  1. Have been absent for quite a while. Totally gutted just saw this - unbelievable to realise Jim has left the building . Many fond conversations with him over the years both of us mad bikers we would often talk motorbikes. Everybody has a favourite from Jim’s collection - for me it was the Rothmans Rough Rider. Just WoW sad really sad news ! Vale big fella !
  2. I’ve got a spare Sonic Fighter kit , but postage from Australia to the UK would be a killer
  3. Yet in Tasmania the Roo’s are that big apparently they will lift you car

  5. I too love my F201 it was the first kit I built after getting back into the hobby - always wanted a Formula 1 ever since I saw them in the 1980’s Tamiya Catalogue. Noticed the kits that are for sale are selling for mega bucks now ! Think I picked mine up back in the day for under AUS $100-
  6. Found an Hirobo Lancia Rally 44B NIB a couple of years ago . Pretty happy with this find 😃
  7. Your old man rue had a keen eye for great and classic cars ! Some nice old school cars there as “H” said every collector here would be interested in at least one of those models , just shows you what a nice slice of history you have there . They would look great rebuilt and on display in honour of you late father and you would get that warm fuzzy feeling every time you walked past them , time what is time we all have our own version of time and how much we have - 30 minutes to 1 hour spent on these over time and you would have a great collection to display . We can all find time for things we truly believe in and enjoy . If it were me and those were my late fathers , it’s not rocket science to see he loved his hobby - I would keep them display them guaranteed one day you would regret selling them . Thanks for sharing !
  8. Half the people here collect vintage cars / kits - maybe more than half . Both are collectable cars - even with the re release boom cars of this vintage are still quite sought after. Nothing like an original . Either sell them as they are as an ongoing project or clean them up a bit , if you do put the $$ back into them you want to make sure you re-coupe them when sold . Good luck !
  9. Yes it my Shed / Garage it’s 10 metres long X 6 metres wide. No home brew setup as I don’t drink , it has a fireplace for those chilly days we get here every now and then - decked out with a sound system and a tv of course. The tools are on mobile islands depending on the job at hand. I installed the fluro lighting / strip lighting and power points myself - nothing worse than poor lighting , must have many good lights and power sockets throughout. As mentioned earlier by a member it’s not uncommon in Australia for almost every household that has the space to have a decent sized shed or man cave - you have lofts in the UK and Europe the US has basements and garages , I guess we have big sheds / garages down under . 😃
  10. Great idea ! TC is an international club - an international doco would be fitting. Filled the form out - in Australia .
  11. I’ve got a whole sonic fighter kit for sale - but a bit pricey to post to the UK That one in the link looks cracked makes me wonder if it’s brittle .
  12. Matt still has some of the latest ones for sale ( I think) - not generically painted all painted as per the customers specs - hence they take a while to be delivered but well worth the wait . Have 4 now luv them ! The last 2 are done in my daughters likeness.

    Academy Kits !

    Scored these 3 Academy kits NiB today for 150 euros from a guy in Antwerp - met him at the train station to pick up the kits and catch my next train to Dusseldorf . Long way to come to get 3 kits Australia to Belgium - but iam on a European vacation.
  14. I’ve been in the UK for the last 3 days and I’ve never slept so bad ! its after 2am and I’m still wide awake - I’ve tried everything even walked 6 miles to Tower Hill yesterday and yet here iam still awake ! It the body clock I think and a different environment plus different seasons .
  15. Hi Jim . The 2 Wendy’s are modeled after my 2 daughters each Wendy has their name painted on the back of the hat . To tell you the truth nothing planned maybe something special later on down the track . Know I just had to get them while the opportunity existed.
  16. My 2 Ladies arrived today Wild Wendy 3 with Certificates . Took almost a year but well worth the wait , you can’t rush perfection! Very happy with Matt’s work amazing detail . That makes 4 Wendy’s you can never have too much of a good thing !
  17. Can’t wait for this kit to be released ! Awesome idea !
  18. Umm so I’m guessing this type of Supreme is not a Pizza 🙄
  19. Gee how creative Tamiya -good to see the latest from your trashy look line !
