Started building an all tube chassis / fiberglass body 69 GTO to...

Re: Impulse buy; Axial SCX6

I saw the video of Exocaged last night where he removed the top completely, probably the one you saw and were mentioning. I'm surprised how good it looked with the top completely removed.
I need to stop watching video of this thing or else I'm gonna be tempted to buy one myself :lol:

Re: Marui Big Bear GRR alloy chassis project/resto

Nice. I owned one for a number of years back when they first came out in the 80's. Use to have so much fun with that truck in the winter in my backyard. I've actually looked at them many times over the years on ebay and considered buying one to restore, but just haven't pulled he trigger yet. Look f...

Re: Impulse buy; Axial SCX6

Different for sure. IMO I kInd'a like the top painted black best, and the whole top removed 2nd best. Then this version is "okay" at best to me.

Re: Gun Room almost done

That is nice gun room. Do you plan to have your RC cars in there too? Or is it a separate space in the garage? Sorry for the delay in replying, been pretty sick for the past few weeks and just now getting caught up on things now. I have an area for my Rc stuff. Basically I turned my entire basement...

Re: New project

Had a bit of a lull in this project. Lots going on for one thing, then I spent the last month really sick with the rona, and also taking care of my 77 yr old Mom who also has it and spent 10 days in the hospital. Trying to care for her right now is a very time consuming thing. But I'm feeling better...

Re: Gun Room almost done

That's a Winchester Centennial 66, 30/30 lever action. It was given to my Dad by my Mom on their 2nd wedding anniversary in 1966. My Dad gave it to me a year before he passed in 1996. It had never been shot when he gave it to me, I'm the only one to ever put rds through it. I don't have any kids of ...

Re: Gun Room almost done

The stock was far from beautiful :wink: might not look like it in the pics but it was pretty rough. If it were a valuable gun then I would have done a restoration on it back to factory condition. But the stock was in pretty rough shape, barrel was rusted/pitted, plus the Model 41 was a gun that is v...
