  1. Look forward to seeing the finished pics BTW there is another competition to be announced in the next few days - two great prizes this time!
  2. Hi guys - lets cut out the 'testing the bad word filters' please. None of them are perfect, but there is a reason they are there and I'm happy to live with occasional false red flags. Cheers Chris
  3. Not seen one of these before https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=80988
  4. Its long gone now - forgot who I traded it to. I only rediscovered it because I got a reminder I originally posted it to my showroom about 15 years ago!
  5. Ha that’s exactly why I bought it. Always seemed a lot of soft plastic to have nitro in it though
  6. I bought this a long time ago with a view to converting it to electric but never got around to it so sold it on. Think it was stamped 'Testors' and was made in the 1970s but that is as much as I know. Thinking back to it, I'm not 100% sure it even had steering? It was quite large though. Any ideas?
  7. https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=110483 Came across this while looking at old posts, The Garbo Romax. Knowing nothing about them I search google and googles top 2 recommendations were that I should go and look on Tamiyaclub! https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=68799
  8. @speedy_w_beans - Basically I want to get the club back to where it started, the more I use facebook, instagram and twitter - it make me realise, as much as I love them for continual feeds of all sorts of contents, they are not the the places to really show your models and archive your collections with like minded people. Facebook is basically post it and forget it - great for a quick bit of feedback maybe, but terrible to ever go back and look or search for something later, and virtually impossible to then explore other sensibly related content. I want to do a lot more work around reducing subscription costs The showrooms, making them a real reference place for the owners and those visiting finishing the TC app I've had in the pipeline for quite a while now Beefing up the server and storage required We've not increased subscriptions since we started charging and we've been fortunate that the income has basically always balanced the outgoings - adverts were just me exploring different funding models, possibly actually leading to more people paying a lot less. I wont be be raising pricing for subscribers and never will. We all owe them for funding the club all this time It's not a problem, I only posted the thread so people didn't panic if they suddenly saw an advert. I've got a few more options to try and the club is not going anywhere, even if nothing changes. Cheers Chris
  9. I'll read more into the options and maybe give it another go another day, but to be honest, i don't really like the looks of it
  10. OK - its terrible. I've turned it off. This was my mobile view of the home page. Apart from the logo and the menu none of the content was mine. Can't believe anyone runs this junk.
  11. I think I've turned that type of advert off now, but because of the way caching works it might still appear for a few minutes. Thats what happens when you let google do something 'automatically'
  12. ha - well thats a bit rubbish. Give me a few minutes to see what my options are.
  13. Mmmm - logged into the main site, so your name appears in the top right hand corner like this?
  14. @Superluminal were you logged into the main site? (and did you need maths tuition? )
