Got the engine built and fabbed the headers. Using a Tyrone Malone Allison transmission for mock up before I resin cast it.

this is pretty cool :)  everytime I see the title to this topic it reminds me of the show 'family guy', if you know the show, you'll get it B)

 

can I offer a suggestion? the headers, I think they would look cool if they were shorter and came out of your 'fuselage' portion of the body. just throwing that idea out there.

 

looks cool, keep at it. also, when done, do you hang it up like air craft, or park it like a truck?? :P

To the Peter-copter!! Ha! Yes, I was thinking the same thing.

I appreciate the input. Im open to all ideas and suggestions. To make a couple of silly puns, Im really flying by the seat of my pants with this one, and kinda goin where the wind takes me. It started as a simple drawing and has led to this. Every time I finish a small part of the build, I have no idea what Im going to do next. Thats kind of the fun in hows its turning out. I might leave the headers as is, or I might bend them upwards. I dont think Im going to run them thru the body because Im doing that on my drag truck. But who knows what will happen! Stay tuned!


As for how Im going to display it, how about a flatbed that is made into an aircraft carrier?

Thanks Sean. With a truck build I can usually envision the finished truck down to every detail. With this build, the idea was so off the wall that I had to sketch it to even know where to start. This whole build is new territory. The plane kit made me feel like a ten year old sitting down with my first model again, even though I didnt use that much of it.
