Hello guys, I’ve been working on this bad boy in the last couple day, and is turning amazing n my opinion, of course have a lot of mistakes but is my real first promod full resin build project, so far I did work on how to get the hood in place and added some pins in the front of the chassis to hold it, did the same for the body, added some little plates in the rear section and some for the firewall, this will look a lot better after I put some putty to make it look smoother, finally have my front suspensions mounting strouds in place from futurattractions and now is almost ready to markup, am really having a lot of fun with this project...

Hello

can you tell me how you do a mirror image of the frame? I would have a pile of styrene trying to duplicate the right side with the left side to look exact and to make sure the wheel base and stance is correct.  Graph paper and drawing is a great start. Let me know please

 

thanks

Thanks Lorne, is really hard like you said, tucked me like 3 try to get it close enough, i do  a lot of measurements before glue the parts and make sure one part is almost like the other, just to do the front suspensions mounts tuck me an entire morning to make them and the next day did the rest, i can send you a couple imagines so you can see the process better...

Send it already, hope it helps you

heres is a little update on this project, did resin cast of my favorite engine, blown 426 hemi, (not for sale) came out ok in my opinion but after putting the engine in place noticed that the blower hits the windshield area and decided to replace for another one a little bit shorter and make the trick, also did some cleanup on the PE parts for the front suspensions...

Hello, yesterday I did start mocking up the rear suspensions for this project, now I need to scratch build my suspension shocks for this setup, later on will be the wheelie bars to get this area ready for paint
