Nice, never would have thought those big ol' tires would have turned out so well! Great building!

Tom, I had given up on both of those monster truck wheels. These (plan "C") were made from a pair of dualys from a salvaged OTR truck. I assume 1:24 scale.

Small update. The rear is cobbled on. Have to dress it and the tubs up yet because a lot of it shows  in those rear split windows.
 It's a roller now, but, I broke those front A arms a couple of times each. And it's obvious now, that I'll have to do some rework/sculpting on the front fenders to get the front down to where I like it, seein' as how I have to go with those stock tires !

Nice work! I was going to jokingly suggest you fill in the rear windows but that would eliminate the whole split window coupe thing. Can't wait to see what you with the front end as well.

With both upper and lower A arms being hinged, broke and repaired a couple of times, and flopping around all over, and, reversed, I got them horribly misaligned. I have cut off the spindles and mounted the wheels on tubing axle stubs. Keeping the A arms for a little realism effect.

Built up the 'humps" w/ plastic sheet and am in he process of sculpting contours with my standby, Bondo.
Sailing along according to plan, now that the wheel issue is settled.

Tell the truth, John, I dunno. larger scale, 1:20 - 1:16. Parts in a baggie, no instructions.

Have the tubs in place on the frame.
Doing the final surface touching up on the fender 'blisters' (Left has a coat of blue acrylic paint for a sanding guide)

Blisters are looking good. Is this how the classic Gran Sport evolved?

Fantastic modding! The wheel tubs remind me of something but I can't recall exactly what, some old concept car possibly. Looking forward to the development.

switching off to do some engine work. Wanted to add plug wires, made a dist, then made another with better sized wire.
Stock manifolds left no room for plug entry, so I probably have them wrong. Needed  headers for this hot rod anyway, so I made a set that would clear the spark plug holes I had drilled. My woven craft wire (thread) came into play again, and the collector is a soda straw (to be trimmed to fit inside the fender well. I will probably make an exit port behind the front wheels, somewhere.

Header material worked out nicely. Love the twin Potvin Blowers.
