Had to call it something and as much as I've cut on this one the title fits. It was an experiment to see if I could chop the top on a 1/8th scale, resin 1943 Willys pick up cab but has taken on a mind of it's own. So far I have chopped the top by 1/2 inch, sectioned the body in height by 1/4 inch, shortened the body in length by 1/4 inch and narrowed the body by 1/2 inch. Also narrowed the hood to match the new body proportions. Don't know where it's going from here but it will definately be one of a kind.

I've been working on the engine for this build and wanted to keep it "one of a kind".
This is what I came up with, a one off antique airplane style inline six.
It's rough but getting there.

Me likes!!! I really like the fact that it's air-cooled. That means no radiator! Grilles look so much better when you can see through them. :)

I took a Lindberg T frame and Z'ed it (not an easy task) stuck some bigs & littles with spun aluminum disk caps on it and did a mock up. She is now called "Po White Trash" and will be trimmed out in Boneville XXO trim.

Got some Webers and did a mock up on the six.
I'll finish them with metalizers and linkages.

This is really nice. The entire whip I mean. Can you give a short description of what the engine is made of?

The cylinders, heads, valve covers and timing cover are from an old Corvair trike kit Junkman.
I carved the block from resin and the side panels are resin.
The carbs & tubes are resin and the rest is from the parts box.
The pushrods are cut down 4 penny finish nails.
It was an experiment just to see if I could do something different with junkyard parts.
In fact this whole build has been an experiment just to do something completely off the wall.
