Not for the moment, maybe in future.

As soon as the modifications are done, the "special" parts and electronics are installed and the body 100% finished I want to start additionally the other projects like the B3, my XX-4 or the Mid Custom Special.

I already have a second chassis kit lying here. Just have to look after someone who could anodize the parts. If I want a real replica I should also modify the nose plate and battery strap, right?

that's good to know. a future anno job on your replica will complete it nicely. yeah the nose plate, battery strap, rear tower, and rear custom body mounts. if you have a dremel and a counter sink bit you'll be good to go.

As you can see the chassis was blue anodized. Notice the modified nose plate and the battery strap. Also the rear bulkhead was modified. The rear shocks were fixed on the rear of the shock tower, and the tower itself was installed on the front of the bulkhead instead of being on the back of it. Some "special" parts were installed like gold shock shafts, RCPS turnbuckles and different body mounts on the rear.
Are those Yokomo Copper rear springs?

So guys...I need your help now :) following decals are missing, maybe someone could help me out:

- white, big AE logo
- Reedy modifieds on the rear wing
- UNKNOWN: decal on the front, under the AE logo???
- number 1 on the front window
- UNKNOWN: these small decals under the wing and next to the RCPS logo

looks good daniel. the decals really make it pop. that lrp decal make sure you cut away the yellow portions. you could shorten the rear wing a bit, to match the pavidis wing. it is also mounted on the rear a little higher back too.

the decal on the front is the "mustang". i think you could get that one from a ds sheet. maybe someone has one laying around.
you already two number placards on your t2 kit sheet. you'll just need one more from someone else for the front window.
that little decal next to the rcps decal is the same as the rear 'mechanix' decal.

looking at mark's truck, i could see why you think they the decals look smaller. if you look at his side windows they're masked much lower and larger than yours. that's the reason why the decals look smaller on your truck.
