Nice work on the body improvement Tamiyadan, i think more people would love to have the KingCab on 1/10 scaler. Good job.

thanks for the great work .
printed the boomerang body last night , going to fire up my other 5 printers tonight (hopefully they don't need any parts its been awhile since I fired a few of them up lol) will print out the rest of the car bodies
so far the first one printed great with minimal support

found these cheapo cars at local computer store for 5$ each and they seem to be about the right size , hopefully the wheels work

Nice micro chassis you got there, very slender and might be a good candidate for Tamiya FOX build. I think you'll need to find Tamiya mini 4WD wheels and tire to match the outlook. Your 3d print boomerang looks shiny, is it on PETG filament?

Full collection of 1:32 scale micro 3D printed TAMIYA kit
Btw i've completed my 1:32 kit build for all 3x units of LT832 model (Losi Micro-T clone) with the last one being the BIGWIG kit added in and give it a test drive yesterday. Was fun and truly a racer on my DIY indoor track....i might get a fourth and build maybe an AVANTE or MADCAP. Here the gallery collections and build dump: https://www.supermotoxl.com/resource...-micro-t-clone

there are blackfoots as well.

there are also conversions for the buggies and cars.

a guy on ebay is also selling 3d printed conversion kits, these are different then the free one on thingiverse

I've been monitoring the mini clod at rcmart for a while, it never get to restock for a long time. Maybe no longer in production like the willies.
