  1. I 3D print mine. The one with a black top is has the first few layers as a flexible rubber type to give it some grip onto the car chassis.
  2. I think this depends which era you grew up in but for me the Hornet and Lunchbox scream Tamiya.
  3. I don't think this will be ok. The plastic paint in Halfords is for 1:1 cars relatively hard plastics like bumpers and mirror covers not plastics that flex a lot like lexan. Halfords plastic paint is ok for shells like the lunchbox, monster beetle but not for painting when it's from the inside lexan types.
  4. I love my St.Dragon too. I ended up painting most of mine to avoid the decals. To be fair it wasn't a difficult masking job.
  5. I think the Titan is a hidden gem, I love it :-) https://tamico.de/Tamiya-Nissan-Titan-Racing-Truck-2WD-DT-02-Bausatz-58511
  6. I've popped some more braces on Ebay now too, if anybody would like the link it's here:- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/184455359159 Thanks, Pete :-)
  7. Hi All, I've got another batch of braces ready to go. 4 Frog type wrap around braces 7 Monster beetle/Blackfoot type (for the bumper) They are all in black this time. Before I list them elsewhere does anybody on here want a set? If you do drop me a PM or reply on this post and we can go from there. Thanks, Pete
  8. They're hotshot oval blocks on a Astral wheels from the super astute. I found the kit tyres useless on the grass I was running on. These seem like a great all round tyre or bashing. The fronts were a bit of a squish to get them on as they should be a bit wider but they went on ok and have stayed on without glue. The wheels are a direct fit, rear hex and front from a 2wd buggy with bearings in the wheels. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tamiya-Hot-Shot-Bigwig-Boomerang-Wild-One-Fox-9805111-19805111-Rear-Tyres-Tires/401109069269?epid=175897913&hash=item5d63f6add5:g:UloAAOSw-8paXsel
  9. I love this car, great basher and cheap at Tamico at 116 Euro. It comes fully ball raced too. I like it so much I've bought two, one to drive and one for show. Both of the shells are shown on the same chassis as I've still to build the second show chassis. https://tamico.de/Tamiya-Nissan-Titan-Racing-Truck-2WD-DT-02-Bausatz-58511
  10. I love these, great stance and cheap as you like. They don't get much love and nobody really seems to talk about them but I think they're a hidden gem. https://tamico.de/Tamiya-Nissan-Titan-Racing-Truck-2WD-DT-02-Bausatz-58511
  11. Finished my Lunchbox restoration, before I started it was a wreck but I've replaced so much I think it's just a new car.
  12. The supplied ECSs lipo compatible! It must now be clear to even Tamiya that nobody is going to use Life.
  13. Hi Rich T, Yeah I sold all I had and thought I'd pretty much serviced the demand for now. I was going to give it a little time and do a new run at some time in the future. If you would like one though I can do one (or more) for you no problem. I'll drop you a PM. Pete
  14. Thanks and yep I agree, its an odd looking one but I like the quirky looks. Looks better in the flesh than photos and the colour does seem to make a big difference. I thought the gun metal base colour would make the neon decals really stand out. :-)
  15. This is my fairly stock Zahhak, I really like the kit, lovely build.
