Escargot - essential upgrade
Permalink  
 


I came across this Cargo on the interweb and spotted an aero improvement that the library bus simply must have:

434754098b06d18026116cbcc2c73e78--solder

Yep - go faster aero kit. I'm not sure whether the screen shade contributes a great deal of downforce but the front dam is surely a must have.

Hope so. It's been an uncharacteristically long time.

What am I talking about "uncharacteristically"?

Several new planets have been discovered since the last update and there have been about 4 new series of LF "styling" updates.

WRT essential upgrades it sounds like there is already an upgrade coming to Escargot...

Not content with buying two ship trucks to try and make one good one, we purchased another half a ship truck today to add about half of that to the ship yellow truck to try and make it slightly less ship. Another installment of putting axles under trucks is coming. Sometime.

Considering they signed off Ep5 with:

RB:   "apparently this one's riding way too high"

NB:  "It's not that it's riding way too high, it's that it's not adjustable!"

Slammed on 'bags then?

^^^ that's quite hilarious how the forum has autocorrected BOMs own words with "ship"

biggrin

 I didn't know it could do that. And here I thought it was you being all "Family Friendly".

My thought too GRC!

Just a thought:
If Binky is (milky milky) white, what colour will the mothership be?

Ooh, good point! Not considered the paint job for the escargot - been concentrating on the min-bin

Certainly would have the stealthy look - and there's something quite racy about the chequered effect of black transporter with white Binky inside. Actually, I wonder if they'll do the whole thing in pearlescent squares on a Pirate Black base. Nice.
I'm guessing that they'll replace the Ford badge with a BOM one.

Something tells me Episode 6 will be a long, long way from paint, though. 3 hour feature-length episode notwithstanding of course.

I like the way you think!

My psychiatrist says it's just paranoid delusion (with a side diagnosis of weekend schizophrenia). All quite normal, and nothing that can't be fixed with huge quantity of drugs, talking therapies and (most importantly) weekly episodes from Bad Obsession Motorsport. Minis, Trucks, Race Cars - doesn't matter which.

 Funny you say that - BOM just tweeted Escargot can wait as Binky is just too tempting to work on

So maybe not Part 6 for Easter (2021) but Ep.34 instead!

 

Woo and might I say Hoo!
