Hi,
"One day she will be mine, oh yes, one day she will be mine...", it's done!

This body is on my "Wish List" for a long time but I doubt that Kyosho makes it... (d**n licenses ...), but do not despair ...

So, "do it yourself" ...

This is my latest creation, a "free" interpretation of the Silk Cut Jaguar XJR that ran at Le Mans in late 80, early 90.
I have used a Mazda 787 whitebody and paint/decals are a mix of different versions of the XJR (8/9/10/11 ...)

A great job too, perhaps he has already sent to you his pics.
I'm sure he would be happy to see his F1 on your blog.

Bye.

... what offsets of Atomic S6 you have under the shell?

I have +1 for front with Lm tires and for rear +1,5 (mm motor mount) with a few shims to be as close as possible to standard 787 offset (0 with lm motor mount).
