I have not posted for a while,this took me about 18 month's to build on and off.it started as the thurn and taxis show truck from revell I decided to use the sleeper from the canepa kit and slightly modified it. the tank's are from mt part's box,I filled the join lines amd made them all one peice,I also did ther same with the air cleaner barrel's and used BMF around the strap's. On the exhaust stack's I drilled out every hole and used aluminium tubing to finish them off,the antenna's are guitar wire,the mudflap's are from a material I found at a craft store and is simular to rubber.

  7. I built this as a no big name car just something you would put together and go racing. The donar kit I used was the Tony Nancy Loner,I made my own radius rod's out of aluminum rod as I have never been happy with the one's from the kit. The wheel pant's I got from a friend of mine and the rear body section and cowl I got from comp resin's,I also put a bigger dish on the rear wheel's. Paint is candy apple red finished with gold pinstriping and automotive clear. Cheers Tony.
