building a 1 to1 promod
Posted by vintagegarage on Sunday, May 17, 2020 11:33 AM

I have never went to this extreme on building a model but here we go. I had to start out with my own chassis because the prostock and mod ones were to short.

Off to a great start! Would put a "Birdcage Maserati" to shame! 
Let's see all the progress.
