My second all time favorite Tom Daniel model. This should be fun!

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

I built the Vanbulance version of this years ago.....

Still have the blower and exaust pipes in my junkpile..... somewhere.

It sort of looks like your going for an "A" Team look.

Dont worry about the thumb print.... paint it rust and call it battle damage.

Yes it's going to be a trike,I had the idea many moons back when I owned a trike.So it is going to be a campervan trike!

 

So the body has been cut down (front end for the spares box!)

 

The interior has been cut away for he new chassis.

 

Talking of which...

It will have a single central seat etc.

Starting on the front bulkhead,it will take time for the glue to cure before cutting down a tad.

I would just like to take a moment to thank mini man, for showing us what the correct size of a tad is. I always thought it was between a tip and a dollop. Come to find out it's just over a smidge! Big Smile

First of all this was my real world trike.

 

In order to make an omlette a few eggs must be broken,I filled in the gaps with resin.
