Black special land cruiser cc-01

I’m a little disappointed Tamiya didn’t think it was necessary to put this kit in a special black edition box.


Body paint is really good though.


Nice smoke Windows, probably my first car with smoke Windows.


Driving yesterday 29th April

Took a bunch of cars to my local track and drove around for about 3 hours.

took the DM-1 Spec E now with 6S and 17T pinion. It took off on the straight, literally. So I dropped it back to the 13T for this track and it works well. Tyres are a problem. The other problem was that I was so excited to drive it I forgot to video it… DUH.

Though, here is a video collection of the other cars I drove.
It’s just driving with no music, add your own.

Making scale parts

The guys down at the track I go to are also into CC01 based scale crawlers, so I dusted off one or two of mine and set to making some scale parts for them.

I started off making an interior for my Land Cruiser.
It’s made from 1mm plastic board, 5mm plastic round stick and glue. The steering wheel is from an Axial wraith kit and the driver is a Wrestling figure.

Next, I had a go at making a roof ladder and rack for the Pajero, again, using 5mm plastic round and square.

All these parts were made without plan, I just thought about the shape in my head and then started cutting parts out. I’m sure they would look a lot better if I planned them out properly.
