      Here's one I did a while ago...basically out of the box with minimal added detail....braided oil lines made from necklace string found at Hobby Lobby and painted Testor's silver with fittings of hexagonal styrene Big Deuce quickie rod, scratchbuilt "banjo" steering wheel of paper clip wire and a 1/25 "dog dish" hubcap used as the horn button, spreader bars from lengths of an old portable TV retractable antenna...valve stems of wire insulation with straight pins as caps...well, you get the picture. Good old "low tech" detailing!

    Way to go Harry....I have a lot of respect for clean well detailed low tech builds. If I was a judge at a car show it would get my vote before I even considered a big bucks bolt together. Real modeling is alive and well at ScaleMotorcars. Metal-flake?

    That's fantastic work, Harry. Those are the type of fenders I'm going to use on my own deuce. I also like where you put the v8. Great job on the banjo steering wheel. You can enter that one in the Celebration.
