  1. Hey all. Having had a trawl through on paint questions I haven't found a specific answer to my question. I'm painting my 104 Pro body as a RB16b redbull car. I'm planning on ps-45 translucent with ps-5 backing to give the deep dark purple. Then flat clear over the outside to dull to Matt finish. I have matt decals to suit. However for the plastic parts. There dosn't seem to be a TS translucent purple! My options are: 1. Just use the PS-45 over the already black wing. 2.Tamiya prime plastic and use ps paint in reverse 3. Get some TS-6 black and use the PS-45 ontop 4. Get ts-6 and find a translucent purple in TS type paint? Other questions: Should I sand the parts for better adhesion? Should I cover over with flat clear for better finish or stronger protection? Any other advice as I forsee bashing the front wing alot and don't want a flaky paint job?
  2. I've had my fist ever go. No practice just had time to mark out the garden, set the laptracks on motion mode and test it, then drive. Not making excuses :-) but the grass was a bit to long for it really.
  3. Thanks for the nice details responce. I have found a REDS Vx 540 21.5T Torque 2 Pole Sensored motor. What ESC would you pair with it. I run 2cell lipo in my other 2 cars and would like to leek this setup. I have a TLB02 in the mf-01x with lipo alarm and a Hobby wing 1060 in my tt-02D. The 1060 is much smother and has more control range especially lower end. I'm happy to spend more on this kit. I run Fly Sky radio gear in those. I'm happy with the BS6 reciver with Gyro. Is this aloud in competition?if so with the gyro on or off? I'm looking at the Savox SC1251MG for the front end.
  4. Hey, I have a F104 Pro II arriving tommorow. Very excited after completing a TT-02D and MF-0x I'm looking for guidance on motor and ESC combos, I'd like fast and brushless, but want to keep it in Race rules incase I find a F1 club near me. Servo suggestions also welcome. I have Savox metal gear kit in the other 2.

  8. Thanks. This is my first body so I think you could totally do this. Its also not perfect. There are a few paint splodges and bleed through in spots where shoegoo was used and reacted with magnets / marker pen and on the light buckets when aligning The window trim is Tamiya PS black on the outside. I drew the design freehand with fine marker on the protective film then cut it with a Hobby knife and sprayed it. This method gave me an idea for my next one when taking off some aditional masking ontop of the film as the contrast from sprayed matt black mask fadded and metallic looked ace but was sat on the film. I did try placing some more decals namely a big Alfa serpent logo on the roof but you could see both the edge of the decal and that it was hovering over the colour via a shadow so decided to remove this and just keep to the badges done on my printer and hand cut with silver backed body.
  9. Finish this, pending posible wheel change if I ever find the right thing ( in stock )
  10. Sorry I did not document the build. Thanks to toyolien and Superluminal for help with axel parts. I may still change the wheels to to Gunmetal aloys with treaded drift tires
  11. Does any one know what's the score with uk release of the TAMIYA 58652 1/10 R/C F104 PRO II WITH BODY MODEL KIT. It seemed to be due for April, then June now August, with this update happening 1 day before it was expected. I know global shipping has had issues, but I'm reluctant to place a pre order for the kit without any confidence it wont just keep being knocked back months at a time! so much for my Fathers day present!
  12. Thanks guys. Alfa do have some option alloys that I could match. Or I may just go off plan a little. Mostly bummed out as when I first saw the c shapes though they where perfect!
