track down remaining missing decals-

figure out what battery bars were used on this car-
figure out an obtain the proper KO servo and (AM?) reciever-
glass bead the center hardened oneway-
obtain and modify the Kose heatsink for the HPC-
modify rear motor mount (lighten)-
modify rear bulkhead (dremel lighten for dirt escape)-

Wow, you do have a bit of work to do. You know Reg, ignorance is bliss, you could be done already if you just didn't pay that much attention to detail :wink: :lol:

Did something the other night

(I loath doing this again since I already did the pink ones :| ) I also scored an original white Yatabe Arena decal sheet and the correct pair of purple Novak decals too

Neat job!.... it really is quite a tedious task, cutting those discs out & applying them the the wheels.

Good score on the correct Yatabe decals!! - they must be rare as rare!! The ones on my car are from the current sheet that you buy in the Arena on-site shop, they are slightly different with the little on-road car rather than the buggy as yours will have, also I don't have quite the right size :( P.S; I think the 'Novak' on the wing was Purple, but the one on the shell is Pink?

Your right about the shell one being pink, I have a darker scan somewhere where it looked purple. The only difference in the Yatabe decals I have and you have that I can see is mine have a buggy and yours have a sedan?


Fakiee, I was referring to the battery bars connecting the cells

Yes the image, I think on the first page of this thread seems to show the Novak decal on the shell being similar in colour to the one on the wing... it was only the above close-up image that comfirmed that it was more likely to have been pink. Yes my Yatabe decals are identical bar the little 'sedan' but the size of them are not quite the same - I have two on my car that are a touch too large... & one on the roof which is a bit too small :roll:

P.S; might be in luck with some more decals for us both.... i'll be in touch if they materialise :wink:

That is an Awesome build.. Im working on a Worlds '95 Winning Pavidas car. Got pics from Mark the other night to go along with my Worlds '95 Kinwald T.Q. car.

I will send you pics of the BK car...it still has all his custom machining work done to the hubs, Towers. etc. Brian is going to paint a "Era" correct body and wing for me to put on it. :)

I replicate starwars filming props, and its hard......replicating a Yokomo RC buggy, used for a WC and then possibly laid to rest....., even down to decals, something else, my hats off to you, i really find the patience you have inspiring.
