      Scratch built 32 Ford 1:10 32 Ford.

      Chassis is almost there, having trouble finding details for the body so what I'm comming up with is best guess.

      Well here aer a few pics to start off with.

    What kind of metal are you using? That doesn't look like brass which seems to be the norm for scratchbuilding.

    Looks like a great start.

    Thanks guy's, yes it is steel and if all goes well the body will be metal as well but we will see how far I can get that.

    Hi there it's been a while, here are some up dates

    Still no steering linkege yet, the rear end has what is called a Yota diff under it ( it may be a tad wide but i'm thinking of moding the rear wheels to cover the axle ends and create a wider tire wall.

    I'm very happy so far with the body, i made myself a mini English wheel set up to get the curves in the panels.

    Next task is to build the front grill, then set up the 1/8 brushless motor & drive line. When thats in place i can then finish the fire wall and the rest of the body.

    Dosen't sound like much but I'm not in a rush...

    It's been a while but it's looking good. Any way we can get to see the English wheel and how you made it? That would be very appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    That reminds me of my old english wheel... Its still sitting outside waiting to be welded! When its finally welded and painted, I will post pics of mine, so you can compare with Bryan's. Mine is probably going to be weak, meh, lets hope it does its job!

    well this is my version of an english wheel, it was a test run and it sort of worked so I kept going. its not stiff enough in the frame so the next one will be made out of much heaver steel. as for the wheels they are turned down bolt heads basicly its made from scrap in my shed.32 Ford-sdc12897-jpg32 Ford-sdc12898-jpg
