  1. Sorry if this has been posted before but I just thought some of you may be interested to see this, have never seen it mentioned before that they may have licensed a game (unreleased), its been doing the rounds on some retro gaming sites and the consensus seems to be the it is a real unreleased game. http://www.ebay.com/itm/TAMIYA-RACING-NINT...-UNKNOWN-N64-GA ME-/260952979356#ht_5169wt_1396
  2. Hi that would be fine, I would take it to the postoffice and just charge you the actual cost they quote for shipping,its already well packed in a double box.
  3. If anyone is interested this is for sale on ebay now, http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...=STRK:MESELX:IT
  4. As per the title I have a complete nib fav this is a new in box built up from collecting new in packet spare parts. the kit is omplete down to the last screw and is all completely new and unused on the sprues etc. Most of the original fav parts packets are present with the fav header cards and the rest of the parts are made up of the tamiya yellow car and buggy spares bags. The only used parts are the wheels and tires as I was unable to find new ones. They are the proper fav ones and seem to have only had very light use. A quick rub down and paint and they will be perfect. The original box instructions and new in packet decals are also included. Just make me an offer. I can provide lots ,ore pics on request. Thanks Joe
  5. Thanks for the suggestions are you using a charge bag?
  6. Hi all first time I have posted in a long time. Just looking for some advice on moving to LIPO (I am in the uk so if people can recommend products in the uk that would be great) I want to move to LIPO as im fed up with al the problems of NIMH cells. Im running a df03 and a top force as my main cars and these are used with my three year old son just for bashing and having fun in the woods etc. Both cars run tamiya bz and rz motors so nothing to extreme. I just want some cheap easy to look after lipo packs and a charger that will fit these cars that will give me and my son some decent run-times with the cars. (three year olds and short run times don't mix) From reading the other posts I have made a list of two lipo 7.4v packs a low voltage cut off alarm a charging bag and lipo mains charger. I want to keep things safe when using these packs as although my son will be well away from them charging I don't want anything that could explode while in the car) (one thing in the summer I intend to get a tamtech hotshot or fox I would like to be able to either get a lipo for these if possible or at least get a new LIPO charger that will also charge the tamtech packs. Sorry for the long list but your suggestions really will be appreciated. I need to keep the cost down but dont mind investing a little more to kit some quality equipment that will last us a few years. Thanks in advance.
  7. Hanants (search google) in the uk have had it for quiet a while i agree its great stuff
  8. Thanks loaded i have taken a look at there site and noted they sell them branded as a "big pack" if you find some wear in europe that sells these (or the uk) could you let me know, thanks.
  9. I would have to say i go where the price takes me. i always used to use modelsport for kits and local for parts but now with ebay and online stores like stella i can normaly get two kits for what i was paying for one. however it seems that there is a change happening a noticed modelsport are selling the scania for around the same as the same kit plus postage from hong kong. Now i know which ill be buying. however the mfu is still stupidly expensive from them. I wonder whether the hobby company supplied the scania at a fair price or they are buying them from hong kong in bulk?
  10. Thanks for posting glad to see some others made there first steps into rc with these great little cars. Here is a photo of mine on the day i got it. http://www.tamiyaclub.com/pictureframe.asp...006212921_1.jpg
  11. I have purchased a few and can vouch that they are excellent quality and were very well packed thanks.
  12. Hi wondering if anyone can help. Im currently in the process of getting together all the bits to build a Tamiya Yamaha round the world yacht (if i can ever find one as they are so hard to find if you have one let me know) and have discovered it is impossible to get the crew for it anywhere. I have seen it mentioned before that they were based off a existing Tamiya 1/20 pit crew set. After a little research i am 99% certain its the Tire changing pit crew as the posses seem to match up. This is the yacht crew http://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.a...366&id=1425 And this is the pit crew ( dead link to auction i won hope ok?) ://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=320231935260&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=011 What i am hoping is someone can provide me with a couple of better photos of the crew so i can make sure i get there poses right and the paint scheme correct. Any help would be much appreciated.
  13. I couldn't agree more it puts in perspective the sheer scale of there static model business and what a craze the mini 4wds were on several occcasions. I think i first read it about three years ago and have read it again once each year seems to make a good read for this time of year and i always pick up some new insight with each read.
  14. Hi i have sent you a message about this as i am interested in buying it. Cheers
  15. Yep its an excellent book im surprised more people on here haven't read it as its a fascinating insight into the company. Im confused i read it as it was his father who started, perhaps its something that was lost in the translation from japanese to english.
