    The gate is open so post your work right here. Hope you like what you see. Welcome to all.

    Those are two seats I made for the deuce. The V8 on the top of the seat is the one that's in between the deuce lights on the bar.

    There are two different kinds of shocks in #6, one front and one rear. Yes they actually work. There is a pen spring inside.

    The axle is not the scratchbuilt part, it's the front spring setup. If you notice, the kit spring is located on top of the axle. In order to lower the front a bit, I relocated the spring to the axle level and behind it. You're looking at the rear of the axle.

    The Olds intake manifold was carved out of a solid block of styrene Official SMC Scratch builders Fantasy Weekend . The Edelbrock logo was done with a glob of wax and a small carver.

    Bronco hardtop and roof rack



    1/14 International 9400i (only the cab is scratchbuilt, the chassis is a Tamiya Official SMC Scratch builders Fantasy Weekend ) and 53-foot trailer with functional sliding tandems (I wanna see you do the mold box for the trailer, it's 46 inches long!)



    Inside the trailer

    Dashboard in the 9400i



    Wheels made from Easter eggs



    Spare wheel from scratch



    Brass sliding-tandem assembly

    That's enough, you get the idea.

    Here are pictures of the MASH helicopter. The main rotor turns and drives the tailrotor with gears in the transmission and also turns the engine cooling fan. This one was a bit of a challenge since everything is exposed and visible.


    The stretcher belts work and the stretchers are removable.


    A little closer look. The top of the gas tank was hammered using copper to get the small compond curves in it and be one piece. This is where copper has an advantage over brass being softer and more malable.


    Tail rotor gears; these are driven through a working 1/8" diameter universal joint to change direction up to the tail rotor.


    Here is the drive train assembly.



    Yes the dipstick works and if you look close you can see the marks on it.



    Here is a picture of the rotor head assembly detail.



    Cockpit image.


    Here are the batteries and the cover hold down clamps work.


    This was a fun build and I enjoyed the challenge of all the little problems that had to be solved. This was my first major mostly brass project and where I really got a handle on working with brass.

    I'm really glad to see that chopper posted. It's one truly brilliant work of art. I'm learning so much about working with brass from just looking at your work. It inspires me to go further.
