Nobody would know that is not the real engine, in the real car, Kenneth..... if you hadn't told them it was a model !

This model car seems to look good from every angle, Kenneth....... and as it nears completion you must feel very proud of it.

How do you close the bonnet on the exhaust side? Nice overall shape and look, if the front wings were closer to the wheels. The wooden body is nicely done but doesn't fit the Blower era. Too Edwardian.

Lose the wood and paint it all red, drop the front wings and wrap the Brooklands silencer in asbestos tape and it would be stunning.

But that's just my opinion!

Cheers,

Outstanding work! Could easily be mistaken for a real car and not a model!

And the last photo, from the front, looks fabulous.

I particularly like this photo of yours, Kenneth....... very realistic from that angle, and lots of front end detail.
