This is a merge of the 1/32 Pyro curbside Bentley Blower with a Roden WWI Hispano Suiza 12 liter 8 cylinder aircraft engine.  The engine was also produced as the Wolseley Viper in the UK during the war, so we'll call this a British hot rod.  Inspiration for this came from Jay Leno's aluminum bodied Hispano Suiza powered by the same engine - a very beautiful car.

Little modification was needed as the engine fit nicely under the hood area.  A few add on pieces were added to the bare bones Pyro model.

Thanks for looking. Enjoy.

I love this build Mike. It's well done and unique too.

All the details, exhausts, wiring, dash etc look terific and I'm so glad you fitted the Aero screens instead of the full width windscreen. They not only look better but fit better alongside the aerobics engine.

Lovely idea,  lovely rendition.

the premise actually kicks that "Spanish Swiss" effort into touch.

Top job!

Excellent conversion...in a smaller scale,
and silver is a nice change from British Racing Green,
or is it meant to be bare aluminium panels?

Beautiful !!!
Older cars have soul and charisma that modern Zamboni styling can't even come close to matching.
