Scale I Build

Found 6 results

  1. I actually started this build several months ago, and have been posting progress reports on a thread started by Paul Payne titled “Truck Boat and Trailer” as a parallel build to his. Paul is a much faster builder than I am, and he has completed his awesome build. I encourage anyone interested to take a look at Paul’s build in progress, as well as his completed combo in the Under Glass area. meanwhile, I’m going to transfer some of my build details from Paul’s thread, and continue from here. I started my build by purchasing a Dumas Chris Craft Cobra kit (which I found extremely over priced for a box of sticks and a set of plans, but I digress). I have assembled the hull, and stopped until I decide how I want to proceed. What I have in mind, is sort of an Americanized version of the Riva Aqurama Lamborghini. I have in my possession, three 3D printed Chevy LS3 V-12s. I am planning to use two in the boat, and one in the tow vehicle. For that, I have chosen one of the 47 Chevy kits from Galaxie Limited, combined with a convertible conversion kit for it from Jimmy Flinstone, and I am planning to install wood on the sides and deck on the order of a 48 Ford Sportsman. I haven’t given much thought to the trailer yet, but I imagine I’ll make something out of brass tubing, as I am comfortable working with that material, and it should be quite strong. I’m just in very early stages of this project, still trying to figure out how to mount the engines in the boat, with marine cooling, water intake, exhaust, what the power output to the propeller shaft looks like….I’m adding two pics of my current project status, and also one of the Riva Aqurama Lambo engines installed.

  2. MOTOR AUTHORITY: Ferrari's record-breaking V-12-powered race boat is for sale Dupont Registry: One-of-a-kind: Historic Ferrari Race Boat for Sale Business Insider: This one-off, record-holding boat has a Ferrari race engine and a $12 million price tag — see the 1952 Arno XI Years ago, I saw a resin kit of this boat in a catalog, but didn't have the money to buy one. On a hunch, looked at eBay and saw that several craftsmen are making wood scale models of this boat (picture), in various scales. The engine is from the 375 series, with twin superchargers, still holds the record of 150 MPH (in class). I'm not into boats as a rule, but this one is too cool to not show y'all.
  3. Looks like the AMT 3'n1 Customizing Boat kit is going to be reissued as kit #1056:
  4. I did a full build up of the AMT Customizing Boat kit re-released this fall. Fit is still just fine, no issues at all with assembly. I might buy another one to do the custom runabout. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkP3izvSh84
  5. I'm pretty sure it's been mentioned a few times this boat is close to 1/18 scale, but it's listed as 1/25, so we'll see once someone can measure it in hand.
  6. It's been quite some time since I was here, but it looks like this drag racing forum sure picked up speed! I could remember an echo in here, now there's folks taking and posting 1/16th (my fav) Just a shout out to two incredible time consuming builds by Mooneyz and Vintagedragfan....the Calif. Charger and the Army F/C are UNBELIEVABLE......makes me want to sell a car and buy a lathe, but then I would NEVER come out of the shop. I thought I knew detail, but I don't I was lucky enough to grow up in the golden years of drag racing, and my dad worked with a lot of racers, our home track was Fremont, and I saw ALL the iconic cars of the day....I am also old enough to actually have bought the Revell 1/16th models off the shelf when they first came out. It is SO good to see how many people have found this hobby again.... Anyway, to get to the reason of the post. I have been stockpiling parts and pieces, and am feeling the need to start building again, so I thought I would hollar out to any folks with photos of a few cars. Mike Sullivan's Fiat Fuel Altered (the blue one) Prudhomme's or McEwen's Hot Wheels FED's (Snake - Mongoose - for search purposes) Howard Cam's Rattler (the orange FED that slixx made the 1/16th decal set for) What I have is a good collection of drag cars....all sorts, floppers and rails mostly, name drivers, unique cars, I have some I have taken myself, but most are from years of collecting from the NET.... I also have very high quality digitals of drag boats and a lot from the pits for details if anyone is doing a drag boat model.... anyway, so good to see the hobby going well, and I look forward to watching a few builds take place..... ps.....has anyone done the JT-Graphics 1/16th Hot Wheels Snake or Mongoose build? (that's why I would love some photos of those cars!)
