I decided to fabricate the rear wheel wells out of aluminum sheet.I rolled the sheets over various sizes of soup cans until they conformed.The slot is for the truck chassis I am using.

Looking good Philo! I remember when you started it. I think you had a couple of different versions you were thinking on. Looking forward to seeing what the final build will look like.

Ooooooooooo. Did that sound like you have something really nice planned and you're going to enjoy giving it to us one little section at a time? One Philo special build on the way.Wink

I remeber this project.  Glad to see it back on the bench.  At that scale can you pirate parts from 1/16 AMT kits for engine, interior etc?  What did you use for the frame?

Thanks,

John

The chassis is removable because I used 2-48 microbolts and the appropriate nuts   .

Was looking through a bunch of "RV's for the rich and famous" and saw one that had a garage sized door on the side. Open the door and a ramp slides out with your lamborgini or other toy. Another door in the back opens for a ramp on each side to lower your favorite cycles. I thought it might be a good idea to try to find out who owns it and give him a call to see if he would please adopt me. Wink
