HEMI TRIKE buildup
Feb 8 2005 - First it needs to be reassembled.
I started with
a basket case King Chopper that the frame rails were snapped in 6 different
I reinforced the inside of the rails with 1/4 round Evergreen strip styrene
Feb 12 2005 ~ First cut is always the hardest.
and basked in Ambroid Pro-Weld I eyeballed the engine location and...
hacked away where the engine will need clearance and built this cage.
The engine is the 1/10th Parma reissue of the old MPC Shirley Muldowney hemi.
Despite the change in scale, it fits very snuggly.
Feb 13 2005 ~ a little refinement
Added a couple
of braces and a seat and rear end solution.
The rear end is a mess of Evergreen tube and a Testors "Weird-Ohs" Mama B and Baby kit.
February 20 2005
Without a 1/10th scale transmission licking around, these 18 pieces of Evergreen plastic and 1/16th scale Halibrand mag from the Don Prudhomme Wynns Winder kit make up an 18 part reverser.
