    Was able to get the driver painted up for this thing. For something a little different, I decided to leave the area surrounding the driver clear to create a little more depth for the interior. From most angles it looks ok. I also trimmed up the interior a little so that it could be mounted a little further forward. Having the driver sitting back past the rear plane of the cockpit area of the cage seemed strange to me.

    So this one is "done enough" for now. I am still waiting on some decals for the side plates on the frame. They are taking their merry sweet time getting here from the UK. Eventually I will be doing a scale engine and fuel cell out back...eventually. The wrap is a combination of some auto wrap film and some inkjet vinyl graphics that I printed myself. It is meant to be a placeholder for now until I can design and have printed the wrap I want. The color pallete is the same but the graphic is meant to represent a highly pixelated version of the real imagery. I gave up on trying to keep this on 2.2" wheels and went with some JConcepts Tributes, JCT tires, and scale beadlocks.

    Presenting "Impending Doom II".

    Thanks, guys. Hopefully I will get to that before too long.

    In the mean time, those headers I printed earlier were test prints for something fun I had been working up a design for. I'm surprised nobody had tried this already, but I made up a set of backfire headers using Shapeways 3D printed parts and a lighting unit from MyTrickRC that has LED backfire capability.

    The final versions came out nice, and even without the backfire LEDs installed they make a great set of scale headers.








    Pictures only tell so much of the story, so I put together a short promotional video showing them in action and dubbed some sounds in for fun. There is lots of potential for fun vids using these things.
