Luigi knows what tires you want

Post by frizzen » Fri Mar 05, 2010 3:11 am

Going by the great response I got from another movie theme car I did a while back *cough* viewtopic.php?f=23&t=9414 *cough* , it's time to do it again!

Wow Frizz, I really like this one because I have a soft spot for old Fiat 500s', particularly the Abarth club racers.

Kudos :-o

Did you need to do a chassis stretch on this one? I'll assume you did...

Now you just need the little skid loader (Guido) that he had changing the tires. :-o

Thanks guys!

I used a "Panther" bullet-clone chassis, stretched wheelbase 0.200" (5 pieces of 0.040" styrene), with a shaved front tab. Rear body mounts with a rectangular hole in the body, up front it has an custom styrene mount so I didn't have to hack a tab-slot into the Mouth area.

Sidewinder, well I was wondering about making something on a like Q-steer chassis for Guido the forklift...

My friend, he just got back and wants to say hi. It would mean a lot to him!
