Too long away from this blog!
I would like to introduce you another fan of the Avante!

Mike has done a blog on his passion and a large chapter is devoted to the famous 58072 kit
The cleaning and reassembly of that car was done very meticulously, look at the end ball's polishing
Splendid picture are there for you to take advantage of this "Avante Box Art" in all its glory:)

On the other hand Mike is developing a tubular chassis for the RC10, yet at the stage of concept with 3D Solidworks, I wish him the best to realize this project.

Full Body Shape

Hello all,
Here is the body on top of the chassis. The Avante look is almost there, when the material and the postion will be final, I will try to photoshop the decals on it..can't figure out to do it in 3D or texture mapping. Hope you all dig my work :-)

Being busy at home and at work I can't update the blog as much as I want. But I can't resist to link the original Avante advertising video.. :) let's sit back, crack a beer can and enjoy...

TAMIYA AVANTE "Being Nuts is Neat !"

Enjoy the very first rendering of the almost total model. :-)
A lot of work has been put into the 3D and materials, I have to finish the wires and install the boby. Then I could do some research for the lighting.
