  1. Great work @Yoshimitsu! You set a high standard.
  2. Thanks @Juhunio. Yes its the L&L one, I would say its one of the better ones.
  3. Bit more progress with the 205 T16. Just waiting for paint to dry on the mud flaps and tow hook before fitting. Then have the fun of getting the large spoiler to fit on the rear. Still a long way to go..........
  4. That looks perfect @Yoshimitsu ! Looking forward to seeing this progress
  5. Some lens film from AMain Hobbies for the Peugeot 205 T16. Thanks to @Juhunio for pointing me in the right direction. And a used TA03R from eBay, that ended up being quite a bargain. Bodyshell is past it but chassis is in good condition and came with some useful spares
  6. Thanks @Yoshimitsu I'm going to try some magnetic body mounts for that reason
  7. Here you go. Still got lots to do with adding some detail. Its currently sitting on a TL01 I had spare, but will probably get changed. Not 100% sure about the wheels. I have some fine mesh for the cut outs and some lens film for the lights, so I can add some LED's. 3D printed some wing mirrors and large hex's to throw the wheels out about more.
  8. I have one of these amongst many of the L&L shells in my stash. Currently working on their Peugeot 205 T16. Interesting to see how you get on. Like you say, dangerously thin in places, some thought needs to go into the preparation for sure. Decals are so so, and need some care when adding some heat to get them to adhere to curved areas. Window surrounds always seem way to thick too. Big fan of rally cars from the 80's too
  9. Looking nice @Juhunio ! Can i ask what you used for the headlights? I have some builds coming up that I want to tint the front and rear light lenses.
  10. Looking forward to seeing the 6R4 evolve. Got the same ControlFreax version only last week with the Belga decals. Are you sticking with that livery or doing something different?
  11. Found a bit of time this week to have a crack at one of the many Team C bodyshells I seem to have acquired and always put off starting. It was an education in pre planning. With the use of several images from the web, I have nearly finished the Honda Accord PIAA, this is sitting on the recent FF01 from eBay, which came up really well after a clean up. Need to find a spoiler for the rear, the one supplied is lexan and very basic. No wing mirrors supplied, found some from a previous build which fit the bill. Window masks were too small and needed additional masking. Cut lines poor but overall not a bad 'copy' of the Tamiya original. Considering the cost is close, if not the same as some Tamiya bodyshells, I would have liked a full set of better quality decals and all accessories included, but you have limited options if you want to go down this route. Decals, not a patch on Tamiya. Had to be really careful applying some heat to adhere to curves as the decal would start to melt, you can see on some of the decals on black areas of the shell, white marks under the surface. Some decals missing, different sizes etc. I worry how long they will stay in place, i have had to re stick the window surround already. Started with the black areas Then hit it with the white You can see the white areas under the decal EPSON on the rear, were the decal has started to react to the heat Overall, I'm happy and it may even encourage me to do another at the weekend if SWMBO lets me I will add some photos to the RC Gallery thread once its completed.
  12. Some stunning looking cars with great paint jobs! Tamiya - please take notice
  13. Not delivered but picked up, latest eBay purchase. In really good condition, hardly any use, but no Vectra bodyshell. Will be stripped/washed/rebuilt ready for when i get round to finishing a bodyshell for it May be time to face 1 of the many Team C bodyshells i have, thinking Honda Accord PIAA ....
  14. 3D printed some TurboMac wheels and rally driver heads. Minor cleaning up to do and they should finish OK once painted. Wheels are only for show so not too bothered about how strong they will be.
  15. Love the fact body sets are now coming in a box with some great artwork, rather than the not so protective bag. Some MST wheels for a future build and a Nismo GT-R kit.
  16. I've got quite a few of the L&L body's, mainly the rally ones. Every time i go to start one, i look at the shell, try to work out the cut lines and put it down to do another day. Shame really, would hate to add up how much i have spent on dust collectors Just looking at my collection now, i have completed 1 out of the 8 i have and that's the 935 Porsche, turned out OK but the stickers were a royal pain and slightly undersized.
  17. I've always struggled with ABS printing and keeping the heat up to stop the print lifting from the bed. Well done for getting these printed and looking so good
  18. Its a really nice build. I have the Lancia Stratos, Porsche 911 and Datsun 510 bodyshells brand new, waiting to be done. They are all stunning to look that's for sure!
  19. Thanks @Nicadraus Its a HPI True Ten Cup Racer kit.
  20. Had this in my collection for some years and finally got around to building it. HPI Cup Racer - True Ten scale Datsun 240Z. Sorry its not Tamiya but makes a nice change to build something else. Lots of options in the kit for shock position, wheelbase and wheel offset. Just need to add a motor, which I will do tonight. More pics in the RC Gallery
  21. Yes, Kleinkram are very good. Me recent order got to the UK in 2 days! faster than ordering from a UK seller in most cases. I've used them15+ times and always been very good. Tamico, again very good service and stock.
  22. @SimTechRC Thanks. FF01, previous Ebay purchase. Its in really good condition after a wash and rebuild.
  23. Managed to progress a bit further with this, adding the panel lines between meetings. Just need to paint the cockpit.
