I will take a pic tomorrow for scale but for reference, these models have a wheelbase of about 12 inches.

hey in my work as a dental technitian,I have a 5'X5' vacuume forming machine for vacuuming impression tray's. this will work better than any toy (you can find them cheaper on craigslist)the plastic blanks can be purchased at Patterson dental supply. call them and tell them of you're Idea and they will help you find the right thickness sheets to buy.the sheets cost about 14.00 for 25.
I hope this helps.P,S. they alst forever even with daily use.

OK-will keep that in mind. Right now, these are one-offs but if there is a need to dupe anything I will get in touch. Looks like a cool machine.

That is a big front beam-agree. Tamiya makes the front suspension and while it is beefy, it hold up well in this scale. i think if it were scaled off the real 1:1 dimensions, it would not be strong enough to bash around.

Very very impressive. Welcome to the site, you belong here :D
Really appreciate it. Thank you.
