    Hi

    I would like to share with you my latest build - Toyota SR5 1985 on Axial SCX10 II chassis. I focus mostly on body and interior, thats why for this project I use custom designed items for 3D print.


    Inspiration

    Inspiration was of course Toyota sr5 from the middle 80s. Car You can watch in Back to the future movie and almost the same version that guys form Top Gear try to destroy : )

    Assembling the chassis
    Here, everything went traditional. Only change so far I made in gearbox top shaft to avoid slope that occur in this KIT. I cut some remaining plastic pipe and put in on the end of the shaft.

    Elements Design

    Body from proline is made with accuracy known for them. What suprizes me is that lexan used for this shell is very thick (1 mm and more). But painted and with stickers only looks a little bit ascetic. So I decide to add some more life to it. I designed for now around 17 elements like grill bumers wipers ect. There are more to come, but I will focus now only for them.

    Order from Shapeways

    All finished items was ordered from Shapeways. (For those that doesn't know Shapeways is a page where You can downlad Your project and easily order it as 3d print, and publish for everyone)
    Elements was very good quality. The main material that they use is the so-called "White / black strong & flexible", which is much more accurate than the standard FFF prints (melted in a heated head) found in home 3d printers.
    Some smaller parts was printed using High Definition Acrylate (UV-sensitive print method) here the quality is insane.

    Painting items

    This stage was a big experiment because I have no experience in painting and generally in painting at all. Fortunately material from Shapeways was easy to work with and most importantly resistant to acetone! So some parts I could paint so many times that I thought it was good; )

    There are many ways to paint this materials. They can be also mount without painting. The main elements - (White / black strong & flexible) I painted in a simple way:

    1. Firts I put thin layer of primer (Tamiya 87064 Fine Surface Primer)

    2. After a few minutes, I brushed the primer with 600 wet sandpaper (I rubed the primer until the surface of item was gently visible)

    [​IMG]

    3. another layer of primer and sandpaper 800 then 1200 and stop with 3000

    Fnished items were painted with Tamiya TS-76 Mica Silver, TS-29 Semi Gloss Black, TS-14 Black, TS-1 Red Brown

    The elements of the lamps are made with the transparent Frosted Detail Plastic, and is just after that is matt. I use 1200 and 3000 sandpaper, and use spray varnish. Tamiya X-27 Clear Orange, Tamiya X-27 Clear Red can be used to add red or orange or ranom marker.

    The chassis is almost ready. I am not really good at gluing plastic so I use here inner fenders from Axial. In the chassis I cut a little battery case and the receiver box to make room for the interior, with was made form styrene. In future here will be more stuff, of course 3d printed. To hold body on it I use 20x3mm magnets. New receiver box now is from traxxas. And YES the cable from the phone to connect the lights.
    HELLO- is it me you're building for?

    Toyota body is painted and ready for all 3D printed parts.
    The red orange-white paint is a loose interpretation of the iconic Toyota 80s paintings. Lexan was painted from the outside for matte lacquer paint. Weathering may be improved later.

    I see a PS-60 door and I want it painted PS-55
    No colors anymore I want them to turn PS-55 ; )

    Here is a sneak preview of assembled all 3d printed parts fon toyota pro-line body :)
    Everything fits perfectly. Car is ready to run outside, and it performs well. I set chassis for Scaled competition and take 4th place :) ( I run without winch.. and lost on the last special stage. So next step will be adding Warn winch. Now I will focus on interior few parts. I will post more pictures from outside soon : )
