Default 1/4 scale all metal body headed for painting.

There are a few photos of my 1/4 scale all body headed for painting. The weight of this so far is 14 lbs 8 oz. before painting.

Looks great! I have always wanted a metal body. It really brings things that much closer to scale. Post when it gets sprayed!!

That is some skill you have there... are you doing any detail like plexiglass windows or headlight and tail lights??? how cool would it be if the hood and trunk were functional. I know you thought about that
