Another Super Seven (Part 5)

Kit / Model  

Seven Based Custom

Manufacturer  

Scratch

Item Code  

Scratchbuilt Seven

Scale  

1/12

Description  

The oval shaped raised sections on the taillight panel are brass. I acid etched them with a pair of raised rings on the back that aligned with the holes in the taillight panel. I got caught up in assembling them and neglected to take pictures before I permanently installed themů


The lenses were machined from acrylic. Amber for the turn signal/parking lights and clear for the brake lights. The clear parts will be painted transparent red.

The light bezels were machined from 6061 aluminum to fit into the brass parts.
 
. The trim ring between the lenses is machined from soft aluminum tubing.
Once I dry assembled the lights into the taillight panel, I decided I wanted the raised oval accent to be more prominent, so I added sheet styrene to those areas and made a fillet of polyester filler.
Here is the dry assembled taillight set in the panel.
