Offenhauser Kurtis Midget

Post by Dirt Devil » Sun Jan 13, 2013 8:18 pm

This build is ment to replicate a ride of an Australian driver the late George Tatnell (Father of part time outlaws driver and multi time Aussie champ Brooke). its not exact because their should be a yellow decal on the side of the hood but the only referance photo I found was shot from the rear side and was only 1 inch squair so the detail wasn't there for me to ID the decal.

I wired the engine and made the decals, their not the greatest but their good enough for me.

I used the photo etched parts that came with the kit (Dash, centre of the steering wheel and hood straps)

Enjoy.
