Default I'm finish! 1/4 scale all metal body 65 malibu ss

Hi all ,
I just completed my 1965 malibu ss pro street r/c car. This car weights in at a heavy 48 lbs and 2 oz. I have installed working head and tail lights. Here are pictures of just the body, give me some feedback what you think.

Thanks Warren528

That is unreal Warren.. in the 2nd pic you got really good into the detail because i can see the flair in the rear quarter panel. How did you do that!!!? Great talent and awsome job [sm=thumbs_up.gif][sm=thumbs_up.gif]

It is rare you see anythgn that is Scratch built that is really well done for a One-off , and I do have to say I am seriously impressed. I used to do Sculpture and toydesign and a lot of prototyping for the toy industry, so I know the crazy insane labor that goes into these things.

REALLY NICE WORK THERE MAN !

There is such a thing as scale when it comes to length. How do you think the car designers come up with scale dimensions for RC?

A 1:4 scale 1/4 mile would be 1/16 mile.
