Default Eagles Projects

This is where I will share the different projects I am working on.

The photo below is my latest resin casting of a 1961 Ferrari 156 "Sharknose" F1. It fits the Tomy Mega G 1.7 chassis. I love the vintage F1 cars. I still have more work to do on the model. In the photo are a couple more projects. In the background next to the 4G chassis is a casting of a Chaparral 2 I am working on.The 4G chassis has my custom narrow wheels with Jel-Claw tires on it. The narrow wheels make it easy to tuck and slam drag bodies. On the track are my custom gears. The crown gears are bronze cast 18T. They are an on going project. The brass cluster gears are a finished project.

I also like the classis "cigar shape" of the 1960's Grand Prix bodies. Are you planning to make these for other than the AW four gear chassis, say like the Mega G LWB?

Sorry I did not say what chassis, it is setting on a Tomy Mega G 1.7. All road race bodies that I do either fit the BSRT G3 or Mega G.

Love the Sharknose Ferrari. Do they clip on as per standard bodies and do you have any other classic F1 cars in your line-up please?

Thank you vabchrog, Top Down, yes they snap into they chassis via a molded in body mount. I currently have a Ferrari D50. I am however reworking that mold and making improvement in detail over the current model.

Default Decals

Here is another project. It is not the resin casting so much as it is the flames. I use to use an Alps printer but it broke. I then switch to a Silhouette Portrait vinyl cutter this allows me to do any type custom flame I want. So the space between the flame tips is cut out. When you apply the flame it is as close to an air brushed flame as a decal gets. What I mean by that is there is no decal material between the flame tips, only paint. They are a lot more difficult to apply but I think it is worth the effort.

They do like nice. I like them on your bikes too. I'm doing the same body now but find the wheelbase off just a hair for a 4 gear chassis. Did you have to mod the wheelbase ? I do a lot of airbrushing but think I'll look into a cutter. Never did any research but always worried the vinyl would be too thick to use as a decal but yours looks great.

Superdave321, yes on wheelbase mod. Don't be mislead by the name vinyl cutter. The decal is cut from white water slide decal film. I do a lot of air brushing also but this is pretty cool. The cutter when it cuts normally cuts out all the white. However if I have a flame or graphic that I am fading from white to say light yellow I can tell the cutter not to cut it out.
