I managed to build this in time for the NNL East. I literally pulled an all-nighter and finished a half an hour before I left to go.
I was contemplating building the large scale Poncho when Dave built his. I asked him, Jay, Clay, and TJ a MILLION questions, and I just wanted to thank them. I can officially say that this was the biggest pain in the ass build I have ever done. You were right, Dave. I had to scratch built and / or modify pretty much everything, including the fuel cell / entire trunk area, roll cage, engine, etc. a BIG thank you to patto @ www.pattosplace.com
Feel free to comment - good or bad.
List of stuff:
AMT 1/16 kit,
Tamiya blue & Tamiya yellow,
Patto's Place decals,
window net made from plaster netting (the stuff you use to fix plaster walls)
Detail Master line
scratch built fuel filler
hood hinges on front & back
Again, thanks guys!
