Here is an neat update :) . Hope you like it
Thanks to Pierre L. , an another Avante fan, who send me the scans of the jewel box as I'm not sooo lucky to have one of those. The chassis is almost done and need materials fine tunning.
If you got that box and want to get rid of it :-D, just shoot me an email..

Now the Oil Shock

Here are the Avante's oil dampers. Again, there were design to match the famous Kyosho Gold Shocks, but they are way to weak to bring up the car after a bump. Love them, though, with the special spring profile .. I did them in low-polygones objects, I must keep room for the whole car..héhé. About the bottle, I modelised it following the one I had here, with the reversed stickers. Don't know if this is genuine :-/
I also try, for the first time, some specials materials with light attenuation. Maxwell 1.5 render, 320 minutes, 1280/960.

First Part !

I started the modelling with the most "Avante" part.. The famous Yellow rims and the unique uneffective Cam-Loc system.

This is the beginning

This is the Avante in all her glory.. Yellow shoes, Blue dress, constant four wheels drive, shaft transmission, RX 540 VZ TechniGold inside feeded with a 7,2V stick. Here is a good resume of her CV on Classic Tamiya RC.
