The car is nearing completion now, the shell is missing wipers & windscreen. The decals have been applied (from Jez Thain @ screenprintdigital). I used a combination of Sand Scorcher style & his new 'Baja' style decals to great effect. The chassis is slightly hopped up with aluminium shocks, a racing motor (waiting to be fitted) and the car will also be fully ball-raced!





Bit of a racer this one The decals compliment the paintwork well Front sits lower than rear for a mean racer look All the legs 'number 11' My reference to tamiyaclub ;0) Joel 'Magic' Johnson racing motor & ball bearings

If you liked those pictures, you should see these...
Pink or Brown ??? (Part 5 / Finished / SOLD)

The Driver inside must be the 'Only Gay in the Village' Unless you are planning on remodelling it into a woman that is lol

Hey, don't you know, pink is in fashion for men now (we're not in the 90's anymore, anything goes nowadays)

Eh it was the 80's that pink was in fashion for men I thought.

I like the purple frame, but the shell's another thing entirely. I presume yoghurt pink *isn't* part of Tamiya's new TS range then ?

It was the 80's pink was in, then it skipped a decade and came back in the year 2000, lol! Don't you keep up with the times??? @ Blacque Jaque, the main pink on the shell is Sugar Candy Pink, from a Mercedes Smart car actually!

Mecerdes Smart car pink. Ah so its a Hairdresser's monster beetle. As for keeping up with the times, it a bit like a clock that's broken, it's right twice a day so, every other decade I'm fine lol.

Cheers Liam, I've said this before & I'll say it again, box-art is boring! Everyone should let their imagination run riot when building/restoring an R/C car, why have a Italian Red Monster Beetle like ten million other people???

Well said Connor...why have another red MB? I'm not gay nor am I into fashion or watching current trends but I simply think PINK looks good on RC's. My favorite color for RC's is probably ARMY GREEN, so what does that say? Absolutely nothing except that they're both great colors. I started the PINK SIG because I always get a kick out of the controversy that ensues once someone posts their PINK ride. Anyways...well done here, I can't wait to see th final deal!

Wow.. This is a PINK Monster... The picture of the motor bring back memories... My next project is gonna be called 'Mon-PINK-ster Beetle' for the PINK SIG

Connor

Yeah, I like the way this is turning out so going to do similar PINK maybe a more reddy/purply/pink in the near future... with lighter coloured racing stripes!

I just seen a PINK MB on eBay for sale. Don't let it get away, lol.

I have seen it, it's from America isn't it! The only bad thing is the shipping cost, delivery time & customs charge
