hey thx Davin!

Hey Fellas I decieded to cut my lenco tranny into pieces so i could detail it, but in do so It seemed to me that i could make a better tranny altogether. At first I planned to make it from styrene but a quick trip to my work shop and i found out I didnt have any left. So heres the new plan fab the entire transmission from brass! Can it be done? We'll soon see. Enjoy! B)

heres the resin tranny pictured

four differant sizes were cut from two differant sizes of brass tube.

I cut round plates which will later be shaped as the connection or mounting plates for each section. (sorry its blurry)

I'll have more for you soon , gotta go buy a new soldering gun so i can continue.........cya soon. B)

Just found this thread on your build Rom. Amazing work Brother! Yeah, I don't blame you for doing your own tranny. I mastered that one for Terry back in 1998 or so and I knew it was rough around the edges plus I always knew the bellhousing was incorrect for a more current Lenco. Just wanted to give folks something to start with. Terry at Flashpoint has encouraged me to do a new piece but I have been lollygagging. I'm hoping if I fiddle around long enough Terry or Paul Rowe will master one up! Either of their's would blow mine away anyhow! But I think we all wish we had a copy of the one you did for this project! You are a fantastic builder man, keep it up!-Mark

It is the best model I've ever seen but then again this isn't a model, IT'S A WORK OF ART!!!!

I consider every modeller here that can open a box and put the pieces together an artist, and all our collective works make for one heck of an art collection.... Thanks for the compliment my friend

Holy cow. I just went through the whole thread and am completely speechless. I'm compenting to bump this up for everyone who hasn't seen it. Fantastic job. Perfect craftsmanship. Absolutely unreal work. I can't even find words that give this build justice. Wow.
