Since I can never build a snap kit as a snap kit, here is my latest project. I started with a Revell snap-tite W900. Then I shortened the frame, added spring suspension to the rear, cut the skeeper down to a 36" coffin.

 

 

Then I put together a KFS Caterpillar 1693 engine and paired it with an Allison automatic transmission. This will be a tight fit in the snap kit chassis, but it should work with a little modification.

Good call on the rear suspension and the engine weathering is perfect!

Thanks! I used to sell the Dayton wheels, but my molds are worn out now. Someday I will make new molds, just don't know when.

Some plastruct diamond plate was used to scratch-build a battery box. I used pieces of a paperclip for the small handles on the cover.
