Shadowtrak prototype pics

Postby Newswseller » 28 Aug 2016 13:47

Thought I'd share some pictures of my shadowtrak prototype

I took it apart to compare against a production version

It looks like an AF5 was sprayed with a coat of white and then red paint.. Overspray is evident on some parts..

The wings are made of bright yellow plastic and sprayed an almost indentical grey colour to the final production version.. The wings also don't have the production dots as shown in the comparison pictures

The guns and aerial have been cast in white plastic and then repainted grey

The tow hook is hand made out of some type of wood, it's also a different shape to the production version

The stickers are identical to the production versions, just a little bit more high quality, you'll also notice it's missing the large logo on the side

Sadly overtime it's lost the windshield

I just assume this was a photography or toy fair sample


Hope you enjoyed!

Nice! :)
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?
