I really like your roll cage Bobby that looks awesome. Not like pieces of plastic glued toghter like mine do, it looks like a real roll cage to me!

Thanks Billy. Thats the very first cage I've built. This model is my first attempt at any scratchbuilding. I used plastic rod for the rear hoop and plastic tube with wire inserted for front hoop. Took me about 3-4 hrs to do.

I finished my Blazer and posted it in the workbench section. I also finished a Mercedes Benz 230 G but I don't know if that's a 4x4 or not! I think it is, as it has driveshafts going to both front and rear axles. That's also posted in the Workbench section!

Well,
It was killing me so I threw some paint on the body prematurely,then I managed to drop it and stepped no it and broke the windsheild pillar.
Nice one.
After a quick fix,I re squirted it.
This thing is very fragile body wise,especially since I cut so much of the body apart and made some of it.LOL!
Anyway-the front is on it's own wheels now.Need to build shocks so I can finish the front mounts and make the rear mounts,arms and cage work.
The radiator is mounted,spare mount done engine mounts,shifter tower and shifter,pedal,steering rack,......the front lower control arms have extra material where the shock will mount so don't flame me yet.

Hey guys,
The contest is officially closed,however I will accept your pictures until friday night.
I will need to class it all out and seperate the done builds into categories or what ever works.
I may need help from DB on that.
Then I will set up voting polls and give them 1-2 weeks to collect votes.
Also I will package prizes and post a folder of 1-2-3 etc..
After winners are figured I will post them and start contacting you to get your prizes out.
Thanks.
