      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 front sway bar and the stabilizer links (including the bushings) are in the bag. Too many tiny parts I didn’t want to risk losing. Mostly brass with some machined aluminum for the nuts & bolts & washers and soft vinyl for the rubber bushings.
    I also added the tabs for the stabilizer links to the lower control arms.

    I added the seat mounting rails to the frame.

    And I made the brackets for the seats. This is the left, hence the engraved “L”…

    The seats snap onto the rails and allow the seats slide.

    The interior side panels are made from a perforated aluminum.

    They are just loosely set in the frame here.

    Beginning of upper under hood framework. Snaps in since it will mounted after the engine is built and installed.

    The foot wells are built. I was able to attach the passenger side to the transmission tunnel and still be able to snap it in and out of the frame easily.

    The driver’s side was a bit more work due to the provisions for the master cylinders and room for the pedals. It “loads” from the top and locks into part of the framework on the bottom of the car.


    This upper panel also locks in place.

    Some of the principle elements of the pedals assembly and the driver’s side foot well.

    I still need to make the faces of the pedals, but I have the geometry set up.

    The guide for the steering shaft is installed in the foot box too.

    I started making the frame support work for the steering shaft.

    The cowl fit and attachment points have been finalized and I started roughing out the dashboard.

    All of these parts are friction fit/snap together.

    Thanks David!

    These are the U-joints for the steering shaft.

    Here is a dry fitting of them with the links of the shaft assembly.

    I still need to make pins for the cross-shafts…

    I reworked the motor mounts so I could drop the engine in from the top instead of loading it from the bottom. I figure it will make my life a lot easier as the building progresses.


    I also added some reinforcement around the steering column.

    Driveshaft is brass with aluminum bearing caps for the cross-shafts.

    I added the weights and shot a coat of black on it.

    The shifter boot was made by machining a mold from aluminum and casting Another Super 7 it with the same pliable resin Another Super 7 I used for the tires and other boots.

    The bezel was also machined from aluminum.

    It fits flush in the transmission tunnel.

    The dash is set up for the gauges.

    The gauges will be Auto Meter Phantom series. These are the basic housings for the three sizes.

    I used brass on the backside for a positive fit when I assemble the gauges with the lenses into the dash.

    Thank you Bruce!

    I started on the radiator. First I made the outer shell to fit within the nose of the car.

    Next I made the frame for the core.


    The core is made up of aluminum rod and steel wire.
