OK guys i need your imput, and i want a good many people to chime in with their opinion.

I'm having much difficulty find a place for all the little pieces and parts that i wish to put on my scaled down Tumbler, if it were a one passenger vehicle everything fits perfectly fine, but when i put two people in there, things become so tight, it wont be a comfortable ride, and i dont want people to not want to ride in it just because its uncomfortable.

Now the MAIN thing is, i dont want to make such drastic changes to the outer appearance of my 3d model that you can no longer tell what it is......

....my question to you is, should upscale....or....what?

to quote Jack...

You're nuts.... Go full scale or "forget about it"....


....and im starting to think he was right, i am nuts.

The wife suggest making it only a one seater since she doesnt want another full size vehicle added to the list of soon-to-come full size cars in our driveway.

if i upscale i would go 13 foot long front tires, to rear tires tip to tip. the scale is 10 foot long as we speak.

or scrap the whole idea altogether?

Ok here's the three senarios.......

Man that is badass did you build it yourself? Can you give me a ride?.....Sorry dude I only made it as a one seater.....

Hey Mom and Dad the Tumbler dad built is the bomb. Dad, could you give me a ride to school? Sorry son I only made it as a two passenger and mom wants to ride shotgun....Sorry dude......

Hey Dad can you give Matt amd me a ride to McDonalds in the Tumbler Mom's ready to go. No problem son I made it as a full size four seater, tell Matt to buckle up.......

This Tumbler is so complex to build its hard to think you will build two or three as you upgrade so build it full size......NEVER DOUBT THE "Jack"....Jack knows......hehehe.....BWD

Hey Shaggy if you want to be badass build it as a six seater with a pickup bed. You know its always nice to have a pickup....hehehehe....I know I would be jealous. In retrospect I really didn't need a big block taking up all that space. I just have some personal inadequency issues.....I really don't want to talk about it....hehehehe....Little Wave Dave

Certainly full scale will always be much cooler. It gets my vote too

Chalk up another vote.  I think full scale gets it hands down. 

My wife just called and said she found a brown recluse spider in our kitchen, so she's freaking out, and im freaking out for my family's safety.  That makes the second venomous spider we have seen.   And since the weather has been getting warmer, more and more bugs have become apparent in our home.   The landlord has been gracious enough to keep a consistant amount of bug spray on and in the house, but it doesnt appear to be working.

SSSOOOOO my wife is screaming, (and crying might i add) that she wants out of here, and fast.  and the only way we have to go is up to Washington, or sign a year's lease at anothers place.   and i DONT want to sign another years lease.   

So im about to work myself to death trying to get rid of things and get out of here ASAP.   If my posting goes dead and quiet, please bare with me for a few weeks, im working on means most to me, my family.
