Like the title says, you've probably already seen my 29 Pickup and also the go-kart. But now they're together in one big truck, kart sandwich. I also glued some clear lenses over the sucky chrome kit headlights. The clear parts glue took forever to turn from white to clear, but it finally happened about two weeks later.

You can get a kart kit from Replicas & Miniatures of Maryland and they advertise in Model Cars magazine of course as well as the "other" mag.

Thanks for the good words.

I didn't do a WIP on the kart, but I did post some pics and info in the Under Glass section a while back. With the exception of the seat which came out of the the AMT competition parts pack, the kart is all scratch built from raw materials (styrene, brass, aluminum, steel and rubber). Here's a link to the original post.

Here;s a couple of pics showing the slide-in rack which is also scratch built from styrene rod and sheet.

Great job on the truck and the kart, Alyn! They look good together. One question: I don't see a fuel tank on the kart. Am I missing it? Sorry if I'm nit-picking.

Thanks for pointing that out, Sam :(

I looked at a bunch of karts on line before starting this build and had definately decided to have a tank mounted in front of the steering mount upright. I'm not sure how or when that step tip-toed out of my brain, but it did. I've recently pulled the kart off the shelf to add a brake line and possibly a throttle cable. The tank will be added to the list for sure.

thanks for checking it out.

The cart and the truck look excellent. I'll have to look closer at the cart to try and duplicate it.

Thanks again, y'all

Jim, if you are interested in building a kart, here's a pic of the frame in the early stages of construction. It may give you an idea of how to get one started.

Sam, I built a gas tank tonight and a platform to go between the frame rails to hold it. I've been taking pics so I' ll be able to pull this back into the WIP section for the tank and other miscellaneous details. Keep an eye out if your interested.

Alyn - Those are some cool looking builds you've made there. I love the detail on the hot rod pick-up. That Kart looks great as well. You are giving me ideas on future builds.

Keep-up the great works.
