Good afternoon everyone!
Now this one I am really proud of! Chassis was won on ebay a while ago from a TC member whose name I can't remember. It's a very beautiful TA02 full of frp and alloy parts. I thought I might upgrade it to carbon, but in the end I really love the way it looks like that. Upon receiving it, I just gave it a good clean, put some red alloy hardware and I had to fix the rear shock mounts (up and down) as it had too much play.
Now, when I say I'm proud of this model, let me explain myself: every time I finish a shell, the first impression I get is deception, as the color isn't the one I wanted, or there is a paint leak or whatever...Then I might end up liking it, or rather getting used to it. But then I look at the pictures I took of the model (all my cars are stocked at my parent's house, miles and miles away from where I live), and then I see every little defects, everything that needs to be changed etc...
But with this ABC Hobby 240Z shell, I get the feeling that for the first time, I have done things right. I loved the one from Wyoming which is box-art if I may say, but I wanted to do something different from the rally version, while giving it an old school racing/street look. I've stared at the blank shell for 2/3 months before finally getting the inspiration from a picture found on the web.
And now here it is: I might add an exhaust someday, but I think it looks real good as it is!
Edit: the car is now equipped with HPI 33474 and 33475 vintage wheels and also has brand new Tamiya carbon upper and lower deck instead of FRP.
