For some people that haven't noticed that Model cars come in all shapes and styles.
I saw a Maisto H-3 Ute R/C car and thought out loud to myself, Why Not???
I was really hoping to use the Escalade but it is too wide but I think it can be done with the Monogram S-10.
Interior needs to be stretched and the frame the same.
I shortened the S-10 bed to fit
The glass is just Black but it is flat, so it would be easy
to make.

about or looking for something else to do ;) ;)

R/C vehicles usually have nice rubber tires, too, and I've found Maisto R/C stuff to be the best as far as parts donation is concerned. Some of the bodies are very accurate looking, too, which is a nice bonus. :D

I've borrowed tires from the dieCast but didn't think about the R/C part of them till now.

There, it is in Primer and looks more like a model now. :P

Mine weren't the R/C version, just the basic diecast kit. Bought them on clearance at K-Mart for twelve bucks!Posted Image
The one on the right is totally OOB, paint and all. The one on the left was stripped and repainted in Testors Lime Ice, and I threw on some wheels from a Revell uptown Charger.
Good to see I'm not the only nutcase around here! :)
