Tamiya Sonic Fighter

HI!... I picked up a Sonic Fighter a bit ago. Was advertised of being new built and a shelf queen. Far from it. Took 45 days to get to me. ngry: It had overspray all over it. The front tires were so dry rotted they had to be thrown out. Some of the body had not been painted. MSC was never installed. So I dipped all the oversprayed parts in a paint remover that I have been using for years on RC plastic. Don't know what happened this time but the paint remover destroyed all the parts I put in it. I've already ordered replacement parts.

Well I got some work done to the Sonic Fighter this weekend. Took a while but I was able to mix up some custom paint to match the previous owners paint job. Had to do it with a brush though. Not too happy about that but it turned out pretty good I think. I'm currently painting the driver's head. The driver is going box art. I need to get some new front tires. The originals were all dry rotted. Still need to get a "D" sprue due to the paint remover melting them. ngry: I would of had the back all put back together today but for the life of me I can find the rear trailing arm mounting brackets!!!! I have torn my house and shop apart and they have simply disappeared. So it looks like I will have to buy a "R" sprue now too. ngry:
