NIP Schumacher CAT XLS

Post by CNA75 »

All

I have been meaning to post some pics of my NIP CAT XLS build for a while now. So here we are. The build started with being one which was about 95% nip with the remaining parts being good condition second hand. However, I have since managed to get hold of enough nip parts to make the car completely new. Everything is nip original Schumacher XLS including the shell/wing/undertray/belt cover (I was fortunate enough to buy a number of the last few of these which Schumacher recently had listed on their website), shocks and the chrome wheels.

As you would expect, I am really pleased with this car. When I was first into RC as a kid (bashing my Tamiya Fox about), this was the car that everyone aspired to have when it came to racing. I seem to remember the likes of Jamie Booth racing one of these very successfully back in those days.

I have recently acquired an original Schumacher CAT XLS manual and parts list and am now on the look out for a good condition CAT XLS box to complete the total package.

I hope you enjoy these pics.....:

Thanks, Jay. I take that you'll be producing some of your top quality repros for the XL/XLS soon then......?

Beautiful build! I think the XLS is probably one of the top 3 best looking RC shells ever. Will you paint it? I'm going to convert one of my Procats to XLS but probably wont't get round to it until next summer!

Thanks, Luke. Fortunately, I have enough spare XL/XLS shells that I will paint a couple of them. I'm definitely going to have one in the boxart colours but will also try to be a bit more original and go for something different. I really like the paintwork designs that Bormac produces on his Schumacher cars but they are unique to Bormac and I don't wish to plagiarise those so I will need to do something different (art was never my strongest subject!)....

Thanks, Jeroen! Definitely don't have anywhere near as many CATs as you! (But I'm working on it :D - hoping to build an XL shortly (with period hop-ups) and complete my CF SWB. I'll post pics of these when I have the chance....)

Charles,
Absolutely gorgeous build. Can't wait to see some pics with a painted shell. Definitely a cool looking buggy.
