I have a lot of things going on in this next model. First, I created my own straight 8 engine
using sheet plastic to build the block and intake manifold. The carb intake is a soda straw.
I used bent plastic sprues for the exhaust headers, which empty into a plastic soda straw.
The frame is hand built from plastic rods. I aged the 32 Ford body by hitting it
with a hammer to make the plastic come apart at the seems. I chopped the roof and left it rough
looking and added silver weld spots to make it look unfinished. To age the paint, I wiped flat
black over it with a paper towel.
