On a custom Scorcher you got to have a set of roof mounted spot lights.
While we're on the subject of lights - IMHO it's a shame Tamiya didn't build the 2010 Sand Scorcher re-release with fitting points for 3mm or 5mm LEDs for the front and rear lights, something I'm planning to add into this build in due course.
Here's plans for my roof mounted spots, with roll-cage ( with room for 3mm LEDs ):
And how it should fit on the Scorcher:
And the first test print:
Inside, there's a clear acrylic part for the spot light glass - my first go with a material other than the white nylon:
However, I've decided that for future designs, unless the part-tree is very simple, like with the "glass", I will be printing parts separately:
Trimming the tree into the required bits was not to my liking:
So, I reprint the 5 nylon parts individually, first the roll-cage mount:
then the four LED holders/spot lamps:
Here's a close up of the assembled part before painting:
