Default Re: I build things...only smaller....

It take as much skill to build in miniature as it does full size, probably more. Where did you get the good rubber tires. When I got into building model cars back in the late 60s early 70s we used to hoard the good rubber wide tires and we would take slicks and roll them over sections of heated window screen to produce a tread design, use the little bell shaped pieces at the ends of light pull cords for velocity stacks, ink pen springs for coil overs. It was a lot of fun finding things to workwith. We also used the old "Vaccu Form" toy to make copies of hot wheels car for our HO car track.
Your car looks great.
