Blackfoot restoration with aluminum hop ups etc...

Recommended Posts

Since i love the blackfoots and having a few of them around. I decided to make one a little different to the ones i already have..

Clean up time first.. scrub scrub scrub... :)

Painted it a different color since all the other ones are all red. A little color to make it pop up a bit.

Looks great so far. I like those front aluminum C hubs.

With all that aluminum, a cool color for the chassis would have been Tamiya's brushed aluminum silver paint

Thanks... The alu hops ups are pretty neat looking..

They are pretty well built.. I was deciding on polishing it or not. It might stay like this for now..

love this build ! what paint you using for the plastic parts ??

Just regular spray can paint.. Enamel i'm guessing.

Wow, that's pretty impressive. I didn't realize almost everything could be replaced with an aluminum part. :)
