Great detail Paul. You are going to knock this one out of the park.

Thanks guys

I've learned with these kits that every piece has to be checked to make sure it fits to the piece next to it.  I trial fit the rear frame pieces to the front frame.  







Then I started to clean up the rear frame pieces and got most of the holes drilled in them.  The rear frame was dry assembled for fit. I still haven't decided how I will glue this piece together. My options are CA, epoxy or possibly low temp solder.

Looking good Paul. Nice work.

I'd go with tiny amounts of epoxy. Bit too much risk with solder and I'm not sure CA would be strong enough!

It's been awhile since I worked on this build.  I had a major falling-out with my build partner, which also killed my building mojo.  But I'm hoping it's back because I got the pieces out and started working on it again.  After attempting to low-temp solder some scrap white metal together, I realized it wouldn't take much of an error to reduce an expensive kit to a puddle of metal. So I decided to try this stuff.



Starting with the five main engine framework pieces, I slowly built my way up to this rear frame.

Sorry to hear you had a kerfuffle with your build partner but I am glad to see you on this one again.

The engine itself is so good, it could be displayed outside the body. That is one wicked big scale kit!

Thanks guys.

Since the procedure for the rear frame was to glue a couple of pieces, wait 24 hours, then glue a couple more,  I also jigged up the front chassis tubes.



Then I stuck it into the front floor and added the dash and radiator to check the fit.  The body mates well with the dash and the rad does not interfere with the body.  I had seen another 917 build where the guy had to modify parts to clear the body and rad.

Some more great work Paul. Why the wait if you're using CA? It's instant.

The stuff I have pictured above isn't CA.  It's a sort of epoxy that you don't have to mix.  I had used it to fix a chair and it proved to be strong, so I went with it for the build.  It says it has a 30 min working time with a cure time of 24 hours.

Ah I understand now. Just browsed the pic, looks too much like CA. Good luck with it. I don't have the patients for that kind of set time when building.

Me either Curt. I often use kicker on my CA because 2 minutes is too long...

Great stuff Paul. I"m glad the hood comes off so you can see all that. It would be a shame for hit to be hidden after you put the body on.

Thanks. Glad you guys are enjoying this build as much as I am

I used that same epoxy to add the cylinders to the block because it allowed me to get everything straight before it set up.  Wouldn't be able to do that with CA.





Then I CA'd the heads on and trial fit the fan shroud.   I couldn't resist trying the engine out in its rightful place.  It was a little tight getting it in there.  It's going to be even tighter when completed.

Awesome work! The frame is just ... intimidating, lol. The engine looks fantastic - can't wait to see this develop.
