Just tried to PM you but it says your box is full. Anyway, forgot to mention, I have six v14 Cobra Troopers (black face mask) loose, complete. They're in good shape, display only, but the helmets have been glued on.
i wish you good luck. it's not the easy path thats for sure. check around on the tape, you can usually find it cheap on amazon or ebay, much cheaper than a hobby shop, not their fault though, they have high markups to pay for rent, etc. tamiya has tape in several widths. i happen to prefer the 18mm. i tend to get more strips out of it than the 10mm(?), next size down. also buy a bundle of knife blades. it's so much easier to cut with a very sharp blade and they dull quickly when cutting over a mat.
let us know how it goes. new or old night raven? being black, saves you a step in painting, replace black with burgandy.
Hey man, I am going to try your method with the tape on a night Raven. After watching you put together that Skystriker, your results are too good not to attempt. Your results make mine look like a hurried ameturish mess. I found a RC Car Shop here in town and picked up 3 spools of 1/8" tape.
Hey you've probably have had a few people ask this but I need help. I just picked up a 2002 rattler TRU exclusive very cheap at NJCC yesterday. I would like to paint it up because as you know the colors for this release are just plain nasty. How do you separate the shell? It seems to be glued. Is there a way to loosen this without damaging the shell? your help will be appreciated. THANX.
