This will be the bell housing. I made the flange from .020 sheet styrene and drilled some of the mounting holes in it and the back of the block. The housing is PVC schedule 40 pipe.
I shaped the housing and added the bulge for the starter…
Mostly done, it needs a mounting point for the transmission.
Here is the gearbox section of the transmission, more styrene construction.
I need to make the trans before I can make the receiver section for the bell housing.
I made the top of the trans out of brass. I drew artwork for the pieces and then I acid cut the parts out, then soldered them together. It is made up of four parts.
I also cut brass for the mounting faces of the bell housing and transmission.
I started on the rear section of the transmission, all styrene construction with a little polyester filler.
Right side.

Thank you Mario!
Actually, I am not copying the Tamiya kit. I am making a custom based on a Seven. Note the bodywork for example. The frame is also a different design than what the Tamiya kits provide.
I already have done work for Tamiya...

Absolutely amazing Mark! This is a true love for scratching. Usually people scratch what can't be gotten, but you just is reproducing a kit. Should you to work at Tamiya?
