Been lurking on the site for a while and thought it was about time I posted. I've been into Tamiya since I was about 12 (now 33). Most of the cars I had at the time I bought of mates as being 12 at the time I couldn't afford new kits ! So I promised myself that when I was older I would buy the kits I wanted when I was a kid
I bought a few cars from ebay recently which has rekindled my Tamiya flame, I'll post these later.
I remembered that I had old Lunchbox and Pumpkin in bits and pieces at my parents house, which I found and both were wrecked. I sorted through the bits and found I had enough parts from both kits to make a running Lunchbox, as it was never going to be a restoration project I thought I would build it for my 7 year old son to thrash about.
Started with the shell (I was a A Team fan ) big crack on the roof. (syringe is for glue nothing else !)
Crack fixed and sanded ready for primer
First coat of colour (can you guess what it is yet?)
Made a stencil out of masking tape and added the green
Final stage, stickers added
More to follow ...
