Default 410 Pro build

As itís my first ever Vanquish Product Iím leaving the chassis stock. It all seems pretty good to me. I donít have a Lexan body, Iíve never done one before so this will be more about customising / painting the stock body but Iíll throw up a few shots I took of the chassis.

Every part of this was an absolute pleasure to build but especially the axles.


Low!


Mostly complete


A few close ups.

Showing the route the front driveshaft takes




I was a bit disappointed the body had the mounting holes already cut, Iím sure Iíd read somewhere they hadnít cut them so Iíve set about a way to cover them.
Very this polycarbonate sheet glued together to look like plates of steel


An opt technique for faux rivets is using white glue


Just a dirty wash

You know me and my rust lol

A bit more weathering and were done

Itíll take a while this one......

Hey, the rust is made using iron filings, acid, peroxide and salt. I did a how to here

Dirty wash is just grey acrylic paint watered down and left to dry.

Well, I got carried away and just could not put this project down

Weathered the seats using some salt just to make them look a bit cruddy.


It was late, I was going to go brown but then I found a can of grey. Wasnít sure but it works.


Rusting the bed, or is that ****ing the bed? Anywhoo... painted the back with black and then flat clear over the top to dull it down. Same process of iron filings, acid, peroxide and salt to express rust it up a bit.


And this is where I started to snowball, I donít like bodypins but theyíre hugely convenient and quick so made a magnetic fuel cell cover from styrene. Painted silver and then translucent red over the top and a wash using grey acrylic watered down. An axial yeti spare fuel cell top came in handy! I had all sorts of things on the go and a dead phone battery (camera) so the pictures sort of didnít happen unfortunately. Wish I had of taken more but none of it is rocket science

Interior turned out great! Love the idea of using the fuel cell to hide the body clips.
