'No Fare' - Ferrari-Powered Revell London Taxi
Posted by FrozenPlastik49 on Monday, March 19, 2018 10:03 PM

Time for a new build! I had so much fun building the Iditarod Rat Rod Bus I figured I'd stick with the rat rod theme. Had the London Taxi in the queue, did some research and determined the Revell Ferrari 599 GTO kit has the same basic dimensions as the taxi. I'm in the midst of slicing and dicing the engine bay and interior to get it all to fit while trying to retain the taxi aspect. Not sure yet what tires and rims will be tucked under the wheel wells. Paint will probably be flat black, though I'm unsure how much weathering to commit to...may consider Dremeling some rust holes...we'll see. The license plate will read 'No Fare.' Wish me luck!

It must be a Kingsmen taxi.

I like to work just as much as I don't.
