Buck Baker 66 442

Recommended Posts

Since I’m stupid or something I always have about 6 cars going at any time. I switch off between them. This one is a pretty simple build aside from rollbar and interior stuff.

That looks really cool!  I'm only 1/2 as stupid, keeping 3 or 4 going at once :o

I don’t know Dave I’ve been known as the undisputed king of unfinished projects. I’ve got models that have been half done for decades.

I have a 1/12 scale Roush IMSA Cougar that has been in the works since 1990. I spent 100's on AeroQuip fittings alone. 

 

Sorry to hijack.....I'll wait to see your finished Buck OLDS!

Scratchbuilt other than wheels, tires and seat.......Engine is a 1/12 Chevy 350 I modified and resin cast. Like I said....I invested enough to buy a decent used real car!!!

Ok so you did the same as I did with a Reventlow Scarab. I scratchbuilt a brass tube space frame modified the BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH out of a

Strombecker Scarab body then got lost on making a DeDion tube rear suspension . So it sits 20 years later. At least it’s in the company of others in the same boat.

YEP!  To many projects is a sign of a genius........I really hope so anyway.....

Mark I’m not real wild about the fuel cell I made for this one. Hangs down too far. But I’m not about to try an rip it off of there.

I feel your pain. I have done some things, really didn't like them, but realized nobody but the rivet counters would care, so I forged ahead. I'm sure nobody will notice when they see the final pictures. As long as the over all look is awesome, which this model will be, that's  what's important.

Any more progress on this one?

Nothing worth noting. Hopefully by this weekend.
