  1. Hi Everyone I have been practicing with my airbrush for the past 6 months and now want to spray my new Lunchbox body, does anyone have any tips on what paint to use in a airbrush for a solid tamiya body? and if you have any past experience with this what mix or paint, thinner or water did you use?
  2. Thanks I just bought some of teh amazon ones :)
  3. Can anyone recommend a under car/truck lighting kit? I want to illuminate under my Tamiya King Hauler but am struggling to find a led strip suitable.
  4. De solv it graffi remover (you can get it from B&Q) the stuff works so well. I am actually doing it to my King Hauler this week.
  5. I agree, I stopped using Tamiya white years ago, i have wrecked so many bodies with it. Awful stuff. I use fasttrax white now days and not had an issue with it. Only other tamiya paint I have had issues with is the ps neon colours, they flaked when dry espesially the orange.
  6. Nimh at the moment but I am thinking of going Lipo on it in the future.
  7. I have a King Hauler with a Carson Poison Truck Motor installed and it works great but, if I add my flatbed trailer and try and drive over short grass the truck stops and wont move (It just seems to slow to a stop and hasnt got the power to move), is this normal or should this truck be able to drag a trailer over short grass? I have tried it with the diffs locked and unlocked and it makes no difference. If not normal has anyone got any ideas on solutions?
  8. Hi Everyone A while ago i painted my King Hauler silver base and then a red over the top which looked great for a while. Whats now happening now is the tamiya red is starting to flake off anywhere the truck gets lightly scratched. I was wondering does anyone have any recommendations for removing the paint from the abs body so i can paint it again?
  9. Hi Everyone I have now saved enough to purchase a larger semi trailer for my King Hauler but I was wondering whats the best route to go down for automatic connection\disconnection of the trailer & lights etc when coupled or uncoupled from the truck? I am going to go all out and get the tamiya motorised legs as well. I have looked online for a solution but not found anything yet apart from and few videos where people seems to have done thier own solution.
  10. Hi Everyone I have a Suzuki Jimny (JB23) (MF-01X Chassis) but I absolutely hate the body its so high, wobbly and noisy so I was wondering can anyone recommend a replacement body I could get for this chassis? I like it be more pickup or rally car style.

  12. Hi Everyone I have ordered a Tamiya 58617 and I have a paint style id like to try but have no idea of the best way to do it. I have made the car paint job in GT Sport (see attached) I based it on Turbo Kids outfit. Soooo my main question is can i have some tips on how to go about painting the stripes? eg: red first or stripes first ,light colours first or dark etc. im planning in using tamiya masking tape.
  13. I was doing some clearing out of my spare room and I found a Tamiya box all sealed in a vac pack bag. It was my jun watanabe Hornet!! I pre-ordered it from a local shop that has long since closed down and got it on the day of release out and figured id leave it boxed as I already had a Hornet! It has a certificate of Authenticity number that is under 100 Does anyone have any idea of what this is worth as I am now thinking it could fund my next TamiyaTruck as doing a quick search they seem to be getting rare Or should I just pack it away again and hold on to it.
  14. Perfect Thank you Your internet search skills are 100% better than mine!
  15. I am thinking 1/12 scale items for going on my flatbed trailer. So I am guessing building marerial or something else that would look good.
