I dig it!


Thanks Lucas!

I think the port holes need some really cool scoops to accent them. Maybe some round one cut at an angle?


Thanks for the Suggestion!

Ira, the stuff you built for Car Model magazine 'way back was an inspiration for me and I'm glad to see you're still creating works of art. That is a neat project and thanks for sharing it with us.


Thanks for the kind words John!
So glad you like it... B)

BiG EXHAUST!!!

I reamed out a couple of holes in the Tailgate for the Ferrari Exhaust...

Posted Image

Next I glued sheet plastic behind. This makes attaching of the Exhaust Pipes easy.

Posted Image

I will probably cut the length of the Pipes down later...

ROCKET POWER!!!


I found some Brake Drums that are about the same size as the X-Wing Engines so I attached them on the rear...
