1/18, 1/12 something like that. I have scratchbuilt a 1/12 Guzzi 500cc V8 engine in white metal and would like to recreate the stillborn Bill Lomas Cooper-Guzzi of 1958. Redoing it smaller should be do-able but 1/18 would be the smallest feasible (of what is a small engine 1:1). I actually built jigs and made up a frame of a MK X Cooper; this included the front leaf springs - which were too effective in that it would have required incredible strength in the uprights to hold them. I got bored making all the ancillary stuff hence the question.
