Black bullet /bfl

Post by S-two » Sat Dec 08, 2012 12:16 pm

After several design mods I have started on the molds for my belly tanker. The car is going to be a slightly stretched p38 tank size going from 12'6" to 12'9 1/4" the extra 3 1/4" is to allow for a self designed all wheel drive system. At this stage I'm waiting for the ribs and spacers to set and harden before i skin and urethane it.

The marine ply ribs are dry and everything is hard. The first couple of strips of 2mm balsa have been fitted to what will be the top of the bottom half mold. I will post pics when i can work out how. :P

Sounds good S-two (Ducati?).
Do you have a photobucket account or similar for your photos?

Cheers
