Great looking trucks guys, joester looks like you spend quite a bit modding your fg,

Willclarke liking the paint on your beetle body,

My painting skills don't allow for flames, I will probably go with a solid base colour like darkfires fg,

But with white viper stripes, still not sure what colour I should go with,

Thanks for all the pics so far.

Yeah the FG had some cash in it, but I sold it last year.
The 5T is now my project and its getting on the same level as the FG was.

My skills don't allow for much either.  That's where a talented ole lady comes in!

Joester, are yours painted on the inside?  Just curious.  I bash mine too hard to worry with painting another one all pretty.  It looked awesome for.... about that long.

That thing looks big,

wish other companys would make that style of body shell for 1/6 1/5 scale trucks,

not sure i would paint my truck yellow, but that looks good.
