Have always fancied the idea of owning Vanessa's Lunchbox but knew that she was always more for silly fun and shelf life than for serious use. Therefore, several more 'serious' kits later I finally felt justified in making some space for a purely emotional purchase.
The build was pretty simple but I made a couple of tweaks as follows:-
Ansmann 75mm oil filled dampers (front)
Ansmann 85mm oil filled dampers (rear)
Ball race set
Reversed wheely bar
540 'ballast' motor in nose
I'm quite pleased with the finish of the custom paint job, especially as it's only a 'rattle can' job. The inspiration is the A-Team van crossed with Rothmans livery.
Pretty much all of the supplied stickers had to be junked as they didn't match the paint scheme, so instead I used a spare sticker set from the Team Arai Subaru WRX that I had gathering dust.
I've given the car it's first quick run and I'm pleased with the modifications turning it into a fun little basher. The only thing left to do is to tidy up the black trim paint around the windows and possibly apply the 'third damper' fix for the rear axle, although, thus far the handling doesn't seem to justify it.
