Scale I Build

Found 11 results

  1. New project, Canadian record holding Front engine Top Fuel Dragster, Being built for the owner as close to museum scale as my talents will allow. This is my first brass chassis car and will require custom body panels and a sizeable amount of scratch built parts. 215" Don Long Chassis, 392 Chrysler Hemi based engine, being modeled as it was raced as opposed to it's current configuration as a cackle car / nostalgia fuel car. I will be posting pictures of the build as well as pictures of the real car and it's restoration for reference. I hope you enjoy watching the progress and if there a
  2. So I had this cool 3D printed Lincoln Zephyr V12 Flathead, with Arden heads by Ron Olsen through Shapeways, and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it. I knew it needed to be some kind of hot rod that would show off the motor, and I had in my head that I wanted to do a build using as many brass and aluminum scratch made parts as possible. I’ve been intrigued by the Speedster style hot rods for a while, and I thought a boat tail might be kind of cool, but I also wanted it to be low. I built up the motor to the point where I could use it for mock ups, and started to mock up some frame
  3. The Project So Far... This project started as a Pocher Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Kit in 2011, but has grown into a mostly scratch build in brass. I thought I’d post a few images of the build for the fine Modelers on this forum. Very few of the Pocher parts remain; the engine block halves are the original Pocher parts, but most other engine assemblies have been cast in white metal or built from scratch. The terrific Pocher wire wheels are being used as well as many metal fasteners. This car is an amalgam of my favorite features from several of the surviving examples. The cockpit panel is alu
  4. Here a replica of a Top Fuel car from 1966. This is a scratch build, using original Don Long plans, and built to exact 1:25 scale. This is the 165" version from 1966. All metal, brass chassis and body panels, complete motor and Olds rearend, as well as rear wheels are cast nickel alloy parts. Fronts are laced, silver plated copper wire soldered to copper rims. Front axle is 2mm steel piano wire (wire is actually used for spring coils, but our hobby calls it piano wire). Paint is a mix of pink, white and dark flesh fingernail polish, with a top coat of clear gel fingernail paint.
  5. For over twenty years, I have been pondering and preparing to build a replica of The Surfers dragster. I have now been educated by one Roger Lee as to why my two initial attempts to build the chassis were not right. Turns out that the things I'd read, and heard about the chassis, over the years, didn't provide the whole story. The plans from the old Popular Hot Rodding article are only useful for the front-half of the car, and for the roll cage, itself. The back-half, previously unbeknownst-to-me, was actually a copy of the chassis that Rod Stuckey built for Karamesines (not, as is most common
  6. I just dug out this project I have barely looked at in nearly 20 years. I never had a decent camera, when I was working on it, so I figured I'd take some new photos of it--the way they came out, you might not suspect that I have a decent camera, now! The chassis is brass tubing and rod. The nose and tail sections are K&S tin sheet that I formed over wood bucks, then soldered. Rust is fairly evident, especially on the tail section. The rest of the body panels are tooling aluminum (before I discovered 5"X7" aluminum flashing), and would be re-created in flashing, should I ever decide to
  7. https://whulsey.smugmug.com/Cars/2012-02-04-Motoring-Through/ Guess I'll post a show with some of my type of cars. Wouldn't post the show I wanted to guess the photos are too big. Is the limit around 3mb on size? Oh well, this is always a good show with lots of stuff I like.
  8. Hi all Unusually question. I am starting a new project with some brass finish parts. I have been experimenting with spray can brass (specifically Rustoleum) but not getting the "metallic shine" I desire. I know that Alclad has a high shine brass, but I do not have an airbrush. I do have those disposable Preval sprayers. The Alclad instructions call for it to be sprayed at 15-20 psi. The Preval sprayers go at around 60-70 psi. Anyone have any idea what would happen spraying the Alclad at 60-70 psi? Thanks for any information
  9. He's one of my current projects. I got this MM GTB in a box lot with a broken axle and seat. The tractor is a rather rare 1/16 scale model and in the $200.00 range so It needed to be saved.
  10. This car has been sitting in a case for a couple years now, but I want to actually build something for me for a change. So i'm going to try to get this and a couple other cars done in time for NNL 2012. This car is going to take some work. It was an early prototype that i used to test parts and work some things out. A lot of parts are going to have to be replaced throughout.. but it's a start.
  11. I built this car about a year and a half ago, but it's never been an MCM WIP, or shown in the Under Glass section. A couple of MCM regulars asked me if I had a few more pictures to share, so I thought that a mini WIP would provide them with some added pics and info on the car. So, to begin, I started with Revell's excellent 1:25th 40 Ford kit. The first order of business was to give it a hair cut. I sliced some Tamiya 6mm tape in half to create some ~3mm strips. These were used to remove a consistent scale 3" from the roof pillars. After adding some length back into the roof
