yeah the skulls were a bit hit and miss, they are "jackal" internal stickers, the ones that soak off with water, wouldve
prefered the XXXmain type that are actually sticky.
the kids, well, they happen to be mine lol, up until today, they like being chased around the yard by the mini-t,
but for some reason they didnt wanna play chasy when i fired this up lol

To give the painjob some depth. Re mask out the windows and spray the inside with a few coats of either white or silver. It'll make the bodyshell look more substantial and stop it looking see through...... Unless that's the look you were aiming for

Congratz Australis !! Like the color and the skulls match for some reason the headlights color very well, abit like dungeon master feeling (from the old amiga gaming days) Anyways, it look real good and the blue color is abit unusual but shines nice and not as dark as most have.... including myself

Good luck with your truck !

I see that you already know how to brake things, good for you [sm=biggrin.gif] keep up the good work mate [sm=thumbup.gif]

the blue is a combination of irredescent blue and silver, alternating coats. but u may notice that i went a bit heavy in some parts.
cyberfyn, i might give your suggestion a go, but am outa paint at the moment, ive also just put on the roll bar, makes it look nicer.
ive just spent the last two hours out in the shed trying to work in a fix for this gear, i cant believe it happened so soon.

australis, i know you have the pipe coming for the monster truck. i have the marder II pipe from the same manufacturer. anyway my rear wing took a hard enough hit to break it the other day and in the process bent the pipes mounting tab the same one that i had to elongate the hole.
hopefully you won't have any issue with the monster truck version. as the marder II was engaging the choke other wise i would not have known it had taken such a hard hit.
