Hmmm, shiny. This one looks like they put 1.55's on when 2.2's were needed!

You just need to drop the point in the middle between the 2s lol

couple of questions on scale points:

why do shock hoops have to be welded/brazed rather than bolted to the chassis like a real vehicle?

why does a TF2 get drop body points yet a tamyia yota does not?
both have a lowered beds and neither go to the level of the tailgate hinges or scale level.

I have a question regarding scale points to. I don't understand why you would get points for have leaf springs over coil sprung, especially when it comes to vehicles like the Defenders which only have Coil Sprung set ups in real life.

In my opinion, the points should be representative of what suspension system the vehicles have in real life?

I guess that was my point shallow and deeper don't equal scale.
Neither actually represent the original Toyota bed, as they don't reach the bottom of the tailgate, I haven't got either truck but it seem strange.

Leaf springs get extra points as they are inherently less flexible that coil springs, logically reducing the vehicles performance and therefore making them less competitive in a comp.

Default Scale Points Fender Question?

Thanks for the reply foxtrail but I just being padentic about the "scale" points.

Also another question regarding inner fenders. On the landies I have seen, of which have been alot due to my family being nuts about them, they don't really have inner fenders. On the front you have a plate going from the top of the usually to the footwell of the bulkhead and the rear is just box shaped because of the tub.
This is the best picture I could find:


Here is what I have done, wondering whether if it would be classed as an inner fender? (Going to print them in grey when my new reel comes this week).
