Some really nice model cars, today. Here's my latest project. This will be a 1963 Watson Indy Roadster, all scratch built.

Thanks to all of you. It's 1/8 scale so pretty big; 22" long. The body is made out of fiberglass. The tires and frame are made out of styrene and the wheels are 1 1/2" conduit couplers witha styrene center section. I made a buck out of foam board and covered it with poster board then applied three layers of heavy (model airplane) glass with an addition of two more coats of resin.

This is the re-issued Monogram "Black Widow".



I resisted the temptation to "fix" things or "upgrade" this kit to more modern standards. As it comes there's no transmission or differential and the engine itself is sorta crude and lacks much detail. But I decided I'd rather keep it "pure" and build it the way it was back when it was first issued. Except that I did use an airbrush to paint it.
