      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    I found the body at an NNL show in Ohio one year in a parts bin. So I use the runing gear and decals from the Stinger kit. I am planning to redo this one with an updated chassis.

    VW Drag Van
    I took a Type 2 Delivery Van 1967 Hasegawa did a 4" scale chop. The VW emblem is molded to the body so I cut out an air vent between the letters. took an Allison engine for power and an old Vandel exhaust tips. I went with the Tamiya clear on the chrome and use the parachute rear drive train and cage from a shoe box racer. I did photo-etch wheels and sanded the tires. Shabo dry transfer on the tires.

    1/16th Buggy
    This is a buggy the I have been working on. It is an Entex car with some Revell some Monogram parts for the engine since the kit version are less than desireable.

    Tom Danels 1/16 Muscle Bug
    I took the Tom Danels bug kit and put a Revel funny car interior machine alumimun wheels with alumimum lug nuts. Also I put a formula one scoop to give it the old baja bug look to it. The engine is wired as well as the oil lines.
    Paint is 1973 champagne with 3 coats of clear. I omitted the exhaust tips and hollow out the ends to give it a flush look to the body.
