Can You Tell What It Is Yet?

Enough with the Rolf Harris impersonations, here's todays latest work in progress. Yes, the chassis is from a blacked out Scalextric Valvoline Thunderbird and yes the rear axle is cut down and refitted with Scalextric Focus WRC rears but what I'm asking is what is the car?

I have every confidence that some of you out there will recognise the 1:1 prototype even from this shot.

Come on then who will first to guess it? First prize is an envelope full of fibreglass dust swept off my back door step!

Cunningham 'Le Monstre'?

I knew it would be guessed! Unfortunately Howmet once I realised that I would be sending an envelope of white powder through the post I did the only responsible thing that one could do - I wiped my prints off it and addressed it to the Prime Minister.

I don't know the origin of this fibreglass casting, I got in a bits box swop at the club night on Tuesday. Doesn't photo too well I'm afraid since it's the horrible kind of glossy, semi-translucent brown usually associated with constipation curing chocolate.

Now if someone would do a 1:32 1950 Caddy de Ville then I could model both Briggs Cunningham entries at the 1950 Le Mans.

Buh-buh-buh-buh but....

That's MY envelope of white powder, Coop! I won it fair and square!
Ain't it typical- the folk what's got get more, the folk what ain't got, get nuthin'.

Very nice casting that, by the way. I couldn't help recognise it- the whole East Hamley team runs 'em. Paint it Panzer Grey and scare the troops. Maybe a little gun turret over the cockpit there, too.
Meanwhile, on another page, Rail Racer's C4R turns it's wheels...
Let's get the whole Cunningham team going!

Howmet is currently..

Playing: by himself
Reading: the instructions
Scratchbuilding: a fleet of xrarglon star invader battlecruisers in 1:1 scale
Listening: out for police sirens
Driving: fast in the other direction
I thought you were building a Thingie!
Hurry the Thingies thread is dieing, we need to keep it alive and make a record of posts and views!
Best regards
Sorry to hijack this post for a moment Coopdevil!
