  1. 1948 Lincoln Continental

    The wheels are cleaned up and back together. Had to make a new hub for one.
  2. Racing, Hot Rod, truck and aircraft engines by FTB

    Pratt & Whitney ST-6 gas turbine as used in the Lotus 56 Indy Car.
  3. The gentleman who had commissioned a Porsche 962 to be done for display heard through the grapevine that FTB had done the Allison turbine from the GMC Astro. So he brought his Pratt & Whitney ST-6 which had been used in a Lotus Indy racer.
  4. Jaguar XJ 220

    It will be red.

    A short swim in the purple pond restored some whiteness to the whitewalls.
  7. Thank you Brian. Same here, while it wasn't a friend, it was a local man who had one in our village. I patterned mine after it, dark blue. I remember being fascinated by its rugged looks and the fact it was so different from the rest.
  8. Thank you Jacob, Dan, Andy,Jim and Peter.
  9. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    There was one of those not far from where I lived in the mid to late eighties. It was some kind of powder blue.

    Decided to use the '41 wheels anyway. Enlarged the wheel openings a bit.
  11. What did you see on the road today?

    Not quite on the road but close. A 3/4 ton 53 International with "borrowed" trim and a plywood tailgate. Anyone recognize the crest?

    She's a beauty. My uncle had one almost identical. Our bishop had a black one with red interior.
  13. OK Pat Thanks for gettin' back.  I already do.

    I did some measurin' & figgurin". The real cars have 16 and 15 inch wheels respectively. Which means 31" and 27.6" diameters. The 41 tire is 32.4 mm which in 1/24 works out to 30.5 inches. In 1/25 it represents 31.8". The 48's tire is 27.5 mm which in 1/25 represents 27". So the scale added to the different size it what amplfies the difference. So we'll have to play it by ear and hope it looks OK. Failing that, there's always mag wheels.
