A bit more progress on the chassis for you guys. Having temporarily bolted the frame together to get a more stable construction, I set-about the engine-mounts, using the kit's block as the start point. For the rear-mounts, I used 0,3mm tin for the angle bolted to the frame and 0,5mm nickel-silver for the plate. The main part of the plate has to run parallel to the centre-line of the chassis, while the rest follows the taper towards the front. To realise this, I cut about 95% across each piece and then twisted to the angle required. The 0,3mm tin was then formed into an angle and the taper cut. It was then just a matter of soldering the pieces together. Voila.... Next, I drilled these and the engine (exactly same place) for the cross-beam, then put them together and sat the unit on the rails. To get the block dead-level, the front mounts had to be drilled a bit lower and slightly forward of the kit's solution. Once satisfied with the positioning etc, I set about filing the plates to a better shape and adding the flanges. Still quite a bit more refinement needed, but, overall, I'm happy with the progress made so far! Thank's for watching guys....I hope you like!!!!
