Thanks for the kind feedback - it always helps. Modest changes, with R/C aircraft 5/16th inch aluminum rod reemployed for use as headlamp block out plate material, whereas the mounting surfaces for the front turn signals have been ground away. The GMP 1:18 '67 Camaro radiator switched out for the Lane 1:18 '68 Firebird radiator has resurfaced here, whereas a pair of Harrison oil coolers with the very large and undoubtably butch mounting flanges have been scratchbuilt and added. Headers are hard to source in this scale, while what can be seen are trimmed down from a modified release of the Hwy. 61 1:18 '70 Challenger. Lastly, the floor of the trunk area has been rebuilt and plugged for the removal of the cast-in 'stamped steel' fuel tank, with a resin fuel cell housing discreetly visible from behind and below. Kind regards to the community...
...looking more substantial surely with the revised headlamp plugs. Glad too to finally remove the remaining plastic that formerly held the turn signal inserts in position.
...not complete, although a new radiator support is taking shape with the aforementioned radiator and oil coolers taking their place. Attachments and inlets/outlets to come on the coolers, in addition to the diagonal braces across the front and rear surface of each cooler matrix. I also hope to add some brass screen in front of everything even though most of it might not strictly be visible. Mounting flanges for headers to come, whereas I further hope that I can reposition the tubes (or scratchbuild forward of the collectors) to reflect the proper positioning of the exhaust-side ports on a conventional (non-Ram Air V) head. In addition, some fill panels are slated to be added around each of the oil coolers.
...very hard to see, but fuel cell housing now visible from below. Yes, the GTO tailamp lenses will be modified and cut back to reflect what was fitted to a Tempest.
