  1. Subscription is £15.00 a year (That works out at just £1.25/mth) Details of what you get can be found on this page https://www.tamiyaclub.com/paymentinstructions.asp Chris
  2. Because of the number of forum users we have to limit the amount of images we can host for any of them, sorry. That said, subscribers, as well as their showrooms and competition access, get full access to TCPhotos.net where they can upload whatever images they like and easily link to them. More about that here
  3. I've not changed anything to do with file uploading or allowed files sizes. Anyone else having the same issue?
  4. As long as you are a subscriber to Tamiyaclub.com you also get access to our sister site for generic photo hosting. Its a dedicated system for handling photos and albums and sharing them with whoever you like. We set this up so people could leave their showrooms dedicated to great RC content and images and use the tcphoto.net service for any other picture hosting they like. Heres a quick overview on how to get the embed codes from tcphotos, should you need them https://www.tamiyaclub.com/tips/imguretc.mp4 Cheers Chris
  5. That’s right. You can upload what you want and then you can link to them from where ever you like
  6. Came across this one today https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=65054
  7. Again I'm with @SuperChamp82 I originally meant the livery itself, eg Rothmans, Martini, Gulf etc. but I was just happy to let it slide, when people started posting get kits
  8. I see a lot of people experimenting with electric kits, but it was only seeing this made me realise I see a lot less of that with Nitros. Perhaps its just much harder?
  9. And just to push the retro vibe a bit further here's another great model from the showrooms... https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=91525
  10. I could/do spend hours meandering through the Tamiyaclub showrooms, in much the same way I quite often fall into the YouTube rabbit hole. Todays journey started with this Super Champ, posted back in 2010 https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=101898 That got me reading about "Inch Pincher", which in turn took me to this great retro dune buggy video on you tube "27 Hours to La Paz"
  11. Linking back to my first post, I just found this while looking through the showrooms for more examples... https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=91537
  12. Just looking through old posts to Tamiyaclub showrooms and came across this... https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=50015 Made me wonder if there were any 'home made' type models out there?
  13. So to be the bearer of bad news if you missed it a couple of years ago.
  14. @SuperChamp82 yeah that is what I was originally intending. I agree, for whatever reason I think they nailed the majority of the Porsches.
  15. Thought it was an obvious choice for my 'This day in TC history' post. I know we've talked about it a lot, but it still has a very special place in the the clubs and my personal history, so I make no apologies in bringing it up again. Rest In Peace Rad. https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=64940
  16. All good choices Not really thought about it before I asked the question but I'm guessing there is an age thing involved here somewhere. I come from a time before virtual full body wraps we a thing and I guess thats stuck with me. Straight lines, block colour and type seem to be my thing. +1 for the rough Rider
  17. Like these https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=47697&id=6439
  18. https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=64902 Another from the 'posted to Tamiyaclub this day in history' from just the 12 years ago. Love this livery - Tamiya do do Porsches well. Whats your favourite livery for any car - out of the box?
  19. https://www.tamiyaclub.com/parts.asp Might not be as useful these, but if you now search for something like 'wheels hop up' on 'parts description' it will pull you back a list of part numbers for official hop ups. At the moment, it doesn't include what cars they fit but usually the description is quite helpful
  20. Another quick update. Thanks largely to the super human effort of Acprc (Adam) we've now sorted out the chassis definitions for nearly all 1600 models (still a few left to do) I've now made the 'similar chassis' links clickable to make it easier to explore. Also the eagle eyed among you will have noticed you can now access specific models directly, if you know the model number - just add it to the end of the url like this https://www.tamiyaclub.com/car.asp?model=58016
  21. @Re-Bugged Good spot! Members showrooms are really the reason TC exists, that is to give collectors a place to show off and catalogue their models in an organised and connected way. I'm doing some work on them at the moment to make them even better but they just felt a bit 'disconnected' to the forum activity so I decided to join them back up, at least in a small way. Chris
  22. Just added and cross referenced another 2000 Tamiya parts to the database https://www.tamiyaclub.com/parts.asp (and made it so you can search on part number, part description or model) Should bring it up to date (2019) but all the original old stuff is still in there
  23. In the early days we had a few 'problems' with subscribers wanting to post ANY pictures to their showrooms, regardless of if they were RC related or not. We understood the need for wanting to host pictures somewhere so set up TCPhotos.com for them as a generic picture hosting solution for them. It worked a lot like the main site but with no restrictions (apart from legal and decency standards) or moderation. Users could choose to make pictures public or private. Over time though, this bit of the site was neglected and fell into a bit of disrepair so about a year ago I set up something completely new http://www.tcphotos.net based on a third party dedicated picture hosting solution. All your old links should still work, but the features, structure and process are completely new. If you are a subscriber and want to make use of this service then please just let me know and I'll set you up. Cheers Chris
