      I started this model a long time ago, but got sidetracked when the Big Deuce and Big T were reissued. I built my highboy deuce and [B][I]two[/I][/B] Big T hot 1/8 Jag finally coming out of mothballs! rods...then the Pocher bug bit and I just [B][I]had[/I][/B] to build my Alfa.

      Well, the Alfa is 99% finished, so I dug the old Jag out of storage. It's the 1976 release of the model, molded in bright yellow (the original issue was molded in red). It wil now become my "active" project...(at least until something else comes along and sidetracks me again!)

      I'm doing a replica of a very early car...one of the first several hundred built, with the external bonnet latches and the road draft tube (which was removed early in the production run). I have several loose wires and hoses to connect yet, as you can see, but the engine is just about finished.

    I've removed the rear side window frames because I'm going to make them operable (flip-out).

    I also cut out the rear hatch door and the gas filler door, because I'm going to hinge them.

    Harry, you've been holding out on us. That Jag is not only top drawer, it's magnificent. The engine work alone is unbelievable. I gotta keep my eye on this one.

    ok, I'm confused. If you're not offering them...why did you offer them???

    Are they metal? Individual spokes? Did you just build these for the heck of it, or were they for sale? What's the story here?

  12. There hand machined in Aluminium and individualy hand spoked. I made 1 set for a guy he in turn told someone else about them so I made another set for another guy !
    In the end I turned out 18 sets of these things for different people! At the time I was offering them for $600 a set .
    I saw this post which reminded me of the wheel sets so I thought I'd show them off again sorry to miss lead you harry .

    I wouldn't think he'd get rich making them.$600.00 per set isn't much when you consider the ,materials,tooling and time to assemble each of the 4 wheels. I sure wouldn't work for $600-$1200 per week making them considering that they even have knockoffs and knockoff hubs.
