Recommended Posts

Well Fitting!

I cut down the Wells to fit the Dodger Body.

After a little cutting & fitting the first Well fits pretty good. Next I glued it in place with Zap-A-Gap.

Flat Wells!

The middles of the Wheel Wells curve in instead of being Flat. So I carved out the middle sections.

Then I traced the middles on to sheet plastic and cut the shapes out.

Here are both Wells glued in place. The new middle pieces are glued in and the Wells are now Nice & Flat.

I think you forgot to read the box lid man. It says 'Can be built 1 of 2 ways'. :rolleyes:

Ira, what did you do with the sides of the A100 you cut out? You've inspired me to build an A100 pulling truck and I could give them a good home if you still have them.

Thanks Brian!

Not sure yet... B)

I wouldnt rule it out.... but I'd like to see more of what the end goal is first before I vote yay or nay on the arms.
