PARA-SCOOP!!!

I made a Parascope Scoop from rectangular plastic tubing. Here is the first piece of tubing in place, each end cut on an angle...

Here is the second piece in place. Both ends cut on an angle and one end is filled with plastic strip.

Then I sanded down the edges, to round them off a bit.

All Done!!!

WATCH OUT!!! There's a Bug on the desk!

What a difference between these 2 projects....working on both of them at the same time... B)

Man you have some really cool concepts. I wasn't sure I was going to like the vette front end on the hauler but I'll be ###### if you didn't make that flow with everything else and that vette hood scoop just looks tough. Can't wait to see it all finished, keep it up.

Thanks for the kind words Jason!

I've read the suggestions about making the front of the LSR car resemble a Corvette, and I can see it.. Squint just right and it could be transformed into something very similar to the factory Corvette SS sports Prototype from the late 50's.

Thanks Jim!

The shapes do look very similiar... B)

This thing is out of this world. Man, you sure are on a great roll here, Ira. The Styrene Muses are visiting you on a regular basis. What are you feeding them? :D
