Another Super Seven (Part 10)

Kit / Model  

Seven Based Custom

Manufacturer  

Scratch

Item Code  

Scratchbuilt Seven

Scale  

1/12

Description  

This will be the master for the Webers. The body is made from bronze I acquired from the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland. A friend who worked there gave me a set of used pick up shoes (think giant slot car).

I machined the body to accept the venturi tubes; they are pieces of brass tubing. Soldering the bronze to the brass turned to be more difficult than I expected, and it doesn’t have much strength for hard edges either. It seems to be a porous and dirty metal, maybe from its previous life…?

Start of Weber carb master in bronze and brass.
Next I added the bowl to it. Since the bronze needed far more heat to fuse other parts to it using solder than the brass, I opted to use styrene for these parts.
Looks kind of like Wall-E…
This is the start of the top of the carb.
The base flanges have been added, they are made from acid cut brass from artwork I drew.
I also added the intake side flanges.
This is the beginning of the intake manifold. It is all brass soldered together. Mounting surfaces are acid cut and the tubes are just K&S stock cut and machined to fit.
This is the carb master and manifold dry fitted to the head.
I am close to being done with the master for the Weber carbs. There’s about 60 pieces to make this part, maybe a few more… The hardware will machined for each individual carb after I cast copies.
