Kyosho Optima restauration

Bild
There's not much to talk about these days as it's winter season and most R/C Rally activities are set to 0. Nevertheless I'm quite busy with my winter restauration project, an original Kyosho Optima. Whoever put hands on one of those back in the day, knows how sophisticated and well-engineered they were. I finshed chassis-rebuild and started doing the shell. First step was stripping old paint with nitro fuel. As it was my first time stripping a lexan shell, I was quite afraid of damaging it, but it came out excellent! It is now waiting for the hardest part: painting! More pics to follow.
