It's crazy. Got the clip from a text a freind sent me and I can't get the thing into a format that'll work. Even my 16 yr old can't get it to work, so... Bad quality anyway. I'll make my own.

Sounds awesome, I hope you make it and run, it would be a joy to see, even if only on youtube. Although I have dreams too, so maybe one day I see it in person.

Fair warning. If you go you'll be a hopless case until you can bring a car next time!

That chassis design you've got could really tame that orchard course, if you could find the right inspiration car to fit on it. Maybe not this year, but...

Mark.You can see zoomed in the strip planking but I neglected to get pictures of the framework beneath.The tight compounds are carved from foam.

I WOULD LOVE TO MAKE THIS SAME MODEL. Any chance you have your drawings still and would like to share them?

Comment by Dave D
Russ, I literally layed my frame out in sharpie on my work table (still there) and scaled up the bulkhead stations from a small 3 view drawing on smcars.net. and drew right on the material. Most of the body is just eyeball sculpture. I really should take molds from it before I wreck anything. Even if I built another one,It would come out a little different.and have to start from scratch again.

Oh Bud, I missed you somehow. Thanks.I wanted the nose long like the real one.Hope I can keep on there for a while!
