I love building hobby grades, but I really enjoy turning toy grade into hobby grade for some reason. I like the Tamiya Jagermeister Porsche and plan to get one day, but I have a thing for trucks, so I decided to make a Jagermeister Tyco Bandit Racing truck from some old parts I had laying around. The body is an old nissan fast traxx which is basically a Tyco Bandit on tank tracks. I replaced the toy electronics with upgrades, servo, brushless motor, and modern electronics. I will swap out the plastic toy shocks with some oil shocks and install some head and tail lights. I like the way it's turning out so far. Anyone else turned toy grade into hobby grades?
Well I think I can call the Jager Bomb done. Grasshopper number 5 started off with a little idea in the back of my head and after a suggestion from a nephew it got brought into reality. Built mechanically box stock save for the addition of Hornet rear shocks and some more bling from T4works. The body was painted in Tamiya Pure Orange TS-98, which came out a little brighter than expected or planned, and then given two light cotes of Tamiya Pearl clear. This gives a nice sparkle to it although it can't be seen in the photos and is not easily seen in person. The alternate colour Hopper stripes & Jagermeister sticker sets came from MCI Racing once again and I took a punt on going for a slightly darker green which I think works ok. I also scaled back the Jager ones from 1:10th to 1:12th scale to ensure a good fit. The alloy wheel caps were found on ebay and cap the whole look off just nicely.
