Well mines back on the shelf, just come to a stop, never mind having fun with my shockwave 26 on a 60amp esc and 3 cell  :-) there is a company who makes the Bluebird ready to run, I will find the link. :-) bit pricey but look nice, not sure if my gear will fit in it  {:-{

Thought you might like to know what colour bluebird K7 really was. It was first painted in 1955 in a Mercedes colour called Himmelblau (spelling?). (German for Sky Blue apparently).
Car paint suppliers can mix it and supply it in an aerosol.

Video of my Touchwood Bluebird at the link below.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5VxqnYZo_w
The build was a close copy of OOYAH's whose advice I followed every step of the way.  Now that she is finally watertight (liberal use of Epoxy resin in every seam), she goes well  :-).  Next step should be to switch to Lipos but I am not sure of my ability to control her at higher speeds  %%.

Wow  -  Small world !  Having been following this thread with interest for some time I was naturally very interested in seeing the K7 in action and up close at my local club this morning.  Seeing this video on Mayhem, all I can say is that she runs fantastic and looks great.  Black Park makes a good Lake Coniston  :-))

Hi Jeremy,
Well done , she looks absolutely Fab, stick with the NimH until you become familiar with K7.
It makes a big difference when water tight.
