It looks like you can cast and supply an aftermarket parts market. That thing looks super cool.

The welding bead & heat stain detail on the header tubes is most impressive.

Care to share your technique?

In my head, I can hear that motor choppy idleing & barking in my ear. 

 

Is this a steel frame car, as well?   B)

Thank you all for commenting.

 

Ognib, The chassis for this car is RHS 18 gauge ERW steel tube. The exhuast pipes are Plastruct tube and elbows and the welds" are superglue mixed with talc.

 

Harry P, thanks for the kind words, It's what I do for a living.....make stuff. As to this project, it's just about finished except for a few little things like putting on the door handles etc.  Here is a current pic with a girl I prepared earlier.  :)

Bob, I could probably build one in about 6 weeks if I had a deadline, depending on the type of car.

The other 2 cars I'm doing have been about a year in the making. Because no kits or parts are available, I have to make all the bits.

 

Leonard, thanks

 

Mike, I have imagined that too... :-)

Scott, Thanks. There is one other large scale car of mine in this forum "Fiat twin engine coupe"

I have a 27 Ford fuel modified roadster (salt flats car) almost finished. I will post that when it's done.

Amazing work. Are any parts bolted together or is it all glued ? Just curious.

Dave, excuse the late answer. All of the metal bits are bolted together and some of the major plastic parts.

At this size they get heavy.
