Nice job there Bruce. Even better being from “scratch”.

You need to put it on a Perspex pedestal. With all that detail (including the underneath) it’d be a shame not to advertise it, but “clumsy handling” by eager enthusiasts is prone to “mechanical breakdown”.

Wuz da “51”s scrolled? With 3 to do, my last one would have finished up 53.

Love the detail in the race car, very different from what we see downunder….
It’s quite a coincidence I’m currently watching American Pickers TV show and they are picking for the NASCAR Hall of Fame, North Carolina.
It’d be a cool place to visit one day.

“You need to put it on a Perspex pedestal. With all that detail (including the underneath) it’d be a shame not to advertise it, but “clumsy handling” by eager enthusiasts is prone to “mechanical breakdown”.”

How about a case with a mirror for the bottom at a slight angle then you could see under it but no touchy.
OOO!!! and an outstanding project for sure!

Man wouldn’t it be a ball to race that thing around!!!
