Kyosho 1:12 F40's part swaps from LW to reg F40 & reverse
I just started a second venture with my yosho 1:12 F40's. Making COMPLETE conversion from regular / common look F40 to lightweights. I am doing this with of cousre the yellow F40 and blk one. The first to be done is the easier the Yellow , because it already has the blk seats.
I will post photo's and explanations. NOT something everyone car do if you never built models etc, steady hand forsure. To makesure you break the glued areas but not the tabs or parts themselves. And removing the engine parts his to say the least tricky.Re-install should be fun.
ALSO: I have taken 2 kyosho yellow 1:12 F40's apart. Both still apart one waiting for just a seat colour swap to red possiblily. Another into likely total lightweight, or at least the exhuast and rims
My other one in my first experience broke the rear lift gate glass , because I lost focus of what needed to be done first and because of hidden attachments .Second car went easy no problems.
So I took out interior and dash for separte display.
And COMPLETE engine with suport framing and complete rear axle assenbly , so I left one wheel on the other off and mirror underneath. I used the 2 front tires as spares in 2 of my other 1:12's and used the rears with the engine display.
I tell you that engine makes a SUPER COOL display even better then the pocher 1/8th motor because it is more complete and better done , UNLESS you take the pocher 1/8th and add all the photo-etch parts etc to it. So does the Blk interior .
