Here are 2 variations on the Big T. Next one will be a super low-budget, built in the backyard-type late 50s-early 60s rail.

It's "Odds and Ends" pewter over black.

The photo is a little dark. The wheels are actually a bit lighter, and the body is burgundy red.

Wow, love the look of the first one. Does the recent reissue come with the cheater and Tthrusts?

I did a little mix and match between the reissued Big T and Big Deuce (which is now marketed as a 32 highboy). IIRC, the slicks are in the Big T kit but I took the wheels from the highboy (Bid Deuce) kit.

Excelent work Harry. I like the subtle little changes you've done to all three, especially the Deuce.

I love that first one...shiny. :)

We need wheels and tires of that quality in our 1/25 Revell kits. They're beauties.
