Hello. Been away from building for a while and my last built finished in February is a Mini Legend as we run them here in Quebec Province and north east of USA. I posted here as they run on same asphalt ovals as the LMS and Spormans classes on small oavls.
These are small race cars built around a motor bike 4 cylinders engine. They are pretty quick and give a great show.
I built a frame and reduce on both axes, a resin body of a 32 Ford. The engine comes from a Tiki Trike kit and the wheels are Nascar's, BF Goodrich were used back then. Made mt own decals too.

Very cool, skilled build. I love how all the thought you put into the technical aspects of the model shine through in the final result. Bravo!

Ha, Signmike, glad to see you again!! :lol: I guess I didn't really even realize that they had nerf bars, guess they'd have to. I was just so impressed with your usual good work and the uniqueness of the project. Great pics, great topic, great car. Thanks.

Yes no room for inventing or designing, Now the all look alike. but around here they kept the craftsmanship but with strict rules. No more BF Goodrich, too hard to find in the proper style.
