    A other friend came to me and told me he had bought him self a second hand King Hauler .
    It was a verry old truck and the paint was terreble , so i told him to clean every part and then bring it to me .
    And he did so .................

    Then it was time to put on some colour :

    Then itold him the trailer was also ugly because it was red and would nat match with the truck .

    I agree but it's his truck .................

    The son of a friend of mine was driving a Tamiya CC01 with the Toyota FJ40 body of his dad and he asked me if i had some thing lying around in my workshop so the CC01 would be more his car . He was lucky i had a Black Foot body lying around for a long while so i took his car and made it some new looks .
    It looked nice but the wheel base did not match :
    [​IMG]

    So i changed it :
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And changed the fenders :

    New paint job :

    The car was not damaged ..................

    you do good work, if I hadn't seen the pics of the blackfoot being changed I wouldn't have known it had been, at best I can get a decent 10 foot paintjob, but i figure its going to be beat up anyway so I don't really try to do a really nice job.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Then his son Jimmy bought him self a Axila scx10 Jeep Rubicon and asked me if he could get the sme paintjob on his Rubicon as the Kamaz of his dad .
    So i started painting .....................................

    First from the outside painted with lexan paint from Tamiya so it would go as a primer and i can paint with any paint i want without having problems :
    [​IMG]

    Then started airbrushing with Revell email paint :

    starkeyaquaman asked me if i could build a scale body for his Axial scx10 .
    He wanted a '41 Dodge and i had toi think about it but adter some picture i said it's okay i going to build the Dodge .
    So first i started to build a chassis .
    On the shelf there was a old 6x6 Axial scx10 chassis , so i rebuilded that one to a original dingo chassis .
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The body will be mounted on the original battery place :
    [​IMG]

    This is my picture board :
    [​IMG]

    And the start , first i made a place where the battery fits :
    [​IMG]

    The front fenders have a curve , so bended them the way i want them to be and fixed them with duke tape :
    [​IMG]
    Then started to bring a pan of water to almost boiling point :
    [​IMG]
    Then laid the fenders in the water , when you take them out and let them cole of the curve is in the fenders :
    [​IMG]
    Made some triangles to mount the fenders to :
