I've had this kit for a while but only just got around to building it. This is going to be a runner. For that reason I decided to do my own decal scheme rather than the usual box art, as I don't reckon the box art scheme would last that long as there's so many! I also chose to fit some LED's for running on these shorter days.
Do any of you guys, despite having many successful builds under your belt, ever get one that just seems to fight you the whole way?! This was the one that did for me. Maybe I got a 'Friday afternoon' kit!!
Having said that, the kit quality is still excellent though, and I can tell from the quick shakedown today that it's going to be an awesome fun car to run.

...and yes, before anyone points it out, I did screw up and put the decals on the chassis sides too high so they're partially obscured! Haha

Going to be a great runner and looks great! Hopefully the running will be more fun then the build? Haha some times kits can fight back at you!!

Many moons ago I had the same experience building the Rocky together with my nephew. It seemed not one screw fitted correctly and nothing went smooth or effortless. We got it running in the end but I hated that car for a long while, still not a fan of the Rocky

Thanks mate. Haha yeah, maybe I've just been lucky up to now! The noise from the rear diff is niggling me though. It comes pre-assembled from the factory, but I'm wishing I'd stripped it first, as it sounds like there's no grease in it!! An easy check, but not as easy as if I'd done it at stage 1 of the build! Going to be a fun runner though!

Thanks Tamiyastef. Glad to hear it's not just me!! It definitely takes the shine off, but it's going to be a great car to run. Gonna check the rear diff then take her out properly.

That's a great looking car. Worth all the fighting you did with it.
