Holy hell that was the most realistic R/C video I've EVER seen. Everything down to the original bare white steel wagon wheels. It even sounded just like the old 351! I loved it. At first I thought it was the full size truck until I saw it in the grass. Lol. Awesome! Even those solid axles and differentials! I'm nothing but impressed by the detail in that RC truck!

Plus when it gets close to the camera, you can hear the servos turning the steering on it.

what an impressive looking and sounding ford truck. My neighbor has a 351 powered ford truck from the mid 70s and it sounds JUST like that RC.

It was a miniature Afghan Hound! They really know how to drive off road!

THAT is a most excellent example of R/C work, videography, and sound sync. Based on the grass, sticks, and rock comparisons, that model is not all that large.

There's a guy near here that has a scale model of a B-17 WW-II bomber. All 4 engines, retractable landing gear, bomb bay, bombs - the whole 9 yard. They start it up, taxi to the runway, full power, flight, bomb run. And the wingspread is 8 feet.

This is not the same plane, but you get the idea -

I use to fly RC planes and I loved it. My step dad and I were going to build an RC B-29 bomber with a 12 foot wing span. That woulda been sweet. I've seen one just like it on YouTube. So realistic. My biggest plane had a 7.5 foot wing span on it. Was fun to fly[COLOR="Silver"]

It's not an R/C. If you pay attention around 4:04 into the video, you'll see it is just documented video recorded by some of the few survivors of the Catpocalypse.

The front end work is particularly impressive.

:histeric: Thanks, now I am ready and able to face the rest of the day at work, having had a good belly laugh! (It's quite a belly to get laughing too!)
