      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

1/8 Scale Short Rail

5 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Y'all have already seen the Chevy six and a mock up of the short rail I'm building so here's an update.

I got the motor bolted in place and the rolling chassis done. Also got the fuel injection / headers done.

Decided a diaphram fuel pump just wouldn't cut it so I made a high volume, belt driven one out of old kit parts.

Looks great! Nice detail work on that engine.

This is based on the Lindberg "Exterminator", right? Small world...I'm working on the very same kit myself (I posted some photos in "On the Workbench" a week or two ago).

After several major paint screw up's I painted it flat cast grey to match the frame.

A few more details and she's done.
