This is going to be built for my Kustom Kemps In Miniature model car club. It will be built as a somewhat futuristic, kustom electric powered rig. I'm also planning on going hub less wheels on it.

The photo in the background is just to get some ideas as far as shaping the new truck. Thanks to MKII for the parts on this.

Slight angle chop on the roof for starters...

Got the fenders on it today. I used a set of Peterbilt fenders, tightened up the arch so they hug the tires. I'm thinking of the lower portion of the Cannepa front bumper to tie the front end together.

JT, I'm still not sure on the rear treatment. I may take the slope out of the back end and lay it flat. Not sure yet...

Hopefully more pics tomorrow...

Ok, here's a bit more on it. Using the Super Boss back half, cut down the slope on it and leveled it off.Where you see the truck sitting will be the ride height of it when finished....

Aesthetically speaking, it's not my style, however the workmanship on it so far beats the snot out of anything I can do. Looks GREAT. Perhaps something you should see about casting in resin, might just be a market for it.

When you cut up those wheels can you save me the centers?? :P If you aren't using them that is..... :)
