Welcome to our little slice of paradise. Very Happy To post a photo, first you must have the photo uploaded to an online service such as Fotki or Photobucket that allows direct links. I recommend Photobucket. Once you have the photo uploaded, copy the direct link to the photo. Click the "Img" button above, paste the link and then click "Img" again, that closes the link to the photo. It will look like [Img]link[/Img]. If you use Photobucket, just click the link on "IMG code" on the right side of the photobucket screen and paste it in your message. It will already have the Image tags [img][/img] on the link. Hope this helps.

Rob

This is a very interesting project. Do you have more photos? This one is a big tease knowing that you are working off of a Mustang. Very Happy I need to see more angles of the body so far.

This is just freaking awesome! You are doing a great job with it. Tamiya producing a kit of these cars is on my wish list as well. There ain't no way I'd be able to pull of this type of project, kit bashed, scratch or what have you. I look forward to some more progress and wish you the best of luck with it!

I see Pattos has V8 Supercar slot car bodies. I was wondering if they would make a good model? He has a huge selection of decals for the cars.

I hope your arm gets much better, I am really anxious to see your super car build as it develops. You are doing great, it looks really good. Thanks for sharing. Very Happy thumbsup thumbsup

Click on the arrow on the lower right of the black bar the picture is in. This is the "Share Photo" icon. The pop up window had three options and you want BBC code (far right). Pick your photo size (I am choosing 1200x1600) then copy the code and past in the message on the forums

PS. Love the project!

I've been following this from the start Dennis. I really like your idea of using the Stang body for this project. I'm anxious to see this puppy on the chassis.

Nice work and you certainly like to take on a challenge. It is funny that there has not been a model done of a Supercar, but I guess itís all supply and demand. There are some excellent die cast being done...keep going.
