      Chassis is almost there, having trouble finding details for the body so what I'm comming up with is best guess.

    Thanks Bryan. That looks like something I may be able to rig up.

    Same idea as mine, just yours seems a bit better ;) Mine should be welded soon, I hope!

    for the wheels, I used old beasrings, and I have something at the bottom so I can either have 2 flat bearings, to straighten metal, or I just add a spacer underneath one side, and it will make the bottom bearing at a slight angle (adjustable) which adds a rounded end (edge of bearing is rounded in this case)

    Bryan,
    I like your mini-english wheel. I think if you put a gusset on each side of the other three remaining corners, it should stiffen it up quite abit. I've been wanting to build a small one quite some time. I think you are on the right track. I love the project too.

    Update time, Christmas holiday have been good to me. (shed time)

    This is not going to be period specific its a custom rod, and because i want to hide things like steering servo's i have gone with a rack and pinion steering set up. This will (crossed fingers) allow me to hide the steering servo under the dash.

    Next major task is the motor mount, then i can get it running. (the rear axle will be replaced if i can find the right one or made)

    Any way here are some pics.
