  2. Here's some pics of a Model-T chassis I've been working on for a few months. It was started from the AMT Double-T kit, with lots of brass, aluminum and styrene scratch built parts added. The front axle was modified for working steering with brass knuckles, tie rod and drag link. Steering column is an aluminum tube the the brass steering shaft inside, along with brass spark and throttle controls. The battery, muffler and running board bracing were also hand made as were many engine details. This will eventually be part of a Model-T tow truck.
