hmm oh dear
Sorry Steveo, that Videodouche just angers me to high heaven. The guy is just a wad of lies and misinformation, and I don't want anyone to be sucked into his web of creepy "jokes" and bad hats.
Lets move on shall we?

couple of small updates to keep the thread alive
i got myself a bare metal foil scribing tool today , its used for making thin lines like around doors on model cars etc
i opened up the slats on the grille , you can see the ones closer to the screen havent been done yet
and i opened up the vents on the rear of the car, the tool works great and im glad i got it
lastly , ive wired the capacitors
just noticed the real car has way more slots in the grille...might see what i can do there
Red Capacitors have three wire leads insted of two. The ILM Photo References from BTTFParts.com are your best part 1 reference for overall layouts. Offto55.com also had some great shots of the part I car via some closer black and white images.
yeah noted the caps should have 3 wires , fitting 2x nearly drove me nuts so that will have to be close enough
and its a part 2 car im doing , could use some detail pics on the center box in front of the xover tube

I completely understand on the scale. I forgot just HOW small those really are.
Here you go with Part II DMC References. There are from Tom Silknitter, my co-moderator at 'Parts. These are part of an image collection he purchased from Jay Ohrberg. Jay had a direct connection with Universal immediately after filming and took a whole mess of reference shots. There are of the A-Car after filming and before it went on display in the early 90's.
I hope this helps. If there is anything else you needed, please be sure to post and I'll see if there is something in the archives that will help.
thank you , those are helpfull , ive never noticed that central hose under the crossover pipe before
do you have any other pics of the model cars you owned
Do you mean the BTTF:Ride model made by Apogee? I think all the pictures are on the site.

yeah thats the one thanks
any story behind why the wheels are not accurate?
I'm guessing they were fitted with lightbulbs for 'hovering'.
Brody hit the nail right on the head. There were three models made by Apogee - though only two were used in filming to my knowledge. Originally both models were made with static wheels in the flight position. They were both fitted with Bulbs to simulate the hover mode.
During filming they needed to have the wheels fold into the car at the end of the footage, so they took this model - removed the lights and made the articulated wheel system. The wheels would raise and lower via a stepper motor inside the chassis. They never bothered to make DMC Hubcap style inserts for the wheels.
any ideas on the grille at the driver side rear on the deck , some pics look like its 2 grilles with a bendy bar between them , other pics appear to show just the upper grille
thinking maybe its a shadow making me think theres a lower one?
The work on the model is amazing. Wish I had the talent and patience to do that.
can anyone help with screen used pics of the flux bands , espeicaly the front showing where the mesh is joined
Not sure it this helps... but here are a few sites that helped me....

Hey Steve, I found a decent pic of the front flux band. It was taken by my friend Ken, hope this helps.
Uh.... That's not an original Part I band is it?
