WOW I like that!! The Viper chassis looks like it belongs there. I see yellow plastic on part of the frame, were two frames needed?

Nice work.

If I am not mistaken, the Viper chassis is 2 separate pieces actually.

Very nice looking build so far. Love the concept!!!

Thanks Mike ! The Chassis is in two parts ,the yellow top part is just from a kit molded in yellow . I used two chassis to lengthen it about a half inch to fit the Duster wheel base . I cut something wrong and had to use the yellow pieces .

Awsume project Pat. Real nice work so far...

Thanks Carl !

Looking Great.

Great looking Roll Cage.

Will the dash be able to be removerd for detailing or is it now part of the Roll Cage?

Thanks Rodney ! It is part of the cage ,but I can get to everything and the dash pad is a separate piece.

Loving it!

Great inspiration for a future build (I hope someday I'll have the guts to build "Sniper").

Awesome how you did the chassis.

You got another follower :-)
