    First AWD R/C car 1986

    The second R/C build started with a drawing, then the actual clear body got its color palette, paint job. The flames were drawn first, outlined, then the red background with pink shading in between the flames was the next step. I used rubber cement to cover the flame tips, similar to tape, but without the Xacto knife cuts. The blue transparent paint went on the windows, then covered with tape. The red rear tail lights were covered with rubber cement as well as the license plate area. Finally, the thin layer of gloss black paint was sprayed on for the finish coat. this was the most intricate multi color paint job i had ever tried. With the use of rubber cement, the free form areas were painted on like using a paint pen. After the paint dried, the rubber cement was peeled off leaving a smooth surface for the next layer.

    The odd thing was, on a real car the base paint is sprayed on first, then the flames, then the shading, and the final pinstriping, etc. On these model R/C clear plastic car bodies, the flames were painted first, outlined, then the intricate shading areas came next, and then the final larger base coat. But, care was taken that any layer was sprayed or hand painted using thin, but full covered layers. Any paint that was too thick was splintered and cracked upon the first roll over or bump into a rock/tree. Regardless of what the over layers looked like underneath (inside) of the plastic body, on the outside, the paint job looked perfectly smooth due to the clear plastic body. Nothing was required to make it shiny and smooth. If numbers, decals or lettering was necessary and you did not want to paint it on backwards(inside), then those were applied to the exterior surface of the plastic body. I was always too happy with the multi-color paint job to cover it with decals or external lettering that was not my hand lettering.

    On the chassis and power rebuild, I immediately replaced the plastic shocks with aluminum oil shocks for a better ride and put on larger tires and custom wheels. I upgraded the motor to a more powerful Reedy modified version. It was a night and day transformation using the Reedy Motors. They had so much more power than the stock Mabuchi motors and no motor mods were necessary to have a fast (fastest) R/C car or truck.

    From this point on, all stock motors were immediately replaced with Reedy motors, as much as the wallet allowed. Having so many Reedy motors left me with one new one from this time period. It was going to be bolted into my last build. It is still waiting for that rainy day build.


    I still have one Reedy motor in the garage as a reminder of how much fun I had with these custom builds. After 31 years, the motor still turns over and sounds as powerful as ever. But, over all of this time, just sitting around, the magnets might need a recharge before any full on acceleration in a race or two.

    Simple pencil drawing. 5x7. Sorry I was not able to be at the roundup this year for the first time in a long time. Really missed being a vendor and meeting up with old friends.
