Default The Elcon Cleon

I finally got around to taking some nice pictures of the bodies painted. I decided to post a separate thread from the build so it doesn't clutter up. Enjoy!













































You can follow the build [link=http://apuresound.com/RC/cleon/]HERE[/link].

Let me know what you think about the bodies.

Thanks,
Alex

Nice job with the paint.

The Cleon has got to be the prettiest RC car in existence.

Beautiful...
I see you forgot tightening two bolts for the Engine
And I think you need to make some holes to body. I know it's too perfect painting to make holes.

Anyway, Nice job.

I didn't forget bolts for the engine. I am still waiting on my Alro Race Engine to come in so I can install it. Sadly, but I will be making holes in the windows as there is no other way to get air in there.

Beside holes, you can make something like this. Last summer, I noticed the temperature of inside car went up so high on paved parking lot, I made some holes, but that wasn’t good enough.
So, I stated making this ventilating duct for an engine. It was kind of finished at the beginning of the winter. Now, I can feel hot air come out of the body.
I know I have to refine the idea, but at this time of year, I don’t have to worry about heat anymore. Maybe, during this coming summer, I will finish up.
