Very modded fav shark mouth, not box art.

Thanks for all your comments.

I haven't made a model like this in a loooong time, my last RC car was back in 1990, but I worked as a modelmaker for a number of years, and I really enjoy making this one!
I couldn't resist the FAV when I saw it was rereleased.
Think I'm hooked.....

Oh yeah mrmtodd-
The rivets in the roof bars and bumper are 3.2mm diameter popped through into the alu tubes, and in the sidepods have 3.2 countersunk rivets, all popped into the plastic.

Sweeeeeet! A proper FAV shark mouth!
Its a really great kit to build, and I bet its excellent with the tuned motor.

Maybe I could ask for another one for christmas!!

Ahh Blackpool, I used to work there too! But it was never sunny then.

I thought that was some kind of wind-powered visor cleaner for the pilot's helmet on top of your Champ.

Nice one :)

Shark mouth project part ii
bdamit

Thanks fellas!
The more I look at the thing, the more I reckon it needs to be dirtied up a bit more, that worn paint with its shiny finish? Something not quite right... I now have a spare body if it all goes wrong!
SRBbloke- the collars are 8mm internal dia. clear plastic / rubber syphon hose, heated and stretched over the damper. It's supposed to be a temporary fix while I decide what to use, I'm looking at fuel line hose clamps at the moment.
The new body will get the same side pod treatment, but I shall develop the shape a little more, and aim to blend it all into the body tub with our friend Tamiya Putty.

This gives me inspiration for my Mad Bull Scorcher project.... :)

So far I like the way this is going.

Thanks guys.
I had a fun morning chopping up this car!
I'm happy with he way it turned out, those nerf bars from my FAV came in useful as the new roll cage, so the blue roll cage from this model now pokes out the back of the cabin , as can be seen in the side view.
I'll put more pics in, these are roughly photoshopped mobile phone photos!
The backdrop is an aluminium baseplate for a cine camera dolly I manufacture. Makes a nice industrial BG.
