The car I'm trying to build is Dick Kraft's Bug, but the Flathead parts will also be used in a '32 3 window coupe when I get a Revell body sorted out and a decent '32 frame made. Painted parts are Molotow and my first ever painted parts.

Looking very interesting my friend. You have all the basic components there for a really cool speedster. I'll be watching closely.

This is very exciting. While we don't all have access to 3D printing at the moment, I can see the future of car modelling, and it looks very bright!

Wheels will change to real wire spokes since I can't print them to 1:25 scale.  Chose this model because it is simple requiring  the least number of detailing skills.  I'm a novice at model building.

Been working on the chassis, but not finished.  Have to model the front axle and steering box next.  For such a simple car there's still a BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH load of details to make.

I'd like to see some close-ups of that engine block and related parts. Those look fantastic from the pictures you posted.
