Recommended Posts

That could have worked but I am just about done with the kit engine and will go with that. Thanks

This kit has one set up for a mid-engined configuration, and it's a slightly simplified replica of the prototype helicopter engine installation in the Howmet Turbine Car. These kits can often be found for what you'd pay for just a good resin engine.

That looks nothing like the real car!

Bottom pic is the FIA Championship for Makes entry, the model kit depicts the American SCCA Can-Am entry.

Here is some more info.

Chuck Haines (sort of my boss) does not own either car anymore

The 1/25 MPC Indy turbine car has a nice engine & it is not too big.  That kit has been reissued a number of times in the last twenty years.  Not hard to find for under $25.
