PARA-SCOOP!!!

I made a Parascope Scoop from rectangular plastic tubing. Here is the first piece of tubing in place, each end cut on an angle...

Here is the second piece in place. Both ends cut on an angle and one end is filled with plastic strip.

Then I sanded down the edges, to round them off a bit.
All Done!!!

This thing is out of this world. Man, you sure are on a great roll here, Ira. The Styrene Muses are visiting you on a regular basis. What are you feeding them? :D

Hi Mike,

I use Squadron Products "White Putty" in small areas. I also try to match the plastic pieces as close together as possible, so I will need less putty.

Youve got a bigger and better imagination than i did when i was 5. You like red and black do yah? My high school colors are red and black maybe i should do up a Chardon tribute car. something classy yet simple because chardon is rich and its got a great deal of country folk too. anyway enough of my rambling love this build as much as the cordvette will be watching itt.
