    Added some update pix- the chassis is now rolling and the engine is mostly done except for the drive belts. The carb manifold is still loose so I can add fuel lines and carb linkages and route them to the fire wall after final assembly. I am discovering that breaking down construction into smaller, specific projects helps me focus and actually make progress- never too old to learn!

    plasti-kote paint
    I am looking for cans of plasti-kote body shop paint #1059 maroon. This paint line is no longer made. It's one of my favorite colors and I need more for a current project. Any help would be appreciated.
     
    Thanks,

    What a long strange trip its been........ We are now living in Indiana, and the project is still a project! Still working on figuring out door hinges, how the exhaust will clear the frame, how the hood sides will clear the front ends of the Ardun heads, and how final assembly will go with a multi-piece body. When I make more progress I will try to post some pictures. In the meantime I restored a glue bomb AMT streamlined go kart with Norm Weber's help. I hope to post a few pix of this too. It's good to be back after way too long.

    I have a junker I plan on rebuilding. Currently gathering parts. Hope it turns out half as nice as yours! BTW, is the trailer from a kit, or scratch built?

    Augie Hiscano and Gerald Wingrove would be proud! You ought to show this gem without paint for a few years, just so people can appreciate the fabulous workmanship. Thank you so much for sharing in so much detail.

    Cranky,

    This one caught my interest. I build 40's style hot rods, raced at the dry lakes. The lakesters and modified were single seat narrowed to about the width of a stock 32 grille shell. Depending on how old school you want to go, consider an Offy 4 banger or Ford model T or A engine with some vintage speed equipment- maybe a Frontenac head on the T block? The Revell ratrods pickup kit would have a lot of potential doner parts and the new midgets look promising. Anything v-8 would stick way out beyond the body envelope, and make the narrow body kind of pointless. Just thought of another possibility- how about the engine from the Monogram Bugatti T-35b kit?

    Cranky, I crown you the King of Weathering! Thanks for sharing the great tips and techniques as well as the tantalizing photos of projects we haven't seen elsewhere!

    Cranky, we too have a chihuahua named Emma- sweetest little pup you could want- a real eye roller! Keeps our toy poodle Abbie company- they are best buds! By the way, can't wait to see the new project!

    Cranky, the aerodynamics alone are mindboggling...........................your builds absolutely define fun and creativity in model building! There is also the possibility you are the ultimate kit basher!
