      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 started on the rear section of the transmission, all styrene Another Super 7 construction with a little polyester filler.

    I also cut brass for the mounting faces of the bell housing and transmission.

    You must have a really good reference to make this detailed parts.

    More details have been added to the rear section of the transmission, but there is still more to add and some cleanup to be done before texturing it.

    The cast portions that make up the gearbox and tail shaft assemblies of the transmission are built and have had some texture applied.
    The top of the gear case has been shot with a cold galvanizing coating.
    The trans is pinned together to help with future painting and assembly.
    More parts need to be machined to round this part out, but most of them are just hardware items.

    I started on the master for the Webers. The body is made from bronze I acquired from the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland. A friend who worked there gave me a set of used pick up shoes (think giant slot car).
    I machined the body to accept the venturi tubes; they are pieces of brass tubing. Soldering the bronze to the brass turned to be more difficult than I expected, and it doesn’t have much strength for hard edges either. It seems to be a porous and dirty metal, maybe from its previous life…?

    Next I added the bowl to it. Since the bronze needed far more heat to fuse other parts to it using solder than the brass, I opted to use styrene Another Super 7 for these parts.

    Looks kind of like Wall-E…

    The base flanges have been added, they are made from acid cut brass from artwork I drew.

    I also added the intake side flanges…

    Hello,

    a really great project. I've got questions.
    How thick is the metal used? and now the most important, so you cut out the parts?
    The plate shown here is cut so precisely clean, what tools do you use?

    For the hood and cowl I used 0.010 thick. To cut the parts from the sheet I used the straightedge shown with an old #11 X-Acto knife. Much like scribing Another Super 7 in a panel line. It is somewhat tedious, certainly boring, but leaves a nice edge. I also used a PE saw to get into the tight corners.

    This is the beginning of the intake manifold. It is all brass soldered together. Mounting surfaces are acid cut and the tubes are just K&S Another Super 7 stock cut and machined to fit.

    This is the carb master and manifold dry fitted to the head.

    Here is the windshield frame and rearview mirror. Each is made of three pieces of brass soldered together.


    The rim for the face has been acid cut and soldered onto the mirror. Still needs some clean up and trueing before painting and installation of the mirror face.

    Looks great Mark, what will you use for the mirror?

    I'll either use stainless steel (like last time), or Mylar. I'm leaning towards Mylar...
