Scorcher finally finished

Recommended Posts

So I'm going to call this one done.

You know how it is when you just can't help doing more and more..

It has had a ton of mods done to it and a lot of hours put in to get it where it is. It was built as a runner, but I'm at the point I don't want to ****** it up by rolling it, so I'm having to weigh up my options..

Still I'd always wanted one and the build has been fantastic.

Cheers Daz

Very nice job you've done there. Subtle changes and ones that up the realism even further. I love it B).

Cheers

Stunning!  Even the sponsor decals are period correct and pertinent to Vee-Dub parts manufacturers.

Thank you :)

They are a mix of Re Re, Baja sponsor decals and some from my parts bin! 

The Head light covers are from a wild Willy sprue, that I bought to convert  a Kyosho RC speed boat into a 'Wet Willy Custom'' that's still in the works....

I looked at full on early race Baja Bugs and went with the pillar box front screen, to try to get it a bit period correct

The mirrors are from an HPI and are rubber, as it was built as a runner and these are the first to go

Awesome mate, looks like it's ready for the Dakar!!B)

I know what you mean, you put more and more time into something and then it's hard to ruin all that hard work! In my limited experience so far I try to decide at the start if it's destined to be a runner and if it is then I try to stick to that outcome no matter what. Easier said than done though! Looks like there's a lot to damage on your Scorcher!:unsure:
