Wiper motor,window hinges and stoppers for the windshield
|The part to be used for the motor.
||Part assembled and the printed switch is to be replaced with the "knob"
||Window in upward position
|Window in downward position.
||And the stopper knob
The front fenders
|Here are the parts to be used.The parts are laminated so it also will have color on the backside.
||Edges are painted to avoid the white stripe along the joint
||Here I have started to glue the biggest arch to the fender.It's a bit tricky to get it to be nice since there aren't any jointstrips or flips to glue the archer to.
||The part is sucessfully glued in place
|Next out will be this narrow arch....about 1mm thick.
The front seats
|The drawing of the seats.
||Here I have cutted out all the parts for one seat.
||First thing was to laminate the seatparts and the back parts.I have also marked on the seat where the buttmark will come.
||I used my Dremel to carve out the "buttmarks" in the seats
|The covers are applied, and the cushions are ready to be assembled into a seat.
||The cushions are put into the frame
||And we have a seat
||The seats are connected to their "feets"
||And placed into the car just to see how they fit.
||They fitted just fine
The rear axel,suspension and transmission.
|Drawing of the arms that is going to hold the axel and transmission.
||A lot of parts to be used for this job.
||Here I have mounted the first one.Half painted
||Half of the second one with the 1mm nuts in place
|| Construction of the second arm.The parts to use are cutted out and are ready for assembly.
||First out is making the small sylinder.The part is rolled against a 2mm rod to get the right size of the finished part.
|The sylinder is done, and the tiny roll to be mounted on the bottom is rolled against a 0,6mm rod.The end plates are also ready to me glued in place.
||Sylinder are glued to the plate, and the 3 distance keepers are done.Rolled agains a 1mm rod to be placed on spots c and d.
||The sylinder mounted on the arm.
||And the arm is placed where it should be
||This part is the first of at least 3 construction points..
||The drawing of cp2shows that this is a very simple job.
Construction point2 of the rear axel,suspension and transmission.
|It's just 5 parts involved,exept the small strips, and all the main parts are glued to 1mm karton.Strips are glued to 0,2mm karton..
||The parts are mounted, and the axel is inserted to see if I got it aligned.
Constructionpoint nr3 is the rear transmission.
||All the parts are cutted out.
||The rear part is laminated of 5 parts.
||The two "boxes" is underway
|The main parts done
||The part is finished.
||All parts are mounted loosely on thers positions just to see how it all fits.
||Another view of the part
|And put on the car to see how it fits there.It fitted just fine, but I have to wait with the gluing until the engine is in place....and that will be another story
|| Constructionpoint nr4, the wheel connectors.The drawing shows that this is a straight forward assembly.
||Parts cutted out...still amazed by the number of parts for this build....
||The main parts put together.
||And I put the wheel on just for fun....So now I'm going to put some paint on the parts and glue it all together.
||As I didn't have enough small details to work with.....I decided to put nuts and bolts on the wheel since my plans for a diorama involves the change of a broken tire.....and I wanted the bolts to show when the wheel is removed, and the nuts lying on the ground on a dirty/oiled piece of clothing.
|All five bolts in place.
||All five bolts in place.
||Nuts and bolts in place
|The plate with the bolts are glued in place into the wheel connector.
||And an overview.There are still some details I want to have in place before eveything is painted and glued in place.
||The workshop with the parts
||The rear parts
