This is the smallest radiator I have ever seen... Scale: 1/24.

So, what does it belong to? Wink

I'll carry on a little more, anyway... Funny (?) story about the hood ornament (and me): I noticed earlier, that the hood ornament is loose from the chrome sprue, but it was all in an airtight clear bag, so I didn't worry about it. Then I took the chrome head cover off the sprue, and forgot to locate the hood ornament and bag it separately until I use it.

A couple of days ago I noticed some tiny sparkling thing in our hallway carpet. Quickly picked it up, as I was busy watching my son who was home ill (but quite active) at the moment, and I said to myself, it's either some chromed plastic part broken off one of his car toys, or I lost a model part. I didn't panic (as I normally would), just threw it in a sandwich bag and put it away where I keep my WIP model parts. A couple of hours again, I noticed another tiny object shine up at me from that damn carpet. Picked that up too, it was even smaller, and because my beloved 4-year-old was giving me a real hard time, I just tossed it into the trash, then went about our little business deciding who is in charge at home (it's him)...

In the evening, after we put him to sleep, I took out the bag with the first object I found, and through my magnifying glass I saw with horror that it was the (bigger part of the) hood ornament, a center emblem and half a 'moustache'. I instantly realized that what I tossed in the trash, was the other half 'moustache'... Anyway, I opened the 10 gallon can/bin, and working my way down, I excavated the piece, which is about 1/8 inch long. Strangely, I found it within a minute... then glued them back together.

Some progress on the 'guess what kit' WIP.

I finally found a way to reduce the strength of my clips...

Thanks for looking, Csaba

A couple more pics. Next up is installing seats, dash and wheels.

Mrmike's Bullitt Mustang WIP gave me the idea to drill the holes in the steering wheel spokes.
