      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 the lower center link for the rear suspension.

    It mounts to the frame and to the DeDion tube.

    Thanks guys!
    This is the rear end cover. All brass, soldered together.

    Here are some of the parts partially assembled.

    I made the exhaust connecting flanges at the same time I made the brass parts for the rear end cover. First one was added to the collector, then a second to the pipe that will connect to the muffler. It has room for the gasket I’ll add later…

    I’ll cut and bend the pipe later, after I set up the muffler on the frame.

    Pumpkin time… I started off by building a brass armature with the mounting points and receiver points for other subassemblies. That will provide plenty of strength. Then I added styrene Another Super 7 for the shapes and details.

    More progress on the differential. Still needs more bracing, plenty of cleanup, and other parts/details…

    Now that is some super 7 scratch building, real interesting way to do the diff, I love the result so far
    It's easier to destroy, than it is to create

    Thanks guys.

    I finished adding the bracing, cleaned it up and textured it. The texture photographs a bit coarser than it looks to me in person. I also machined a few parts for it and dry assembled it.

    This is the beginning of the gas tank. Simple sheet styrene Another Super 7 construction.

    I keyed the ends for added strength. The grooves were milled into the panels before assembly.

    Amazing Mark!
    Just a question... How do you texture the differential?
    Fine result to my eyes!

    Thank you. I use baby powder for the texture.


    I added more frame members and the mounting points for the differential, more brass.

    After mounting the diff, I installed some of the rear suspension pieces.
