H-3 Ute

4 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

For some people that haven't noticed that Model cars come in all shapes and styles.

I saw a Maisto H-3 Ute R/C car and thought out loud to myself, Why Not???

I was really hoping to use the Escalade but it is too wide but I think it can be done with the Monogram S-10.

Interior needs to be stretched and the frame the same.

I shortened the S-10 bed to fit

The glass is just Black but it is flat, so it would be easy

to make.

This probley won't get much farther this yr but it's an Idea for those that haven't thought

about or looking for something else to do ;);)

R/C vehicles usually have nice rubber tires, too, and I've found Maisto R/C stuff to be the best as far as parts donation is concerned. Some of the bodies are very accurate looking, too, which is a nice bonus. :D

I've borrowed tires from the dieCast but didn't think about the R/C part of them till now.

There, it is in Primer and looks more like a model now. :P

Mine weren't the R/C version, just the basic diecast kit. Bought them on clearance at K-Mart for twelve bucks!5-vi.jpg

The one on the right is totally OOB, paint and all. The one on the left was stripped and repainted in Testors Lime Ice, and I threw on some wheels from a Revell uptown Charger.

Good to see I'm not the only nutcase around here! :)
