Re: Completed Navigator Project!!!

the wheels don't spin or turn, if you look at the before pics, the car is mising the front axel and the rear is busted. I hope that answers your question.

Thanks for posting a reply nosliw2004!

Re: Completed Navigator Project!!!

If you can tell me what whould make it "less poor" that yould be greatly appreciated. By the way the car was dusty on the first picture, it is not the paint.

Re: Completed Navigator Project!!!

not bad at all,

but I have a little tip that helps a huge amount, if you tune 1:24 scale, grab a stock POS in 1:24 scale then grab a DubCity or Jada tuned one with lots of Tvs and big trunks, SUVs are the best, rip everything out of it and a little of cutting and glueing, you got a sweet fully tuned car for under a $30 total

1:18 are more expensive, I did a cayenne but I don't feel like uploading the pics unless people want to see it, I just that lazy

Re: Completed Navigator Project!!!

I don't know why you ppl say it's not bad. Tell the truth.

IMO before= better then after. Everything you touched sucks. My opinion w/o BS.

Peace.

Re: Completed Navigator Project!!!

We all have to start somewhere. I suggest you find another website if you want to diss others' work cause we dont do that on this site.

That was not needed. I can't make cars to be like Dub City ones, but I can at least try my best

Re: Completed Navigator Project!!!

The paint job is not too bad. The accent stripe is kinda neat even though there is some overspray. And the wheels actually fit the truck nicely. I'm just not convinced on the interior. I know it has three TVs and a sub but I really can't see how it's set up. Overall a pretty decent job on it.

Re: Completed Navigator Project!!!

Thanks, im glad you dont think that it not too bad.

THe interior is made of mirror cardboard which you get from dicast model cases. The subs and other things in the back are used from other cars. The seats are just spray painted black, and I took the two back row seats out and put a row of three seats, which unfortunatly cannot be seen.
