Brilliant stuff. Love your work. Any close up shots of the rear suspension?
My childhood dream! ready! ready! ready!
Looks awesome. I have one too, hope to do a similar resto of the same quality someday!!
Robbe airport fire controll truck
Lets see some video!!!
Remember that the second steer axle doesn't turn as much as the front one!! Just thought I'd mention it, as I owned a twin steer truck for a while.
Wet outdoor shots
Gorgeous. I'm buying one.
[traded] off to the states...
Sorry to be the one to tell you this, but you will NEVER find a body for this car ;)
My childhood memories are back again (new pics 06/2009)
Brilliant. Well done indeed. If mine turns out this good I'll be stoked.
Toyota 2000gt- the greatest car of all time
Absolutely gorgeous. PLEEEZE post videos of it running and the lights working!!
Novak 4.5 is in!!
Body fits on ok, the fan is under the body, sucks air from the gap between the chassis and body. At the moment there is a bulge because of all the wiring on the ESC side, shorten the wiring and it will be perfect (I don't want to do this). There is a bigger bulge in the body on the other side because of the servo plugs poking outside the chassis line. This is only because the reciever is too big. Otherwise, no problems, the body will go on and sit correctly.
Yep, goin' the flames!!! ;)
Nice and scale
Actually, the Porsche 959 wheels suit this car perfectly.
The dark impacted
Ran it into a dog, and it barrel rolled about 10 times, and yep, the wing paint is stuffed. :( Other than that, it absolutely flies!!
Modified td to xc realism...
Hey, I like this!! Might do it to the Cloddenator!!
That's awesome. Love your work!!
Sand force....top scorcher???
Tyres are put on temporarily. It needs longer axles, I tried the Frog ones but I think where the dogbones are different. I have to find some suitable axles. Can't really lower the body any more otherwise the whels might hit the body when suspension is compressed :(
Totally 'tricked out' optima - red devil
I see red, I see red, I see red!! Wonder how many non-Aussies got that ;)
Sneak peek 04
Seen it, love it........copying it!! ;) Well, maybe not, but I'd thought I'd flatter you with some imitation.
Clod bod on mr lifto!!
Tamiya should release this....with the MFU pounding out some supercharged big block Chev noise (hehe...imagine that!!), this would be a great kit. They could include flame masks, mod one part of the body (the front panel), sort out the mounts, box art, and Presto.....another kit. Do it, Tammy-wammy....and put me down for one.
Hi lift from stella
Hehe....batty old moose....I'm using that one....

Flames were a stencil set for a Lexan body, joined up over the bonnet with masking tape. The glue from the stencil stayed on the paint and I spent a whole night with polishing compound and my finger rubbing it off!! It gave a very smooth finish though....both to the paint, and my finger!!
