Superb paint job... just been on ebay looking for a cheap GH body to try my hand at something similar!
Cheers slimmy, thank you for the kind comment! It took a lot of concentration to get those decals on there. Particularly with my daughter pestering me like mad to let her stick the decals on!
Now there's an idea. I have some spare front wheels for it... just got to keep an eye out for some rears and I could five them a coat of pink... would keep my daughter happy for sure!
Thanks for all your help Slimmy. I think I'm getting the hang of this now. Think it's about time I got the camera back out and took some action shots of the R.S. and my other cars for my showroom!
Yeah she's getting quite good with them now. Loves the full throttle a bit too much though... especially in reverse! She thinks it's hilarious haha.
Thank you so much for the nice comments. I love doing the shells I must admit. I've got a couple of new shells on order so I can do some custom designs... That should be fun! :)
Ebay auction win...
Thanks for the excellent comments guys! I really enjoy building Tamiya RCs. Doing the body shells is my favourite. I much prefer the kits to the Ready to Run stuff. It adds to the fun. I thought about doing a Rally conversion on this chassis, so I could use it off road, but it's probably more cost effective to sell this one and buy a Rally model.
Only 1 pic i'm affraid
A mate of mine had one of these. Fantastic looking cars. Tamiya should re-re this one. Would do well, especially with the TV exposure of 'The Quattro' on Ashes to Ashes.
Very nice indeed. The more Scorchers I see on here, the more I want one... Think I might have to drop plenty of hints for Santa this year if the Re-Releases are still available then! :) Love the stars and stripes.
Excellent job on repairing that body! Looks great on the DT02 chassis. The drive looks excellent too!

Troy Heli King
A stunning model! I could never bring myself to fly something that looked as good as that. Fantastic! :)

Ooh very nice indeed!
Look what posty brought me today!!!
I've been tempted by these everytime I visit their site. Will probably give in and buy one at some point! They do look pretty cool for the money. I guess even if you stuck a Sport Tuned motor in it'd be pretty good.
Only box art i`m sorry
Very nice indeed! Superb job on the body work, and that trailer is fantastic :)
Escort mkii rothmans
Fantastic! I've always loved the old escort Rally cars. Reminds me of a kid when I used to watch the Lomard RAC Rally go round my grandads farm in the 70's. They used to fly through his farm yard and frighten the B'Jesus out of my Grandma!
Like poop off a shovel!
Cheers :) Yeah the blue's ok... just a shame I can't get it off though so I can re-do it, even as box art. Might make some of my own decals for it maybe.
Like poop off a shovel!
Cheers guys. I'll get some Dot3 and try it. Tried dot4 on one body and it seemed to work. Didn't notice any changes in the lexan though...
Will try and come up with a name, have a few ideas. My other half has a craft cutter thing that can cut vinyl letters so I'll design something in Photoshop and get her to cut it out for me :)
Paint paint & more paint
No, the protective sheet had been peeled off. I've now got it stripped and started polishing it up a bit and it's coming up ok. Will spray it over the summer.
Once it's done I'll probably put the body up for sale to be honest as I won't have a chassis to put it on once it's converted to a baja / stadium raider chassis.
Mad as a box of frogs!
It's got Fastrax Block 1/10th Buggy Front Tyres all round. They are pretty soft i guess, but they work just fine for me!

Now that's three books my wife would never understand, but would keep me occupied for days... weeks... probably years...
