these are the plans I used for the dimensions

Kane, yes there Auslowes rims and tyres
Cruiseliner, nothing fancy mate, just a hobby knife and a Dremel tool and files.

Very interesting brother Dave, I'm sure the finished product will be a show stopper for sure!
Must be time Dad and Uncle Kevin stepped up a notch and showed us young fellows what nearly a century of modelling experience can produce........ Shocked
Finished for April?????

Yea' well, Rob yu-know' I build a "MASTERPIECE" just about every night.
It's usually started anywhere between 11pm and 1am ---------- and without fail its always done and dusted by the time the sun comes up in the morning.

The really frustrating part is that I can never find it once it's finished.
Strangely enough, there never seems to be any mess ----- or left over bits and pieces----- Guess I must be ------ "SUPER TIDY"
Can't even find the empty box affraid ????????? !!!!!!!!!!!!
I reckon I'd have a "MOUNTAIN" of built ups around here someplace, it's just a matter of finding the damn things.
The funny part is, I've given them all a name, --------- starting with ------------ "SWEET DREAMS" Basketball Basketball

rolf

You've got a mountain of unbuilts Uncle Kev...............just like everyone else in this family. Shocked

Scummy's got a huge stash, which I might add we need to start "marking", sorry Uncle Kev but greens my favourite colour so you'll need to pick another coloured sticker to "stake your claim". Shocked
I'll generously make some room for everyone involved by moving the Torana to a secure location known as my shed.
We better allocate brother Dave a colour too..........

HEY YOU CLOWNS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Whats goin on here , my sickness is in my head ! swear I'm not goin anywhere YET so you can all sit down !!!!!!!
Now that we have all calmed down i hope you got mega little stickers cause there's stuff i duno i even got , or so mummy says . It's amazing how we just buy and buy and not realise we got too much , and will NEVER get through it all . I'm getting older and the stash is getting bigger with no end in site scratch , but we just keep buying and stashing . Dave dont rush this job mate art is made over time .
Oh , if anybody turns up at my place with little stickers in hand i'm gona smack them on the forehead with some kind of stick !
