      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.

    This is one of the two cockpit side X-braces. They had to be notched at the intersection.

    And they are installed…

    Looks great bud. You're giving me better ideas for a couple of chassis that I need to build, thanks.

    I used a vacuum on all the materials before casting Another Super 7 , and kept them under pressure after casting Another Super 7 while they cured.
    Yeah....I saw that after I posted....

    My bad.

    No worries Mike. You had me thinking I forgot something...

    I started fitting the rear body section to the frame so I could take some measurements to build the rear portion of the frame.

    Beginning of the rear section of the frame, this hoop fits into the rear body. It is much longer than a standard Super 7 to accommodate the added bodywork and trunk.

    I started on the rear suspension. More brass… This will be the DeDion tube.

    This piece is mostly bronze with two brass parts. It is the lower mount.

    I added the upper link mounting brackets and drilled pilot holes for the shock mounting bosses.

    More progress on the frame… This section plugs into the rear of the main frame.

    …as well as fine tuning the fit of the body to the frame.

    Thanks!

    I made the motor mounts and soldered them to the frame. They are made of brass rod and acid etched brass sheet. Also added the cross member for the trans mounting point.

    Thank you!

    With the engine secured into the frame, I decided to make the header. Brass, solder, steel and styrene Another Super 7 , (I made the flange while I was building the head).


    The collector is just brass pieces soldered together.

    It is a press fit to the header.
