Looks like the Brawner Hawk. I think maybe Clidinst did that one, is his name on there anywhere? He used to sell copies of his blueprints and somebody else is selling them now, but I don't know who. In the great days of the 500, he used to measure and do accurate drawings of some of the cars.

The draftsman's initials are on the drawing.(JS?, FS?)

All I have are drawn by him and refer to "Andretti", with the exception of one of a driver's head, drawn by ERV.

Here's one more I took a quick shot of, before I left.

Strombecker sold a 1/32 Brawner Hawk. Could these drawings have been used for making injection molds? Andretti drove the full size car, which actually was a Brabham BT12.  Mike, as time permits, please post some of the other drawings. Are they of different cars, or are they for pieces of this one?

Great stuff, thanks for sharing Mike.

 

Could these drawings have been used for making injection molds?

 

I'd think these drawings are specifically to make the injection molds, seeing as they have "Released for production" note in the revision table, the material listed in the "Material spec.." box and "Wall thickness" note for the body.

 

Going by the dwg designation, it looks like this project number is "X-1173" with drawing numbers 30534-x, and x being individual part or drawing # in the series.

 

There are a few dimensions missing from the body drawing, so I think there could be at least one more dwg to complete the body.

 

:huh:

Bill,
As I posted in #4, all say (Andretti) except for the driver's head, so I assume they are for the Brauner Hawk/ Brabham BT12.

Material spec is polystyrene so I assume these were used to make the molds.

Anyway, I came across these from a new customer who lives nearby. It turns out he got them from a long time area racer, Bob Van Stover. Bob occasionally came into my original location, in La Grange, to pick up parts to "basement race."

Bob was moving to Florida, so he just didn't want to lug the stuff like these blueprints, and also the 1/32 car he gave to local racer/JK chassis designer, Chuck Gambo, that I show in this [url=http://slotblog.net/...tover]LINK/url]

Interesting use of both imperial and metric dimensions on the Drivers Head.

I miss my four years of drafting in high school, and the eternal debate, Scum-x or Pounce.

Sometimes more heated than Ginger or Mary Ann. Lol
