been working on the body I`m using (the one in the photo is for mock up ,it`s broken on the other side)made new rear arches . they have been stretched widened and raised . they have also been moved back. i`ve shaped filled and primered the rear arch and mocked a wheel in place .now i can carry on with the rear chassis.here`s how the body look`s at the moment

both headers have now been made out of 2.5mm rod .the fuel lines run from the tank to the fuel pumps to the fuel filters. then one goes to the carb and the other goes to the fuel solenoid .another nitrous bottle was added and the lines fitted from the bottles to the nitrous solenoid .here`s how the Anglia chassis looks at the moment

The modded body looks good & fantastic chassis.

Its a shame Revell don't update the original Anglia kit.

hurtz
27-01-15, 06:23 PM
yeah I agree with you 57peppershaker Revell should up date the Anglia and Thames models .different wheels tubbed chassis so the wheels fit under the wings strut front or independent front suspension and mabey a bbc or sbc engine instead of the Oldsmobile engine
