Thanks guys!

So I decided to cut the mid plate out. I did this one in plastic but will cut the final one in aluminum. It is actually sitting on the bellhousing dowels in the block! So with all this hard work, I had to mock it up in the chassis to see how it looks. Well....BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH......

Color me motivated now! 😁

:wub:   -  All the time was well worth it Paul.   The engine is spectacular.   cheers, tim

Thanks Tim, It's getting there and I am glad I have gone back in a reworked much of it! It's severely pushed the project back however. I got involved with a little detail contest online where it was just a section (engine or interior) so it's pushed me to get it done.

looks like you're getting that uv printer dialed in really well Paul. your parts are just fantastic looking!!! keep up the excellent work!!!

 

Thanks Dave, I still have some issues on occasion, especially when changing types of resin. Printing in the trailer has also added to the difficulties of it all as it is not easy to print where we are now! (dirt lot and the printer is in the basement lol) I did have it at work for a while but printing at work had it challenges too! Like if there is an issue I can't easily correct it since the computer is here at home.

Also, I appreciate all the help you have given me  with this project! Much of it couldn't happen without your assistance!

Haven't touched this in a while but this is where I'm at now. Probably going to wait for house to be finished to continue on. Its too difficult to build something this complicated in the trailer! (41' fifth wheel)

Slowly getting there! At 1:1 scale currently! Orange line in the rear view is the 1/4 panel at the middle of the rear tire.

I really like the rendering Paul.  The rear wing adds something extra to it.   cheers, tim

Tim, thanks. Not going to use that wing though. Rendering pulled from the internet and sized 1:1 scale from some minor dimensions.

major undertaking the Paul. while i'm sure you're totally capable...i'll wish you luck anyway!!! can't wait to see it!!!!

 

Thanks Dave!

I'm going to need all the luck I can get haha! Major undertaking is putting it mildly! I am learning surfacing as I go which is making it difficult to get the required results.
