Winter is just around the corner and while my wife is thinking “What a great time to renovate the Kitchen or Bathroom.” I have been thinking about my winter RC project. One of the ideas that I have been tossing around is building a “Shelf Queen”. I like to display my RC’s and having a clean one around would be helpful for when I am explaining something RC related to a guest in my home. Also a nice “Shelf Queen” can make a good conversation piece for RC enthusiasts.
I could just buy a new RC, take it out of the box, put it on the shelf and call it a day, but where is the fun? Besides, I need to use up some of these extra parts I have laying around the house. I want to build a truck that is functional and has a shiny custom look, but this can get expensive buying unnecessary but sweet looking aluminum parts (This is a Shelf Queen after all). While doing some online research I came across a video on YouTube from Darkeclipticheart that shows you how to get the Anodized Aluminum look from plastic parts. This is the type of thing that would allow me to build a inexpensive “Shelf Queen” and allow me to save some money for whatever renovation my wife decides is in my future.
