Well its been a while since my last update, but I just haven’t been able to find masses of time for my Scorcher project.
If the wife sees me working on it, out comes the long of DIY projects she always seems to have... So I try to sneak in to my office and pretend to work, until she hears me using the dremel....
Just recently been talking to more TC members, from all over the world, been given some great advice and wanted to take this opportunity to say “great to meet you all..”
Especially to Mike (Real Wild One) who’s really helped me out in these awkward times...
Back to my Scorcher:-
Hopefully you’ll see from the pic’s I’ve been modifying the shell some more. I finished my split rear window and spoiler, then added the roof scoop. Which was a real pain, that was the fourth one I made, I searched the house trying to find something I could use. But there was nothing I liked, so I cut loads of 1mm strips glued them together and formed shape I liked, then sanded it for ages to smooth it off. There will be oil tubes from the scoop down the middle bar in the rear window and in to the engine bay. As if it where being fed up to the scoop, cooled and then back to the engine.
Then started on the nose cone, I wanted more lights but something different from the normal spots. So I’ve tried a rally style light pod, but also decided to push the nose 3.8mm forward and 2.5mm lower. Its not finished but its about 60% done.
Then it was the wheel arches turn for a change, I cut them back for more of a Baja racer look and added inner arches front and back..
Obviously there is few places that need a little filler and a good sand before final primer, but its not too far off.
I’m working on something a bit different for the front tyres but its not perfect yet so I’ll keep that under wraps for now!?!?!?!
Please do comment on what you see, good or bad, I really do take on board what you, the experts, have to say. Ive only been back in to RC since January.
