Rather than have individual 'build' threads for all of my CC cars I thought I would start one thread and document everything (mainly cos many are already built and are just being tinkered with). I have a bit of a problem with acquiring CC01s, and most recently a CC02. I very rarely drive my models as I have a young family and struggle to find the time, but I like to mess about with them in the evenings when I get a chance. Ultimately I will use them a lot more, so it's important to me knowing that they will work when I eventually get the time! So first up I have my most completed model; a Pajero Metaltop Wide: As lovely as those wheels look, they rub like anybody's business when you try to run this one. I also have to run very stiff suspension since this body is incredibly heavy - notice the RCModelex cage / roof rack combo. This CC01 looks great on the shelf, but I really want to run this bodyshell, especially since it already has some 'road rash' marks from a former life so it isn't exactly shelf-queen worthy. It sat in this state for about 18 months (where does time go?) until I found some cheap beadlock wheels and tyres from the Far East and the dimensions worked on paper. They arrived and I think they look awesome: So now we don't have any rubbing issues! Yay. But the weakness was the chassis itself; despite throwing a lot of money at upgrades. I always wanted an MST CMX or CFX ladder-frame chassis for this Pajero, but I never had the spare cash. Such a huge amount of time went past that Tamiya eventually caught-up and released their own ladder-frame chassis - the CC02. So this was promptly bought and built, after I sold off some of my TA03 collection. And my beautiful Fast and Furious Supra build- Gone but not forgotten! Anyway; the CC02 comes with the Mercedes G500 lexan bodyshell and 267mm wheelbase. I built it to this spec in the above images, but I want the G500 to go with a certain 'theme' I have behind some of my other builds, so the bodyshell has been temporarily put on hold whilst I turn my attention to shortening the CC02 to the 242mm Pajero Wheelbase. This is as far as I got with this particular car for now - I'm waiting on some Hard-body mounts for the CC02 to make their way over from China - it could be a while! Next up I have my long-standing CC01 Jeep Wrangler Jurassic Park build. I'll post that separately below as it's been "In progress" for over 2 years now!
Hello again friends and welcome to my most recent build. I was going to name this one "What Tamiya could have and should have" just because of my disappointment when this model was originally released. OK, so let's start. When Tamiya first released the Volkswagen Amarok, it was on the WT01 chassis, and it was meant to emulate this truck: In my opinion, Tamiya completely missed the mark when they released a 2wd WT01 version of this vehicle: It's not even the right color!
