the General

Post by doorslammerfan on Tue 30 May 2017, 8:13 pm

built for a three group facebook build off, With a stuffed right arm and hand that still isnt right (pins and needles along with only partial feeling in the thumb ) its taken me most of the allocated two months to get it done, In saying that not knowing I was going to have so many issues health wise maybe trying for working pedals and butterflies and 5 times the amount of detail I usually put in wasnt the wisest of choices lmao. Can do a wip album to if anyone want to see it.

Anyways, Revell 69 charger body wedged , front wheels are Polar lights fc spares, front tires are top sportsman, rear wheels dont know (parts bin) everything else apart from the Dirt Modeller 4 link) is scratch built out of brass, solder or plastic with a lot of resin (engine, box, rear tires , fuel cell all mine) .







and here's where that bastard Murphy kicked me in the balls, after 3 hundred odd mockups throughout the build whn everything is assembled for the last time, when all glue has dried the motor has a fecking lean to it
