    Thanks! Phew I hope so, pity the fool that disappoints BA!

    So we've had a break in the weather and the black's on. Really liking this metallic black, super shiny/bling.

    I can hear the sub-woofer cranking out disco beats already, along with a bumper sticker that says, "If this van is rockin' please don't come a knockin'!" "Pitty the fool" as Mr. T would say, who disturbs the occupants!

    Er... Got so close... then had a disaster with the red stripe.



    Have started fixing it, fingers crossed, waiting for paint to dry now...

    Who doesn’t love the A-Team. Great build so far, looking forward to seeing some wheels under it.

    Thanks Joe, yeah it was just me being silly and rushing- medium size boy really wanted to paint the red stripe so I got it all masked up and ready, by the time he was home from school it was nearly dark so we rushed it badly, had awful red paint runs under the tape. Then I panicked, tried to clean it off and the black came off too. Doh.

    So after a rest from it I've gone back to the beginning, been filling, priming, sanding, painting, etc.

    It's getting there now, gunmetal on top is nice and smooth and black is mostly there, red also mostly good now with good sharp lines in between:

    Here's a close up on the worst area, still needs more smoothing before a final black coat:

    Thanks Deric!

    Had a go at putting it on a chassis today, here's my M06:

    Shortened the chassis to smallest wheelbase which fits the lunchbox... and I have problems at both ends:

    Who put that gearbox there?!?

    And who made the bumper integral to the chassis?!?

    Hmm... hehe

    Of course, it would make a pretty cool rat rod on a 1/10 chassis with a big v8 out front...
