Randy D Posted September 8, 2016 Share Posted September 8, 2016 (edited) Hi Folks, New project, building a 1/24th scale model of what I feel is one of the prettiest cars ever raced. Four cylinder in-line motor rated at 250 h.p. along with an incredibly light chassis topped with ally body work. The famous 'Birdcage' that weighs less than a hundred lbs. A start on the chassis using 'Albion Alloys' nickel silver thin walled tubing. Sizes range from .9mm down to .3mm. I build the base, then using basswood 'scaffolding' erect the rest of it...... I am going to try to build the body from sheet stock that is soldered together. I did some basic metal forming with the wrecker project and enjoyed it and want to see what I can do with this one. I have started some trial runs making fenders, figuring that if I can do those I will move forward with the rest........ Long ways to go but I'm at the bench and having fun!
