    MTC`s Mini E-Revo

    Here is my merv, recovered after fire accident. Burned ESC replaced with SV2 added new proline body. Paint job was really a pain-job, and it was done with liquid mask.
    Tell me what you think

    hey nice work
    chassis etc. looks awesome and clean, the green wouldnt be my favorite choice but i can imagine how hard it was.

    Same Design with white as the main color and icey blue "tribals" and i will fall in love :-D
    But thats just my point of view

    A little recommendation, have a look at the OFNA wing, its bigger and nearly undestroyable
    It has the better proportion for the revo.

    Looks awesome! I love the all over black. Makes me wish I went with black rpm parts now, and dye the chassis/parts of coarse.
    As just said, purchase a 1/12 scale ofna wing. Much more durable, functional and the size suits the revo better than stock.

    Long time lurker. First time poster. Black on black really looks nice. Especially like the braiding cover on the power wires. Question, I see everyone making connector blocks on/under the rear wing bulkhead. How is this done??

    Wow! You have skills to cut out the mask and get edges like those for your cool tribal flames! Ihave gotten ready made masks off Ebay from a seller Automodz and they have been great andeasy. Just search for RC paint mask and they will show up. You simply would apply the mask for the flames, paint the other area, spray over your backer then peel the flames as you wish and spray and back etc.

    You have a cool ride, nice work!

    'love it, nice work! There is something cool about restoring a busted car ... although after i took a busted old one off ebay it almost put me off the MERV for life, it took a lot of rebuilding, but got there in the end

    Great build, good choice in powerplant. Pat yourself on the back for the paint, I would but B-more is a long way from you. I've been thinking about the slipstream n I need a new body,hmm.
