Been pestering Andy for years to offer a Gulf rear clip with a MK3 front clip. I know the front clip is longer but it could be done. Perhaps just the MK3 headlight “buckets” grafted to a standard MK1 front clip.
Probably an old twin like a Travel Air, Apache or C310?
I’d keep it since it’s “rebuildable”
Two are available via the link.
So Neil, I spy lots of aircraft specific (genuine) hardware / parts on your build, are you in aviation?
BTW, love the tri...
That “plug” you modified looks to be a aircraft APU oil sump drain plug/chip collector. Except the ones I’ve dealt with are aluminum alloy.
