« on: May 24, 2007, 01:52:55 PM »
Hi everyone;

I`m planning to build something based on the Rhada design from Parlabor 2 movie..... I already have one 1/35 Piranha kit from trumpeteer, that i´m planing to use to this purpose.

Here is the patlabor tank.

My only question for you is, how do race this? Seeing as this is a gran prix, the vehicle should be raceable in some form. Any back story to the type of racing?

I would assume the wheeled legs allowed it to hop and be more maneuverable on the track. Could be a cool concept actually. This thing is pretty fast in Patlabor IIRC.
Rust is beautiful.

Yea it was pretty quick, I was just curious to see if he had any sort of new type of racing thought up for it. An obstacle, or endurance course would be pretty cool.
