I got plans in my head for a 1967 VW pickup (Hasegawa) with a Formula Vee racer on the back. Was inspired by this picture:
(It was posted in a thread at www.vw2you.com)
I have googeled and found many reference photos of formula Vee cars and I have started to draw up plans for on in 1:24 scale. I was planning on using parts from Revell Street Machine bug (the pink one) and som of Tamyia Karmann Ghia or 66 1300 T1. But the problem is the bodywork. the frame can easily be scratchbuilt but the body must be curvy and aerodynamic looking. Mots real Formula Vee cars have fiberglass body work. I was thinking of maybe trying to shape it out my self from plastic or maybe testing out my bodyworkskill on some thin metal plates. But the easy way out would be if I found a modelkit of a formula car that would have suitable dimensons so taht I could (with some alterations) use the body of that one.
Here is some pictures I found at www.thesamba.com
But does anyone know about a suitable race car in a proper scale that would work? It should be a 60s looking design. I have looked at Tamyia 1/20 Lotus 25 F1 car but I think that may be a bit on the large side.
I was thinking of starting on this project as soon as I have finished the Ford galaxie taxi project I got now so i guess this may come up sometime very shortly
