    I'm just wondering if there is. I got a K-5 model at the englishtown swap meet here in Jersey. It's called the "Mad Mudder 2" or something along those lines. The thing is, it's a full blown mud racing truck, but I wanna make it look more like a street truck (no zoomies, huge manifold w/ double carbs, racing seat). I've already made this model once, w/ a 454 and seats out of a 70 chevelle I killed by accident ( and it was to scale too!) So, I need a whole buncha parts to make it look like I want. Problem is, I don't wanna break up any of the models I have. Is there such a place that sells single parts for custom applications?

    I'm sure there are, but don't know who they are. There is a guy over on the Race-Dezert message board that custom builds race truck models, you might want to try checking with him.

    I think Hobbytown USA sells individual parts. I can't remember exactly what the carry, I'm usually there for RC parts. I'll check next time I'm there.
