Default Project Rotary

So here's a semi mixed project. It's a body mount conversion from another 1/28th RC, however the detail on the shell isn't up to standard. So I'm going to be creating some components and body work from scratch such as headlight and taillight buckets. Also bodywork will be converting this into the newest 2010 version of the RX. Here are some pics...


Target Goal:






Photos are of MazdaSpeed's Body kit


Starting Line:







01/03/2010:





04/11/2014:

I hear it's always better to be late, than to never appear at all.




















That's all for Today...

umm, no, the previous owner of this shell was gonna make a Widebody kit/custom kit onto it, but gave up at the start, so I got the shell with putty on it, thus why i sanded it all down.

It's been a really long time, I'll say I was happy to see your tC finished and that 370Z looks like it came like that straight from the mold. You're skills are very good taiwanesekid05

Keep an eye out, i have a lot on the bench that I'm working on:

so do it FinalGear!

My Hiatus lasted way too long and the community is mostly dead. It's still so relaxing and revitalizing to pull all of these shells and projects out from hiding... I even ordered a 3D printer to help me out with some mods for old and new xmods.
