My shop finally got my 15th Anniversary. This is the only one my shop will be getting. They ordered 2 and only got 1. Since I ordered mine first, this one is mine.

Any tips on building it? I have built a F103RM recently. Is there anything different with the 15th? What extras will I need to build it?

Also, what bodies are you guys mounting on your 15's?

Thanks guys!

This car will NOT be driven. I want a nice after market body, wing, spoiler and diffuser for it. Any suggestions?

D drive in Japan has a ton of aftermarket stuff. Both older and modern styles. I have bought from them several times, they are very good, very reliable.

Just finished building my F103 15th Anniversary edition. The build went great. The fit and finish of everything is excellent and the kit screws are probably THE best kit screws I've ever seen in all my years of kit building. If they were only TRF blue...

Anyway, here are some pics.

Yup, I'll have it out there at Fastlane Sunday.

Also...for anyone who saw my post when I first put the pics up...yes, that top pic is different. I had to retake the picture after I jacked a couple blue screws from my IFS-R for the F103. Just until I can get the full screw kit from rcchamp. There just wasn't enough blue on there...

I am looking forward to running the F1 car this weekend, I think I am going to bend my rule about running more then one class and run my mini or the TA05 this weekend as well. I was going to run the mini but the 05 was just so nice over my old tc3 it was not even funny....what to do....what to do.

I do know one thing for sure, my F1 car is going to be the ugly duckling out there...I need to get myself a new body.
