  1. I'm looking for a NIB Vintage Toyota Celica LB Turbo bodyset. Thanks for yoy help! greetings Koen (Belgium)
  2. Yes it is. 313 bhp, 650 Nm. 5,7s for 0->100km/h and top 250 km/h with a consumption of only 7,5l/100 km in all comfort. Perfect for my daily routine and 60.000km/y.
  3. Who cares? that's probably why it never breaks down (it's my third one) ;-)
  4. My daily is an Audi A6 Allroad bitdi. Does the daily job perfect with 313 hp, airsuspension and 650 Nm torque. Fuel consumption: very acceptable (7,5l/100 km)
  5. Thanks for your help guys. This confirms my feelings. Did some research myself and quickly found out the same things as you do. As said. I opted for: "when in doubt, simply walk away" :-) cheers!
  6. Hi Wireless, this is strange, very strange ... I was offered by a friend a few months back an original RS500 from Switserland! It was used as a pacecar in 1986. It comes with a letter of intend form Ford Tjechie claiming it is the only original RS500 in Left Hand Drive. The asking price is approx half of the real value. I didn't really trust this and did not buy the car seen all RS500's were RHD. The car is still for sale. included a few pics. What do you think? grts
  7. You lucky guys drive on the right Side of the road. So you can buy all these fantastic Japanese sportscars. I'm slightly jealous 😀. I have a German duo, which does the job perfect 👍
  8. Hi Guys, some very nice cars here!. 5 years ago I turned 40 and wanted to by my dream car. Still scares the .... out of me everytime I drive it :-) grts
  9. I'm finishing the rebuilt of my Lancia Delta Integrale EVO 2 . I thought that it only needed minor repairs on the chassis. But someone measured pressure loss in one of the cilinders. Took the engine out and we discovered one thing after another. I wanted it to be perfect with original parts. So the quest for original parts started. Thank God for Walkers in the UK!. I had all bearings/joints/rubbers changed. New brakes/discs/pads all around, the list is to long to mention. The enigine is about 40% new parts. Total ... 8500€ ... a little more then I expected. But soon I'll be the owner of an almost perfect Integrale ... cause a perfect one doesn't exsist I fear. It remains an Italian car ;-)
  10. For my daily car I drive an Audi A6 Allroad 3.0 tdi. Apart from all the inside options I put on 19" RS6 wheels in anthracite on. With the airsuspension (always on Dynamic ;-) ) it runs as smooth as silk. Wheels ... you do need them! (Allthough my wife doesn't share my thoughts on that point ) From september on this will be my weekend car. An original Lancia Delta Integrale Evolution 2 "Giallo" It just needs an few checks on the chassis. Rare thing on this car is that it was never repainted and has no rust. these things normally rust faster then the painter can paint then 215 bhp, 4wd, 5,7 0->100 km/h, 220 top ... more then enough for me! thanks for watching. cheers Koen, Belgium
  11. After closer inspection of the pics, I share your opinion. It looks mat instead of shiny.
  12. I suddenly had a nice thought: "And suddenly the grey bumper will be worth more than the black one!".... Re-releases never really excite me ... but this one ... o boy ... this one does!
  13. He drove the car the day after! He's still look "cool" behind the wheels
  14. Hi guys, just want to thank all those that voted for my "Ice Champ". I never won (allthough .... if you count Ebay in ... ) something before in my life. Me and (esp.) my son are very, very happy! Also many thanks to Stella and Chris for their never ending support to this fantastic hobby! Oh, and the day after the shooting was done the Super Champ ran again. Have to leave you now, must buy some option parts at Stella .... !! thanks again guys! Koen Belgium
  15. Hi, I believe that Racingmaster has a very nice one for sale at the moment. greetings
  16. Nice topic going on here. I've build it myself (thx for the nice comment Clarkey) and I can assure you that it takes a very long time to do it correctly. The screws are M1,2 !! .. . so very, very small. But it all fits like a glove (like we are used from Tamiya) When finished there are dozens of parts where you put hours into detail that you can't see anymore. But a true modeler doesn't mind ... he knows it's perfect everywhere! Keep up the good work and when finished, enjoy it! greetings Koenc

  18. Here are a few more pics off a Rothmans M3 http://hometown.aol.de/Racingmodell43/m3.JPG (bad pic, but gives you an idea) http://hometown.aol.de/Racingmodell43/m3rothmans10gross.JPG http://www.mediamixhobby.com.sg/catalog/pr...d75bd7a3ec5d1ed greetings Koen
  19. Hi Guys, I think I have solved a big (for me it was) problem. I managed to laserprint and lasercut thin black lines. these black lines have a width of 0,4 mm. The lasercut is 2 mm wide. These improve the looks on your car dramatically. Just look at these pics I took. If you are interested in some. Let me know greeetings Koen http://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=19681&id=41
  20. I'm building my M3 and suddenly I lost the right side mirror ??!! It's peace nr H3 (the one you need to paint white) Can't find it anywhere. If somebody has this one for spare ,please let me know. Thanks and greetings Koen
  21. The left hand driver-insert suddenly will be worth much more I fear . . . .
