thnx B)

i thought the racer was too clean , like something was missing .
i usually dont like flames on cars but these where the best option i had from what i had lying around .
and well when they where on i really liked it.
the decals have had a mild white wash to blend in with the salt weathering ..

and made a bar on the back of the racer where the truck's pushbar can push against

thnx guys , and no i have not started teh trailer , i'm curently looking for a cheap old trailer to use the parts from , hope to get one very very cheap as i find a kit to expensive for what i am planning , most will be scratch and a all wooden floor (real wood) also i will put smaller siz wheels on it from my partsbox so i can keep the floor low and make a gooseneck , so the base can be an old trailer from any kind

thnx !!

well this racer is made out of an old left over busted body and some spare parts i could find (even some stuff out of a old formula 1 kit)
one day i def. want to make a noher one and then use a full kit so i can really make a big project out of it.
this racer was actually done just to put on the trailer and as a test for salt weathering ..

i'm also planning on making a belly tank racer and maybe score a old airplain kit and use the hull of the plain as a body :)

Nice work, Richard! You really made something special out of those old parts. The truck looks terrific as well!

Great work. I just read the whole thread. Looking forward to the trailer build and seeing the whole vision complete!

 

It's also good to see that I'm not the only one who changes direction during a build!
