Revell 32 5 window Coupe

Recommended Posts

Worked building up the windshield frame and making it into a split window. Also messing around with wheel ideas and carriage on with the gear theme.

A small update. 

Because I am lazy and have never learned how to measure and make bends I have to do the corners in pieces. Last night I was able to nail half with one piece. No luck tonight with the other half. So I decided to do each corner as a separate piece.  I am not sure what I am going to do with the window. As I type this I am thinking of actually making it wider and taller.

Did some more work on the windshield and started messing with the grill body. 

I started this build with chopped top only and the rest an OOB mindset, that has gone way off the rails.

Making a new tunnel ram intake. The carb mounting flanges are not very symmetrical but once the carbs are installed the flanges will not be seen, so I am not to concerned.

Wow, now that's clean...but tell us about your spray booth. Is that a reclaimed industrial unit?

Thanks Mr D.

The spray booth is of my own design. It is a down draft design using a 6" sono tube, like the ones used for forming post holes, 6" ducting, a large server cabinet fan, grease grills for a large over head stove exhaust fan, reclaimed door windows, and a kitchen table ripped in half and mounted to the wall.  I added a small work area that which you see extended out. I still need to replace the foam core end piece, I dropped the glass for that end during the build.

Small update, I really had to work to get to this point with the intake. Once I got the first intake runner I made a fixture for my chopper, easy peasy. The intake looks pretty crude or racy right now, it will soften when it all comes together. At least I am hoping that is the case.

It does look like welds, but unfortunately they are not, they are just airbubbles in the primer. 

 

 

I think this is as good good as it is going to get before paint. I am still tweaking the shell and the chop. I think I am going to go with large iron work rivets around the front and rear windows.

I love the cogs on the frame. Never seen that before. 

The chop is spot on. You made it look easy.!

This is going to be excellent when it's done. Nice one!

oh, and I take my hat off to you, for your spray booth.

Anyone who knocks a hole through the wall of their house, in the name of model building, deserves respect 🙇

Thanks Guy,  I appreciate the props. A man has to do what a man has to do to get his model room just right. Lol. I have lots to learn about when doing chops.
