This very long-term project was begun in 1991. It gets worked on about every two years when the Greater Salt Lake Interntional Model Car Competition rolls around which means something will get done to it(again) in a few months.

Started with an old Tamiya 1/12 Ferrari boxer engine and am producing all but the basic engine block and heads. The block has had corrections performed for accuracy. Many of the fiddly bits have been produced but he is a long way from complete.

So this is got to be a real car, right? This is a modelling forum friend, you can not post real things here... Sorry but this is off topic. Make a model of it and lets talk about it then...

Well, joking aside, this precision is beyond my abilities, so I really am drooling. I hope to see the finished project, even it is a long-term one.

Keep it up, I love it.

That is absolutly breathtaking.
No wonder it is a long term project, with that amount of details and accuracy.
