    Thanks! Yeah, it's great when off cuts from other things line up perfectly!

    I've been working on the front bumper-

    First layered some styrene sheets:

    Glued together:

    Filed it all down nicely but it's ended up sticking out too far so I chopped it in 2! Woop, got a rear bumper for free!

    Chopped off the old bumper fixing points:

    Glued on a final front and top piece to make a nice smooth finish:

    Smoothed off and rounded the lower edge and it's lining up quite nicely:

    Gave the rear the same treatment with outer fascias on the stacked styrene and bent it a little to fit round the back snuggly:

    Then chopped off the og bumper mounts and tapped a couple of threads into the bumper from the inside, still needs a little tidying up but the fit is pretty good:

    Have also been filling unneeded holes:

    Next project is the bull bar, I could really do with a dry day to get some primer on too!

    NICE WORK!!! Glad to see that I'm not the only Tamiya NUT on here! I have been aching to try something with the Lunchbox Body. This is Fantastic!!!
    How does the Wheelbase line up with the M-Chassis? Oh WAIT! The Lowrider Pumpkin answered that one!!

    I've been considering something really Silly.... A Lunchie Body on a M05 FWD Chassis! I just find the Front Wheel Drive Tamiyas such a pleasure to drive. Although seeing your top heavy M06 get around, will be pure entertainment!!
