My next project - should I wish to accept it - build the wonderfully quirky Pegaso Thrill.

Pegaso being a Spanish car, is that the hood ornament in the background?!?!? Seriously, any thoughts yet on a starting point?

I thought the red guy was a display by Merrill Lynch ...

The symbol for Pegaso is a pegaso - a flying horse. Here's the logo - very stylish.

Looking forward to seeing this build,  growing up in Spain during the 1960 & 70's, Pegaso trucks and buses were everywhere ,so it's a brand I know well.

Part will be easy, part will be challenging. I have a 1/24th scale slot car body of a Pegaso Z 102 from CricCrac, a slot car shop in Barcelona, Spain. The front of the Thrill is close to the Z 102, the rear will require major surgery. Here is the kit, and the slot car.

The Thrill has a prominent beltline running rather low, and forming the tops of the wheel openings,  which I'm replicating with a strip of .040" glued and pegged into the body.

I don't understand the pegs. Isn't glue enough?

When I build, I build to last forever.

That is a cool car. I wouldn’t mind doing one in 1/24 or 1/25 scale. Heh.... reminds me something Jay Leno would add to his collection.

Made a mold, of Apoxpy Sculpt, to form the flying buttresses over. Flying buttress is an architectural term but used in other contexts; so I'll use it here.
