The Monster Beetle is right up there with the Blackfoot- one of my favorites as it recalls many silly childhood memories of the 80's, like most of us. I built this in about a month with a good condition Blackfoot chassis and some NIB parts. It's still missing the driver but we all know how much I love painting drivers (ha!) so I'll get to it someday. The candy red over chrome silver came out perfect, with a deep, rich finish. It's a Blitzer body w/ MB nose cone airbrushed with Tamiya acrylic clear red over alclad. Once cured I wet-sanded and hand buffed the finish. The results are stunning. Some bling with the King Blackfoot wheels and a little silver accent. I love this build and I am very happy to have done it. After these pics were taken, I was able to find a NIB G-tree which contains the much needed servo covers and front lights.
