Masking tape off last night, the green/blue paint was a bit thick in hindsight (lesson learned for the future, you don;t need 3 thin coats and two wet coats). End result a bit of a thick edge at the boundaries with the pearl white - onwards with a few coats of clear, then flatting and polishing. The blue green is quite a bit darker than i wanted but it'll have to do !

SO the SRB projects sit as follows currently..

SuperChamp strip and rebuild - still to start
Fighting Buggy build - chassis complete, body painted - just polishing, decals and final fititng to go
Vintage Rough Rider - 99% done, a few bits of final body accessory fitting and an ESC to install
Parts Build Sand Scorcher - Chassis almost complete, waiting on a few ball connectors for steering (arrival tomorrow), and an ESC (in the next week). Shell to be flatted, polished, decalled and glass/accessories added.

After all this activity I realised i'd bought quite a few parts that i already had #-o #-o #-o so it looks like I'll be building another SRB to consume the spares (again !) - It wasn't the plan (honest) !

..and whats worse is that 'only a few more parts' is becoming a longer list than i wanted it to be - better make it worthwhile lol!
