      Here's a progress shot of the soon to be released 40 dash. The pencil marks are where the proposed trim and separation lines go. The left side needs to be carved and reshaped and the brim over the lower part of the dash needs to be trimmed back. Plus, all the buttons and knowbs need to be added. Hope this is what everyone wants. I'm also going to make a 46 dash. If you've ever seen one, it too can go into the deuce.







      Let me know what you think. Be honest.

    Excellent start. Once you have the upper half fully shaped, I'd love to see it fit up into the cowl.

    The curve of the face looks great so far.

    Can't wait to see more of it.

    Glu, I think you said you were going to put mile high velocity stacks on the Vair, given any thought to a 6 legged tubing intake and a blower?:eek:

    Nope...not for that anyway. :D

    I'm gonna use the carbs but have baloney cut tube stacks on them. Not real tall...whatever looks right.

    I do plan to do a Hilborn FI manifold and stacks before too long. I've scratched plenty of parts for the small scale. But, stepping up to this scale has absolutely opened my eyes to how far I can take that.

    Yep. I'm just sittin' here tryin' to decide how I want to finish the interior in the rpu. I can't decide whether to go with a tuck and roll or keepin' it real simple and just doin' flat upholstered panels. Decisions, decisions...

    Yer closer I think...go bang on hfc's door and make him get up and do more to the dash! :D

    Thanks guys. I'll be working the left side today and doing some more contouring. Another thing I'll do when I do the instrument panel will be to make two separate inserts, one for the deluxe and one for the standard. When it's all cast, you can remove the trim to turn it from the deluxe into the standard. Thanks for a great thing Don. If it weren't for your encouragement and great example, I'd never even try to scratchbuild anything. Same thing goes for Stevie, Keith, Dan, Gluhead and all the rest of you guys. That's also why this site is so valuable and important to me. All of you guys have been my inspiration and have shared your secrets. Without that, the only detailing I'd be able to do is removing mold lines 40 Ford dash progress. . :o :o :o

    Here's another progress shot. It still needs more smoothing and polishing and trim work. This is made so it fits into the body onto the original plastic mounts. Because of the variations between individual bodies, you'll need to do some minor fitting, some BMF 40 Ford dash progress. work and some of the detail work. Still, it will have enough detail and inclusions to make it work well for any level of skill. I can't include everything because there are details that will not do well in a mold and cast technique. If anyone has questions or building problems, I'll make some kind of tutorial that will show how to add the final details. Again, let me know what you think here. I want to make sure I'm on the track all the way.
