  1. Scratch building
    Hi folks, Although I've carved a couple of balsa bodies and sprayed them I've never taken a block of board and carved a mould for resin casting. These days in some of the proxies of your not carving your own bodies you can't get a good concourse result so I thought it was time to have a go...

It uses the same controllers as the HO set they made. While not in mint shape the set does not come up very often...
