Since my ongoing project to copycat @ALEXKYRIAK famous Neo Scorcher Formula One design is still waiting for parts to arrive, I thought I would rebuild and redesign my existing and quite tired TT02B Plasma Edge II buggy. I also wanted to prove to myself that the Plasma Edge body could be beautiful if painted and designed appropriately because from searching online, I see a lot of gorgeous Neo Scorchers but rarely a pleasant Plasma Edge. So let me take you through the build of what I am calling the Tamiya TT02B ICE Buggy. I started from a very different buggy which had seen to much bashing and grass racing I cleaned everything up, disassembled the parts and started working on dressing up the new replacement chassis. First things first, protect those cavities near the direction in which stones get stuck, sometimes impacting driving. I used playing cards which I cut to dimension and glued before painting. Since I wanted to get to this ICE design, I used flat mat white on the chassis and body. I like the result. I also worked on the bottom of the chassis, painting it and protecting it with a carbon looking sticker. I then reattached all parts including carbon schock mounts, a brushless GoolRC motor and ESC and moved on to work on the body. I started by using mask tape and protective plastic sheels to paint three areas for three icey colors. I played around with only 3 colors : white mat, Tamiya Anodized blue and glossy black. I used the white and black as backgrounds to create different shades of the Tamiya blue. Here is the result before I started working on the spoiler. l think the ICE design was coming to life beautifully at this point Finally I started thinking of an original spoiler design and after long thoughts I figured... Why not take it upside down? And here it comes... Once it was in place and looking at all the leftover lexan, I had the idea of making it a double decker (so to speak). This turned out to be a good idea, it really looks different from anything I've seen. And finally, after long hours of building, masking and painting, here is my version of the TT02B Plasma Edge II. The Tamiya TT02B ICE Buggy ! Let me know what you think
Hi just got a set of Schumacher Vee truck tyres so I rootled through my spare wheel and tyre stock and found a set of Blitzers rims. Perfect for what I want. I decided to smarten them up but when I got to the last one, one of the fronts I realised quite a bit of the rim is missing, so not really usable. As they won’t fit on my upcoming Dual Rider with 3 wheels😂 I need a replacement. Does anybody out there have a spare Blitzer/Agroshot front wheel. Don’t care what colour red, white, yellow or dyed/painted already?🤞🏻
