I made this Model A sedan from sheet plastic.

I was going to use the Peterbuilt diesel turbo engine, but it was way too big, so I decided to make a scaled
down engine from scratch using sheet plastic and left over engine parts.

The engine on the left is the Peterbuilt engine so you can see the scale.

I built the turbo and tubing from beads, plastic straws, molded clay and plastic tubes.

The tires are sculpted out of clay.

The fanbelt is made from thinly sliced sheet plastic.

The front springs are real metal springs I got from the craft store.

I made the bomber seats from sheet plastic.
