Hi! After lurking this forum a couple of days i decided to make my first thread.

As the title says its a little different, so if its under the wrong category mods can move it.

Hopeless gluebomb with no sight of rescue that i inherited of my dads old workmate, built and rebuilt over and over again.

Counting now when stripping it, at least five layers of paint..

Shades of the "Pissed-off Pete" Hot-rod truck. That's about all that could be done to this old GlueBomb White. Nice recycling job! I don't quite recognize the engine you have there, would you care to give some details?

Thanks a bunch both of you!

Its a random engine found in a partsbox. The kit engine had lost to many parts and had so much old glue on so it was like a square box, no details. Thought this looked a little better, gearbox is from the kit though.
