  1. Wow what a resource. (this is my first tank so I really don't know about sites like that. Thanks!
  2. Hi all. I'm wondering if anyone has come up with any ideas on how to replace the rubber on tank road wheels. I've just acquired a leopard 1A4 which is in need of restoration and it has a few of its rubber tyres missing. I was thinking, since finding originals is probably extremely difficult, thatI could just use some other source of rubber to wrap the wheels in. Has anyone done this successfully? Has anyone got any tips or suggestions on how I can do this effectively? Or even if there is an aftermarket source for parts for these old tanks (it's missing a few body details too). Cheers
  3. Thanks - yes I saw this but wondered if anyone had a link. No worries - I'll sign up to tamiya Base Cheers!
  4. Hi all, I just purchased an original leopard 1A4 tank 56002 on ebay and am looking to restore it but it has no manual and I can't find one online. The manuals page on here only has a couple of pages. Has anyone got one they can link me to? It's my first tank so I don't have the experience to do it without the manual. Thanks Richard
  5. Can anyone tell me if the sticker sheets in this re-release are identical to the originals, or if there are any differences (no matter how small).
  6. I got these in a job lot of tamiya parts but not sure what they are from. Free to collector (Wiltshire area) or I will send for price of postage/packaging.
  7. Yes these are the same wheels but in chrome. The offset will be the same too (note you have a choice of 2 offsets depending on which way around you have the rim). If you want a much more extreme offset you'll need the other type of 2-piece rim, the one without holes. They are the ones on the ta01 celica and skyline.
  8. Those are 2-piece wheels? Tamiya makes 2 kinds of 2-piece wheel rim. (4 if you count wide separately). The amount of offset you get depends on which side of the rim you attach the wheel centres to, so with the 2 types of wheel, you get 4 choices of offset. If I remember correctly, one kind gives you very wide offset or none (the ones with a solid rim with a circle going through all the screw holes), while the other gives you 2 medium-sized offsets (the kind with the 5 round holes). So maybe you can get more width with the other kind of 2-piece wheel rim, depending on what you've got at the moment.
  9. Large supermarkets in use UK often have plastic bag recycling receptacles. Tamiya does this already.
  10. any reason why you didnt paint the black sections in the light buckets? it looks so much more real with this little detail. it seems quite a few people have left it all chrome for some reason the colour is very nice though
  11. 3 words: Walker Texas Ranger!
  12. does anyone have any information about the other cars in that photo? calsonic primera and datsun?
  13. Kure nismo is 4wd ta03 not ff01 i guess that chassis list needs updating. Edit: so is the 58209 vectra for that matter
  14. as above please for 1:10 (58207 and 58220) cheers
  15. HI, im after an unpainted Honda nsx bodyshell - preferably in the uk cheers
