Big Wurmb said:
my honest opinion is that looks like a 6 yr old put that together. ill put up some if my models later tonight ohhh that poor poor 78-79 i wish i could find a sealed model kit of one :cry :cry :cry it would one of the best...but not as awesome a southern comforts
will here it is :thumbup


In the Beginning there was Bigfoot!

and then 47.00$ later there was Wild Hoss, this kit didn't have any suspention. :-/

The dissasembly of Bigfoot.

The Rough Idea.


The shortening of the wheel base and chassis mounting.


came down with the chassis and finished the rear wheel shortening.


Thinking of how to install a roll cage...

and im really thnking of this idea.

I like this too...

but having on the outside like that didn't work ..so put it on the inside!

And then disaster strikes( cat rolled it off my desk :mad:)

ENGINE! i used the monster truck motor( if anybody can find me a pic of a real engine ill try and do MORE detail)




had to do a fender chop! for fender exiting headers!


the body is a little weird o_O

and so I taped it up, and heated it up.

lil bit-o-flex

and its coming alnog NICLY. This is where I am as of now





and this is where I am now.
I hope I didn;t bore ya too much! :cool:
I bet ya Just can't wait for the colors its gunna be!

I need to buy the shit out of some bronco models off ebay.

I guess for now I can take a grave digger chassis and drivetrain and put a '57 Chevy stepside down onto it for now :brownbag

UPGRADES!!!

Well I finially found free time to move my auqriums to give me more space for my work area. Replaced my bed frame and post with drawers. I also managed to dig up some free time to look threw my model graveyard that I won off ebay!ok so you wann know what the upgrades are? well here you go:
my busy work area.

Replacing w/e tranny that is and slapin the C6 performance tranny to the engine.

Sprayed down the rollcage(metallic blue).

well that 87-91 bigfoot was a 1:24 scale and im combining it with my 79 bko 1:25 scale. and this beefy bumper fits Just Right!

Leaf springs allow me to properly aline the axles in the proper postion.

came with a crap load of shock absorbers( honsetly I dont feel like paintin them).

Chrome Rims :fro:

and replaceing with 2 ton military axles!

awesome dude :rockon :thumbup

what's boggling my mind is, where are you getting all those 'real' parts from, and what the hell are you using to hold it together, it can't be model glue, because you keep taking it apart.....what gives?!
