Really nice work Your decals look great (great job with the painted gold lines aswell) and your carbon decals finish it off nicely.

If you don't have clean bearings, good transmission and a perfect car, trust me when I say this...someone else does.

BP, Tamiya should hire you to make display models for their ads.

Thanks Dave, that is a high complement coming from a master modeler.

NICE job BP! That is flawless.

Now my question, did anyone ever come out with ride height adapters for the associated rear end that will hold the metric 10x6 rear axle bearings? I have a car, my RC Indycars Spitfire, I'd like to adapt so I can run rubber tires on it.

Hey BP, CONGRATS on your concours win! Your car looked amazing with excellent detail. This was a well deserved pick.

Thank you so much for these. I'll try to do them justice for sure. If anyone is wondering about the quality of these stickers from F1 Paintlab, let me assure you these are NICE. While I haven't had the chance to apply them on anything I've checked them out and. The quality of the vinyl is perfect, flexible with good stick and these don't look like they'll flake apart.

I've used a few sticker sheets in the past, Tamiya and others, some good, some bad. I would put these just below Tamiya's in quality then list the rest. This should make the next few project a lot of fun.





Brad, thanks for taking the time to do these right. I can't wait to see what else you come up with to add to your product line.

PS I forgot to get that chassis...

You need the HPI axle set to run Tamiya tires. It is standard 1/4 pan car size. Note, this is an optional part, not the axle that comes with the kit.

I love the tire stickers... think about offering those separately... in all of the colors... red, blue, white, yellow, etc.... ad with the stripe

I would like to know if a 17.5 brushless with a 3.7V 1 cell lipo would work well in an F104? It works very well in my 1/10 pan car; a nice balance of speed and control. Not too fast that it is too hard to control; but still quite fast.

Seems like it would be a good combo for an F1 car; and the 1 cell lipo should fit just fine. In fact the 1 cell should allow for more room for the electrics.

Any thoughts?

By the way, BP Shadow; I absolutely LOVE your Lotus Renault body!! My question is: Does your decal sheet include the gold striping? I don't see it in the picture of the decal set.
