1/8 Citroen V8 traction maybe?

Postby kpnuts » Sat Mar 31, 2018 9:15 am

Hi all some of you may remember this

Image

Image

Well I did it originally purple and gold but the sun turned the gold to chrome and I hated that sooo, I thought I would try and give it a second chance.

It's going (if my skills are up to it) get this in it 

Image

Image

It means a LOT of work (gearbox tunnel to say the least)

Encase anyone has not seen this beast before on top is a 1/32 humber snipe I'm working on.

Hi all been messing about with wheels just can't decide does this look ridiculous
Image
Image
I really like the small wheels at the front but the rear (although bigger) I think don't look right in the wheel arches (of course I could remove the wheel arches)
Or if I mix wheel rims what about this
Image
Or keeping the same rims (Still smaller at the front)
Image
There is surprisingly very little difference on ground clearance at the front considering how much bigger these wheels are

Hi all well my soldering is world famous for being abysmally poor so here is my best effort at the headlight bar.

Image

I've installed the engine and radiator also done the wheels with the large at the front and small at the rear. Loads of connections still to me made to the engine and got to figure out the exhaust system.
