This one was finished 5 years ago.


Built my way. Paint is Gunze acrylic, lowered with wheels from an old Tamiya racing Golf, windows blacked out as the interior is very shallow in these.













When researcking these little jiggers, discovered that they had a twin cylinder 2 stroke engine of 360cc. So being a bike rider and a 2stroke nut I had to make grand prix style zingers for the exhaust.



Here it is in the back of the transporter motorcyle style (they're both 24th scale).


The truck is still in primer and tape  .

Pretty in pink!!!! LOL.

It looks good Steve. The wheels make a big difference.

I've considered making a front engined drag car from one of these but never been sure of the size of them. How long and how wide is the bonnet?

Nice like pink cream soda on a hot day. I have the Subaru 360 in 1/24 scale on my wishlist but it's always so expensive on ebay!

Cool. But no big block? Or even a turbo V6? :-) LOL.

Thanks guys.

Al, the bonnet measures 48mm side to side, 25mm front to rear in the middle and 35mm front to rear along the side edge. These cars make Minis look like limos.

Some scale ref pics







That's a 25th scale FE427.

I had thought of had thought of building it as a drag car, but to do it believably would entail making it wider. A hot rotary would go well in one of these.

Dennis, I have a 360 32nd scale in my stash.

Chris, a set back V6 might work.

Thanks for that Steve. Appreciated buddy.

Hmmmmm...... even a small block would probably be too big.. I wonder if a mid engined V8 mated to a transaxle would work?
