Thanks Willezcr8! Yeah I hear you...! The main thing is the shape and curves are there...so even if I wanted to do another piece like this I can use this to make the mold after it's been fixed...this way I don't have to go messing with the Sandman anymore lol!

So... In order to celebrate photophucket'S allowing my pics ( or if some kind soul paid the subscription lol) I'm crawling out from under my rock and will be posting stuff again...lol!

I haven't really stopped building...just slowed down a bit... I started the other Holdens but will have to create a new thread for those as they will be primarily RWD...

Anywho... I couldn't locate any of those 1/18 hinges so decided to have a go at building my own... I guesstimated what 1/10 should be based on the measurements of the 1/18 ones and came up with this...took a bit of trial and error... Watcha think?

Hey Preston you are back! Haha noce to hear of you, those honges look very smooth and cool! Love the geometry going on in these. Photobroket also bugged me and slowed me down a bit... kind of kills the moment to suddenly have no thread, especially on large threads on many years lool!!

Can't wait to see your start on the other rwd ones!!

Hey thanks guys! How you guys doing? Hope it's all good!

Yeah...gonna try to scale them up to 1/8 for the blazer that I really need to get done... As it is, they are perfect for the Holdens, but a bit too small for the Blazer.

Hinges are awesome! How much further over the top can you push this thing?
Got a pair of these in 1/10 I could buy off you?

Hey thanks man! Lol..these are 1/10...well what I figured 1/10 will be based on the ones on the Sandman (1/18). They look a bit small on the Blazer which I figure is 1/9(?). Couldn't find pics of it installed in the actual 1:1 truck for comparisons though...so not sure...but I will be making a set at 1/9-1/8 and if it looks good, I will probably make a few sets...so you may be in luck...lol. I will have to look harder to find some reference pics!

The sixth scale Ford Ranger came with REALLY bad single pivot hinges. I havent ran hinges on it in years. If you could make a pdf pattern with a scale or something, I could make them myself. That'd be a super cool reference point.

I'm good with 1/10 scale. They'll be perfect for the car I keep talking myself out of building

Crap....big oopsy guys! been nursing the flu and a head cold for the past couple weeks... A few days ago, while I was pretty much doped on meds, I decided to do some more brass work..decided to try building a hood/bonnet latch for the Holdens I'm building...not sure what I did....but this happened...!

Well...I'm still trying to dial it in....but it seems to work mostly...kinda...lol....it's a good thing in the drugged up haze I seemed to have made enough for the 5 Holdens that I'm building...lol! Sweet!

Did a small vid...unfortunately the only opened hood I had available to test it on was the the Blazer...but hey...Holdens are also Chevys....like cousins...once removed! Lol...

Watcha think?
