That was the movie Chris but it was pretty much just a loooong episode anyway.

Here's one I built earlier.  The idea was Bruce Wayne upgraded and sent the old model to his cousin in Melbourne, Wayne Bruce* who used it for a little street racing.

Its the glue kit with the wheels replaced, a RHD conversion and a Ford Cammer engine which is a very snug fit.


* I mean, come on.  Bruce Wayne?  Is there any more Australian name than that?

Thought for the day.  If you are ever attacked by a mob of clowns, go for the Juggler...

Dear oh dear  :banghead: :banghead: Took my great niece to circus in South Shield Friday. I've always though there's something odd about clowns and those in this one just confirmed it. Kid's loved it though but I miss the animals.

Oh yes, love that Cammer engine.  :thumbsup:

Plug wires are relatively easy.  The trick is to get the firing order correct.

First stage PSR on Project Dehavira Canabera today followed by a shot coat of primer.  Not having black wings makes it a bit less batty.

Also got the second shade of blue onto the zenrat industries Ki-46iii.

Yep, although it's been so long I've forgotten the bang order for my old cars. Used to do 90% of the maintenance on my cars myself, back in the day.

You really need to see the top of the distributor to tell.  I have a crib sheet I use which has firing order diagrams for most american V8 engines.
But really, as long as they are not "parted down the middle" then they look right and no-one's really going to check.

I did a dual dizzy drag racing 1967 Hemi Satellite once, from an MPC kit I think, and all those plug wires drove me NUTS!

I've never done a dual dizzy kit.  I've got a bagged Top Fuel engine in the car stash engines box.  Maybe I should shoehorn it into something inappropriate for the Sciffi GB?

Don't, that way lies madness.  ;D

Mind you, I like your Sci-Fi GB idea, under the hood (or through the hood...) of a Golf maybe?

I've already done similar silly things to a  Bond Bug.  ;D

Love the Bug.  What chassis did you use?

It's the roadster chassis from the Tony Nancy Revell 22 Jr dual kit, with a Ford Cammer engine from the original IMC Ford GT40 kit.

But the trick bit is that the body is 1/32 scale and all the rest is 1/24.  ;) ;D

Scale-o-rama to the max!

Oh yeah, I built it in 1972............  :o
