Hello,

I have more than ten ongoing body project's and will be updating this thread when i have time.

Here is one simple project.

I gave my beat up Evo a new paint. Nothing complicated, just removed rear spoiler and antenna holes. I prefer this shade of blue over the original.

Still needs some details and i need to glue back the ligth buckets etc.

Here is teaser from something you may find intresting. It's a Skynet Soarer with paint removed and waiting for new color. Right now i'm thinking of painting it metallic brown.

I have two MA-015 drift cars with same specs. I'm running a 1.44 CS Setup on both cars. Wheels used on the Soarer pics are original Kyosho wheels with 2mm alloy lip added to them.

Gorgeous stance on both cars. You're tempting me to open up one of my Autoscales to do the same... :)

Thanks for the comments. Evo will be finished as soon as i receive my order containing few tamiya paints. Yesterday i picked up a color for the Soarer. It's going to be Toyota metallic Brown used in the 80's. I have 8 of these Soarer bodies. My plan is to keep 2 or 3 boxed and customize the rest. I have few paint ideas in my head and will keep this thread updated whenever i have time.

Both are used just to decorate my drift track.

I had some Mercedes pink paint left from an old project so i decided to make a drift car that doesn't get mixed with other cars. :)

So far i have finished the front and rear bumpers. Sideskirts and body still need a second wetcoat and polishing.

Mazda is finally painted. Took alot of time because of the 3 colors. Still need to add some details and maybe put some drift related stickers?

Drift Mazda is done. I placed few stickers and thats was it. I didn't want to go crazy with the details because it's a drifter and going to get driven hard.

FIN, I must ask! how did you remove the paint off the soarer so cleanly (even if its a car with almost no detail to begin with)?!

great variety! i want to see more :)

I used MARINOL 100. it's used as fuel in camping stoves. It removes paint very easily and is completely safe to plastic. It's basically methano, with some propan. I have no idea if there is similar product available outside Finland?

Sorry for the lack of updates. Summer is busy time.
