Paint scheme is great. Is that box art? I'm not familiar with the kit but the whole build has echoes of the Schumacher Cat XLs Masami.

After years and years Egress remains the top superior design for 4WD off road buggies.

@GoFast80 no this is not box art.

I have to whisper this but the Egress, made up to Box Art at least, is not my favourite aesthetic So, I asked the kids what colour scheme they would go for and my son loves the Cat XLS so we took that as starting inspiration!

Thanks everyone else for the kind comments. When coming back to Tamiya RC I wanted the Egress as it was the pinnacle at the time of cars I couldn't afford! But, I wasn't 100% sure about the look of the car but having built it I've fallen in love and it's so much fun to drive.

@GeeWings congrats, your Egress is gorgeous with that Cat XLS inspired colour scheme. Most likely the best looking Egress I've ever seen! ...and just like you, I also dare whispering that I find the original box art uninspiring at the least. It's incredible the miracles a different colour scheme can do

That's a very high quality level for your first build! Stance is spot on. Enjoy your next builds - there will be next builds you know - once you get started with these there's no way back

Thanks Ferruz, kind words but you might be being too generous!

Tamiyastef, yes, there have already been other builds. I’m now officially addicted

Great result and color scheme....I admire you for going non-box art. Not sure I'll be able to convince myself to do the same thing with my NIB re-re.

Love this. The CAT colour scheme works brilliantly on it.

@JerseyRC I just don't love the box art version, especially the decal windows. But I do have a spare shell so might well do something closer to box-art at some stage...
