well in that build thread someone mentioned the resin body i used had actually been sourced from a ROG BMW 3/15 so i had to go out in search of one:
with the idea that i would build a make believe british hot rod with a more trad look: full fenders, usa vintage speed equipment, but very british wheels and a lotus twin cam motor. unfortunately i had to ditch the brit wheels aspect as i considered lotus wobbly webs, jaguar d-type drilled wheels, and my original thought, southeast finecast photoetch MGB wires. all proved too tall for the look i was after so i ended up using some pewter fenton rears from "dude tek" (love that name, mastered by bob dudek so it makes complete sense but i was practically literally lol-ing for a long while on it), and some resin halibrand spokes from reps and mins of maryland.
and heres a look at the motor laid inside the body, currently in silver undercoat waiting for a chrome yellow in the next couple days:
anyway i will post some more pics in the days to come, and this one ought to wrap up in another month or so if i keep at it...
as always, thanks for looking!!!
