The arms and head idea is really great, that will solve the ugly clip problem perfectly, thank you ccobra.
I like the colour too, reminds me of the old Kawasaki race teams with white wheels, nice combination. Unfortunately I damaged the surface quite a lot so will probably respray with some paint that I already have in my boxes.
I'm wondering if I might make a little retro VW aircooled motor with big tall intake tubes like the old CAE sprint cars, this project is a proper mismatch anyway.
Thank you for all of the encouragement from everyone.

I thought I would represent an air cooled engine for this bitsa.... looks a bit big though, more like a lycoming!

Thank you Rick,

Thank you all very much.

I think the word "unique" doesn't do it justice. Quite a build. :o

This will make you feel at home- how about a VW Beetle Tub Lycoming/Corvair Hillclimber? (HRW history)

Ahh! That is very cool, think I feel a little less oddball now, really nice engine detail too :) :)
