I"m not sure if I ever posted a photo of this thing on C&G.

Here's a comparison of a stock model compared to my "Rat Rod" hackjob.

Entirely too wicked for the general public.

Thank You.

It was a very easy project to complete but it took me about a year to do little at a time as I gathered up all the individual pieces I needed. Most of the stuff was scrap or unused pieces from 1/48 scale planes & 1/25th scale cars. At some point I'm going to make a replica of the "Tiger Hunt V16". That will be a much more ambitious project as most of the body will have to be made from scratch.

Fun...I saw something sort of like this over the weekend in 1:1. It was a rod built w/ a 2 seat '30 Dodge roadster body and a '31 Cadillac V16 (long, narrow engine). It was sitting at a car show, pretty outrageous...the body was almost over the rear axle, kind of 'cab backward'..

Yeah that would be sweet, I love the air shows for the sounds of war birds too bad the prop wash masks the beautiful sound of those engines.
