  • Another Mustang Sportsman

    I thought I'd try my hand once again at building some identical brass chassis & cars & make them available to forum members
    who don't or can't do brass builds.
    I planned for 2 vintage Trans-Am type cars or oval sportsman racers with some Dremel work & wider wheels/tires.
    I had these 2 kits laying around. Both have approximately identical wheelbases.
    I made a mold of each & cast a couple resin bodies.
    Well ........... after building a couple simple narrow chassis for 3/32 axles, I found I didn't have the wheels or tires needed to fit inside the fenders.
    ............(I use 1/8 axles)..................
    I got out the heat gun to "gently" stretch the fenders a bit for a little bigger rubber.
    Unfortunately I got a bit carried away & wound up selfishly building a Mustang sportsman for myself
    As it turns out I just can't bring myself to build 2 things the same.........!

    .........................I built a similar, but different, 3/64 brass rod chassis with WRP guide tongue & SCC motor bracket.
    Parma guide, Big Mama braid. Piranha motor, Pro-Track wheels & home cast urethane tires..................................

    After stretching the rear quarters & adding front flares I got the body to fit.
    Painted with Ace Hardware yellow rattle can & home printed decals..(On some really crappy paper)
    Proly will peel the decals off later & do a better job in the future.

    P.S. I think I'll make these 2 chassis available to Harry to hand out at the Showdown
