What the hell was that?!
Hello, this is my Wraith.

As you can see it's one of the popular invisible ones. It will be here some day, but I thought it would be a good idea to make a thread to secure my spot in the build off. These are the parts I've collected so far.

I've had them for a week or so, hopefully I'll get to use them. They seem to be a popular tire for the Wraith. That's a fairlead in the RC4WD bag.

Cool, glad to have you join the contest!
We're going to extend the deadline for you guys so you can enjoy the builds without a crazy looming due date

Wow what? You have a stock wraith and an invisible one?
Neither, now.

Finally... you guys have been so patient! Can't wait to see what you turn out
I don't know what the big hold up was, but I'm happy I have it now. They are fun 100% stock, I feel bad changing it. Hopefully it will be for the better.



I think this should be moved to the 1.9 section. :laugh: I'm just having some fun before I tear it apart. I have to add new suspension links to my list, they're bowed out already.:dry:

Ok, I'll go away now

Since I spent all my budget on the truck itself, I'll need to find some body panels in the scrap bin.

thats a VERY sweet scrap bin!! wish mine was that impressive, as it stands it's pretty much just a huge roll of about 20 square feet of styrene. Can't help but to find it odd how you've slaughtered so many front ends, usually people ditch the rear of the trucks. were you making kingcabs?

Keepsakes from all my kills. devil Yeah, lot's of crew cabs and drop beds. Some other oddball stuff in there as well. I have about 150 square feet of styrene on top of that, lol. That won't fit in the bin though!



This has finally become a build thread. I cut a small section out of the back and used the pieces to spice up the rest of the truck. There was hardly any waste.

:horns:

I can already see the brilliance.
Wish I could, I'm already stumped



I was scratching my head on what to do about the suspension links. Then, to my amazement, I found some links in a parts drawer labeled "LINKS". Go figure! I also stripped the interior down so I could get a better idea of what I'm working with.
