Hi Gents,

i would like to show you my attempts to customize the Shelby in more modern way BigGrin
I initially planned to repaint the body and print new rims/tires with 3D but because of the overall poor fitment of the body parts i lost the focus a little bit...
Eventually the engine was modified, detailed and repainted also the suspension was lowered a little bit.
The issue with custom rims was solved by modifying the suspension and wheel hubs to accommodate Carsons RC 1/10 wheels. I also found i my spare parts box a set of RC Brakes and mounted them instead of the original ones.

I´m pretty happy with the final look Blushing despite the poor quality of DeAgostini parts. Please feel free to ask and comment Laugh

Best regards
Greg

Hey Greg,

If you want to email me your images, I'll resize them for you so that they appear automatically as the page loads. Shoot me a PM with your email address.

Stay well,

Mark
