New drag 1/24th-1/25th photo etch parts

I received a cool looking set of PE parts from the etcher recently. There are clutch/brake/accelerator pedal assemblies, gusset and chassis tab sets, ring and latch detail for my 4-gallon upright fuel cell, hand brake/door handle/chute lever sets. I designed a PE snorkel top for my Fairmont hood that turned out really nice, and there are also Pro Stick/Quarter Stick levers and consoles. I'm not happy with the console cover (not shown), which needs some redesign. The next round of consoles will not have the pin hole (the lever pivot will be completely hiden inside the console), but they're available also. If you're interested in anything, let me know. Scott

Very cool, will have to pick some of these up from you at the Heartland show this year. Really Like the quarter stick, pedal assembly and the handbrake PE sets.

This way I will have plenty of stuff, when I go back to 1/24-1/25 to finish up my other projects.

Sounds good Bart. I'm hoping I'll be much better set up, parts- and experience-wise, the next go-'round... SP

This is some very cool stuff. I am interested in some of your parts. Do you have a price list and pics rest of what you have? any chance that you will be doing any of this in 1/16th scale???

Scott did an awesome job of building that body and he had it cast. He even has the tub/chassis for it, and was available to purchase at one time. The only reason I know, is he had it at the Heartland show last year.

Thanks for your compliment, Roger. I appreciate it!

Derrick, I hope they're something that will appeal to the drag/hot street crowd. Hopefully more still will be coming down the pike.

Dom, thanks for the good words. I like it too. It needs some refinement, but then I'm a perfectionist when it comes to a lot of this stuff and it drives me nuts! :-) As far as the Fairmont is concerned, it's been a long, long-term project of mine. I actually mastered the original body several years ago. It's gone through fixes, iterations, some damaged masters that had to be rebuilt, etc., etc. (and I'm a slow worker and get side-tracked easily) I am hoping to have them available before too much longer with some different hood choices, including flat, vintage 70s-80s boundary layer snorkel-style, such as shown in the pics, and a monster cowl hood. I'm reworking the floor pan so it's more authentic to a 1980-ish vintage pro stocker, i.e., proper location for main hoop,etc. I've also developed a whole series of add-on sub assembly parts packages, such as multi-media strut front end, multi-media narrowed 9-inch rear end, PE 4-link bracket kits with bars and formed wire rod ends, PE Lenco lever sets, along with a few other parts and pieces. I'm also working on getting dimensionally correct 14x32 drag slicks made, set up for the smaller 15-inch style wheel and crowned Cragar Super Tricks of that vintage.

Chris, see above for answers to some of your questions. I have a skeleton website posted, but I haven't gotten much in the way of "guts" published yet. I work full-time and have concerns about opening the door and having little control over orders. I've been selling on eBay with good success, but I'm really wanting to expand. Pics of other parts I have include:

Lenco levers, mount, spacers:

Revell top sportsman retrofit PE 4-link kit (20 main pcs):

Holley Dominator w/booster detail set (most are cast in white resin, but the pic Dominators are aluminum metallic powder-coated) :

Assembled (current version doesn't come with motor plate)

That covers most of the main kits I'm offering. Scott

I think one of those 4 link brackets will be on order shortly. I'm doing a outlaw 10.5 car and have been looking for a nice PE 4 link setup.

If its an option, please do a stock tub/chassis for the Fairmont. I know a few guys who would snatch it up if it had that.

Bart - thanks for explaining about the Fairmont. Lord willing, it will be available again soon in its current configuration...

Chris, I forgot to address your question about 1/16th stuff. I would entertain that plan at some point. I feel like I've got so many irons in the fire right at the moment it probably won't happen super-soon, but I've given it some thought - and will continue to do so.

Dom - the current body is a pro stock version with stretched, stock heigh rear wheel well openings, narrowed, blended bumpers, no fuel filler door and the extended hood (cowl incorporated into the rear of the hood). I do intend to do a stock body version that will probably use the AMT/Ertl Fox Mustang as a donor. I can't even begin to offer a time frame for that, but yours isn't the first comment I've heard about the need for a "stock" car. SP

Hey Scott... no worries I just had to ask the question on the 1/16 stuff. I totally understand having alot of other things going on. I need to shoot you a pm of some items I would like to get from you. i have been super swamped with work so not when I will get the list to you but I will. thanks again.

1/16 PE stuff would definitely be cool, only problem would be the thickness. You have to back everything with styrene. Easier to buy the parts, scan in and scale them up and cut them out of Aluminum yourself. Then use the original parts for your smaller builds.

Hey Mike (and Chris),

As you know Chris has already made the inquiry. For sake of conversation, what kinds of stuff do you guys have an interest in having made? The hand brake and lever set would obviously be one for the fuel cars, and rotors would/could be another for anything 1/16th, throttle linkage, etc. If/when I get into this, I'd like some good profile images of what you'd want them to look like.

Thickness may or may not be a problem, depending on the part. The PE folks I'm working with can get material all the way up to ~.060", so in theory, something all the way up to 1" in 1:1 could be produced. Food for thought...
