    Hmm, that is not any different from the original... Strange thing that they call it a TA-02T then actually.

    *** Dissatisfied with Tamiya petition ***

    I just got a quick look at this thread, but how will this work for guide books actually? Also there are still pretty some websites having the manuals uploaded actually...

    Have you already been able to find out in what way this TA-02T differs from a regular TA-02 F-150. Is is wider or...?

    How To Paint A Sand Scorcher Right?

    Yes, that is the way to do. The lightest colors always go first on a hardshell (Y)

    Blackfoot Re-re ?

    A Monster beetle would me more logical IMO, as they already have the SS body so the body is also already being made... Let's hope for it

    Wild Willy 2 Hop-ups

    For the Wild Willy I am making aluminum grilles that fit the WWI and WWII, which can have pretty some abuse. I can take a pic of mine installed on my WWII for you today if you want to.

    Jerobee - Vintage Rc Car!

    Never heard of that cars, or seen any of them. I like it pretty much
  9. I hope to have the prototype laying here within 2 weeks. If it's allright I will be ready to sell them. They will be made out of 2mm aluminum, eventually I will offer the option of plain aluminum, red anodizing or black anodizing. However the anodizing options are not completely sure yet. I will update this thread off course when there is more news to tell about this part. If you are interested in the part just put it here, and eventually contact me through my website. That way I will keep you updated with things like the price etc. At the contact form click pre-orders as subject, off course you don't have to buy the part as there isn't even a price yet But that way I can manage it easily in my e-mail client. More info here:

    Monster Beetle/ Blackfoot Aluminum G1 Part Coming Soon

    Well, your choice to anodize them, personally I like the look of raw metal I am working with Dutch machinists, when I know a good one in the UK with a good price who can also do CNC'ing I might be interested in contacting that guys

    I have been looking for them also lately. But they are discontinued... Hard to find indeed...
  17. After some time I finally got a price quote on my new wheel design. After the succes my white landy wheel design had that RC4WD is selling now, I started to think about a way to make even more realistic scale steel wheels. The solution came in the form of a 2 piece design, milled out of real steel just like the 1:1's have. So they can also rust like real ones do. The price of a set (4 wheels) will be $80,- ex. shipping There are also no screws included (m2 screws needed). The point of the 2 piece design is also that the wheel nut is covered by the centercap. So no ugly unscale nuts anymore. I hope to have a prototype laying here real soon. Only thing is that I need to sell at least 20 sets. Is there any interest of you guys in this wheel? one thing to add the holes have more rounded corners, as otherwise the milling was not possible.
