      I decided the time has come for me to build yet another 1/12 scale Super Seven, (it has been almost six years since I finished my last one), the only “problem” is I don’t have any more kits of them.
      If I counted correctly, this will be my 7[SUP]th[/SUP] 1/12 scale Seven.
      So instead of shopping for one, I grabbed a sheet of brass and started cutting, beating and bending.
      I am not sure why I started with the hood first, it just seemed like a good idea.

    The jack on the right is the one I will use on the model. As you can see it is significantly smaller than the test jack, (70% of the size) on the left. It also is made of brass, but with a few machined aluminum parts too. Furthermore it has a pattern cut into the top pad that the larger one does not have.


    It also works the same way as its big brother.


    There is a fork on the handle that fits into the receiver. You can see the knurling I put on the handles too.

    It was acid etched into the part (just like the other details) when I made the "kit". The design was drawn and applied as a resist to the brass. The acid did the rest, (except for assembly...).

    And thanks very much guys!

    I need to add the seat mounting points to the frame, and needed seats to fit those to. These seats are items I cast from a master I made for my last Seven. I did some reworking around the seat belt guides in the headrest areas to the parts and I made a new mold for the guide inserts after I modified the pattern. Still more clean-up and finish work to do on them, but they are fine for measurements now…

    The little jack is done. I weathered it a little, didn’t want it to look brand new…

    Thanks guys. I don't think being "brave" is the operative term. I was going for fun, entertainment, and a challenge.

    Finally got around to casting Another Super 7 copies of the Weber carb I made. Each one is two parts, right now… Still lots of hardware to machine and details to add.
