    Hi there nerds!

    I just bought a new bright porsche 1/6 scale that I think look pretty nice. The electronics are total crap but i noticed that is has pretty much the same wheelbase as my two ofna lx2 buggys. I just converted one of them to electric and plan to do the same with the other. I'm gonna keep the unfinished one as a buggy (for a later project) but the one i already converted I thought might be a good on-road car, maybe a drifter.

    So I started with the build/modification of the body.

    Let me know what you think and if you have any tips they're very welcome. This will be first real scale build I ever do!

    A small update. In hope to cure my hangover (me and my friend charlie just really went berserk last night) I painted the dashboard. it turned out okay, it is after all handmade so it's not perfect.

    cheers nerds!

    Late update!

    Got the idea of installing a sound system to give it some more real feeling. Had an old bluetooth speaker that I just dissasembled and re-used. looks kinda cool and sounds awesome!

    Just had to put the whole thing together to see what is left to do and just get an Idea of what it will look like when it's finished.

    Did the interior come with the body? The fenders turned out great, what material did you use?

    yeah the whole car came as an rtr.
    thank you! I use clay that becomes rock hard in 24h. I'll proably cover it with a thin plastic to get a more smooth surface as I discovered that it's nearly impossible to get it as smooth as the rest of the car.

    Hi and what's up nerds!
    It has been quite for some time in the thread, sry 'bout that!
    The reason is that I decided to make some changes to the bodywork and also I've been busy with my new job and other projects.

    SO instead of going with clay for the fenders, I drew them in autocad to be printed later on.

    I sent the stl files to my friend and Business partner Kenneth and he did an awesome job with the printing. It's really an art to get good quality prints and I am blessed with this man!

    This is as far as this update goes. Ill probobly get them ready and on the body this week. The question is what color I should go with, black or the same as the rest of the body?

    cheers

    I believe it’s the hosting site the problem.
