Well here it is , finally finished after a long haul . I'm pleased with the result ,and it wouldn't have been possible without the help from various members . Cliff (Gecko-no-more) for the original project deal , the mighty Andy (Stickerbod) for the fabulous decals /panels / numbers etc , Richie (Biggus) for the bumpers , and to another member (whose name escapes me -sorry -give a nudge and I'll amend ) for the sponsor decals - a massive thanks to all

start of project

This is the first Box Art Mini Stock i have seen, and it looks great. Looks like the long haul paid off.

Very, very nice! My first RC car was one of these (although an earlier version), and we have a couple of newer version we use indoors now....

How did I miss this! Must be the best looking ministox i've ever seen... how shiney & deep is that metallic paint! First class job... brings back happy memories of trying to run these in the street, but as previously mentioned our cars were always beat up looking things!
