Default First lexan paint job

New to Crawling and went with the SCX10 II kit - 12.3” wheelbase - and just finished painting the Proline ‘66 Chevy C10. Very pleased with how it turned out. Can’t wait to start painting another body!

Thanks. Btw, your Enduro threads are great. I’ve got both the Sendero & Trailwalker threads bookmarked to help me when I start on my Enduro builder’s kit this week.

Thank you. Watched a fair few Hemistorm videos to learn about the processes and what kit to use. Looking forward to spraying my Sendero body once I start building the kit. Might do something a little more interesting with the paint design on that one. I’ll post it up once it’s completed.

Hey thanks!

Thanks for checking out my builds! Hopefully you find some useful info. I try to keep an accurate and up-to-date log of mods and upgrades.

My Sendero has been parked for awhile, so nothing new at the moment. I'm hoping to get it out of the garage and onto the trail soon.

My Trailwalker is in the body shop right now getting a makeover!

Looking forward to seeing your Enduro build!

Thanks. I’m a fan now. Just got into crawling & this is my first build. Got an Enduro builder’s kit on the bench now, so that’ll be fun too.

This is your first?! Well done!

Simple and classic! Love it...

Are you going to "Sharpie" some of the body lines?

Thank you. Not a fan of “sharpie-ing” the body lines, so I’ll leave it as is
