Cougars salad

Post by eugine » Sat Jan 13, 2018 10:34 am

Hi guys.

The menu for coming weeks is a Cougars salad

First you must retrieve all the ingredients, a early cougar with some touches of Topcat and a second one in kit.

After you shall very well clean it and cook it in boiled water some minutes. Be careful not too long !

After you dry it

Then you serve it layed on a big wooden platform with some sand paper sheets and a bowl of water !

When it is done you spend a lot of time paper-sanding then polishing it

After you have polished it until you can see your tired face in, you scratch the surface to have the same "brushed" finish as the original one

then for the dessert you shall assemble it...

To be continued ...

Polishing always gets my attention...that chassis tub is looking fantastic! I have mostly Kyosho cars, with the exception of a nice little AE RC12L3, but if there's one car I'd like to build, it's one of these Schumachers. Looking forward to the rest of your resto!

Thank you Coelacanth.

Tha advantage with aluminum is you can "repair" most of track damages. Not all because deep scratches are remaining but most of them :)

Kyoshos and RC12 are great cars also!
