Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

As promised and for those who are interested, I am posting some pics of another of my previous completed build.

I didn't want to overload the site with all the same photos on 2 threads so you can see all the photos that were posted in the VIP section using the following link:

Take care, Francis

Hi Francis!

I remember this built... In person, I can report that it requires about half an hour to glimpse most of the details. Great!

One question for you: I see you installed the famous ACCEL high energy coil. When I look at the pictures, it reminds me that somehow, I always felt this specific coil wa slightly "out of scale", as if it was intended for 1/20 or at least, a larger scale... 

You have experienced it, what is your opinion?

Thanks Claude!

I bought these ACCEL coils several years ago from Replicas & Miniature Company of Maryland and they were sold for 1/24 and 1/25 scale but yes I think they are a bit off scale.

However, I remember that these super coils were very big (I had one under the hood of my 'Cuda 340) and I would be curious to have another real one in hand and check its actual dimensions.

For the moment I no longer use them on my projects because as you know, my under hoods are quite full and I need all the space available for the shiny parts...

Take care, Francis

Stunning! The machined metalwork takes it to another level.

Thanks Nigel, you can see more pictures in the WIP section. However, I forgot to take pictures of all stages of the build, it was a pretty quick build in my standards, I would say...

Take care, Francis

Another amazing and mind-blowingly detailed and well done masterpiece!! I continue to be in awe of the skill and patience involved in these awesome pieces of machinery you build!

Thanks for your kind comments Craig!  Yes, it does require a little patience, but it makes things easier when you love what you do and are inspired by the subject!  Glad you like it!!!

Take care, Francis
