That looks really good especially with the engine option, I have a unbuilt armoured car and engine just waiting for me to get round to it so this is a bit of inspiration.
Regards
Steve

Go on Steve take the plunge, You will enjoy it, Its a shame to put the body on hiding the fabulous engine, You could make the engine side panels removable like Phil did, And those wire wheels, Hours of fun!!!!!,
Regards, Chris.

EPIC BUILD!
If the background was different on that first shot it could pass off as the real deal. Well done mate.

Chris,
You have done a magnificent job on the RRAC. It is great to see them still being built. I am close to starting my build as well. Did you find any problems in the build that you had to overcome? I would welcome any heads-up you can offer. Several of the other build post have been very informative about details and add-ons.
Very Well Done!
David
