To the best of my knowledge, all 1:1 Baja kits (nose, trunk lid, fenders, engine cover) were fiberglass. To me, those parts rendered in rusty steel just don't make sense.

I think it would add even more realistic authenticity if the nose, trunk lid, fenders and engine cover were replicated as old, faded, cracked, chipped gelcoat fiberglass.

I'm sure with your modeling and detailing skills, that would be no problem!

I have seen a few Baja Beetles where the builder only used the aftermarket fiberglass nose, trunk lid and engine cover and then took a sawzall to the steel fenders, so it that case the rusty fenders still work.

But ultimately it's your project. So don't mind me if you disagree with my thought process!

Hi Kruzn - Love the idea of Junkyard fiberglass ! - it's a shame that this one is almost done ( the build is a little ahead of the photos) - but I may have to investigate some technique , and you may well see it in a future build !

Default Junkyard Stance Sand Scorcher, Engine Painting

So, the bodywork is well on it's way to being painted, time to put some colour on that flat six engine

Mostly I paint with an airbrush, but there are some times when you just can't beat a tiny brush - acrylics are my preferred choice wherever possible, and that is what I mostly used on the engine.

As the build was already taking a while, I decided not to sand down any of the printed parts - the nylon plastic does have a micro pitted surface that you can see in some of the photos - with proper sanding and priming it can be eliminated, I'm saving that pleasure for my next build

Some of the engine parts during the paint process

Default Junkyard Stance Sand Scorcher, Painting the custom body parts

Here are some of my custom Sand Scorcher body parts going through the paint process - I use a lot of latex masking fluid - or salt flakes - to make off areas where I want the layer underneath to show through

Normally, It always starts with a metallic base coast, then acrylic varnish - then you can use pretty much anything on top, acrylics or enamels - and the metallic base coat should remain looking good

Default Junkyard Stance Sand Scorcher, Painting the custom body parts

Fitting the painted body parts to the shell was a very satisfying experience - Many of the parts when through multiple iterations before the fit and the look were both to my liking, so seeing the final designs in place felt good !

Default Junkyard Stance Sand Scorcher, Window Tint

It was always my plan to tint the windows on this Scorcher, but I though I'd add a Junkyard twist to the final 'glass'

So, After masking off the outside of the clear Tamiya plastic 'glass'

I sprayed the inside with a a Tamiya Smoke acrylic, with a touch of green and black added - about 5 coats

I then masked off the outside with a windscreen wiper pattern - I also painted over this with masking fluid, just to be sure ( not shown in the photos)

and then gave the outside a light coast of enamel thinners, and left to dry
It eats into the plastic and removes its sheen, giving a dusty and grimey look to the glass

Default Junkyard Stance Sand Scorcher, Final Body Spray

So, there's not a huge amount left to so on this Sand Scorcher - The bodyshell does need its final black coat - the window frames, gutter and door handles are all going to be a sort of junkyard Cal Look, in matt back.
I'm sure there's a better way of doing this - If I has a steadier hand I'd try it freestyle, but since I'm spraying with an airbrush, it's time to mask (for the last time - Yeah ! )

At the start of the process,,

Default Junkyard Stance Sand Scorcher, wiring the LED lights

Before I do my final 'reveal' of the Junkyard Stance Sand Scorcher, there is the small matter of wiring up all the LEDs - I've got ten sockets available, so there's going to be a lot of cabling running around the inside of the bodyshell
There's probably a way of cutting the cables shorter where possible - and reattaching a new plug - but I wasn't confident of that!
Instead - I designed a clip, printed in groups of ten

Where the hooks alternate in direction

I cut them off, and glued them into the inside of the bodyshell

this allowed me to run the cables where I wanted them

Default Junkyard Stance Sand Scorcher, Servo Mount

One last addition to my Sand Scorcher before I take it out into the dirt and give it a good thrashing - a steering servo mount.
I was never that impressed that Tamiya tell you to stick the servo to the bottom of the electronics box with double sided - What's that all about !

Here's my servo mount, the bottom is face is shaped to fit the lumps and bumps on the bottom of the electronics box

and has a pilot hole for fitting to the electronics box - it does require drilling two holes through the box - compromising its 'waterproof' status

I'd rather have a secured steering servo, thanks

Default Junkyard Stance Sand Scorcher, VW Wheels

So, I'm ending this build with the same custom part that I opened with - my Junkyard Stance ten spoke wheels,

I'm still liking the Tamiya inspired, three part designs

and the increased 18mm rear, and 6mm front track

But they needed something more -

I've never been that keen on seeing the M4 wheel nut on a 1/10th scale build, so I decided to modify my designs to include an extra lug and pilot hole between every other spoke

This allowed me to add a VW inspired hub cap, that screws on after the wheel is fitted, and covers the M4 wheel nut

At first, I printed them in the nylon material, here's them painted

But once the fit was good, I went for Shapeways 'Nickel Polished Steel'

The same VW wheel hub, fits the fronts,

and the rears

And when you add them to a set of Super Grippers, that I spent hours painting with a pin and the contents of a white jelly pen - you've got a unique set of rims worthy of the build
