    1913...A Vintage Racing Car in 1/48 scale.

    Hi again...

    Here a little car, born in my dreams of course!!! It does not exist! Build from spares excusively (90%) and all the rest had to made from scratch!!! Lots of Fun indeed!

    SO...

    Here is my idea on paper.scratch 



    Here U can see what I used for the car



    The first steps ...before disaster!!!









    The first colors on... Alclad chrome first, then 4-5 lights coats of clear red.




    Then...my fingerprint was enough to send it directly to the Mars...lol! 

    Once again...








    Finally...I managed to finish it. A little led is connected with a small switch into the engine. I decided to spray it with a satin varnish than a gloss one. I wanted a vintage look.

    It was a very Funny build, and the most important thing to me was that everybody can build unbelievable models, using his useless spare parts!!!

    You DO have a soft spot for cars Alex and the vintage type. I still remember one of the very first of your models which i saw was the rolls royce.
