    it would be interesting to see it on my RC chassis lol

    I have a first gen Team Associates RC10 I did at one time have a HPI RS4 mini nitro but it went through belts and didn't handle very well cause of the power it had. But, I do want to get a HPI RS4 rally nitro one of these days...

    Has anyone considered a 3D scanning setup and some vacuum forming equipment for making nostalgic lexan bodies?

    It's great that they did four or five popular drift bodies, and some Skylines and Fairladies, but there has to be demand for some of the others, like Celica, Corona, Corolla, Cosmo, Colt, Starion, Sunny, pickups and wagons, and a list a long as your arm. Use the Nostalgic Hero Top 50 list, or survey down the posts on this website.

    Scans could be from full sized cars or from scale models. A little alteration to the proportions to accommodate the mechanicals and mounts of the car, and crank out a 3D model to vacuum form over.

    You know ABC Hobby makes about 75% of your list there... :wink:












    That's just a tiny amount of the vintage car bodies they sell...
