Here's one that's finally done. Is been in and out of the box over the last few years. Never could find the right color for it. Finally figured it out. Changed out the rear wheels and tires. Added a different scoop that was more to scale, and scratch built some zoomie headers. Thanks for looking. 39326918715_495aab9f3d_k.jpg20180212_101637 by Jason Foster, on Flickr 25353670357_c230168127_k.jpg20180212_101719 by Jason Foster, on Flickr 25353698267_94c54903fe_k.jpg20180212_101903 by Jason Foster, on Flickr 39513505834_6bb98ef7bc_k.jpg20180212_101803 by Jason Foster, on Flickr

VERY nice.

 

Always thought this was one of Ivos better looking rides. And wanted to build one ,,,just because. But cheated a few years back and found a screaming deal on a 1320 diecast

It's 3/32 plaststruct tube. Part number 90603. It has a fairly thick wall, so it does not kink when bending. I use a lighter to heat and bend the tubing. I use a homemade jig made of thick sheets of styene to make the bends and cuts all the same. I need to make a tutorial on how to make the complete header. 26396653878_43a7db1791_k.jpg20180214_144449 by Jason Foster, on Flickr 39371392175_a824144807_k.jpg20180214_144947 by Jason Foster, on Flickr
