Redcat announces the release of free scale accessories.

Redcat Racing has designed and released free miniature 1/10 scale versions of the popular Gen7 Pro Green, Gen8 Blue, Gen8 Orange, and Gen8 PACK product packaging boxes, just like the ones the 1/10 scale vehicles arrive in. These free product boxes can be downloaded at no cost from http://www.redcatracing.com/scalegarage, and printed from a typical home printer.

A scale shipping box is also available for download. The shipping box will hold four of the miniature product boxes neatly inside. Print off as many boxes as you like and have fun placing them on or around, your scale crawlers.

As if this wasn’t already cool enough, Redcat added even more free downloadable stuff, like a customizable printable garage. This is a great idea for those who would like to display their radio control vehicles in a realistic scale diorama, while they aren’t out getting them dirty. There are several interior and exterior walls to choose from, allowing many different garage configurations. Scale enthusiasts can build a custom garage to reflect the personality of their vehicle.  While these garage walls can be printed to any scale, it’s recommended to print each wall at its intended 30”x16” size. This will give the best results and scale look desired. If a large enough printer isn’t available, most office supply stores or custom print shops offer low cost print solutions.

About Author

I built my 1st real RC vehicle in 1986 and have enjoyed this hobby ever since. I like all RCs, cars, trucks, boats, planes, helis, etc. I think every RC vehicle has its place, whether it be toy grade or hobby grade. They’re all fun to me, but the best part about this hobby is the people I’ve met and friendships I’ve made. But hey, enough about me. Share your background in the comment section of this article.
