i bought this truck to use for spares as i have a collection of 1970s vintage remote contol trucks i used some of the parts from this to get another one working.
i was going to throw away what was left of it but after looking at what was left i decided to give it a makeover as it was too good to throw away.
i started by extending the cab and adding an aerofoil to the roof then added a bull bar to the front of it all hand made from balsa wood.
i thought it might look better with lights on it as well so i got a set of coloured l.e.d christmas lights from a well known high street store and chopped out the amber blue red and clear bulbs i carved the roof light mounts from balsa wood and fixed them to the roof then drilled holes in the cab cab roof so i could fit the lights i did the same with the head lights and the spot lights in the bumper and the lower section off the bullbar i rewired the original on of switch on the truck so that the lights can be switched on and off.the mirror brackets are made from some large metal staples i found at work and the mirrors i made from balsa wood ive still got the exhausts to sort out then its time to paint it.
all coments welcome.
