Nice work with your extra seat. Tell the passenger not to lean his elbow on the exhaust :shock:

Excellent further work on this, KP. Interestingly, I've just realised that this huge Fiat appears to be right hand drive and whilst we British and indeed other nations such as Australia, NZ and Japan know that is the correct side of the car for the driver, I'm a little surprised that a European racing car of this vintage isn't a left hooker. Was the car specifically designed for a world record attempt over here?

I wonder if it was Ernest Eldridge who bought it with an 18 litre engine in it then had the chassis lengthened to take the 21 litre engine, being English maybe he had it converted, just my best guess?

A great looking build with some fine detail, you can almost feel the heat coming off the engine

Hi all well it's finally finished (I seem to have very little time to model or even check out the forums lately, life is so hectic)
Anyway for those that didn't follow the build this is not the red version in the museum it's the Ernest Eldridge world record run version, the tail had to be raised and the skirt lowered also an extra seat for the co-driver had to be added all else is out of the box, I've seen some amazing builds of this kit where an amazing amount of detail has been added, I'm no where near as patient as that or talented so here is my version of this amazing kit. It truly is an amazing kit, I have plans for another one but it will be totally radical and nothing like the actual car, anyway that's in the future. Here are the pics.

I think I'm going to concentrait on finishing some of the models I've started to clear the bench for October's ducati(the missus surprised me further saying I could also get the upgrade kits taking the cost of it to nearly 700 quid)

Now that is one great looking model car, KP, bloody marvellous!

As for Mrs KP, what a babe - tell her from me she's a great lass for giving you the green light for your Duke build!

A superb build with ideas to steal, the ideal thread.
