Front clip is one piece glass, lengthened about 10".
Box is a little longer than original, handmade aluminum side panels, plus
the tail extensions and Wing.
The original Tailgate is mounted inside the Box and supports the Parachute and some electrics.

Looks great. I'm always interested in a drag racing paper model.

Gonna gloss over that last post...

a. the pics are way too big...minus 5 points to John for posting them that large.
b. Not a fan of trikes - Toddlers ride Trikes...minus 10 points for it being a Trike
c. Looks better without the Body...minus 5 points for the Body design
Bonus...minus 10 points for the Paint job! I have no idea whats going on there, but I don't like it.


all in good fun John
...............

Hey John...are we getting closer to the big day? What number we at now?

...............

KoolWheelz updates:


Hey, all you Blade Runner fans!
Sharpen up those Blades...uncap that Glue bottle!

How about we start with Deckards Ground Spinner!



Funny thing...I did the prototype white build (posted earlier) and everything went together beautifully!
But I wanted to adjust the roof angle...just a tad.
So I stretched a line...which means I have to stretch another line...
which leads to minor adjustments for all surrounding parts.

Then I realized I had "stretched" in the wrong direction.
And I had done too many steps...I couldn't back it up!
When I tried to assembly the model again, it was a disaster.
The original prototype was lost and the new design didn't work.

So...luckily I had the white build still sitting on the table...
I cut it open, laid it flat, scanned it...and voila!
Thats French for "see, I know what I'm doin'!"

Anyway, the final (coloured) Ground Car turned out great!





hmmm...wonder what should come next?
