It has been a couple of weeks so I wanted to show some progress. More detailed info in my build thread in the forum.



After some great feedback from everyone on TC, I decided to go realistic but still retain a little racing spirit. Thanks to James aka Beetle lover for one of his super cool Albert heads. This mock up shows you what I am going for.


The Harness is the same as I have used on my Baja Bronco in my showroom. They have photo etched metal parts and once you see these in person you will never want anything else in your scale builds - Thanks to Matthias aka Kokuzu for putting me onto those and he has also been helping get the details of the body perfected.


This is really just a teaser for the custom sculpt I have coming next week. I hope you will all be as excited as I am to see it.


Comments always welcome.

This looks awesome and has been a fun build to watch. What 3d printer are you using? I haven't seen one produce anything that smooth. Top work as always
