      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.

    Still fitting and fine tuning, but I have the upper and lower hose mounting points done and machined the filler neck from brass.

    I’ll finish straightening out the core pieces once the major handling work is done. (The metal is soft and bends very easily.)


    At this point there are 80 parts making up the radiator with more on the way.

    Hello Mark,

    I can't find the right words to do you justice, it’s just so far beyond my expertise.
    All I can say is that I really like and find your model beautiful.
    Regards, Ronald

    Thank you Ronald, that is very kind of you to say.

    Since I was drilling holes for the radiator core… I went ahead and made the pedals; from aluminum.

    These parts will be the cooling fan, shroud and motor.

    Here is the shroud and fan assembly loosely fitted to the radiator assembly.

    I also have the bug screen set in place for the front of the radiator.

    Only a few more parts to make for this sub-assembly…

    This is the start to the stereo.

    It is an AM/FM/MP3 weather resistant unit. That is an SD card slot on the upper right, the USB port is below it…

    The almost finished grilles and the speakers (one is assembled on the right). The speaker cones were machined from black nylon and the centers are aluminum.

    Here is the nearly finished stereo dash unit. I built it in two layers.

    The knob is machined aluminum, (with 10 facets). The display was cut from some holographic material that changes colors, mostly blues & greens (and has some abstract images in it) when viewed from different angles. Doesn’t really photograph too well though…
    Here it is loosely dry assembled.

    This will be the grab bar for the passenger side of the dash. I’ll add the rubber grip after it is painted.
