This competition theme is hands down my favourite so far: I sure like a custom paint job!

There are a few cars with alternative color schemes amongst my fleet, I even considered a group photo,but eventually decided to go with the most representative to me.

A few years ago I went on a mission, trying to turn what was perceived as Tamiya's ugly duckling into a real looker.
This custom paint job -enhanced greatly by the blingy hop ups- is what I came up with in the attempt to accomplish such mission.

Since I completed the car, and started running it everywhere like there's no tomorrow, I have received consistent positive feedback on its looks, so I like to think that the mission was accomplished :)

Somebody even pointed out how the TD4 in stock form has a very similar color scheme to my Manta Ray, and that Tamiya may or may not have taken some inspiration!! Ahah. While I strongly suspect it's not the case, I am still proud to say my Manta with her color scheme came out way before the TD4! :)

Thanks for looking, happy holidays everybody, and best wisher for a good 2024.
