Skinned and often burned to boot! It is an open wheel formula car of our own design and construction. It is in the Sports Car Club of America class F1000. Limited to a stock 1000cc motorcycle engine. Full wings and bits and about 150 mph.

Cheers!

Tony


Thanks Tom and Troy.

Rear sight v notch piece part 3 of 3

Latest installment. Counting the spring, elevation screw and hinge pin, there are 6 pieces for the parts counters. Only 3 are machined.

The machining is done on the rear sight. I have some sample thin spring steel to work with to make the sight snap to "attention" or stay folded down. Will play with that later.

Good night,

Tony

Thanks Russ. Don't hold your breath though, you might smurf out

Seriously, probably at least several months out. I can see light at the end of the tunnel and am fired up. Lots of advice and help on the forum!

I've been told to not make them too pretty and perfect

I am following advice.

Best Regards,

Amazing craftsmanship!

My Lewis gun might wind up being a cut out 2X4 with a tin can nailed on for the magazine....

Thanks!

90% of is is being able to draw it accurately. Fortunately, I have occaisional access to the real deal, Ray Hollings and NASM drawings, plus forum members.

Hey, whatever works until you have time, $$$$ or both for a prettier one It won't take you 1,000 hours either I am almost afraid to total my time so far. When I eventially finish I will. I keep a log of all time spent. A bit anal there too

I'd rather see a broom stick and carving than nothing at all. A fighter is just about naked without a gun or guns.

Best Regards,

Tony Moore
