Cool stuff Ted [smile]

although painting that engine bay is going to be tricky with everything in the way ...
unless of course this is just a dry fitting, in which case I'll shut up, haha [biggrin]

True. The nature of how I built it in place will require me to mask that section off, base paint, washes,dry brush, etc. same deal for the "interior" where all those cables, hoses, etc are like spaghetti. Lol.

Thanks! I'm really enjoying it. My background as a multimedia artist [amateur] helps as I cobble together diverse materials. Here are some pictures from today's work.

Thinking about stowing this project aside for a bit and throwing some attention to the Batmobile/Futura SIG build.

Thanks guys. Having my bench at the house has been fantastic. I do a lot of work very late at night/early morning. Dead quiet, no phone calls, etc. unfortunately my vallego putty and most all of my Mr Surfacer is dried up, rock hard. Guess it happened at the storage unit before I moved? Too hot? I can bring the Mr Surfacer back with some lacquer thinner. It's great for rust/corrosion along with pigments........I ramble!

Yesterdays work. I intend to use a few chrome parts from the car kit--the feature being the huge front grill and bumper. Problem? this is not a shiny chrome period in history. I used a bit of sanding, brushed on AMMONIA, some thin CA, and a bit of kicker to "ruin" the chrome but not so far that it was all gone. The old cars that I have photographed in the past have a combination of small bits of shiny chrome, dull silver areas, rust, and chrome peeling. This is what I was going for. Rust to be added later of course. small parts I put in a medicine cup of ammonia and removed when the chrome was ruined to my satisfaction. Next was the ruining of the headlamp covers. similar techniques. sanding, application of thin CA glue, then a drop of kicker, but more sanding. Of course, while current cars have plastic headlamp lenses and they oxidize, this car from 1957 would have been real glass---I just wanted the look, so I did it. Final little bit of work was using my leather punch to pop out some IP dials/gauges for a makeshift panel. more detail here later.

more work very early this AM.

welded on bars to mount the gearbox for the "legs", then I notched the ridge on the gearbox to fit the support bars. I did not just sand off the entire ridge of plastic because it is holding the top of the gearbox together.

Next is the beginning of the weapons systems. First thing is the battle deck to mount things on. stock styrene cut and glued on. Hint at some rockets that will be mounted. Yes, there will be a flat platform and pylons. probably throw in some wiring and a control box. Russian rockets from my stash box are the choice. One engine picture showing an addition to the top of the motors of a couple of pieces that were chrome. Soaked them in ammonia. the chrome comes off but not the undercoating of varnish. it would take longer to remove the varnish but since they will be painted, no need to spend the time/effort, right?

beginning to put together a mini gun for the side opposite the rockets. Dowel cut to length, two thick styrene discs cut to match diameter of dowel, then taped down securely. Finally, added a brass sleeve for more support as I drill the holes for the mini gun barrels. Once the drilling is finished, the disc pieces must be sanded to match the dowel. the brass barrel will be cut to make other parts of the gun barrelling. more details to be added of course. the mini gun images include are NOT MY WORK, just reference pictures to inspire

Ted...This project is certainly interesting and a lot of scratch building.  I'm looking forward to seeing it develop into a completed vehicle.

Thanks guys! I am having a blast after being shut down for about a year. There is a lot of scratch building, greeblies, and mods of the kit. I have brought in parts from 3-4 other kits [from my stash] as well as items from boxes of sprue, odds and ends. Anything I think might ever be useful is collected [seriously--within reason--OK?, mostly small stuff]. Today was all about the weapons platform that crosses the car body, scratch building a mini-gun platform, the mini-gun, and ammo box. I still need to scratch an ammo belt. The other side of the weapons platform was the rocket pylon work. I found some additional Russian rockets and will have a total of 6 on the build.

In the final pictures you will see two bombs. They do not belong to the car. They will be in the diorama base--I wonder what they will represent? Hmmmmm......this is all for today gentlemen.

I will be setting this build aside for a bit to work on finishing the Batmobile/Futura build.

BTW, in the third montage there is an addition that I did not point out in my other text above. I am sure you might have wondered about it? See if you can find the add-on? Thanks guys!

Fantastic work so far Ted. 
Is the thing with the holes in it the add-on ?. Something so the driver doesn't burn themselves on the Gatling gun.
