Guys,


The Hummer has bit the dust. The truck is running sweet - the picco gets better by the day... the body however is in trouble.





I think a Proline F350 Extended is in order......


Regards,


AUSRC

Nothing that SHOEGOO can't fix!!

I'm afraid ive tried that already but used fiberglass it took my dad like 40 minutes to get it right and it still broke in a few days. These bodies break and then replace and once in a while itll actually be repairable.


Sorry to see the hummer is gone, keep the body though itll remind you of how cool it looked


Id go for the Pro-Line Toyota Landcruiser. That is one sweet body.

Fibreglass??! Umm, you're not repairing a canoe..
FG resin wouldn't stick well to lexan & paint, it sticks only to itself & glass mesh.


ShoeGoo is a lot better at sticking to lexan & paint.





AUSRC:- On closer inspection... was that a crack that grew up from the wheelwell?


Could have been a overcut or a sharp corner leftover from when you first cut out the shell. These sharp corners will promote cracking in lexan - I try avoid all corners in cutting as much as possible. Easy to round them off with a reamer or Dremel.

Weaponx,


Yep, Big Joes on Velocity 6 40 Series Wheels - I luv em....


I got them from Tower - $29US a pair for the tyres, $19US a pair for the wheels (from memory).


They are also available from RCXShop in Hong Kong for about the same price. Have never seen them locally.


As for the Hummer - it will get patched.. that said, I havea Proline F150 that should be here later this week. What colour will I paint it........


Regards,


AUSRC
