This is my 2nd Lunchbox & the 1st was original release which is long gone. I bought this kit on 2nd of April 2019. Its been completed today, the 17th of June 2019.

I had lots of thoughts what to do and this box has finished up a long way from stock. Heres a list of whats been done:

Full set of quality sealed bearings
TBLM02S 10.5T motor
TFU01 fan
18T pinion
AMPRO diff lock, reinforced front suspension & transmission brace
Wild Willy 2 chrome rear wheels
Frog alu hex adapters
Tire foam inserts
2xCVA 50520

Really pleased with how the paint turned out. Had lots of ideas but its a van so I kept it simple. As I had half a can of PS19 I masked under the lightning bolt and left the top unpainted. I think it looks quite good. An afterthought I had was to paint a red band above the yellow, around the back, joining the decals up.

Had a little test run and the steering is going to take some tuning & the front springs got to be a lot stiffer.

Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Thanks JEEKELEMENTAL! The white & yellow look better than expected, not a top paint job but I’m learning as I go, I didn’t anticipate paint creeping up the panel lines under the masking & my hand isn’t as steady as I thought for the freehand on the windows but over all I’m happy with the finished job.

Always wanted one of these as a kid. Great colour choice. Looks damn good plain yellow as well though
