I cant wait to see the paint on this. It is going to be gorgeous with a bright orange and those decals. I think its going to look killer!

I went ahead and cut the front end away from the body and then retaped it in place for painting. At this point the white base coat is in place and ready for masking and orange to be added next.

Aye....I see another winner about to bolt from the stable Wayne. :) B)
As the other guys pointed out, you did good hiding those humongous front wheel openings, great work.. ;)
And I do like the sound of this outdoors theme you have coming....Keep at it mate.

O.K., so this one is moving right along with the color. The orange has been applied. It is a neon orange lacquer from MCW so it dried very flat. No worries as the clear coat will take care of that. I just applied the color this morning and it is almost dry to the point where I may even start applying some graphices this evening.

Wayne,

This is beautiful! As always you do great work.

Have you decided on how you are going to do the chassis yet?

Wayne, This is a killer build, cant wait to see it when you get the graphics on. One question, where do you get your wheels and tires from?

Scratchbuilt tube chassis. I started the basic farmerails this morning. I will have more on the chassis to show by this weekend.

The tires and wheels you see here will not be on the finished product. These are simply what I pulled from the parts box for the purpose of mockup. The fronts you see here are from a RC diecast funny car. The rears are the tires from the same diecast with JPS wheels inserted. The wheels that will be used for this build will be Pro Track machined aluminum slot car wheels.
