Hi guys,

I want to show you my modification of a Tamiya Ford F-150 FlareSide body (aka Blackfoot).

That was my first try to mod an ABS body :ashamed:

Here is my base

I removed the ugly paint

and cut a little bit

Than I built a new bed from polystyrene

That's your first try at a dashboard??!?! Well, that's an amazing job.

All around, this is a beautiful job. This would look right at home on a MST-CFX chassis.

Nice work! I have been contemplating chopping up my old Blackfoot's body to do something similar, to put on my newly-built Barrage. I think you just inspired me to do it. I hope you don't mind if I "copy" you...

I'm the new owner of an ECX barrage, I bought on clearance before Christmas. And I may know where I can get a deal on a blackfoot body. I love what you're doing and may follow suit.
