Hey ya'll, I know its R/C, but I wanted to share it with you! My intent is to build one of Western Distributings beauties! As u see from the real photo. These are awesome! It'll have a 3 speed trans, with an auxiliary! (its just a ratio reducer), lights sounds....... Whatcha think!? Made a purple ocean to remove the paint! Will get more pics with progress!!

I don't care if it's rc. It's still a model and I like where it's going. Can't wait to see more. Cheers

What paint did you use on that chassis? I talked with Dino at Western Distributing and got the paint code they use. I had some paint mixed up but I haven't sprayed any yet. Yours looks really good!

I asked as well! They said it was actually called Western Blue!!! The stuff I got is from O'reilleys "Bahama Blue Metallic" I'm goin slow with it. Built it in 2000, tore it down n built it a couple times since. Ex wife tossed it in the yard, cracked the cab, n twisted the frame! Lol Now, a complete rebuild with the lon frame rails.
