The pic of the radius rod looked like a pic of the real thing till I noticed the grey primer !

Great thread there's a lesson for everyone reading this !

Mad skills Mark.  Taking an end-mill to the manifold..........well, that had to be interesting to say the least.  Nicely done of course.  Keep sharing the steps / processes you're doing along the way, they're greatly appreciated.   cheers, tim

I am beyond astonished at what I've been seeing as I started this thread and read through to this point. Every addition and tweak and correction is so plain and logical, based 100% on the thought "this part doesn't look like a real part" and the results are amazing.

If in the past you never looked into the "Big Boys" section, you would have missed it.  Now that moderators merged large scale model section into this general WIP section, it exposed it to the general population of the forum.  Personally I preferred to keep "big boys" in a separate section, it is what it is.

Thanks Guys!!

 

Built up the rear suspension rods and ends, and they work with the rest of the moving suspension parts.  Steel rods, cast resin joints made from 3D printed masters I designed and grew and brass pivot points.

I'm guessing the oval hole in the engine cover is a carry-over from the first issue for the power switch for the motor and lights.  They provide a plug, but it needs to be faired in.

Just a big ol' smile on my face of this post.....you nailed those (of course) 100%.   Just 1 question Mark, how strong are the resin joints?  I know you mentioned the brass inserts so they're most for the visual?    The latest pic also shares that nice clean finish to the spoiler.  A a lot of work and attention went into that as well.   cheers, Tim

Thanks Tim!  The resin joints are about as strong as styrene.  The brass is for strength and will not be visible in the end.

Yes, the rear spoiler was a good amount of work, especially because I dropped it a couple days ago and broke one corner off and had to rebuild it.
