I was thinking the same thing when I first looked at the exhaust, I had to look to the top to see who's build thread this was

Simply amazing work :bow::thumbsup:

I built models when I was young, I wish I still had a few them now. The one thing I noticed, but then again you may not be finished yet, is to sand the outside surface of the tires so they have a scuffed look where they contact the surface, I learned it in a model book I looked at from the library when I was about 10 - 12 years old

like on this tire, before putting it together drag it across some sand paper to scuff the tread of the tire, makes them look neat

I hope to see more of your work :thumbsup:

Heck I'd like to make myself a scale version of how I want both my Bug's to look some day

Hey thanks for the great words-really appreciate it! I totally agree with the tire comment. Since this is a full function RC, I will bet the first time I run this thing on asphalt those tires will look pretty worn!

WOW

Guess I should have read it a bit more carefully cause I missed the part about it being R/C :blink:, even better :thumbsup:
At first glance it looks as if you can get in and drive it away

A friend of mine got my son in to R/C cars, it was around the time I had just built my Rail Buggy (on the cheap) anyhow my friend had more $$ in his R/C car than I did my Buggy, kinda made him a bit jealous of me cause I could get in and drive mine :grin:
Now I may hafta get my son to dig out his R/C stuff and build me a miniature V-Rod to match mine :thumbsup:

Keep up the good work

Having your son build a mini version of your V-Rod would be awesome. You could go to shows and park the mini-me rod on top of the real one! Appreciate your feedback-thanks!

Somewhere, there's a pic of someone who did just that, but in several scales. fs, 1/2, 1/4 (like a pull around wagon) 1/8, 1/24, or along those sizes, was a cool pic :funny:

And I fixed the 'didn't know it was R/C' problem ;)

Oh Yes-Michael Smith-his work is fantastic! He also works in a smaller scale too-which makes things even more intricate to build.
