    Getting ever so close to being done. A tip, for what it's worth, I use a small paintbrush to wrangle small decals from the water bath to positioning on the model, and then removing extra water. Works better, for me, than my fingers, and greatly reduces the chances of destroying a decal.

        First thought is you are doing a great job documenting the build and the process . I find it relatively easy to back track and take a closer look at a portion of the build if need be.

        Next thought has me really impressed with this model - a real quality model to build from !

          Thanks so much for the wonderful compliment!

          You are absolutely correct, this is such an impressive model to build! The attention to detail is just lovely!

          I hope my build does it justice.

          Thanks

            I think you had mentioned the 030, but what specific motor are you using in this sidewinder build?

            Which short can motors are out there that could be used in this kind of sidewinder application within tight quarters?

                  What motor are you running in the car? It is a sidewinder 030 I believe?

                I think you had mentioned the FF-030 at some point in the series, but what specific motor are you using in this sidewinder build?

                  The motor is a Mabuchi 030 motor, here are some photos of the chassis build:

                    Where could I source one like it?

                    I don't see any ID on it or batch numbers or anything.

                      Here is the same motor, being used for another project, before removal of the label:
