Nice filters!! Are they made using the paper back novel trick?

I am finally getting some time and motivation to move this project forward.  I located and pinned the gas tanks to help aid  the exhaust pipe location.  I wanted the  pipes strong but yet removable through the fab process.  After many failed attempts I ended up with a heavy stick pin as the core, covered by 3/32 tube with a 5/32 tube over this.  It is slotted to hold the exhausts in the proper position but is still removable.  I am happy to be moving past this issue and hope to have better progress moving forward.

Thank you everyone.  I am still working on some of the details.  I made the shackles and the teeth on the lower bumper to finish out the rear.  The side molding on the main caddy, upper radiator shroud supports, and some firewall detail.  I think armament will be next.  Thanks for looking.  Steve

Thanks for the continued interest in this project.  I don't have any big update to give you but I am tinkering with some of the small details. The tail light housing fitment to the fender is terrible on these kits.  I will update when I have more to show but I just haven't put a lot of time in this yet this winter.

I missed the last couple of updates on this bad boy Steve. I really don't know what to say as I'm at a total loss for words. You're really showing the model companies how it's done though. That I can say!!

"The tail light housing fitment to the fender is terrible on these kits."

Are you suggesting that the fit is.....mediocre? :D

 

I appreciate your attention to detail on this project and I'll happily devour any updates when they are available :D

Hi everyone.  Sadly Photobucket has blocked all my pics but I am going to try to upload directly to this forum and replace them all.  The Gigahorse  progress has slowed down.  I have done a little work on the spear gun but little else.  Thanks for the interest and support and wish me luck to restore this build.

I am glad I followed this and saw all the progress before the Photobucket-Apocalypse.  Pay $399 a year to have your pictures show up on forums (3rd party hosting is now the top tier paid plan)

 

Anyways, keep it up! Love the movie and love the build.
