Thanks Dan. Thankfully, I don’t have time for scallops, because the last scallops I painted were a masking disaster ☠️. I’m thinking it’s time for the outlaw to return.

Hi JT,

Have you filled those floppy outrigger tubes with lead or is that solid rod?

The outriggers are solid .093 rods. The floppy outriggers also slide forward and backward trombone style: forward under braking to load the front and rearward under acceleration for traction. Did some tuning at Methe’s this morning - thanks Bob! Reduced tire dia , retrued Tires, changed guides, tried vaqrious weight additions and gearing options. Even managed to break a solder joint. Getting there.

Today I learned that the Tamiya British Racing Green is not dark green as the color of the cap, but nearly Kelly Green (Irish Racing Green?) So, out came the satin black and after the first coat, a sort of Green Hornet color scheme...which will not stay.
