Tamiya M-06 with US Style MR2 Mk1 Shell

Recommended Posts

Thanks all. I have more of the fleet on the go now but still haven’t got round to setting up a picture hosting account so can’t yet post up any pictures. Follow the thread and when I’ve done it you’ll see.

cheers

I got a pair of TL01 chassis for the Lexus. The one with the running gear fitted was broken right across the front gearbox so I stripped it, cleaned everything and rebuilt it back up on the good chassis. Sourced some nice wheels from and tyres from the Republic. We’re good to go with the next shell. Good luck to the front splitter.

It is. It’s what shall I call a likeness of my wife’s work van.

I’ve had a chance to do a bit more on the Lexus in the last few days.

As always there’s a special picture just for @Jason1145

More to follow soon. This needs to get done as there is much in the queue.

Pretty much done. I think I’ll take the dark window film off in the future and spray tint from the inside as the film is useless and bubbly. I also hate the front light decals so they’ll be off and done from inside.

Other than that, with some optional extra mirrors and a shark fin all painted black, here she is.

My 1:1 Lexus is being paint detailed this week and once it’s done I’ll do the side by side shot.

Well I changed the lights. These look much better.

And I got my 1:1 back from the paint detailers so here are the side by side pictures

Have you got a bodyshell for the Focus? Would the Matrixline one work?

The van looks ace!

Hi, yes I’ve got the shell. I’m just looking for a (cheap) TT-01 or a TL-01 chassis now.

Well it’s coming along nicely. I absolutely love the paint. I did 2 coats of flake first (PS-53) and then several coats of black (PS-5)

The pictures don’t do the colour of the flakes any favours but it’s probably going to be better in the sunshine.

Anyway, here’s the pictures.

At this point there was a little mishap. Don’t look if you’re squeamish.

A slice right down to the bone and LOADS of blood so a trip to A&E was needed and they were fantastic. Nice bit of plastic surgery, x-rayed and all bandaged up in just 2 hours. All power to the NHS.

I did this whilst cutting off the body posts with a brand new blade. What a stupid mistake.
So I carried on anyway.

The decals did a great job of hiding my terrible my masking/stripping.

I had to adjust the roof spoiler as it wasn’t designed to be in that position or look like that.

I smoked the windows and lights and fitted the light buckets painted on the back in silver. The masking on the fog lights is still on as I’m going the full 9 yards on this one and fitting LEDs.

Focus ST JPS 1/10

Back end ready for the big ‘ol exhaust tips and the front is getting an intercooler.

I have to say that I’m glad I’m not using the tail light decals. They’re not a good match and pretty poor quality.

Anyway, just mirrors,  LEDs, exhaust and intercooler to go.

That looks a bit stingy! 

The Focus is looking good, what shell is it? Pity about the decals right enough.

It’s a Matrixline shell. It’s the only decent Focus Mk2 shell I could find. I’ve changed the spoiler from how it’s meant to be to how I like it. Luckily I’m not using those light decals .

I figured that last night after a few Google image searches and couldn't resist buying one since I now have a 1:1 Focus. Not a 5-pot like your son's but still an ST.

That’s gotta be a fun car? What do they have, 170bhp?

185bhp for the mk3 since it's a diesel. It pulls really well through the gears and is really tuneable.
