HO Vintage Boat Tail
#1

My favorite car of all time. She's no deuce coupe, but if she had set of wings, man, I know she could fly!

3D printed custom spoked large diameter wheels - uses rubber O-rings until I can get around to try casting my own tires for her. Started initial prints through Shapeways, but switched over to resin prints for a much better finish. Printed in 18 parts, it's like assembling a 1/64th scale plastic model. 

Unibody system. The frame and fenders serves as the chassis. Powered by choice of an N20 or N30 motor.

Thanks! It took a stupid amount of work to do the model and engineering. But that's why they call it a hobby! Here's some closeups of the model work in Blender.
