  1. OK, not sure what to call this project yet as I'm still jamming some ideas down, but I've already started the build so I thought I'd throw out my thoughts so far. The story begins back at the end of the summer, when my wife decided to continue in a temp job that was supposed to have finished a while back. At the time she had a bit more spare money than usual, so I raised the idea of more expensive Christmas presents (we normally don't spend a lot). My plan had been to give her a list of new kits, and have her choose one to buy, so I wouldn't know what I was getting until I got it. Well, she didn't really go with that plan, so I decided to go ahead and buy myself the MTX-1 and put it away until Christmas time. The chassis seems to have been well-received, and then just as quickly forgotten. I'm not sure UK / Europe have officially got an MST importer, since I couldn't find it anywhere locally and had to source from abroad. That might explain why there aren't so many of them around. Also the choice of colours and bodies seemed odd to me. I've raised this before, but: Who makes a monster truck out of a Toyota stadium truck? It just seems odd Lots of yellow parts in the Toyota body model, which is restrictive when considering a custom livery Chevy body model comes with more forgiving white parts, but the body is pre-painted, also restrictive when considering a custom livery In the end I went with the Toyota model (officially the TH-1 model), and a '93 Ford body from JConcepts, with the Toyota body planned to be consigned to the parts bin for some other project, whenever I get around to it.
