    latest project sunmbeam tiger

    I do love a British car model .decided to build a Sunbeam Tiger with a few mods .the arches were an option in the kit but I`ve molded in a MustangII front spoiler and a 58 Corvette panel where the roof went .there is also a NASCAR engine but with a modified inlet to take 4 Weber`s. here`s how it looks so far

    You talented people....I tell ya.
    This one really 'speaks' to me; way bitd, my buddy Brian L built a very similar one in 1:1 scale. Brian took his Tiger, put flares almost exactly like these on it, made a 'to scale' Cobra side vent in the fenders and then hammered the grille opening into a Cobra shape. The car was originally BRG, but his plans were to paint it red. The bodywork was nearly done when he and Kristina moved to SoCal. The car was still unpainted and unfinished last time I saw it when I was out there, and we kinda lost track of each other, but this is pretty close to what it should have looked like. Thanx for sharing.
