  1. Scorpion Window track

    Try to do a different project everyday on my ground up Scorpion project. To that end, today is window track refurbishment day.
    What a mess, I finally got the stuck spiral run spring nearly out of the metal track and need to remove some internal rust in the
    track so as the line will move freely. My question is: The spring track is foam filled and I'm wondering what would be the best
    lubricant after I clean the internal track. Grease or silicon? I'm leaning towards Redline ...

  2. Building a 1/20 scale D-50

    The basic engine is complete now. I jumped ahead a few steps to add the wiring or the twin spark ignition. Wires from the twin magnetos come through the firewall and enter 2 tapered pipes to head to the plugs. The pipes are solid white metal and are roughly the size of a toothpick. I carefully drilled the interior of the pipe and the eight holes for the wires then super glued the wire to the holes. The heads were drilled to accept the wires. Sorry, no spark plugs....I know my limitations.

  4. Building a 1/20 scale Lancia D-50

    Hello,
    Its been a busy week with the 1:1 scale Lancias. The Scorpions getting a coolant flush and brake overhaul and the HPE has had a power steering hose replaced and now looks like it needs a starter motor rebuild. But , despite that I've managed to get the D-50 project started as well. The first stage is to assemble the engine. Its a straight forward process but it involves a lot of prep work. All the parts are cast white metal that need some clean-up with a file to remove casting marks ...

  5. Building a 1/20 scale Lancia D-50

    Hello everyone,
    I'm going to start a blog today about building a 1/20 scale model of a Lancia D-50. Its not just any model, its a multi media kit produced in Japan by Model Factory Hiro, arguably the best model manufacturer in the world today. On my last trip to Tokyo I decided to make the effort to visit the MFH factory in the suburb of Adachi-ku and was rewarded with incredible hospitality which included a full tour of the facility, lunch and a drive back to the train station in the ...
