    **UPDATES ON PAGE 3**
    Pretty self explanatory. Just making this one for fun to keep me sane between commissions. Using a MARS Converter and reshelling it with a completely scratchbuilt Delorean body. I plan on a "Doc" style robotic head similar in style to Q in DOTM. Once done it will have all the trimmings as seen in that movie where it's used to go back somewhere ;)

    No way, that's awesome. The ironic thing is that I'm also planning on making a BTTF based Tf as a present for my friend's next birthday.
    Looking forward to the next update.:thumbs2:

    Weight has nothing to do with it!! :lol 

    Seriously Spoony, very cool idea, looking forward the the "Brownian" head & what you do with the rest of the car!

    One very important, world shattering, universe annihilating question tho...


    Will it be the flying version?? :D

    "Doc, you don't just walk into a store and-and buy plutonium. Did you rip that off?"

    "Shhhhhh. Of course. From a group of Carbombian nationalists."


    I could do this all day.

    Thanks man. You should post what you're working on.

    Thanks bud. I did all this today in about 4 hours.

    Hahaaa

    This version will not have had a hover conversion done at Goldie Wilsons III

    I had not planned on that but I think now I just might.....

    You are plenty worthy, Dave!

    I rember that. I'd love to get my hands on that size delorean model kit.

    Very clever.What else ya got?

    If you're gonna build one ya might as well do it with style!

    It will have the hook/ harness rod. But im not sure how to generate the power since plutonium is not yet available in every corner store.

    Thanks mate! It should prove to be pretty cool.

    WOW! You must be fairly young. At least you finally saw them.
