Well, had a little time up my sleeve but not so much room so our lounge got taken over for a while... It went from one wall to our fridge door, meaning we couldn't open the fridge without some inconvenience, to me that is! Had a lot of fun but now I have to clean up and wonder what to do with the life size Buggy Champ shell sitting in our front yard... The neighbors just walked by and I could hear them have a bit of a giggle, I don't think I can convince them now that I haven't an addiction to vintage Tamiya! Enjoy and Xmas greetings from myself and fiancee Kelly (Why would you not marry a girl who will get involved in these kind of RC escapades!)

Went for Box Art...

I was only kidding about my first comment. I would never go into these comps thinking I actually have a chance of winning. But holy moly, your entry is awesome!

BeetleLover

26-Nov-2009

Cheers, I multiplied everything by 10 and this is what you get! $10 US worth of tape and all the boxes I could get out of the supermarket on 3 trips! Was in the Lounge for about 10 days and I had intended to do the chassis but have a wedding to go to this weekend so I was flat out of time!

Toykid

26-Nov-2009

OK, so unless someone makes a SS life size body out of boxes I think it is safe to say it will take something completely crazy to beat this. Awesome job mate

BeetleLover

26-Nov-2009

You know I thought about doing an SS, but not for long, that would be insanely hard to do!

26-Nov-2009

Did the The Boys in Blue already fined you for not paying roadtax? If so, we should seriously compensate you in winning! Well done mate!

Bluefoot

26-Nov-2009

Crikey mate! Are we going to see an ultra-detailed 1/10 model of that driver?

BeetleLover

26-Nov-2009

Maybe! Quite a different Helmet style too, could be a rare gold collectors one!

LamboDave

26-Nov-2009

This adds a new meaning to 'BoxArt' !!! Great idea, and your scale looking ...

Crash Cramer

27-Nov-2009

James, you sure threw me for a couple of loops. You shaved and I can barely recognize you now. I also thought for half a minute that Kelly was holding the motor and then figured out it was the spray paint can. This is awesome and I hope you can preserve it and mount it on a pedastal outside a supermarket where we can pay 25 cents to ride in it just like here in the states. I think I would pay 1 USD for a ride in this. So, you and Kelly really are going to get hitched, great news.

Crash Cramer

27-Nov-2009

I now know where to send my steering wheel leftover from fixing my wife's car. I know the address, so don't be surprised if it shows up.

Origineelreclamebord

27-Nov-2009

Awesome!!! I'd contact Ikea if I were you and see if they could make some flat pack kits for Tamiya fans for this

mr.retreader

27-Nov-2009

That is cool! It`ll be hard to top this one.

oldsterolli

27-Nov-2009

Great ! Congrats !

berman

27-Nov-2009

Thats fantastic James! Cant you and Weta use the 1:1 BC in an up and coming? I too thought your fiancee was holding a 540 motor with a toilet roll pinion, but after reading Crashes comments, it is indeed a spray can. I wouldn't be suprised if you've already made a chassis out of tin foil You have my vote. Also congrats on your engagement!

Jetalone

Excellent! Very clever entry! I think the 'TS55 Cardboard Brown/Beige' should be just right! LOL! Very Original mate, you got my vote!



Cheers!
