Default Another G500 build

I know I've copied several before, but I wanted to make a smaller version of my Gelaendewagen. Fairly close match don't you think? Not finished yet, but well on it's way. Trying to find those 1.9 tires, and fairly set on not making them myself.

just use some tamiya bfg's, theyr a little smaller than the high lift tires and i think they'll match the 1:1 better for wheel/tire proportions. i got the same body, i think i have a pic of it sitting on bfg's, hold on.

Got the body from Amazon.com The paint I got from Express paint online. I was skeptical that the paint would work. It turned out better than I thought.

I think some tamiya hummer tires would look the best. There a little more rounder and less aggressive than the bfg's or the highlifts. And maybe these wheels http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXGL03&P=7 maybe you could space the center section in some so there not so deep dish.
