Just wondering, how much time do you have in this?
Hi there vintageford I started this about 18 years ago and it took me about 2 1/2 - 3 years to build. I did a build book to take to the GSL contest in Salt Lake City, keeping track of the time and pictures of the progress.
The book says I had a bit more than 2000 hours in it.
It was crazy, but it was fun too.
Thanks for asking. I hope everyone has a great new year. Dave
You, uh, BUILT the body, like out of sheet styrene or something?
To say I am impressed would be a major understatement. To me, this is magic. That's what they call stuff that is so far advanced as to not be explainable: magic. F'n magic in the realm I used to dwell in.
That thing is beautiful and the idea of building a separate chassis with running gear to display alongside of it is genius.
Fantastic work making a model out of something that doesn't exist as a model kit or resin or anything else. Very nicely done. Excellent details on the engine bay and chassis finish it off. Even though it's too modernized for my taste, I have to say I really like the craftmanship on this one! Excellent work!
jbwelda: is that what that is, a jo-han kit? sure looks great! have never had one of those classics jo-han kits but have always heard great things about them. My late friend Harry used to rave about them.

jbwelda: thanks for featuring my most Uncertain T! Not bad for starting with a couple piles of (expensive) junk!
