This was a project but seeing Gunn and a few others do it, I decided to give it a try. It was time consuming but as with anything that turns out decent, it is worth the time and hassle to do it right.

Great work!

Ain't as easy as one may think...Just following the lines can become quite frustrating.
Practice on different castings/brands then go for the real deal.

Seeing that top picture reminded me, I'm not done with it! :lol: its been sitting on the desktop here for awhile and I've basicly have the Trunk lid done so it will open but I remember now I was looking for a rumble seat insert type so when the Trunk lid is flipped the seat would show. The hood line next to the windshield is cut already but I still have to cut the sides and insert a motor. I guess I needed to take a break- Man, I must be getting old, hahaha - I go to show something off and I plum forget to finish it. Enjoy the Opened doors :)

Hello,

I've heard the Tucker was a boat--looks like you're trying to prove that theory! Opening doors--WOW! :eek: That mut have takin' some time and patience. I bow to you, sir...
I would love a thread on a "How To" relating to that feature.
Maybe you can use to engine from the Bat-Copter, since the 1/1 was originally powered by a helicopter motor--in the boot!
Superb work! :thumbsup:

Cheers..

Some of the early prototypes did run on 6 and 8 cylinder motors the last cars had the helicoptermoters that were donated by Howard Hughs.
