First of all this was my real world trike.

In order to make an omlette a few eggs must be broken,I filled in the gaps with resin.

Do you have a "Dremel Tool", (or something similar) Nigel. As that would have the roof ribs off in seconds.

More 49 for you Ken!
Got the wheels sorted,they came from the parts box so dont ask what they are!
Image

They look pretty smart methinks.
Image

The engine is sorted too,it is a tiny V10 from a Viper...

Ran into a curious problem today,one rear wheel was sticking out too far and upon checking the prob I noticed that the stubs were a different length...Image

It was easily solved by trimming one side of the axle.

Just a shot of the engine.

That's what people used to do with their real cars, back in the 70's-80's, when putting wider wheels on their cars, out here, to keep them legal.
