    Fellow members....
    This is the place to display your "finished entries" for judging and prize awards.
    Please post at least 6 photos of your entry along with your name and a description of what you have done, also any special details that you want to bring to the judges attention.

    This thread is for the judges to eyeball your "finished" entries, (no member chatter please) if you would like to post more than 6 pics, please put them in the gallery and refer the judges there or to the build thread if you did one one. The judges or Admin. may post or ask specific questions in this thread if they feel they need more info on your entry.

    If as the contest closes (the last week), you find that you are not able to finish your model in what have completed to eligible for one of the drawings.

  5. A few words about my model...95% scratch built SMC show/contest finished photos , using only chassis rails (extensively modified) and engine block from the Revell SMC show/contest finished photos kit. Extensive research on prototypes conducted prior to build, using magazines, aftermarket equipment catalogs and pictures taken at the Chicago Hot SMC show/contest finished photos Rod show in 2002.

    More than 300 parts were machined out of brass and stainless steel, then chrome plated SMC show/contest finished photos and assembled during a 2.5 year period. More than 500 bolts, nuts and connectors used throughout the model. Estimated 2,000+hours of work. Model won the highly coveted "Hermanos Rodriguez" prize as best car of show (of any scale) at the Mexican Nationals a couple of years back...since then, many improvements have been added.

    Engine is a modeled after a Roush 427, 560 HP, 540 lb-ft-torque, Shelby aluminum block, custom fuel injection and magna-blower. March serpentyne system, Tremec tranny and 9" rear end. The chassis is a dropped front axle version modeled after a Fatman custom piece, with Heidt's suspension and Billet Specialties parts throughout. Steering box is a modeled after a 140 series Vega box with a Flaming River column... the list goes on and on....

    Thanks for organizing this contest...I hope you enjoy my model ... it was a blast to build !!!!!

    Please visit my gallery for more pictures !!!!

    This is my entry a 1/8 scale Bat Rod I was going to build my Big Deuce as a rat rod but I remembered that I had an old 1/8 scale Batman model in my closet and thought why not. I added a bat cowl to the radiator housing and a fin to the trunk lid. I also got a lot of help from the good folks here at Scalemotorcars with Batmobile parts and some great advice.

    Well, unfortunately it looks like I'm going to run out of time on this one. My plan was to build the paper model first in its original scale of 1/30 to get a handle on the process since I hadn't ever built a paper model before, and then scale up the plans, add detail and build it in 1/12 scale. I managed to finish the small one, but haven't had time to get to the large scale version. I won't be eligible for the judging, but I figured I post what I have anyway. All in all, it was a fun project, although I must admit that working in paper is harder than it would seem. I ended up with a bit of a glue bomb SMC show/contest finished photos and some ragged edges, but I think it came out ok for my first one.

  9. Hello All,
    I have been working on and just got done with my Tamiya SMC show/contest finished photos Tyrrell. My kit was bought a long time ago after I found that this kit was available. Of course it got stuck in the "to build" pile for a long time. It was great to find out about this site and contest and this got the ball rolling. I've added turned aluminum intakes and tire valves. The engine and brake system has had all the plumbing SMC show/contest finished photos run. The seat belt hardware are resin SMC show/contest finished photos parts from Replica and Minatures of Maryland. I made my own seat belts. The color is a radio control paint made by practa that I felt was the closest to the color of the 1:1 SMC show/contest finished photos car.
    Now...... I seem to be haveing a little trouble posting pictures since I have not done it before and I should of tried this before. All my pictures are posted here..

    I'll be entering two and possibly three unfinished builds. These are show only, I'm not in competition.

    My first entry is this Willys coupe. Most of you have seen it before but for those who haven't, here are the details:

    ** 8th scale fibreglass body from MF. It will be fully tubbed with open trunk and doors.

    ** Modified TDR SMC show/contest finished photos Pro Street chassis. Modified IFS and front and center X members, custom
    rack and pinion, scratch built SMC show/contest finished photos drive shaft and pro street style cage.

    ** R/M wheels and tires.

    ** TDR SMC show/contest finished photos blown and carb'd 392 Hemi with rare MT valve covers, very rare GZ bellhousing, 1839
    Lenco and custom front and rear engine plates.

    This has been a long term project. The chassis is very near completion and will be painted and fully detailed soon. Next up is the engine build.

    My second entry is this Deuce. It is not in competition. So far, the build is as follows:

    ** R/M roadster body. Shaved door hinges and handles and modified cockpit belt line. Custom 40 Ford dash and Duval style windshield.

    ** R/M fully boxed chassis. Custom X members, modified TDR SMC show/contest finished photos IFS with custom rack and pinion, TDR SMC show/contest finished photos IRS with scratch built SMC show/contest finished photos Kugel style center section.

    ** Powered a TDR SMC show/contest finished photos Jag engine and Muncie style four speed. Engine will be heavily modified.

    ** Chris Garcia steel wire wheels custom built for this model and fitted with R/M tires.

    I've made very little progress and am fighting some suspension gremlins, but its been a fun build so far.

    Unfortunately, time has not been kind to me. I wish I could've gotten a bit further on the DS, but I stalled. I hope to continue soon though.

    But I do present hereby my work so far and it has been a struggle, with a capital S, this is just such a terrible kit.

    For more pictures; , I don't use the gallery here, sorry about that
