mm steel piano wire (wire is actually used for spring coils, but our hobby calls it piano wire). Paint is a mix of pink, white and dark flesh fingernail polish, with a top coat of clear gel fingernail paint. The body was primed using fingernail ridge filler....excellent for smoothing out micro scratches and dents!! Paint was applied with the brush from the bottle. First off, a series of WIP photos from the chassis build; Here with the motor block in proper scale and getting things situated in the chassis. Important here, the 8° dump (tilt of the motor), and the exact 23" from axle to firewall; Here a few photos of the body build and panels; Here a few motor related photos; Next, further assembly and finished car; Just finished the car today. Total of only 4 months bench time; That's it. Mike..
