    xr311 body colour?

    According to the manual it should be TS-28 for the Body and XF-1, XF-10, X-11 and X-6 for the attaching parts.

    This car is looking really cool. How robust are the bumpers? I would be afraid to destroying them when I use the car. Regarding the rally lamps you maybe should try enamelled copper wire (I hope you know what I mean). This is available in very small diameters and also in black colour.
  3. Looking good with the new wheels, the complete result is really great. Why do you install a fan for the motor? Do you have thermal problems or just nice to have?
  4. Really cool. Very nice done. I like the name and the look of the lettering.
  5. Hi all! Today I managed to finish my Bullhead, which isn't quit a Bullhead anymore or at least at present. The Bullhead body is still in his box and waiting for a decision of me how to go on with it. But for now I'm very happy how it comes out. As I was not sure what to do colour-wise with the Bullhead, I've ordered a Proline 1980th Chevy Blazer body and choose a (at least for me) complex paintt job. It started with the name of the truck. As I wanted a 80th/90th-style Monster Truck and all of them have a name, I've chosen - in dependence on the Blazer model K5 - the name High 5 to refer to the big tires. The name is borrowed from a t-shirt I've bougth from Blipshift which shows a raised K5. The name was printed mirrored on a masking sheet and painted in four steps with airbrush acrylic paint. Also the window seal of the front window and the doors were painted black. After that I've painted the lower part of the body with Tamiya PS-42 translucent yellow and the upper part of the body with PS-45 translucent purple. All was backed with Tamiya PS-41 bright silver. The front bumper were painted in PS-48 silver anodized aluminium. After that the whole body was backed with PS-5 black. I've never painted a body with so many steps and that extensive masking. Here are some picture of the finished truck: Also made the maiden run of the truck this afternoon in the backyard. My wife tried to make some "action" pics which which wasn't so easy as the truck is much faster than expected with silber cans and a Nimh battery. I think they are pretty good. It's funny to drive this truck as it bouncing around and the steering is is doing what it likes. But it was great fun and my little daugther tried to chase it. That's all for now. I hope you like it.

    I've just solved the problem. The reason for this was the deactivated country settings. I have activated the location identification and everything works now as I live in Germany. I think the reason for this is the new european rule for geo blocking.

    I've been trying to open the website of Modellbau Seidel for several days. Unfortunately without any success. All I see is a white page. I've already deleted the cookies in my browser which also leads to no result. Even the use of different browsers did not help. Does anyone else have this problems?

    I really enjoy this threat and the news you post about your RC playground. The track and it's detailing is getting better with every step.

    So, What Have You Done Today?

    Finished the Body for my Bullhead, well almost. I think I will apply some additional sponsor decals, not too much but something is still missing. I will take some better pics outside when the weather is better (10°C and a little bit rainy currently).
  11. Looking good. But I also liked the worn out body with the dirty and "rusty" rims. Is it a new body?

    Very interesting build, I have something similar in my mind. I will follow your build. And your Datsun looks very nice.

    Backing Colour

    That's a little bit what I'm looking for. Maybe I will order this also. At least I will have it for future projects. Thanks. Thank you for this tip. I have already start a test. Of course I will post it. But it will still take some time till it will be finished. And hopefully it will be nice, up to now there is already a lot of work in this body.

    Backing Colour

    Thanks. I've already googled PS-48 and that was the reason I've bought it. I will it be at least used to paint the front bumper.

    Backing Colour

    Good Morning, Currently I'm painting the Chevy Blazer body shell for my Bullhead. The Body is paint in translucent yellow and purple. I have two different colours for backing, PS-12 silver and PS-48 anodized aluminium. Which colour should I choose? Has anyone done something similar and made some pictures. Unfortunately I have disposed the lexan scrap of the body shell. So I have no material for testing. Any recommendations? Greetings,
