    Thanks for the comments, chassis detailing is my favorite part of building!

    Revell integra, long time coming. Clean look.
    I started this one a few years ago, and was boxed a few times due to paint mishasps. This is actually the 2nd body as the first one i could not strip the duplicolor automotive paint. This body was painted twice, first go aound the paint was old and just didnt go on good, sanded, and shot again. The paint job on it actually went "spiderweb" and I again thought it was ruined, but I wetsanded it to what you see. No clear, just out of the can Duplicolor.
    I went with the kits Type R wheels, with the outside turned down to fit Xs tuning tires. Engine detailed, and exhaust is all aluminum, i even machined the muffler.

    Nice clean build. Seems like every other civic of that generation was that color.

    Double drop deck article, 1/32 tires
    I know out in internet land an article from the mid 90's from scaleauto is kicking around about making a double drop lowbed from the AMT flatbed. Anyone know where I could find it? I remember it said to use the rims and tires from the revell dually Ford kit. Anyway I picked up these 1/32 scale Fujimi 22.5 tires off of evil bay cheap, and I think will look much better. Here is a picture of them beside the revell. They scale out better too, close to 18".

    1/32 wheels & tires on 1/25
    Has anyone used Aoshima or Fujimi 1/32 rims/tires on a 1/25 truck? The 22.5 would scale close enough to 19.5 to be convincing as a light truck or lowbed wheel and tire combo. I have seen then on eBay. I have both brands wheel and tires for cars, looking for options for trucks, which is better etc.
