Competition Rock Crawler kitbash... pics

Recommended Posts

So I got another project in the mix... I must have MBADD (model builder attention deficit disorder)

ANYHEW, been wanting to do this for along time, turning out to be pretty big, looks like I'll have to make a smaller 4cyl version later...

*UPDATE* So I have had this sitting for quite some time, thanks for reminding me about it. It will make it back to the bench this week...

Looking good man. I am glad to see another person building a offroad vehicle. Can't wait to see more.

Old post, I know.. but I'm curious what happened to this. Any more pics of build progress?

Gave me the idea to pull down the 1/25 AMT/ERTL "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" 'Monster Jam' monster truck.. A couple quick clips of the roll-cage and it's already taking a rock-crawler form.

Clint: Great, I'm watching with interest. Hope to see more pics soon. :blink: I completely credit you for giving me a reason to pull down that ridiculous TMNT monster truck and put some use to it! http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpl3k/2179741224/

I'm thinking about adapting the '99 Chevy Silverado engine, trans, etc to fit into it (if possible). Don't think I'll be using the monster gas tank for this; too dang big.
