Default 1:6 Dodge Build

Well since parts are starting to come in, and more will be on order within the next 2-3 days i figured i would start my build thread.

Heres a small teaser.



These tires will also be going under the knife. The beads are a little bit worse then i thought they would be so i bought a cheap set of lizards to steal the beads off of.

Lol omg I thought that micro dodge was 1.9 so when you had it in the bed of the big I was like wtf!! then I relized what scales we were dealing with.
Should be cool though.

I have been looking at that dodge body in the stores for a while now, trying to talk myself into buying it, so I will be watching this build closely.

BTW, great job on the micro!!

Can't wait to see an ex body of mine in a build thread. Noone ever does a build thread with my old parts.
