Default New UFO Shadomobile

I'm re tooling and adding to the old offering. Just Started by making masters for the chassis, If I can I might do the wheels and tracks as well.

Hi Mamas,

Will the chassis be part of the bodyshell, or will it be separate?

My RC version next to the Master shell on a new kit chassis. Original Mobiles had 53 link tracks, If you want to go the RC route then you have to lose a link otherwise the sprockets will not catch the tracks and will slip. Dont forget the originals were pulled on wire.
