Just started this new project, and I don't have any idea on what I will make... This is the fun! At least for me, build something just for fun. Probably I should draw something just to have some reference... I'm getting old, and my mind has difficult to keep all my ideas... :-)

For now I made this...

There is no tire yet, only the wheels, and it is little more than 2.8in.

Will mirrors be used along with the smoke?


Like the song? :D:D:D A mirror will be good for driving it, like in any other vehicle so I think to put it, about the smoke, I don't know if I can make it, to have a real effect in the model, but I will try to make it.
