Accessories

Post  Jayboy74 on Mon Jul 18, 2011 9:38 am

I know Aperture is going to pi$$ himself laughing here, but i'll look past his jaibes and ask:

If I wanted to make my own accessories etc for Scale, what materials do you use for the various things, also bodies, what do you use to make them,

I'd love to learn how to do it all, (I have my heart on building a 100series shell)

anyway, am keen.

you can make snatch straps from Shoe laces...Occy straps from hair ties and some wire.
Custom bodies are usually made out of styrene sheet...but its pretty hardcore to do, and they break easy if you drive them hard.

hilifts etc can be made from styrene sheet/rod/square etc.

But you can buy pre-made ones pretty cheap from proline and the like.

Yeah i've seen these but i thought i might be able to do it cheaper myself. One thing you will learn about me is that i teach fishes how to waterproof their b.ms.

Fair enough then...if you made a sh!t load of them it would work out cheaper. But buying the styrene to make 1 or 2 doesnt really work out to be overly cost effective...
