I built one of these in '67 or '68 for my little brother. I bought this one from e-Bay for a stress relief project. It is built old-school with tube glue. I brush-painted it with whatever enamel paints that were lying around on the bench at the time. I like him. He is my modeling mascot now, as he sits where he can watch me butcher plastic at my bench. Adios, Larry.

Looks great! I'd love to score one of those! I was lucky to meet Ed at the 1963 Oakland Roadster show. Bought a sweatshirt from him that had "Mothers Worry" on it.
