Usually I like to build serially, but lately I've been getting the itch to try some other things while I'm hung up on other projects. I have been dying to try working with some brass since I was given a rack of metal last year. I thought a good first project might be a replica based on parts and dimensions of a die cast midget I bought a few years back. I wanted to see if any of the parts would be a help to me in building my dad's midget he had back in the '80s. I'm not quite ready to start that project, but I thought instead I might modify the die cast to resemble my little brother's midget he raced in Indiana back around 2008. Most of the project will be scratch-built or contain parts from Monogram/Revell sprint car kits.
Here's a few shots of my brother's car:
