Bentley Blower 1:12

Recommended Posts

I was planning to build two cars out of two kits. One classic Bentley with my accessories, I have a few dozen possible modifications and exchanges for metal parts.
The second car ... but what to say to him is the special Henry Birkin's, he has an extended wheelbase, a different body, and was probably the biggest GP of all time.
So far, I have postponed the construction of the second model.

The building will be with my modifications according to the possibilities of hand tools. The building has been going on for some time, so I will shorten it a bit :)

Very nice. A lot of nice little extras going on here. By the looks of it, you will end up with a fantastic model. Best of luck with the rest of the build. I’ll be sure to drop by for the updates.

Velmi hezké. Je tu spousta pěkných drobností. Podle vzhledu skončíte s fantastickým modelem. Hodně štěstí se zbytkem stavby. Budu určitě upustit o aktualizace.

Thank you very much .... I'll try what my old eyes will allow me :)

Interesting to see me quoted in Czech, I always knew I could speak many languages 🤣.

 

recently used a Czech shop MN modelar and had excellent service. You may wish to check them out if you didn’t already know about them.

Zajímavé, že mě citují v češtině, vždy jsem věděl, že mohu mluvit mnoha jazyky 🤣.

 

nedávno použil český obchod MN modelar a měl vynikající služby. Můžete si je zkontrolovat, pokud jste o nich ještě nevěděli.

Well I have the translator turned on, my English is not good :)
MN modeler is cool, big choice, no problem ... one MN shop I have about 20 kilometer ... I'm there often :)

It was necessary to make a holder, it works well ... equipped some other parts ... I put some crumbs on it, I do not understand the sense of doing a piece of the kit from three four pieces (see magneta) in order to look like a lump of plastic in the finals.

Magneta on the spot + a few details, I removed the funny hints of grinding control, added brass ducts, the control rods are made of polished duralumin + ignition straps

Maybe it seems a little ... cabs and pipe production ...
The first attempt I invented the tube supply and shake it, drilling 0.8mm hole ... On a few photos, the cables on the candles are not screwed but on "pipes", so I cut the brass tubes and powered them on 0.8 cables. Then it was time to throw everything on the engine :)
I think nerve: lol:

From the brass old coin, I made two turbo suction caps and fitted them with a net, although it won't be much visible on the model but the original one was just the one I couldn't let :)


Of course, I made the pressurizer from duralumin fitted with brass micro screws

I modified the horny assembly and put it back in steel mesh

Another approach was to drill holes and make stitches on leaf springs and braid them

He had to figure out the connection of the steering column mechanism, although in the manual it is folded but probably not counting with coloring, I reworked the whole system of connection with the crank handle and fitted it with a steel pin, it works great. A few tubes and some real matrix instead of the funny ones, and another plastic tank, which is missing in the kit.

Production of roughly 5mm buckles ... original in the kit was missing, I would probably not give them there ...

 

file.php?id=1467505

 

 

file.php?id=1467506

 

I have virtually finished the entire bottom frame ... I still find more and more inaccuracies in burrs and dividers, when assembling the front axle immediately snapped plastic pegs as a swivel joint and had to replace them with steel ... the whole geometry is so weird, a lot has to be adjusted and finishing

 

file.php?id=1469184

 

I started working on the mudguards and their fitting with the frame ... it is a shock, the carrying rods have unequal profiles, the fenders are not the same and I am seriously thinking that I will not give them there anymore and throw away a few hours I have spent grinding them ... Geometry I repaired by warming the entire axle and changing its shape

A few details ... thermal insulation with braid, production of brake drum cooling. I was wondering what their color would be, some of the body-color drums in the photos, and some as bare metal, probably an aluminum alloy. So I kind of mixed the color, the green is already pretty much there

Another adjustment of the protective net of lights .... I was inspired by the building on the net and decided to finish by grinding the indicated net on the clear plastic and adding the net to the real ... for a while, I got stuck when it bursts ...

Since I like the details, I drove out the position seat beams using an aluminum template, made a new one instead of what looks like a hammer - it's some kind of valve, I adjusted the row and I am trying to make some cables, probably win, colored lead wires, are more subtle

I made something like a sort of shifter ... so that the stick wasn't just murdered, some wires, color of abrasion ...
Modifying additional radiator and oil tank lids ...

Ignition magnet rods adjustment

So the next step, I made a shipping box for competitions and exhibitions.

 

Modifications to the model, since the kit is more than 20 years old, parts are incomplete and damaged, some unnaturally bent. Cooler adjustment, strainer is made of bronze mesh

Other adjustments are related to the bonnet, made of brass plate and pipe I made a "piano" hinge

I made a crossbar (or longitudinal) of a duralumin bonnet, I carved a "l" bracket and riveted a 1mm rivet to the end of the bracket ... it's just rough. Next to it is the original plastic part on which the bonnet was just lying

file.php?id=1481737

 

Little Evolution of the Great Shield ... Terrible ... The original frame was in the frame on the bald as well as the two places cracked ...
I used a steel mesh and produced a slightly better version than the plexiglass that is the original kit component

 

file.php?id=1481824

 

 

file.php?id=1481825

 

file.php?id=1481826

 

on the test he assembled the lower frame of the big label ... well ... the plastic holds only the chromes and in addition does not fit the profile, the lower paws bend ... First I tried to grind but then I decided to make the whole lower frame of dural and I will also try to move the upper segments of the frame ... semi-finished.

Bottom frame finished and after basic polishing. I even managed the 3D effect of the bottom "paws" where the bolt will be acknowledged. I'm still thinking that I'm gonna get thin ... but the car looks good ...

 

file.php?id=1482451

 

file.php?id=1482452

 

file.php?id=1482453

 

I made my rivets to mount the frame in place, I put down the test with the car as it would look ... I think making the new part was the right decision ...

I drove out the positions of rivets and bolts on the fenders and went to fit, especially the front ... I got them to the same shape as possible by heating, but those cars did not fit on the car - the brackets and as my colleague prophesied, I was forced to use the front fenders 2mm wire. Now all four are on the right proportions and waiting for the MFH's studs and rivets.
Interestingly, at all similar Bentley buildings, no one is burdened by riveting on the mudguards ...
