      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.

    I finished the tie rod ends w/adjusters. Mostly brass with some aluminum. Purposely some wear to them as they tend to get some tool marks from being adjusted. I also got the upper control arm bushings and keepers made and installed.

    Yes, the muffler logo was acid cut/etched into the aluminum.

    Thanks! This is a technique I don't have. Results are usually superb; the products to deal with a lot less.

    Thank you very much.

    I shot the final clear on the nose and will finish the insides and minor external details after I polish and wax it.

    This is the braided electrical grounding strap that grounds the engine to the frame.

    I used pins to hold the front spoiler in place before installing the actual mounting hardware. The inside is purposely done to look like unfinished painted fiberglass. The finger pulls have also been added to front latches.

    outstanding detail, and brilliant scratch building,

    Thank you Tony.

    The side body panels are on for the final time. I’ll install the panel below the header after I finish bolting them all the way on.


    The rear body work is coming along as well, but other details need to be made and installed inside of it before final installation to the frame.
