He has them priced at $25 , I don't know what the postage rates are in Australia , or if you pay sales tax. I do know it will be faster to get them from him instead of waiting for them to ship from the States

The body is a Tamiya Ferrari F60 painted up by Brad at F1 Paintlabs. He even took it a bit further for me and applied the carbon fiber stickers on the inside, bottom portion of the body. It looks SICK!

I used his Petronas sticker sheet along with a few from the Ferrari sticker sheet to get it this far. Brads stickers went on like butter. It's the first time I've ever put stickers over silver and didn't get a shadow from the edge.

Soon this F1 will be fully operational

This is how it looked when I got started


And here's were I'm at


Always good to see justice done to my work. Looks good, looking forward to seeing it buttoned up

Thank you guys I do appreciate it. I never thought Iíd be inspiring. MUCHOS GRACIAS!

Hey RBF, Iíll let you know when Iím heading out for the maiden voyageÖIíll need a major helping of morale support, hopefully you can be there. Maybe I should get a gyro so I donít look so badÖor will that make me look even worseÖeither way Iím sure it will be embarrassing.

Hey BradÖI need to talk to you. I need moreÖÖ.silver vinyl. I can explainÖ..I swear it wasnít my fault. Hey I just want to say thanks again for the paint work and the decals. I couldnít have done it with a rattle canÖor without the stickers. Iíve had a blast working on it and Iíve already started the second car. (insert devilish laugh here).

Sorry Man.....RBF seemed to be unable to provide his usual amount of harassment so I thought I'd lend a hand.

Talking

Maybe.

See what you don't realize is, when I'm sitting on the ground playing cars by myself, I use a British accent for my own play by play. It's just like watching F1 on Sky.

No worries it's all good man! I can take a joke

Totally acceptable behavior as long as you are clothed while doing it. If you're not that is fine, I just don't want to hear about it.

Wanted to share my "new to me" F104X1. The previous owner filled up the X1 roller with goodies from RSector, Exotek, and TRF. Future plan is to change the body to the F1 W02 - for display. Tracktime is scheduled for this weekend. Wanted to post and share before I destroy it

Here it is in runner form:

I can totally relate.

Congrats on the acquisition! Do you know what front wing that is, or who makes it?

I replaced the front and rear wings with a 3Racing set (didn't want to ruin the original MP4-24 wing set that came w/i the car). Purchased it from TQRacing: F104-01

I did have to modify the front end to allow the front body post to work with the McLaren MP4-24 body.
