Tamiya Super Clodbuster Build: Part 4 – Assembling The Body

Step 43 - Mount the body

In the previous three posts I went through the assembly of the chassis, the gearboxes, and attaching the gearboxes to the chassis.  In this post, I am going to build the body and finish things up. Unfortunately I did not document the process of painting and decaling. I’m going to let the pictures do most of the talking here, as there’s not much left to tell. Enjoy!

That wraps it up! Hopefully now I can get the nerve to run it with this freshly painted body on it!
