Received a Revell Shelby Cobra Daytona today, runs on battery test but the tyres look a little loose.

Car updates
Changed the rear axle for a MRRC rear axle that already has the crown gear fitted as I would hope these are the correct crown gears for the motor offset. I have also had to slightly shorten the front mounting post as the car was sitting slightly high. It still doesn't look quite right but any shorter and the front wheels will be to far inside the wheel arch. I have also done some final trimming to the interior plate so that it fits around the mounting posts and iit just needs painting now and a drivers head.

Car updates
Printed a set of my adjustable body mounting posts and after trimming to just under length I have epoxy glued them in place. Once the glue was set I then fitted the adjustable caps and screwed the chassis in to get the correct length and after fixing in place with super glue I then after removing the chassis set them with more epoxy glue. Have already trimmed the rear of the chassis I found that this had not been necessary as I had to trim the rear body valance anyway to clear the mounting post caps.

Car updates
As I'm using a MRRC chassis with this body I won't be using the normal interior tray which is also the chassis of the car as all the parts clip or screw on to it, I could cut these off but there is not a lot of detail anyway. The body kit also came with a vac formed interior that fits over the original tray and has quite abit of detail but this is also no use for this build as it's for a rally car and has the co-driver moulded in. As it happens I have a vac form interior tray from Pendle's that is just about right, the rear seat back might be a little bit to far forward but other than that I just need to find a suitable drivers head.

Car updates
Having taken some photos of the MRRC Lotus Cortina body I wasn't happy with the near,left, side Lotus badge so I have removed it and replaced it, glad I printed some extra ones.


Just need some good weather now so I can do the clearcoat on this and some other bodies.

Car updates
Having applied the decals to the MRRC Lotus Cortina yesterday I realised that I had forgot to do any Lotus badges so I printed some and also did some Stewart Tartan for Jackie Stewart's crash helmet on the BRM.

Finished the decals for the MRRC Lotus Cortina today by giving them three coats of clearcoat lacquer. Later in the day I applied them and used the yellow 'Team Lotus' and pin stripe from a Pattos Place set which gave me no end of problems. Done but not 100% happy with the pin stripe.

Printed the decals for the MRRC Lotus Cortina today. While doing theses I also printed the overall badges for Dan Gurney in the Weslake Eagle and a few extra tax discs. The badges for dan Gurney are so small that I'm not sure they will be that visable but at least they will be there.

As I wasn't completely happy with the paint on the MRRC Lotus Cortina I gave it a few more coats today.
