So I have been racing for a while now and semi turned my back on my love for everything Tamiya including selling off some of my collection to fund my racing. That was until now and that I have come full circle and my racing has died off a bit now. The focus shift back to Tamiya started with the purchase of my Frog which is now complete so next project is now in action. I decided I wanted to get a Blitzer Beetle again (after selling my original to a fellow TC member) but I wanted to try something different as I have never done this before. Now I love the oddness of the Unimog and what Tamiya have on offer for them I like however they didnt fill what I wanted 100% and that is a buggy or stadium truck type kit if you will so I figured a Blitzer Beetle kit and a Unimog body should cut the mustard therefore Project Blitzermog was born. I have put a bit of thought into this and not sure exactly how the body mounting will go but once I get to that point I guess Ill figure that out. I am still waiting for the body to arrive hopefully in the next week or two. The paint colour of the body I have not figured out yet and have been switching between some colours like Silver (Silver is my favourite colour) Orange and even a White. I was also considering doing it in the most horrible colour Tamiya have but havent figured out what that colour is . I also considered a patina look but I dont have the talent to pull that off. So any colour input people would like to put forward I will take on board. I also wanted different wheels and after some Googling, make that a huge amount of Googling I found the wheels I wanted to put on it so purchased them before anything else So I finally picked up the kit and have started the build. Gearbox put together and motor mounted. I may eventually put a quicker motor in it but not sure yet. Rear arms put together Rear end now complete Next Ill move onto the front end once I get some time
