    Finally got my beetle body painted for the DT-02 that was a holiday buggy.
    Second body I’ve painted and first time using window masks and also the window surround stickers. It came with a lot more stickers but I decided to go without them. The tamiya metallic purple looks really good in the light. It looks like it’s sat a little bit far back on the chassis when you look at the arches but it wouldn’t fit any further forward because of the motor. I still think it looks great!

    That looks ace

    This is a good place to plug an event I went to, although not on again until next year.

    I went to the Southern Scale Trail in Somerset a couple of weekends ago, was a busy weekend combining Goodwood Revival and that event. It’s an event for RC crawlers, from scale versions to one off specials. It’s ace, basically a weekend of blokes and their crawlers messing around in a quarry. Yes there were some women there but mostly not, and a few kids but not many

    I went with my 12yo son and we shared driving an Axial SCX10. We both really enjoyed it. Friendly atmosphere and no competitiveness, just a bit of fun. There’s a marked trail, plus a load of gated trails and some areas just to mess around in.

    We broke a servo horn on the day and couldn’t get a replacement to fit it from the traders on site, was gutted and thought that was the end of the day. Managed to get one from another attendee, what a result. Also came away with an Axial SCX24 because I fancied something on a smaller scale to mess around with

    I’ve been enjoying crawling more than blatting around at speed. Both good, but there’s something satisfying about the slower speed technicality, plus batteries a lot longer and there are less breakages
