Hi Mr Mini man!

 

You're certainly "banging" some builds out. Great work btw!

 

I often wish that I could  just pick up a kit and build/paint/finish in a week, like I used to......but, scratchbuilding took over my life!!! Now, If I can't make it myself, then it's not worth having a go at!!! :D

 

Cheers, H

Jeez!

That motor looks tiny on that long frame.

What goes in all the empty space?

Maybe some kind of aeroplane engine, like an Allison V12? ;)

Two v8's ???

Nose to tail or joined at the crankshaft?

W16 engine FTW!

Seems to me that  somebody did a tank motor that was essentially four V8 motors all joined around a common crankshaft.

Sherman?

I am still getting use to video editing - self confessed  computer thicko here!!!

 

I do a lot of thinking in bed and this has changed  quite a  bit..She  now has duallies at the rear,a somewhat bigger engine and has turned  into a hot rod - it was originally going to be a banger/dd car!

Here's what an Allison in a Phantom is supposed to look like. And you need to change the steering to LHD with chain drive to the steering box. Pocher Sedanca by David Cox:
