Those pressboard bucks you made should hold up to at least a few panels. I would love to see this in copper sheets, soldered. Maybe make a few extra panels to force ageing and patina? either way, awesome!

    you could try the foil idea but I don't think you will get the clean look you are after. it will want to wrinkle bad under vacuum. I feel the styrene would be the optimum choice.



    you should be able to solder it just fine my only concern is heating it without warping the panel but if the material is fairly thick you should be fine. I've seen it done many times on other models.





    I completely agree. the aluminum I use would be a waste on this as I would not want it to show damage. Copper or even annealed brass sheet would work great with the bucks you already have. if you use something like .015 or .020 you should be able to shape it easily over the wood bucks but you might need to eliminate some of the smaller details like the hinges but they could always be added later and give an even better look. Material that thick would also resist denting once formed.

    Keep it up!
    Huge thanks guys.. Your pushing me in the right direction and tons of ideas.
    After cleaning body shell up for 4 plus hours last night.. I had lots of time thinking threw the different steps that could be used and involved.
    See what comes around of it all here shortly.

    Lovely work sir. But we've come to expect that from you.
    Thanks "guy"
    It's been an interesting build for me.... Bout chucked it in the ole scrap bin twice as I wasn't to happy with a lot of different things with it. Seems to be cleaning up better then thought.
    Next Body should be tons better.

    Huge THANK YOU Rick.
    I seriously watched your 1977 Ford build twice, for the inspiration..Always fires me up to get building and carving.
    I would love to see you create something along these lines. You capture the movements and lines of your Builds so beautifully.

    Nothing wrong with your skills, these are just amazing pieces what you create. RC art on it's most beautiful form! Im sure this will keep good company for rocks at Smiggins Folly - BTW How would some pieces of the world's fines granite look at Whiskey Hill?
    Just let me know and we put the rocks rolling!

    On another note, there could be a market (huge market) for narrow vintage spoke wheels and tires. Interested to se what you finally come up with!

    Thanks Halme..
    Whiskey hill was blown up this early spring... It's still needing lots of attention and about a yard more of dirt moved.
    I'll be back on it shortly.
    Rocks cost lots of money from Over seas I here...ahahaha.
    Thanks for the jester .. Save your coin my friend.

    As for the Little car.. I'm just picking it apart horribly. Some of my worst work I feel.
    Hoping n00b can beat it into submission... and make something out of it.
    I shot it already... Put it out of it's misery...lol.
    Pics coming.
    Thanks again my friend.

    Honestly, I think it's amazing. If I had made that I'd be so proud. I can't wait to see how the next one turns out.

    Thanks guys.
    I'll build a floor for it and a few other smalls before shipping.

    As for the next version.
    I will start from the ground up. Chassis first.
    Brass..Lots of brass. That should give me time to figure which direction I will go for body.
    Bullitt should have the wheels ready for printing by then too.
    Why I'm not very happy with the way it turned out.
    This was really good practice and helped figure a lot of things out for size and fitment.
    Very eager to get going on the new one.


    More soon.
