New built from parts
Madmuz77

Thanks for the comments, I was undecided whether to make this a Monster Racer or a King Cab, as new MR shells seem easier to find then KC ones. But I allready had KC wheels & decals & decided a repro KC shell would still look nice on my shelf. I do have an original shell on a KC runner to compare & the differences are only in the detail, the Tamiya one is much better of course.

Superb detailing, my vote to win. Also best use of a box wrench i've seen in years.

Nice project, my Monster beetle once looked like this, looks like you've got some work to do. I've got a boxload parts I don't need anymore, let me know what you need & I might be able to help you out.

yes there are several differences between the Hotshots I & II, diferent body & roof, suspention setup, chassis, can't remember if there are others. I don't have a Hotsot to compare, just going from the manuals.

Thanks Crash, the Boomerang shock supports look the same & I now have a Boomerang B parts tree on the way. I'm still looking for the Hotshot II D parts though as I'm after the shock tower & skidplate which I think are unique to the HS II.

Hi Stuart, sounds like this kit has a bit of a story behind it. Glad to see my spare gears will be going to a good home though & yes they are the correct ones for this kit.

Thanks for the coments guys. This one will be a shelfer so yes I plan to do it box art, as soon as I can find some Valvoline & Shoei decals to match the originals as the decals I have are from a re-re. need to find an original motor for it aswell.

Thanks matman, your right about not many in WA nearly all parts on were from overseas lots of different countries to this is one well travelled bug. I have run it once with an esc & before I added new parts to it. Havn't run it since I finished it though.

Nice to know there's some of these old girls around locally & runners too :) I might run mine in the future but for now it will stay on the shelf, got plent of other runners.

Nice looking HsII, I restored one of these myself. Took me months to find the d parts tree with the original skid plate, looks like you have a Hs one on yours. easier battery acess:)
