WIP: HPI Scion FRS

Postby mikep415 » Mon Jul 30, 2012 3:40 pm

s13 is on hold until i get some stuff in, so i thought i'd start this thread. Got a few of these sent to me 2 month ago and finally decided to do something with it. So far this body is pretty nice and detailed compared to other HPI bodies. Only thing i sort of dont like is the separate rear bumpers but its no problem. I also thought this body was gonna be 190mm but its actually 200mm.

Decided on pearl white since my friend just picked up a white one. He asked if i would do pearl white and fix it up so he can get an idea on what route he wants to go with it.

started last night 07/30/2012 so its 40% finished. Let me know what you think so far.

Is that a carbon sheet or just paint?
Looks good so far. COuld you also tell me, where did you get the body? I thought it will not be widely available?

different wheels. Bumper added and rear buckets but still needs lots of work. The rear bumper is only taped on for now until i finish the rear buckets. Front buckets will be worked on this weekend as well.

to do list:
-roll cage
-front/rear buckets
-exhaust
-intercooler
-side mirrors/rear view mirror
-wipers
-door handles/gas tank outlined in line tape
-little detail here n there

85% finished
