Just needed to make a hemi................it is a little overscale for the coupe body but it has a nice mass to it. :P

 

Tires need to be found for this,,,,a sample is shown here...............please comment to let me know what you think,,,good or bad. :wacko:

Thanks for the comments,,,I have a photo to show size of the front wires to give you an idea of the actual size.

It gives a good look at what can be done. I do have to make a different a different board for this wheel tho. I need to have fewer pegs for lacing and closer to the center. I have to conserve on the wire I use :lol: .

 

Kenn :rolleyes:

I went shopping today in the big city and got a new cutting board and a cheap plastic "T" square. Now I can cut straight lines and accurate 90* angles..... :lol:

 

DSCN4205_zpscda17dca.jpg

 

The "T" square inches line up with the cutting mat but on the half inch but still a nice feature that was a surprize :P

Getting to the interior on this one today.....not sure about it. I made it swoopy and austeir (sp).

Did do a ceiling liner for this one, nothing complicated thinking is that is offsets the busy motor.
