even 2 years ago, who would have dreamed of opening a SRB box and just build it ?
thanks Mr tamiya for this re-re.
as many folks around, I won't wait to see if they are going to re-re the sand scorcher or not. if they do, I'll be the first to order 10 of them, but right now I wanted to build a runner !
as i'm not a huge fan of the buggy champ body, I ordered a blitzer shell from a guy on ebay that sells painted shells ...
what a crappy paintjob I received ! so I just picked an old MB shell I had, sanded it down and decided to work on it a bit more than the usual 15 minutes I spend on spraying a body. a week later my lungs are still burning and I know for sure I'm not a painter and I suck at filling holes but the result is not that bad.
I will be travelling to the western french coast in 2 weeks so many pictures to come as I will run this baby on the beach !
the license plates are from rogue elements, PIPOU is my 4months old son's nickname and 22 5 09 his date of birth.
many thanks to all those of you who made custom SS bodies, I would never had dared doing this if I hadn't seen the results you came to.
If you liked those pictures, you should see these...
I said it would be a runner and a runner it is !
