    Thanks guys,

    Thanks guys for the nice comments.
    Kataranga, I love the challenge of scratch building my owe chassis, the monster truck chassis would've probably worker though.
    DR. Those wheels are from Jim at micronitro.....All I can say...there simply awesome! I will be adding brass lug nuts & valve stem detail

    The chassis is made up from brass & aluminum tubing, with sprinkled in plastic for good measure!
    I'm not a big WIP kinda guy, so this is my first ( I usually just build, build, build with no pics), but I'm trying to slow down & take a few pics. Hope you like,

    Here's a little progress
    scratch dash:


    Front end, with mounted pumpkin, & aluminum u-joints, & a peek at the aluminum coil overs:


    And another quick mock up:


    Thanks,
    JB
