pro street dodge A100
Posted by doomcrew on Tuesday, March 02, 2010 3:00 PM
ok, i started this on another thread (trucks) and thought as this is a pro street, it should be here. i'll post a few pics to give you an idea on the project, but you can look under the other thread to catch up. steve

got the fuel tank installed from the AMT Pro 57 chevy with a turned fuel cap, braces from scrap photo etch material. there is also a turn nitros bottle with scratch built hardware. i made the transmission linkage from a piece of chemiwood and linkage from the revell thames panel. i also used the kit battery box and a second one to house the electrics. thanks for looking. steve

i almost forgot to install the throttle cable into the engine, ooops! thankfully i managed to do it without too much trouble. i scratchbuilt brackets for each seat, basically long steel pins bent to shape and formed pieces of scrap etched material. the next job will be the harnesses and finishing off the detail master steering column. the gas and brake pedals will be installed after the body goes on to the chassis. comments are welcome. thanks for looking. steve

thanks for the comments guys keep 'em coming. the harness is by hobby design and uses soft photo etched material for the belts. i didn't use this but used oxide tape instead. i fixed the belts with r b motion bolts. i also scratchbuilt a centre console and started to make the ally panels for the doors from sheet pewter. steve

cheers. i did think of using a jimmy flintstone body, chopped of course, but i had already started on the body a few years back. i had to go on a hunt for some decals, and i managed to find ones for the belts from the street fighter kit. i also found a few others from different kits, although i couldn't find one for the Nos bottle, that was hand painted. steve

the body is now polished and shiny, using an LMG polishing system. i still have the doors to do and i might give the bed cover another once over. steve

thanks deuce, thanks del, although being in the uk, i don't think that any of our models will share the same table. i now have the doors done and hung. the door handles are from the revell willys kit and the window cranks are scratch built as are the hinges. there thin sheets of acetate that were cut to fit in to the window openings. the cab was covered in black flock to match the floor. steve

Yes! the body is on the chassis, and what a struggle it was. there cables and hoses in the way so i had to gently disconnect some of them and ease the body on, and reconnect the cables and hoses. the next thing is to make the pick up bed side panels and attach the one for the tailgate. steve

I can't imagine what a stress maker pulling out hoses would have been with such a beautiful piece of work. You have done a fantastic build. The finished product will be incredibly nice

thanks guys. it was a bit disheartening in taking things apart and re doing them, but it had to be done. i decided to french the head lights as i felt that the original lights seam to over power the front end. i was going to put etched mesh behind the grill, but with it, the grill would not fit. i have also installed the ally side panels in the pick up bed. just the a arms to redo, the tie rod and the front brake lines now. steve

I know I replied not long ago but I can't help myself. The finished truck is amazing. It honestly looks like you could fire it up and drive it off. I can't wait to see what you build nextBow
