"Junk yard dog" I had a Porsche Carrera 906 body by TrueScale , some wheels, motor bracket, etc, etc.... and lots of pieces of brass in

my "pile" of spare and some used brass, so I thought I'd see if I can make something from it. It's been in the works for a few months now.

Here is the end result. Just need to find a suitable interior to finish it.

Nice one Miko.

I actually like seeing all that brass from the top. Show it off IMO.

Could you have a centered driver to hide the wires and leave most everything else open plan. Love that top view. :heart:

 

What do you use to create the graphics?

Thanks Martin! I have a Graphtec plotter and I grab some free graphics off the internet... clean it up a bit and Voilà!

That sound like something I may try! Thanks for the idea.
