Let us see the model on the computer. Is that how you design all you custom fabs?
For this modification, I first took a picture of the side of the truck:
I then used MS Office Picture Manager to crop out and save a picture of just the wheel opening:
That image of the wheel opening was then pasted on top of the original, full sized picture in MS PowerPoint, but moved forward to where I liked the "look". Here are the original pic and the modified pic on top of each other from PowerPoint.
Here I used the same method to see how it would look with a chopped top:
It's a lot easier to change your mind in the computer than it is AFTER
you've taken your favorite saw to an expensive or rare model kit...
No, I'm not going to chop the top...Ed Roth was a tall man and this is meant to be his hauler for the Raptor.
Many other people use software packages like PhotoShop to do the same type of work.
I hope this helps.
I think a 5th wheel would be a great choice
ya can really let your 'magination go nut's...not a short journey - I know!
It's a pretty short trip for me...fortunately my memory is so bad that each time I go there, it seems like a new place!
