Great commentary, buddy, thanks. You bring up a good point. I normally like to make my build more playful than this, in other words, I usually don't glue too much down because I do like to take things apart . . . but with this build, I felt that it was s bit more delicate in that the ends of the frame tuck into the bumper wells, so it was a bit tricky to get the thing to sit down on the chassis. And I noticed the front and rear glass have a really thick lip that takes up space.

But these are issues that most of the time I learn to deal with over a series of builds. I still think that it's hard to beat the beauty and simplicity of working with say, the new '49 Merc, or the Willys, etc . . . those kits just fall into place.

I don't necessarily like big wheels, but I felt that for this build having something a bit different would make the whole thing more noticeable and striking . . .

Thanks, John . . . I appreciate the sentiment. Yeah, when I look on my shelf and I see the 14 or so Mercs and 8 or so '32s and 10 or so Willys, I think, yeah, I gotta do something different! B) :P :D :o

Your work always defies comparison (or description). It's like Salvador Dali taking a classic painting and doing his own spin on it. Great stuff.

Wow! It's amazing you got this kit to actually fit together properly, much less come up with an end result this cool! :unsure:

If H.R. Giger and David Aronson built models, I'd bet they'd resemble this one.

Thanks, Count Chocula! And all the CRANKYHEADS out there. You keep the inspiration a-rockin' and a-rollin' on this forum. If it weren't for the daily eye-candy allowance Our Good Doctor would have to go see a real DOCTOR! :D :lol: :lol:

Thanks, everyone. Jean-Jacques, they are dust and dirt gards they use in the States in these kinds of wheels to keep grime off the chrome . . . I think . . .

Thanks, Albert . . . lately I've been thinking that these boat-sized cars are perfect for all sorts of graphics . . . etc . . .

I missed this one the first time through. You, sir, are an artist with the air brush! Another very cool project.
