Thank you. Sorry again about those enormous photos

That specific material is Structur 2 SC by Voco... a self curing composite material for crown and bridge.

It is an auto mix syringe type delivery so allows you to squirt right into a channel in the mould.... vs spatula mixing which dentistry has moved away from in many cases

The products are not cheap, but are readily available to me, so I used what I have. Worked OK ish

Thanks! I know they aren't cheap and hadn't even contemplated using the temporary materials for this. Good idea! I have used restorative composites in the past but was limited by the light penetration. It  didn't dawn on me to use a self cure resin for this. Its so obvious now (I should quit my job lol).

Made progress with the rear deck and will likely pose it open to show the engine and hide my questionable fitment.

Will make brake disks, shift linkage and turnable front wheels...that is the plan at least

Working on the underbelly...front and rear suspension. 

I added brass pins to the front wheel assembly and some aluminum inserts to the front wheel arms for strength and a positive seat. This lets the wheels steer, just have to devise a tie rod between the wheels now.

Rear has new brass shocks, not much else.

Both will get disk brakes and rotors of some sortIMG_2750.thumb.JPG.56359439711e10f007350

Wow, you have my respect and admiration for that effort! I have a small collection of 1/24 Fujimi 911 kits from '67 to '85 911s, I bought in order to mix parts and make a few 911s that don't exist in kit form. As a result I have many spare parts! Drop me a line if you're looking for something in particular, I'd be glad to make a donation if I can.  Also - Scale Production makes a nice line of 911 parts: bumper retrofits, headlight and tail light retrofits, wheels, seats, even straight race headers. Hard to find but there is also a seller from OZ on Ebay who deals in Scale Production parts.

Wow, what an offer. You are a god send

Will do a bit of inventory and see if I have anything I cannot salvage or modify

I think I will go with the rear deck and wing  I have cast, just want to see how that resin takes paint

Thank you again

Thanks, not the easy route, but a fun exercise

Have been working on the tie rod. Copied the plastic tubing and replaced with telescoping brass. I am being lazy and using CA glue instead of silver soldering which I just don't feel like doing for it.

Just need to link the rod to either side with a pivot, hmmm gotta think on that a bitIMG_2752.thumb.JPG.70667f606249e944ba1be

I LOVE to see old models brought back, and this is moving along nicely. That steering rack is pretty slick, too. Nice work.
