I do think I've seen the kart before...mostly scratch built?

Love the truck but where'd that kart come from?
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.

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.

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.

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.
