Competition entry - the FAV Shark Mouth returns with a new look! I had to get this picture in the comp, as I have been experimenting with a small DIY camera rig on this model. Its a technique normally used on 1:1 cars, I'll post the how-to in a jiffy..... I hope you enjoy the results, and thanks for looking!

FAV - Street trim. Hanky over the breathing gear New face with gold tooth detail... What lies under the yellow...My work too

That is absolutely superb, it's going to be hard to beat this.

Wow thanks again guys, I see that making 'moving' images could be a popular passtime....
Berman - the fronts are good old Smoothies, stretched over a 1.7' rim. This gives them a slightly squarer shape.
Normally this car has The Hornet type knobblies stretched over the rear 1.7' rim too, but for tarmac use the SandBlasters go much better of course.
PS.. I'm working on a tutorial for the camera rig, on this car particularly its a doddle to fit- just lots of tweaking and playing to get the shot you want!!! Don't worry, i'll be sure to share my secrets

I've read the how-to. Just brilliant work, we were sure you had radio gear in and were using go-pro camera. This is a winner for me.

Thanks fellas, I can't wait for this 'contraversial' model to arrive. It is soooooo getting built!
I never had a hornet

mongoose1983

14-Apr-2013

The good thing about the ''controversial'' Hornet is the fact that it comes with an extra set of black rubber tires so you can always customize your way to a superb looking buggy. And seeing what you've done with a FAV, I would bet you'll come up with one awesome Hornet buggy. Can't wait to see your work on that chassis! Congrats again.

Pintopower

15-Apr-2013

The minute I saw this image I said to myself 'I dont have a chance'. Take some pix of your hornet when you build it. I would love to see how you show that baby off!

bdamit

18-Apr-2013

No way, Pintopower, I really went for your photo, and laughed o. l. at the 'jerk' comment.
Thanks a lot!
