Holy Crap!

I have modified a Tamiya F350 and I have put in a Patrol style front suspension and I reckon that body would look an absolute treat!

Cheers

Would be easy to cut the flairs and put big rubber under it :toothmis:

It's about time! Finally!

DAMN! Just looked at that link though!

Total price for body on delivery is $115 +postage! That is bloody rich! Cheeky buggers.

I assume this is for a 1/10 truck?

As you say Sudso, to fit decent crawler rubber under it i am going to have to cut the crap out of the guards and it will loose most of the Patrol style as soon as i do that......hmmmm...$115! Not sure for that figure?

I will pay somebody silly amounts of money for that plastic wrapper/shell it comes in.

If you must know, I wish to make Nissan Patrol cakes for my birthday and I need the moulds. Happy to pay Direct Deposit.

I'm serious here.

Cheers,
Mick

Yep... The first 2 pics of the clear shell is what you get and you need to paint it in the colour scheme you like. You need to blank out the windows and sort out the two tone when you are doing it.

Normally you would paint it on the inside out so the plastic protects your paint.

They may or may not come carded with a "shrink wrap" cover over them that you might use but cant see that performing in the oven ?? LOL nice idea though

Bugger it, if there is a cardboard/shrinkwrap/plastic thing that still has the shape I'll pour bloody custard and araldite in the bastard, I will have my cakes.

Cheers,
Mick

Awesome.been looking for awhile. But your right u would need to cut the guards hard to be able to run it. Good as a scaler though and sht hot. I'm running a bodiless comp ruled 4vp kit.

Surely you lot only need buy the one, and then make a mould off it ? Plenty for all then and even Mike could have his cakes ! There must be someone on this Forum who does that sort of stuff.
