Scale I Build

Found 3 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. Recent Woody posts encouraged me look to see if I could find a thread where modelers could post their Woodie builds. This may have been done before but my search did not turn up a thread devoted to Woodie/Woody builds so I have started this one. I think it would be cool to see lots of Woodies in one place, like the 1/1 annual Wavecrest Woodie Meet in Encinitas California.
  3. Here's another of my paintings. Acrylic on illustration board.
