SCREAMING YELLOW ZONKER

It's fully articulated as you can see by the way I've posed it in the pics.
All the pieces snap together (there's a bunch of 'em), ball & socket joints etc.
If you're asking if one could be purchased somewhere...I have no idea.
I searched the net a few times quite a while back but never came across another.

Has anyone told you that you're a sick puppy, Don? I'm lovin' this build.
Jim, besides being a grumpy old fart, just about anyone who knows me figures I've inhaled way too much high octane vapor.

Anyway......if I had to be right up front in harms way with bones driving this thing, I do believe I'd look a little concerned.

Aww shucks...you don't like the goofy face Adam?....how 'bout if I tweak it little......
Just kiddin' pal, I will be using the shell (NO EYE BALLS) but the mask will be white and there will be a black hood and cape that I'm going to try to flow back to the fire wall before the paint goes to screaming yellow.

Block pieces tacked together with CA.
I cut some strips of thin aluminum to cover the seams.
Mixed up and spread some JB weld (quick set) over the seams and imbedded the aluminum into it while still wet. Before it dried I smeared some more epoxy over everything.
Same procedure for all the seams inside the block. Ain't pretty but it's strong and it'll never see the light of day again once the block is closed up.

Shot some more primer and it's starting to look pretty decent......but I'm not feeling it yet, too smooth....I want it to look like a cast iron block....I'll deal with that next post.

This particular paint has a texture that isn't so coarse that it looks way out of scale.
Yellow of course........
Now I'll have to fab up some heads, intake and a trans.
