Custom R/C bodies for ANY scale



Hey, guys this is a feeler, but i can construct custom r.c. bodies ranging from Z racers to full 1/5th scale cars. For example, i already have a e30m3 model in construction. These are made from old scanned paper model kits from europe, so detail is super amazing, i scale them, increase the resolution and print them on special bristleboard.

They are constructed, painted black on the inside, glue gunned edges on the inside, and clear coated on the outside. windows are either cut out or left in, ( filled with clear window plastic.) Anyways, custom accessories can include:

white led headlights, etc, and even custom graphics.

so far, i have e30 M3, e36, 745iL, citroen BX, fiat 126, polonez, etc.

I would charge on supply costs, time, and size. My prices would be in 40-50 dollar range basic, ( same price as many UNFINISHED bodies)

so, who's interested?

i will when it is done. Don't think since its paper, its not detailed. The e30 M3 PAPER model has fender flairs, curved bumpers, etc. It doesn't look paper, and it is NOT tiled, it is printed in full sheet

I ll post it soon, these take me 3 weeks to build, but the end result is amazing! They are not crash resistant, tend to dent, but they can be repaired, but they are as hard as plastic bodies, and since e30 M3 shells are almost impossible to find, i thought, i ll scan in paper models and make them myself!
