And to sum up this nostalgical S40 blogg, here's some pics of the vacume mold of the body and wings. R.I.P.
Milko Tenthof's S40 with an Dale Earnhardt painjob. Everything is painted except the small sponsor logos. Also a prototype EVO3 body. I think this is one of very few RC items Milko still have from his time at Serpent.
Milko Tenthof's S40 - I used an old Hobbynox transparent yellow for his bodies. They looked like gold. This was a prototype EVO3 body with extended rear wheel arcs.

Side shot of my own race amber-orange Hobbynox colored S40 body (original colors from the 80's) .
Some nostalic pics of the 235 mm wide bodyshell I made in the later part of the 90's. It has an race record not even Dale Epp can compete with - not even close... :)
It has won 100% of all IFMAR 1:10 IC world championships ever raced! A perfect score. :)
I made three evolutions of it but in the end Serpent couldnt come up to the minimum order limit so it was out of the market.
Many old Serpent car tools where auctioned away also.
The wrench room at Serpent where they wrenched on their prototype and race cars etc. All items auctioned away I think...
When looking through some pics from the bankrupcy auction of Serpents assets I noticed that my old Edlund Racing Volvo S40 body in one of the cabinettes that where up for bidding (bottom shelf). Dont know if Julius Kolff's Impact car with my bodyshell was sold though... Its quite sad. I have many memories with my buddys Milko, Julius & Stef there. I wish them all the best in the new company structure after the bankrupcy of the old Serpent MRC.
