COOL! I'm IN!
but I have a question for you. I have recently acquired a number of Puller kits, Two orange Blossom Specials, a tennessee Thunder Funny car, and here just recently, a Meister brau Tractor. I also acquired the parts I need t start a mud-racer project I've been wanting to do.
Plus I've already got quite a few Monster kits, USA-1, Bigfoot #1, Bigfoot #10, (still need the other two kits, Bigfoot #6 and Bigfoot #8) And a Thunderbolt One Blazer Monster kit.
I also have an MPC monster Dragster, but it's a goofy-lookin' thing that I am going to put a set of paddle-tires on and turn into a sand rail.
Anyhow, because of all this, and the seemingly renewed interest in these subjects, I was thinking about starting a Monster/puller/mud racer/ tough truck/USHRA CBP.
basically just like the Monster CBP, but encompassing ALL the subjects you would have seen at any given USHRA/Monsater Jam type event, or any Monster truck show. I was thinking about basically making an on-line Monster-truck/tractor-puller rally. See what I'm saying?
Anyway, I am Definitely IN for the Monster CBP, but I have decided to hold off on my CBP as I don't want to step on your toes.
Unless you want to adopt my idea. My guess is that this could turn into the largest CBP on earth if you did. Imagine it: Do you remember the BIG off-road truck shows in the 80's and 90's? The ones you;d see on T.V. all the time? There'd be a regular truck show for the lifted, jacked-up 4x4's, then there would be all the events. The tractor pulls, the 2wd and 4wd truck pulls, The mud-racers in all different classes from Stockers all the way up The Open-Unlimited paddle-tire class, Which are basically just a 4WD Fuel altered that runs on mud, to the tough trucks and all the other stuff at one of those shows.
It would be really cool to see someone build a "truckasaurus"!!! or something like that...
There are just PILES and PILES of kits available out there (few are still in Production, but all are still readily available for under $50.00) for something like this.
if you want, i could make up a list of stuff.
Sorry dude, I'm not trying to hijack your CBP, I just had an idea at the same time you did, and they kind of COnflict, so I'll hold off on mine unless you want to meld the two together.
Either way, I'm IN!
Class one Entry:
Bigfoot #1, Completely corrected, with tilt front end, Correct wheelbase, corrected wheel opeings and stretched Flares.
Class Two Entry:
Bigfoot #10. I had already started this one, I painted the body and decaled it, then set it on my shelf. I never did anything else to it. Is this OK?
AMT Thunderbolt one Blazer monster Truck, will probably have custom decals and paint, and a different name. As-yet un-named project.
Can't wait to see everyone Else's entries.
Remember When real cars were made of metal and models were made of plastic? Now real cars are plastic and models are metal!
