    I've been working on this Swift DB-1 Formula Ford model for years, and finally got it to this point, which is essentially complete except for the body, and the 6-point harness. Since a lot of people are in lockdown, I thought this might provide a moment's distraction. Hope you enjoy!

    Heah! That's pretty cool! Looks like a lot of work!! Assemblies look pretty complicated, do you have access to one?

    Mostly plastic? 1/8th or 1/10th scale?

    1/8th scale [20 inch long], welded steel frame, machined aluminum and brass rims, rubber tires cast with Smooth-On rubber, cast plastic motor, and yes, it took years and lots of measurements. My friend has one I can reference from.
