DUKW with a Big Block Chevy! What could go wrong?
Sometimes I just have to goof off. This is a 1/35 scale Italeri kit that I modified a bit by
a little engine modification, larger tires and a active rear suspension,(last photo) I really had to modify the real wheel wells to fit the tires. In drag racing this is called tubbing.
I set up several photos, a couple outdoors and the "Wheelie" That was a fun one. On display the only noticeable modification is the wheel size. It sure is fun to lift the hood at club meets. Some of the post war DUKWs were outfitted with Chevrolet V8s.
Enjoy the madness,
