I have that DVD as well.  Very fun to watch.  Will make a great subject for a scale build.  Can't wait to see it.

OOOHHHHHHHH, I like...  Never seen this one before, but it's a nice build and will be a great project.  Post a lot of your build please.

Wow!  I will be following this one.  It's great that you are going to do it as close as  possible to the real one. Those radius rods will be a real challenge.  I imagine you will have to scratchbuild them. That will be fun to follow.

 I had never seen this P/U before either.  Putting the front and rear axles so far apart is really cool. 

I am old and feeble, with poor eyesight. Is that a Ford FE engine? Confused

I Googled Ian Roussel, and saw  this little shortened car.

I have been collecting 1/25th scale kits and parts, to build hot rods and vintage dragsters.  I am not sure if I have the body of this one, but I am definitely going to build something like this car.

And as MikeMc said, please post pics as soon as you can.  I think seeing the earliest stages of building would be a lot of fun.  I would like to see some of the fitting and mockups, etc.

Thanks.

Mike

Well i got rushed and didnt build the radius rods the same, and i was low on funds to get styrene, maybe in a week or so i will pick some up and redo this.







the only major difference, my headers come out farther, and the radius rods. i left teh picture at work so built most of this without a reference pic, thats why the engine is ford blue instead of red. haha enjoy

VERY COOL build Vegas13 ! That is one of my favorite DVDs, Ian Roussel is a true artist and visionary ! You did a great job building his pick/up in scale-and I can see why he would like to have a repllica of his 1:1 build. I've been collecting parts to build " Billys Chop Shop " coupe, and only hope it comes out as nice as yours.VIVA LAS VEGAS !
