<div class="bbWrapper">That is a really nice build on the Warthog you have there. Good luck on the completion of this project! I'm currently contemplating on making a life size model of the ghost. What would you recommend the frame be made out of? Rounded metal pipe possibly with a welder?</div>

Just for fun one night i have done up a wheeled ghost/wraith. I have done one other ghost on paper and still work on it from time to time but it has real downsized pulse jet rockets for power.</div>

<div class="bbWrapper">Awesome, and I forgot....AWESOME.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> I really wanna see this finished, it would be very cool.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Ive seen a real Warthog on a video, and it looked really nice. I bet yours will look as awesome as the one I saw.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Good Luck with your build<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> /Tahu</div>

<div class="bbWrapper">UPDATE <br /> <br /> JUNE 29<br /> <br /> Haven't gotten a lot done on it since i have gotten back from Houston. All i have done is finish welding out some corners. Been spending time with my kids before i head back to work on the 1st. I got the warthog out in the yard today and thought i would take some pictures of it. I can see now i am going to have to do some work on the ft, and widen the very ft 2 x 4 piece i have there and maybe reangle it just a little next time in. But it seems to be taking shape quite well.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <div class="lbContainer lbContainer--inline " title="3674265116_0deec22272_o.jpg" data-xf-init="lightbox"

Can't really say about the halo2 poster, just took the plastic off halo 2 this time time home. The controller configuration on multiplayer messed me up big time. Maybe i will have a chance to see it next time in.</div>

<div class="bbWrapper">Well since you guys are so amazing the only thing I could probably ever pull off is the fricken mongoose lol. I actually might try that once I go to UTI. Really great progress man. Bookmarking this! And if you ever decide to build another one, give me a call. <img src="data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAIAAAAAAAP///yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7" class="smilie smilie--sprite smilie--sprite2" alt=";)" title="Wink ;)" data-shortname=";)" /><br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> EDIT: BTW you should also invest in a kick-a stereo system. I'm thinking like all Rockford Fosgate with 2x 10&quot;... yeah that would just make this thing even beastlier. Oh and don't forget the Kenwood insert. xD</div>

<div class="bbWrapper">I am VERY interested to see how this will look when finished. It's a good thing you are making that turret removeable because I don't think that would look to good if you were driving down the street with a gun on the back! lol <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> A few years ago, my fiance and I started talking about building a warthog and taking it to car shows! LOL We were thinking about using the body of an older style hummer. Of course, we don't exactly have the funds to do this and I kinda doubt we ever will.</div>
 
<div class="bbWrapper">Dude, it's looking good! Is there anyone helping you? I bet you could go a <b>lot</b> faster, especially when it gets to making the shell.</div>

<div class="bbWrapper">Rearmament has begun my friends....<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> This is truly an amazing project, one that when finished, I believe should end up in the elite showcase. The amount of work, time, money, effort, and skill. who knows, maybe the military would like to see a prototype in action. 2525 may be closer than we think...</div>
