I have not built anything fun and creative like this in a long time!
So... to that end I bring you the,

CATMAN CAR!


The basis is a comicbook villan who fought Batman and was known as "The Catman"!

As far as I know, there were no cars featured in the comic books that were directly linked to "The Catman".

So.... time to choose a body and get the iron hot!

Okay, enough playing around.
Here is the center section and the body. 
Sharp eyes will identify it as Eldon Adam's "X-minus-1", a perfect '30's design that will work very well for this project.

After building the center section, I created the ISO rails next along with mounts for the front axle.

Feel like I am really getting my claws into this one.......

Meow.... (stay tuned.)

Is this a seal point? My mother had two of them. The older acted as a good "watch dog".

Yes a seal point 6 years old. He steals paper money and hides it.

Wedge head Siamese, as kittens they look like a dog or a alien

Unfortunately, I got busy with another project. 
As a graphic artist.... I get some weird projects. This time it's taking pictures of deep sea fishing lures.

Yeah.... glorious, living the dream.  [eyeroll]

But, here is the chassis so far.  Hoping to get back to the jig this afternoon.

You guys funny, I kill you last!  :laugh2: 

Chassis is done and going into the polisher now and I have to go to the sign shop.
Hopefully assembly is tomorrow and paint the next day. (if all goes as planned)

Pan limiter, only a 1/16" movement:

At the rear is a connector for the ISO rails.

Gene,

A Dogman car wouldn't be RUFF to build.
It would certainly GROWL down the straights!
It would be cool if someone emBARKed on such a project.
It's not a rePUGant idea at all.

Ha hahahahaaaa!
