More chassis work done.  1/4 elliptic rear springs and coil-overs for the front.
I found a bag of MPC or Monogram funny car chassis parts which have proved usefull.

No pics as it doesn't look to different to the last one.

I have started work preparing the body shell and more small pieces of plastic have been attached to the chassis.

Began scratchbuilding wheelie bars today using some 1/72 aircraft nose wheels I pulled out of the parts box.  No idea what they are off.
Also applied filler to the chassis rails and body.

Cor, those sprung wheelie bars look the business.  :thumbsup:

Did you scratch them or did they come from a kit somewhere?

Thanks Kit.  They are scratched.  Wheels are 1/72 aircraft nose wheels and the springs are the wire I use for 1/25 plug wires wound round the rod.

Baby steps.  I have been building the interior panelling and have realised I need to have the engine fully built up to make sure it all fits.
So i've been working on the double blower induction set-up.
