Tijuana Taxi rescue
Posted 07 March 2007 - 12:51 AM
I´d like to show you some pics of my Tijuana Taxi rescue.
It was bought off Ebay, and looked like this:
I Started to take it apart, and this was the result
It was a gluebomb....
A TRUE gluebomb
Lots of glue, broken, and missing pieces
Here I started scratchbuilding the missing torpedo plate
A lot of repair all over...
Finally it was time for the first mock up...
Here the body is painted, the engine repainted and the decals on...
And the final result
Scratchbuild items include torpedo plate, rear shocks, gear shifter, driveshaft, and LOTS of small bits and pieces...

That's one of the most sought after kits in history, and you did a fantastic job saving it.

I'll be willing to trade for something because I don't want this kit to sit in my room and be forgotten. I have only built the rear end and then put it away after the bad paint job.
