View Full Version : Sand Scorcher Dash Kits!

Up this time, our latest Limited Edition item: A Scale Dash Kit for the Tamiya Sand Scorcher/Beetle!

Everyone wants special bits to set their Scorcher apart, and it's getting tough- Most parts are commonly available & everyone has 'em. Here's something no one has offered yet, and it's a Godsend for the scale builder!

These are 'multimedia' kits, utilizing 6061 Aluminum, Polystyrene, and guages printed with perfect clarity on transparency: These are truly stunning in person, crisp detail, engraving, 100% scale! The metal protrudes through the Styrene, giving you 3D, REAL metal trim just like the 1:1 Beetle, and it looks it (Not like chrome sticker.) Coupled with flawless engraving, the efect is fantastic, but I don't stop there: The clear guages/radio can be backlit by simply inserting your LED, and these JUMP out instead of just sitting there! The light reflects off the white Styrene to give great definition- Harsh 'Straight' light from the back is a bit too harsh (See top photo,) so indirect light is used (Pic below) and works PERFECTLY: Plus, with the curved light reflector, only 1 LED is needed. You can use a red or blue LED to tint the guages also! The detail is easily on par with Tamiya's molding. Assembly is simple, and in no time your Scorcher will be much more realistic. Only $34.95 ea., plus $2.99 shipping in US, $3.99 Int'l. for any number of units (except Italy, Spain, and Turkey- Please Email for details.)

Dash kits planned for Tamiya Jeep Wrangler & New Hilux, amongst others: Stay tuned!

Notes: Prototype shown, production units will be even nicer, as usual. Plastic welder and some very basic ability required: These are no prob for 1st timers though, probably the simplest kit yet! Instructions included, LED not included but definitely recommended for best appearance. Forgive the photos. Installation can be permanent or semi-permanent w/servo tape or Shoe Goo.

Remember, these, like all of our offerings, are ONLY available for a SHORT TIME to deposit paying customers!
