January 2017 - Showroom update:
Status: New Model (refurbishment of previous model)
Name: Body-shop Brat
Body: Subaru Brat (re-release) hard-body.
Built in Dec 2016/Jan 2017, this is technically a refurbishment of my first Tamiya: a TL-01 chassis Subaru Impreza that was re-bodied with an F150 shell and wheels/tyres from 2008.
The re-re Brat body was left over from a NIB kit I bought primarily for the chassis (see the Fro-Sco in my showroom), with customised rear wheel-arches to fit on the 257mm length wheelbase of the TL-01 chassis.
I have also incorporated working lights front and rear by customising the original moulded lamps to accept LED housings.
The TL-01 chassis is complete stock, other than slightly longer shock springs to improve the ground clearance.
The driver 'Crazy Kelly' is a combination of the head from a Kelly Osbourne figurine, the helmet from a Sand Scorcher, and the Brat driver body.
