Well it’s taken long enough, over 2 years.
But here is my Baja Scorcher; lots of you have followed my build and modificcations, thanks for all comments left so far. My Tamiya memories from the 80’s have always been strong but I only really got back into it when I found TamiyaClub.com, purely by accident.
Then Mr Tamiya re-re’s the Scorcher and there was no stopping me.
Without the friends and help I’ve gained from the club I’d never have enjoyed this build as much as I have, so THANK YOU to you ALL.
I know I’m going to forget some of you so I’ll apologise now if I do ‘sorry’ but these members really have helped me through to the finish: Real Wild One, Beetlelover, stickerbod, sturge, ShayD, Sayroll, SCORCHER KID, Rad22Rad, RA1028, j-man, gr2fltp, happy ginger71, BiggusDitchus, Basket Case, IBIFTKH, sibbet, singleseven, Wandy, steerfromtherear, Meakz1973 and many many more
I was hoping to get this to the beach for a nice set of pictures, would I have run it ?, possibly, I’m not sure. If the weather brightens up soon I might go and give it a try, but its at least an hours drive to a good bit of sand.
I’ve learnt so much through the mods on this car, especially how much I like styrene and the smell of burning rubber (some of you will know why).
The rear shelf and dummy tool box is the latest addition and a superb engine at the rear from j-man with a few mods of my own. I spent hours on that roof scoop and trying to make look great but subtle.
I could have kept on adding and adding to this project, there are so many ideas I still have, but I’ve had to stop now so I can concentrate on a new idea I’ve had for the last 8 months.
I hope your all think the wait was worth it, all comments welcome, good or bad.
If you liked those pictures, you should see these...
