    Hi Roy: Welcome to the organization, a great group. Any particular area of modeling interest you? I do Stationary steam engines, previously did steam locomotives but just to heavy for this old frame to handle anymore. What part of the great state of ill are you from? Here in the SW corner of Missouri. Regards.

    Hi Bob. I'm in central Il. I'm planning on building some sterling engines and possibly getting into building steam powered boats. Regards, Roy

    Hey stevehucks396. I am new to posting on this website so I will need to learn how to add the photos you requested. My Nova is partially torn down and sitting on my lift but should be able to get you some unusual photos. I am in the process of installing a shortened 9” Ford housing with Curry diff but also am installing NASCAR truck arm rear track bars. These will totally prevent wheelhop, bind on cornering, and maximize forward bite plus give a boulevard ride. Probably will use coil overs. I had this setup in a 66 Chevelle dirt track car and won a lot of races on dirt and asphalt tracks in the Midwest in the 1980s.
