1/35th Thunder kit of a WW2 Indian 741B, you get 2 models in kit, so Glenn built one as civilian version. The model has photo etch metal parts, wheel spokes, brake & gear linkage, carb bracket (tiny) etc. This was built out the box except the cylindrical air filter to replace the std part, and the number plates.
Built out of box. The KS750 has additional bag on right side+ extra duffle bag on seat, both bikes have exhaust header pipes and inlet pipes and carbs on the BMW
After watching American Pickers recently, where a vendor had owned a ’65 E Type for over 40 years, but had replaced the unreliable, expensive, Jaguar Engine with a 350 Chevy V8. Glenn looked at the sad old kit (which was largely complete) and thought he could remake it with a few upgrades....
An AMT V8 from the Willy’s gasser fitted in quite well, Glenn had to spread the front sub-frame rails a little, and used the narrowest heads & rockers, and exhaust manifolds from spares box. Ignition leads are cotton coated wire. Twin carb inlet manifold & trumpets went on, a hole was cut in the bonnet for this to poke through
The clear window moulding was trimmed out to allow the roll cage to fit, and a wind screen made from clear sheet & curved to fit. A Tamiya Mini Cooper driver seat, and frame under E Type passenger seat to lift it up a little. a fuel tank & filler went in with filler hole in hatch.
A Tamiya Subaru provided a Radiator, steering rack, roll cage, fire extinguisher, floor mounted electric control boxes & gear-lever. Minilite wheels from An AMT Capri were fitted to the E Type suspension, and arches carefully “dremelled” out to accommodate them.
Humbrol gold sprayed body & various American decals including Hot Rod club & Chevy parts specialist ones, with black plate Cal Reg Plates. Mirror & dash decals from the Tamiya mk2, seat belt decals from Interdecal, Germany. Side exhaust pipes made up & bare metal foil on the sills. Wipers are metal from SRC slot car Spain.
