Hello......I am starting this 1/16 Scale Don Garlits Wynnsliner......My friend Keven Ellis 3D printed the body and Tires ......My Buddy Brad Norgaard AKA "Gasser 59" Donated the engine for the build......and of course I will be using some Chris Sobak Designs parts on this build......Decals were printed by Gary with Circle Track Decals......I will be using parts box parts and will be scratch building parts......I just finished this 1/12 Air Radial Bike  you can see Curt Ratz and my Bike in WIP "All the Rest" section......thanks for looking

I've been really looking forward to seeing another of your projects hit the bench John.  Back over Christmastime I spent an enjoyable few days going through the dozens of excellent build threads that you've posted here in the past...I've since referred back to them on multiple occasions and continue to re-read them frequently for inspiration.

Can't wait to see this one come together!

Hello......Thank you all so very much for the kind comments......I really do appreciate them......I got the two body half's married together and hinged the canopy.......I modified the chassis  and scratch built the front end ......thank you to Chris "Sobak Designs" for drawing me up a pair of rear wheels and had them 3D printed for me.......I added the driver and made a roll bar cover and made some frame tins.......I got the parachutes mocked up......I will work on the engine next......thanks for looking.

Hi Sir!

Impressive work, as usual. This full-bodied liner reminds me of the Barry Setzer monocoque fueler that you recreated a few years ago. Simply stunning!

Keep On!

PS: What happened to the monocoque Mickey Thompson FC you started last year? Just curious...

Hi Claude......My Mickey Thompson F/C is ready for paint and primer......when Covid hit I stopped building for awhile.......then I decided to get back to the bench a few months ago......I wanted to build  about 3 builds to get back my Mojo......then finish up the Mickey Thompson F/C cause that car is my all time favorite and wanted to be in the groove before I finished it.......I have one more model I want to build after the Wynnsliner then I'll be ready to finish it.......thanks for asking.

Impressive  progress on this project, I really like the way you are approaching it.  You have mentioned Chris Sobak Designs  a couple of times, is he producing model parts commercially?

It's been a while since we've seen you John and it's refreshing to see you back in action!  There's no doubt about it, you're not the type to work on the most common car models and it's great to see!  Glad to see you back in the saddle, the next weeks are looking good! 😊
