Scott, Thanks. There is one other large scale car of mine in this forum "Fiat twin engine coupe"
I have a 27 Ford fuel modified roadster (salt flats car) almost finished. I will post that when it's done.

Bob, I could probably build one in about 6 weeks if I had a deadline, depending on the type of car.
The other 2 cars I'm doing have been about a year in the making. Because no kits or parts are available, I have to make all the bits.
Mike, I have imagined that too... :-)

Dave, thanks. Your rig is progressing nicely too.
pharoah, the body was made from styrene profiles and styrene sheet in all the areas I could bend without compound
forming. The compound shapes were done with styrene foam and Bondo to blend to the profiles.. Silicone rubber mold
and vinyl ester tooling gelcoat and VE laminating resin for the finished body. VE resin are low shrink and didn't warp the thin mold.

It's been a while since I posted updates on this car. I have been building two cars concurrently and will finish both about the time.
A shot of the engines. No oil stains yet.

Looking good, hope you made a load of those tiny parts while the mill was 'setup'.
The last time I made clevises and rod ends, I made many copies......just in case.
I think the hardest part about making these intricate parts is covering them with a shield or body panel.
