I like how you've adapted the engine to fit into the C1 body.  Bet your mate's car really shifts!

Nice start, I'm looking forward to seeing how your paint turns out on those curvy lines of the '37!

Well done on passing your test!  I work as a driving instructor in Wolverhampton, England.  It is a shame that a minority of young drivers wreck it for the rest but there is not much we can do about it - unless someone successfully challenges ageism in the European courts like they did a couple of years ago with sexism (stopping companies charging less for women).  Approaching driving properly is almost an art form - I still come across new situations and I have been driving for 30 years!


Now get onto more important things - model building!

Now we're talking- a few pressies in the back and the picture would be perfect!

Thanks for the comment on my '32 pro street - its a build that was started in 2011 but got the motivation to finish it for our pickup theme on our SIG table at Scale Model World.


I used three sets of fenders to get the wide arches at the back - if you're interested I'll get some pictures up if you would like to do a similar thing for your project.  These fenders restrict the tyre size - but the ones from the Revell Willys Street Rod kit go in nicely.  If you wanted larger wheels it would mean fabbing larger fenders and wheel wells on the body.
