Way back in 2010 I built one of these cars.  Probably a thread somewhere on Slotblog so I won't go through the build up again.
And I think I built 2 Neat Things Chassis for Philippe as well so when a customer asked me to build another one... it wasn't too hard.
Just time consuming.

This is the first pictures I took of the progress about Mid March. 
Paint masks were hand cut with a #11 blade and a light table.
The motor is a Mura "C" with a gp20 arm.  She sings beautifully.

Yeah, I know that the front wheels are not correct but they were provided by the customer.

Finished car:

Customer also requested a second body, also a replica of one I have painted before with Power by MURA instead of the BRT logo.

Is the second black body one of the Riggen series that had "built-in" spoilers and diaplanes?

Jairus. or anyone else, do you recall who built the chassis for the original Granlee car? Another good build & well-detailed bodies, Jairus.

Steve, I meant the paint job. But nice body too!

 

That may be the best paint job I've ever seen. :good:

this car takes me back to being 15, having a middle of the road badger airbrush and taking hours painting body's with things like lace, and after putting my "green" cans in an oven for heat treatment getting BROWN cans that never the less had very hard coatings

Understood.  Just trying to find out the manufacturer of the body.  I think it is Riggen, but could be a very late and maybe last Lancer catalog number.
