Hey folks, I've been thinking about starting this topic for a while. Seeing some more of you guys' incredible work lately has spurred me on to actually do it. I've searched around, and so far I haven't found an existing thread, but if there is one already I apologize.

So rules are:

1. Post images of parts you've scratch built, be it an oil filter or an entire car. A short description of each part would also be helpful

2. Have fun

3. Please refrain from debating about the scratch built/kit bashed thing here

4. Have more fun

5. If you believe your part to be scratch built, then please post it

6. Have even more fun

7. If you believe a particular part to not be scratch built, then please smile, scroll on, and enjoy your day

8. You're not going to believe it, but you need to have more fun

Sorry about the lengthy list of rules, but it really is important to have fun :D Enjoy the eye candy people :D

Can't wait to see all the amazing things you guys have made :)

Good to see pics again of the scratch built components for the 80 Camaro.

Very impressive scratch building skills you have for sure.

You really need to get back to that build and finish it up mate.

This is the engine I built for a replica of The Ramcharger's High & Mighty. The intake and the exhaust are both scratchbuilt.

SDC13379-vi.jpg

Here is the interior that I built for the High & Mighty, all scratchbuilt except for the pedals, shifter and belt buckles.

Okay, I'll play. We should see some cool stuff in this thread.

SM465 and NP205, all scratch'd with the exception of 2 small considerably modified bits of kit parts on the transfer case (you can see the leftover chromey bits on them). Just to be clear, it's the stuff behind the bellhousing.

72Blazer_SM465NP205_12-vi.jpg

72Blazer_SM465NP205_10-vi.jpg

GM Heavy Duty steering knuckle and axle housing (3rd member is a kit part).

72Blazer_Dana44_HDknuckle_01-vi.jpg

Everything out to the backing plate is scratched on this one...axle, spindle, steering arm, rod ends, etc.

Red41Willys_04-vi.jpg

Everything on (and including) this frame, except for the 3rd member. But you can barely see that sticking out in front of the housing, so we'll just say the whole thing. :D

Dodge_Flip_RearEnd_22-vi.jpg

How 'bout a scratch'd pickup box for a 1/8 '32?

1_8_32Ford_49-vi.jpg

Or an interior for the same?

1_8_32FordInterior_13-vi.jpg

Or some injection for a 409. Technically this isn't entirely scratch'd...it has 3 PE pieces. :P

The center cross member was all scratch built with the exhaust also being done. Each of the exhaust clamps was also scratch built and bolted in place. 387863_4481601571929_580310307_n.jpg

The spline rear swaybar and rearend is all scratch built, The center pig was put into resin so it could be a better working part with the brass and plastic to emboss the work. The only thing on this model so far that is a (Kit) part was a frame, Windows and interior tub. Every thing els is being scratch built or put into resin so it can be changed and then made to what is needed on the car.

You can go over and see it being done under "Runt"

I'll add to the mix.

Same build has a scratchbuilt wheelie bar assembly, made from styrene and aluminum tubing and four link rods and front brackets. The remainder of the rear suspension is resin cast, kitbashed parts and ballpoint pen springs.

DSC04936-vi.jpg

Another scratchbuilt chassis for a second build. This one also has some added photo-etch pieces attached.

DSC00505-vi.jpg

Same build also has a scratchbuilt wheelie bar setup made from styrene tubing and small sheet pieces. The rear end itself is more resin.

DSC00518-vi.jpg

This chassis is scratchbuilt for a wheelstander project.

The wheelie bar assembly is also scratched minus the kitbashed crossmember piece.
