Tarantula  DMX

 

Original body was a blow mold this one is not. Work on this mold was to enhance the body detail and line work especially the rear of the body and grill screen.

 If everything goes good this should be a detailed over the mold body.

 Here are progress photos.

enjoy; g

I knew Pablo would be interested. He's built a couple, that I know of, original bodies into slot cars.

I almost ashamed to admit I had one of these bodies on my cox car.

This might kill that NOS body that gets listed on Ebay every couple weeks for outrageous money!      Here is a better body than DMX ever thought about making!

Wow Gene, didn't realize you were doing the J - it looks great! 

 

I always thought the Tarantula was kind of ugly, but it's rare and all that... nah, it's still an ugly car, even if your repop is excellent.
