Hey Timwylie, to scale it to the go cart size, all i have to do is grab the entire tumbler in the program, and shrink it down to whatever size i feel is necessary, then take my measuring tape and measure each panel individually. 

Conrad, The engine i think i will be using is a 13hp Honda OHV Engine, electric start.   We had one on our Streaker Go-cart, and that thing was mean, very mean.   They go for around $400 bucks, but its well worth it in my opinion.  Tires will be ATV and Lawnmower tires all around.  Frame will be Custom, as usually is to all Tumbler builds .

As far as what i was talking about in the "van scene"  it "looks" like the Scarecrow is sitting in the driver seat.  Im not 100% sure, but it might be him.  If im wrong, im sorry.   But considering he wasnt killed off in the first movie, there is still a good chance thats him. 

Just thought i'd share.   Thanks to everyone for their kind words, and will be sharing all this Tumbler information with you real soon.

Almost forgot!   Nitro was SUPER nice to me and sent me a gift!   I hope he doesnt get mad at me for thanking him publicly.   Now i have a digital Camera

so now i can update the rest of my build that much faster.   Here are a few shots of the paper model i have built so far,  Both sides are cut out equally, but i thought i would photograp one side for now.

Hey ATOLink, i just hope it loads up, my scaled side mechanics wouldnt load for some reason.  So I hope this one doesnt give me any problems.

I think I was a bit ambiguous. I didn't mean how are you going to scale it, but rather how you're planning on making it. Are you hand molding every piece or are you going to cnc some of it since you've got a 3d model of the pieces?

Oh lol, sorry, no i dont plan to use a CNC machine, each peice will be hand cut, and put together.    The 3D model was just made for refference to make sure what im building wont look too distorted when i finally come to the finished product .

I think i will use Hardboard, it comes in 4x8 sheets at Home Depot, for about $10 bucks a sheet.  It has a relatively smooth surface, so i figured i could cut each peice out from it, then hot glue them together, and seal the seams with something.   Then cast a mold, and create a fiberglass part from that mold.

Ok so i tried posting the 3D Tumbler today, as well as attempting the scaled side mechanics once again, but had no luck on either.   It turns out the file is way to large to be loaded on the website. (34.8 mgs)  So i'm trying to figure out other ways to do this.  

Sorry for the delay.
