    I hope everyone isn't getting tired of Joe stuff yet. Here we have another straight repaint. I have had this Desert Fox since I was a kid and always wanted to see a more urban color scheme on it. So I broke out the Tamiya primer and hit it up with Krylon ultra flat primer and satin black. The inside and missiles were painted with Testors flat white. I used the Cobrastickers.com Desert Fox decal set and dubbed it the Street Fox. I sort of wonder how one of these would look painted up in Roadbuster colors.

    The Desert Fox was one of my favorite vehicles back in the day. It was right up there with the Dreadnok "Thunder Machine". I love the more urban warfare colors scheme you gave it.

    Thanks! Yeah I always liked this thing as a kid. The Thunder Machine was awesome too, did you see the video or pics of the Thunder Machine someone built and drove in the Dragoncon parade? That thing was incredible.

    *edit* Found the video I was mentioning with the Thunder Machine. I would love to get to drive this thing! http://youtu.be/ZRboo6SuKT8?t=1h6m
