    You amaze me all these projects. 1 vote for the rear air bags. They look so cool. May I ask where you got them?
    Thanks! The air bags are made by LESU, available on ebay. They have a cool internal spring, gives them a realistic appearance during compression.

    Wow! Humpty Dumpty should have had such skilled re-assembly/put back togetherness.
    Beautiful work sir!
    If you build it, We will watch!

    Experimented with some 3/4" PVC - made a couple of side tanks, still need to add straps. I had a few inspirational photos sent to me yesterday morning, I couldn't wait to get home and see if I could pull off the flat bed! It will be clad with styrene - deck will be diamond plate. I might add rear fenders. #teamknkhardware #nankinhobby #rc4wd #exclusiverc #scaleCOEIMG_0286.jpgIMG_0283.jpgIMG_0279.jpgIMG_0276.jpgIMG_0272.jpgIMG_0271.jpgIMG_0285.jpgIMG_0288.jpgIMG_0292.jpg

    Tackling a few more details on the Pumpkin to '55 Ford COE - now an official flat bed. Added the visor, got the sides done, cut the fenders out of the Pumpkin bed, sectioned them and added material to ft over the dually's, Mocked up the exhaust, added the faux tool box doors and added straps to the tanks. #teamknkhardware #scalecoe #scale55ford #nankinhardware #rc4wd #tamiya #rcdriver #rccaraction #scalebuildersguild #exclusivercIMG_0298.jpgIMG_0297.jpgIMG_0296.jpgIMG_0294.jpgIMG_0293.jpgIMG_0299.jpgIMG_0301.jpgIMG_0303.jpgIMG_0304.jpg

    Really clever way to make some matching rear fenders.
