Default Awesome Kong II replica

Been working on an Awesome Kong II clod based truck. I have not seen to many people make a version of this truck and I loved it when I was a kid. Using a hard body blackfoot shell. The blackfoot has a lot shorter wheel base than a clod so I shortened the stock clod trailing arms to fit the blackfoot wheel base.

Body is not exactly like the real 1:1 as I intend to bash this thing.

I found a guy making a scale Allison engine and I placed an order for one so the bed will be cut out and modified to make it look like the real truck if Tamiya had made it.

I started one some time ago, That's the one thing that has been holding me back. Do you mind my asking, who is the guy that makes a scale Allison engine ?

Your buddies is good. I saw pics of it before I started mine and thought I could get a more realistic look with a hardbody. Today I modified the clodbuster roll bar and moved the ends out towards the bed sides as the real truck has it mounting on the bed sides. It will provide more room for the Allison as well. Also started on my hubs. So far I am happy with how it is turning out. I added some black covers to the headlights as well. Still a lot more to do.

Also you might notice the honeycomb pieces of styrene on the table. Those are for my neighbor that is building King Krunch. The wheels on that truck are crazy but I think we will have them looking spot on. We are going to run them side by side. Should be a good throw back to our youth.

Didn't like the shocks so painted them all black to make them disappear.

Thanks for the compliments. Working on a monster beetle figure for the truck. Modified his arm to make it look like he is resting it on the door.
