  2. this turned out beautiful! nice to see a street rod version I've got to finish my 41 willys from drag to stock.
  3. some more progress on the chassis. decided to try and make a rack and pinion. i was pretty happy with the result also made some more tubes for the firewall. finished the lower control arm mouts and made some motor mounts and a new motor plate. finally able to remove the jig for the engine. started making a front spoiler for the body and finally can set on all four wheels without the jig thanks for looking! comments welcome
  4. really good looking maverick. nice detail and paint. overall a really clean build!
  5. yeah just some styrene stock to make it. I did have a casually that got glue everywhere ? you'd really never guess seeing your builds thats for sure thanks! the wheels and tires are from futurattraction. they are called Billet Specialties Comp7 scott really makes top notch stuff!
  6. CT, I love this build. its so out of the ordinary but you've nailed it. ive come back to look at it a few times and have noticed something new each time. definitely one of my favorites. you do excellent work. jason
  7. CT, your detail and overall build is outstanding it really has that SO-CAL / salt flats look. this is wicked cool! jason
  8. Francis, the amount of skill you have into this build is just amazing. your atention to detail is remarkable. a true craftsman. always look forward to your progress as it inspires me and others to build. jason
  9. thank you for all the wonderful comments everyone! I made a jig to make control arms so they match. will also use it on future builds. after a control arm was made I made a few mounting points and set it up to see the result. still need to make more mounting points and the other control arm. most likely a plate for the middle of the arm too.
  10. hello Steve! this form is inspiring to say the least. there are so many helpful people here it really makes you strive to be better. having met some of the members at shows and swap meets as well as having the support and help from everyone here are really friends to me.

  17. steve, from what I know they are painted a basic color like white or grey then the livelry is a vinyl wrap. the weathering on the inside and chassis was done with weathering power. I used grey and black powder lightly brushing it across the surface then blew off the excess. added a little at a time until I was happy. thank you for your comment and I hope this helps!
  18. tamiya mustang GT-4 finished. this kit was really nice and fun to build some nice detailing and some plumbing really makes it. I have forgotten to sand the tires though so I'll have to fix that. but I've already purchased another kit to build and might have to get more. it seemed to just fall together awesome kit dindt use the kit carbon fiber as I wanted to do the front splitter and canards so I used scale motorsports carbon fiber so everything matched thanks for lookin!
