  1. Hey guys, did the next testprint by myself and I´m really pleased with the look. I hope you´ll like it too. Here´re the new pics... And some pics for comparison with the kit parts... I even uploaded the parts already and they are now available at the following link: https://www.shapeways.com/product/PDGTY742K/1-25-1969-cuda-tailpanel?optionId=222013002&li=shops Once again thank you all, especially Bob, for your patience. Rico
  2. Hey guys, I know there are many of you waiting for the tailpanel and I thank you all very much for your patience. After a long time full of work I now have the first testprint in hand. There are some minor issues because the inner panel isn´t wide and the scriptings are not tall enough. I will try to fix this now in a short timeline to make these parts available. And because I now have my own 3d printer I can do the next testprints on my own. Anyway here are two pics of the first testprint. Hope you´ll like it. Best regards, Rico
  3. Four weeks again since my last update and there´s some great progress on every build I can see here. So here´s mine... I´m still hanging on the details. First of all I started wiring the MSD ignition boxes. I choosed a place on the passengers side firewall for mounting them... ... then, because both kits doesn´t have one, I started scratchbuilding my own Optima battery... ... and an ignition coil. After that I started wiring the engine... ...painted the Optima... ... and this weekend I finished the ignition wiring
  4. Thank George for his help.
  5. Found what I was looking for. Thank´s George...😉
  6. Hi George, thanks for your help. Looks like this would be a good choice for what I want to create. Is there any chance to get this one anywhere without buying the whole kit? Hi Hakån, thanks for the infos.
  7. Hi Roger, this would be great. But only the stock engine. Don´t know if there is another 327 engine in any other kit...
  8. Hey fellow modelers, like the title says I´m in need of a Chevy 327 engine. I prefer the single carb setup like this one. (picture from: https://www.69pace.com/2/1969engine327_210.htm) Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you all in advance. Rico
  9. Thank you guys, I will give it another try...
  10. Hello guys, I know there are many threads in here about hinging doors, hoods and trunk lids. But all of the hinged parts are nearly straight on the hinged side. My problem is that the trunk lid I want to get work isn´t straight. I already tried the tipps out of the forum but nothing worked like I wanted. Any help would be much apprecciated. Thank you all in advance. Rico
  11. #25 - Update... I wasn´t really happy with my first casting so I gave it a second try. This time I´ve choosen the wrong position for the overfloating pipes. But because I placed them on the lower front area of the seats I was able to fix the issues. They won´t be to be seen once assembled. I also tried to cast the Camaros steering wheel. For my second casting ever I´m now pleased with the results. Here are the pics... After fixing the issues at the seats there was time for some color again... (Revell africabrown matt / glossy white mixed 1:1)
  12. Thanks Pat, I always enjoy your builds. Your weathering skills are awesome. I´m still in the learning process.
  13. Hey guys, there are some great projects going on here. It´s nearly two months ago now since my last post. There were a lot of work and family business to do. But at the last two weeks I had some time to get some things done on my "Monte ´pala" 🤣. First of all the stock Impala seats were not sporty enough to me so I searched my kits stash and found something better. These are from the Jada Camaro Concept Kit and will be casted. Then I thought about doing the oil line routing for the first time ever because oil pumps without oil pipes are useless (first try with 0.4 mm wire).
  14. The race goes on... Nice progress here. @pete75: I´m feeling with you. Wish you luck for the second body. @misha: Your Camaro is looking good. Nice details at all. I have done some things too over the last days. Cutted out the trunk lid but on the rear I did a fail 😡 and cutted it above the taillights. Here´s stage 1. Stage 2: corrected it and did the water drip rails... My wife (and me too) wasn´t happy with the Monte Carlo´s roll cage because it would be seen through the rear side windows. So we (I) decided to scratchbuild a new o
