Because technically what I'm making isn't a model..
As Im living with my parents and were already working on a car atm, ive had to postpone my own rod.. even collecting parts so im keeping myself motivated with this.
I dug out m K'nex the other week and was sitting around wondering what I could do with it as my knowledge with cars and mechanics has grown quite a bit since childhood!
My first thoughts were a miniature 32 ford! But looking through photos on the HAMB I saw some sling shot dragsters.. IDEA! So a sling shot it is.. Flathead v8(with moving bits!)
Only one gear. Throttle and Clutch will be added.. Everything will be driven by a Drill motor because the switch can be used as a throttle and you can have several speeds so that will be usefull!
Seeing how to go about making it look like a flatty
Will be posting more updates in a few hours or so.. Forgot to check everything could move freely when I ran it on the drill motor and a piston desided to rip itself apart..
I know this isnt a car, or a real engine.. but it helps me learn and keeps my mind working!
