Heres a few pics of my first real modified model that i have built many moons ago (about 20 years ago). Has a twin carbed 440 big block with detailing and modified the pro-stock baretta chassis to fit. Have a few detailing bits to finish otherwise it is finished. Cheers and thanks for looking.

Very cool rig.  I'd never seen a Thames done like that, I like it!  Great work.

Thanks guys for all the replys. Was thinking of stripping it latter on down the track to rebuild it to a better standard but have decided that some should be kept to show the progression during the years and will try to find another one, already have an engine, paint, wheel and tyre combo thought out with a scratch build chassis. Cheers

Don't strip it! It's a great build that deserves to survive!  Good choice on finding another one.

B)

Yes, I must agree with leaving the Thames as is!

It shows Your growth as a builder and it has it's own unqnie charm!

Thank You for sharing

Later

Well the replys have given me the motivation to get another one going so stay tuned as there might be another wilder one on the way with carbon hat and the works. Cheers
