Bodies arrived last week and I managed to get together a plan for ROD III
This will be based on an altered wheelbase HPI Cup Racer and will use the 34 Ford Pickup body from Parma.

A Rat Rod / Modern Rod type setup will be the theme for this one...
I'm using this as my base along with an extra set of chassis plates.

These are my reference pics but there will be a few twists and turns on the way not pictured

I've always loved the raw steel of Jimmy Shine's truck.

But I also like the grill on the last truck.

That first reference pic... Looks like a very detailed model???? Hard to tell. Looks like some photo trickery going on there?

I think I've seen it on rc crawler forum. It's rc. And yes it is a 'forced perspective' shot.

Just on pause... I couldn't push myself to cut up my fully built Cup Racer so I'm going full on rear axle/I Beam setup

I think you guys are right on both counts... I love the look, model or not
