I actually have a good example of what I'm basing my build off of:



That's pretty similar to what my exo cage will look like.

Man!! I guess someone does have this exo cage....I've been dreaming about getting this done on mine...I didn't know it is possible. Looks great! Can't wait how this will turn out on your 1:10. Good job bro!

LOve the new body and can't wait to see the exo cage. Where did you get the grill mesh for the new body? That looks perfectly scale and stiff enough to work with

Thanks you sir. The mesh is some remnant bits I have left over from an old desk accessory like a letter tray from Office Depot or a place like that.

I am really actually considering white. scratches will be invisible.

But then again, I like teh idea of a crazy custom paint scheme.

Hmmm....
