      As the Monogram Jag build is getting serious, I'm opening a new page with all the build steps...

      I'm experimenting with the images so I can show the text together with the pics, hope it comes out clear!

      Trying to make the rather dull and detail lacking Monogram block, many parts were added, following the prototype's drawings found in catalogs and pics sent by Ken and other good chaps of this Forum...

      In the next post we will begin showing all the scratchbuilt parts that will conform the block and engine as similar to the prototype as possible....

      In this build, I'm trying to emulate the Pocher criteria of assembling models, which better things up a lot!....

      See ya....

    Hour glass sand Jaguar Type E build (A -1) , wow, I would have never thought of that! I will give this a try on the Pocher Alfa engine block. Have tried many methods, but never thought of just adding too paint. Great tip. Your work on the Jag's engine block is just outstanding. Look forward to you postings. Rick

    Looks like you are off to a great start. If you need any detail shots let me know what areas and I will see what I have. Keep up the great work!

    Rick, you must use the airbrush Jaguar Type E build (A -1) with this technique to achieve an even textured surface...

    Cheers

    Thanks Mario, my airbrush Jaguar Type E build (A -1) has three sizes of tips, fine, med and wide. I also have the ability to control airflow, what tip and PSI do you recommend. Now for the funny question I am about to ask. Where in the world did you get this sand Jaguar Type E build (A -1) which must be extra, extra fine to mix w/paint and flow thru a airbrush Jaguar Type E build (A -1) ? I have seen this done on armor (tanks) in real life to give you a area to walk while wet and not slip off the vehicle. This too was applied with a airgun. Another great tip from a master builder. Thanks for your input, Rick.:)'PS: what is the ratio for mixing sand Jaguar Type E build (A -1) /paint?

    Now I really wish I had the Jag to do. This is going to be a great thread. I love what you did with the engine texture.

    Heres one of those post you wish was not true.........gave one away, mint. I thought the thing was too toy like. Happens to be the one car if I could have would be setting in my garage. I have tried to find again, the version with the racing decals: EBay>$200.00 and still being bidded on @ the time!!!!!!!!! Here will be another purchase in the future after seeing what Mario is doing with this racy gal.Rick PS: There was a fella in Canada that was making wire wheels for the Jag, I would kill to get ahold of, but you needed a loan to get a set! Now these on a Monogram Jag takes it to a Pocher status!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Of which Mario is doing so now.

    Use the wide tip and shoot from a distance....
    Mix sand Jaguar Type E build (A -1) & paint in increasing proportions starting with 25 % sand Jaguar Type E build (A -1) and do some test shooting in styrene Jaguar Type E build (A -1) , playing with the sand Jaguar Type E build (A -1) quantity, paint, distance, etc...I strongly recomend automotive acrylic Jaguar Type E build (A -1) lacquer Jaguar Type E build (A -1) for these experiments....fast drying stuff and strong as hell once cured...
    As for the sand Jaguar Type E build (A -1) origin, I broke one of my children's toy hourglasses and till now I have no remorses at all!!
    Think you can find these in toy stores out there and they should be cheap...............

    Happy experimenting!

    You da Man, Mario. I will take a trip to the local toy store, know just where to go to get just what you said. Boy that's a load off my mind, was eyeing that Italian Hourglass on the mantel, wife would not have been too happy about accident. Rick

    On the block, some parts are added to follow the prototype's characteristics....

    All the parts shown are not in the kit and have been scratchbuilt...


    Pic Nš 1 shows the right hand side of the block with the core plugs in place

    Pic Nš 2 shows the left hand side of the block showing some other core plugs...these were turned out in the lathe out of aluminum billet...

    Pics Nš 3 & 4 shows the block's water draining petcock, done from brass and steel (Lathe & mill work)...the fixing nut to the block is a 2 mm hex brass nut...the steel fawcett mouth was drilled before heat bending, to show the water exit....

    Pics Nš 5 & 6 shows a special block plug made from a 2 mm Allen bolt heavily machined and a 2 mm plain chromed washer...

    Pics Nš 7 & 8 shows left and right hand block plugs made from machined 00 - 80 hex brass bolts....

    The last 4 pics shows the block in the engine stand showing the new additions...

    Out freaking standing. If I were to just see the photos w/o words, I would think I was looking at a real engine block. No better compliment than that!!!!!!!!!!

    The front block breather, turned and milled from aluminum billet...attaching bolts are brass hex 00 - 90, machined on the lathe... (Pics Nš 1 to 4)

    For those tight spots, a miniature bolt tube wrench was devised and made from an aluminum knitting stick, (Stolen from wifey)...(Last 3 pics)

    Drill and tap for an Allen bolt whose hex recess fits your bolt's head....screw in stick, turn bolt's head as near to the hex recess as possible....knurl the other end, and Voil'a...a superb little tool!...you can make a set of these to suit different bolt sizes...

    Hope its useful....
