Default Lamborghini Reventon

Body: Academy Lamborghini Reventon Model Kit
Chassis: SCX DTM
Paint: mainly Tamiya Gun Metal Gray







Nice kit but a little fit issue in the rear



Still need to adjust the chassis fit a bit...front too high and the rear too low.

great looking car, Stig!
why did you paint the body? The Reventon i got orginally had this metallic grey paint on it already?
It could need some kind of flat inlet over the chassis, just to cover the white L-profile styrene...

I painted it because I don't like that super glossy molded plastic look. IMO it just looks kind of fake but paint and future give a more 1:1 look.

Completely right about the styrene I used to connect the body's post to the chassis's post. Maybe a coat of paint.

SCX NASCAR works pretty good too, but either of them needs to have the chassis modified.

Hey Stig,
I see what you mean by the fit, but it's still an awesome looking build!
Nice work!
