might as well take downsizing to the xtreme!!!!!!!!

I went to a "gentleman's club" because the sign said they had all the hottest models. I thought it was a hobby shop. Man, was I ever disappointed.

Lanny, that is sooooooo kool!!!!!!!


How did you do it????


Basically tou just made the chassis shorter????

Was it an easy fit to the mini body???

Thats one of those projects you look at and say "why the heck didn't i think of that???"

I like the set up of NASCAR chassies they look quite good, here is a project of mine in 1/32 based on NASCAR but just to make a DB 5 look like a fast car!



The chassies and cage were built from soldered bress and sheet styrene, there are more pics here:
