Cool 1:16 WPL series 4WD scale truck mods.

Hey guys, found this good looking super scale truck when i was on my way shopping for kitchen utensils yesterday. Its the 1:16 scale WPL series crawler models and this one is almost replica of old TOYOTA HILUX while others comes in military truck body. Cost about USD$35 for an RTR unit so i bought 2x boxes for being greedy...so the kitchen utensils can wait for next month cos i can eat some takeaway anyways. The RTR electronics is major garbage but the kit without it is gold, so begins my journey to do some mods and added extra realism to scale crawling looks. I'll keep posting some updates here about my log work on this cool kits here soon. If you guys have a similar 1:16 WPL series share and post em here. Cheer.

Those are original stock tires that comes out from the box, i'm not gonna spent much money to upgrade the tires anything since they are cheap kit. Keeping it stock setup as it is. You can see the details from this website here: https://www.banggood.com/WPL-C14-DIY...?lkid=10738043

I need to print 'good year' decals to attach to this tire.

Id go with pit bull stickers instead of good year. I screen shot this pic of a pit bull rock beast off their website. It looks a lot like the stock tires you have

Yeah it looks almost the same on the side gripping thread except the mid part, original pitbull looks sharp but WPL version is poorly molded knobs. This coming sunday gonna do some chrome paintjobs undercarriage.
