Ok inspired by some ongoing projects posted lately i feel i have to share a little progress on a rough rider project.
I still need to paint the rollcage and decide if i want more stickers on the body.
Atm the body sits on a super champ chassis, eventually it will be fittet a srb chassis.
hope you enjoy..thanks for looking.

Great work love the body details. That bleu is always great to look at, great alu wheels too.

The body is looking great. I love the way the front end wraps down farther onto the chassis. Is that a mod you did to it? Or are my eyes playing tricks on me. And behind the front tires looks curved. Please tell me I'm not going crazy!

thanks for the comments.
yes mark the nose and sidepods are modified. i also added 3 mm styrensheet to the upper surface of the front body and sanded it down to give a more soft aerodynamic look.
front rear and outer surface on the sidepods are all curved and upper surface given about 5 deg angle .
pretty happy with the outcome as i needed to come up with a design that would still fit over the srb radiobox and be a small as possible.

thanks again.
yes the changes are subtle and i also think the refinement was needed. actually didnt take that much time to do,
so I think i will make a new rr body with sidepods just like on the box..
