Edinger Kit Manual / Replica of Backpage RC10

Post by scr8p »

i've been wanting to throw this car together for awhile now. this is the rc10 that's on the back page of the edinger kit manual.

i had one gold tub and one nose plate left that weren't bent or heavily beat up. so i decided to use it as the platform for it. i do plan on using this car, so i don't want to make it too nice, or i won't want too. i also soaked all (and i mean ALL) of the used white parts that i had laying around in peroxide, and picked out the nicest stuff. i'm still missing a couple pieces, but i'll find them eventually. it isn't anything that'll be hard to get.

so here it is so far......... nothing special.

i picked up a set of aluminum spring collars from mikedealer a couple months ago for this car, and the anodizing is very close to the ano on the chassis. i spent some time today stripping the shock bodies and caps and getting them ready to put back together. i still have to do the fronts. i also have to dye a pair of shock rod ends red for the ones on the rear.

and i made it even easier on myself because i dyed 2 more shock rod ends red than i actually needed for my masami replica by accident. so now i don't have to dye any. :mrgreen:

it's atleast 5. :lol:

to be honest, i don't know if they're the chrome rims or an aluminum outer like the rps ones. probably the chrome rims....... they look to be pretty shiney in the pic.

:lol: Good stuff. I think I have my colors picked out. At the end of it I'm going to take only black and white pics for my build thread anyway :wink: Three things though Jason... Is it me or are there no wing buttons visible? That decal scheme had to come from some F1 or Rally car. very European. That will be a task! An to be true, it appears as though we need a rear sway bar, but with the right side (closest in the photo) disconnected. -Brian

when you are ready to paint, i can probably make some sort of checkerboard mask like you asked before, i worked this up in photoshop in about 5 seconds this morning... it wasnt hard.. doug may be able to make something a little better in illustrator... he is better at vector art than i am.

I think most of those decals are from an early Associated on road sheet. I might even still have it here in the box o' decal fun.

I wouldn't waste time on a mask for those checks, either. ;) :) Think like 1985—they weren't using plotters for anything on RC cars.

ya, freehand will be the way to go to be able to get the "look" right. it's just more of a laziness thing with me. :lol: but once i get started laying the tape out, it won't be that bad.
