because of the critical high center of gravity which my panel van has, i have made a more flat crawler. some people say  it looks a little bit like a cobra :wink:

Nice hour glass shape. Also lovely color combination. I suggest you to use two dino tails as fangs in front :)

the photo from the top is great and gives your moc a strong and fat shape :wub:

Great model, the colors look nice.  Replacing the orange with green would be cool too.

Do you mean these ones? I'm sure they would look great but I also think they are even to large and bulky. Furthermore the smaller part of the tail has no pin connector.

That's a very good looking body. You could make a very nice road car out of that if it weren't for the contest.
