Chevy Six

Recommended Posts

I've been working on this for a while now and just got it finished.

It's a 1/8 scale scratch built prototype of a Chevy inline six.

I've wanted one since I got into big scale and since it didn't exist I made one.

Wrong direction Junkman. Ya gotta look up for inspiration.

It's kinda like the old joke about the stone carvers elephant,

"I just take a big block of stone and remove everything that doesn't look like an elephant".

Got a little side tracked and started an old timey short rail.

Using the Lindy Exterminator kit as a starting point.

I shortened the frame 4.5 inches and mocked it up with the six.

I'll post a new thread when I get a little further along.

Frame is done with new motor mounts for the six.

Heck, Herm! I was waiting for the scratchbuilt '38 Chevy Coupe! Love that 'shortshot' rail! I had a 1:1 built from some 3" conduit, an old flathead digger...gave it to my partner, built a 122" for that flatmotor...with 4130 tubing this time! My Bonneville oartner and I were putting on some weight, and had to Porta-Power stretch the width of the cockpit rollcage 3" to fit us!

Models can be as thin as when we were young...we don't have to 'put them on'!

Nice "Stovebolt"!!!
