    The rear tires look a bit narrow. You need wider ones.

    That's funny Busted...been thinkin' about 2 blowers......except side by side similar to Carl Casper's "Ghost"'. I'm not sure what scale to call this....it'll be a mix of 1/12th & 1/8th parts, lots of distortion.......like I said "no rules". Guess I 'll just call it large scale.

    You'd have to use radar to get that thing down the strip. Talk about air compression.

    I have a little time to tinker this afternoon (therapy, helps prevent burn out), so let's start at the front with the grille shell. Below is a sketch of the kit chunk o' plastic and beside it is what I want to do with it.

    Now there's a unique grill if I ever saw one. You can call that build the Screamer.

    Here we go......gathered up my sculpting tools and rolled out a piece of Sculpey (stuff is expensive considering it's clay), but I like it.
    I'm going to try to show in this thread how I do it, it may not be the best or even politically correct but it works for me. I'll be doing some plastic welding, fabricating and setting this goofy build up as if I was going to cast some of it. Perhaps you'll see something you'd like to try.

    I have 4 of my own kids (adults) and a half dozen Grand-babies, they all would like to have one of my toys for whatever reason.
    I'm too darn old too build that many so I'm going to do one and make copies for them......besides, that way they have to push back from the video games, build & paint it themselves.

    I roughed out the basic form in clay, baked it and attached the form to the Fiat grille shell.
    Now I'll slap on some filler, add a cloak and smooth it all out.
