WIP..yokomo ER34 by mikep415

Postby mikep415 » Tue Oct 23, 2012 11:43 am

since i am STILL waiting on a few things to arrive for the s13, I decided to start another project.

Been wanting this body for quite sometime and finally picked it up from a buddy on this forum, thanks Omar!

I wanted to do a color i've never done nor really seen anyone with. Decided to mix my own color to get a root beer/bronze kind of color. Combined 4 different colors and came up with this:
Image

the start.
Image

finally got all the cutouts done and painted a few coats
Image
Image

i'll update tonight with a cf roof and painted trim. Let me know what you think so far. More progress to come.

not much of an update but painted the window trim on the ER34 and added LED.

still to do:
-mirrors
-body lines
-paint headlight housing
-exhaust
-cage
-interior set or dash(maybe)
-and more.

Also picked up a 1st gen Scion Xb body. true 1/10 scale at that.

also, finished update on the ETS s13 soon. Been sick and slightly injured so progress has been slow.

@Josh: thanks bro! i'll be hitting you up soon! lol

@awdracer: its just tamiya smoke(you can also use pactra tint), carpet tape, then backed with black. I notmally add electrical tape right after the black dries to prevent the black on the tape from getting scratched.
