Something about the back ground screams model to me. Just doesn't look right.

Pretty close vote: 25 REAL, 33 MODEL.

It's a MODEL! 1/8 scale, scratchbuilt (not a kit).

When you look REAL hard, the 2x4's in the background shelf unit are just TOO out of scale with the car. At least that was one of my reasons for goin with model. Harry's SHARP, so you gotta look at EVERYTHING, NOT just the car itself. B) :D

So that would make it an under the bed find instead of a barn find, eh? B)

Those detail shots would have been a dead giveaway that it was a model. The hardware is out of scale and the wirewheels are a bit crude. The patination is perfect and the overall look is excellent.

Totally correct.

The giveaway to me was the tires seemed awfully round. No flat-spots or signs of distress after sitting neglected for that long? No sign of weight ballooning the bottom of the tire out at all. Yet, since they showed weathering those would have been the tires it sat on all that time. Just didn't look right.


Totally correct also


But this is exactly why I love this game.....what is the builders name..????

Can't tell you, because I may use more of his work in the future. B)

And after looking at the photos again, I'd say the model is bigger than 1/8. Maybe 1/6 or so???
