Sorry kit collectors, but you go right ahead and WHACK THAT PLASTIC! This thing is gonna be INCREDIBLE! I love working in 1/16th scale. Granted, it calls for a lot more scratchbuilding due to the lack of kit-supplied parts 'n pieces, but when it's done that monster will RULE the contest tables!
Yea ive imagined a few problems with rolling such small edges, i was hoping you would say nah go for it its easy, rolls easy, hahaha. ill give it a go but, i recon ill try turning a cylinder with radiused edges the right size up on the lathe to pursuade the ally sheet over, see how i go...

Hello All, I haven't been on for a while to update my nightmare, been doing a lot of other 1/16th stuff that keeps me busy Here is a small update on the chassis
All the flanges are being cast in brass, with the KW logo on them, hopefully have them soon, I am thinking of etching a new chassis, with all the bolt holes already drilled, I have also made new tyres to replace the kit tyres, I will cast these in soft resin, My tyre on the top, and the original kit tyre on the bottom I have also done the steer as well
