  6. Hi everyone, Finished my 'birthday Hopper' all ready for its place on my shelf (1st one) ☺️ what do folks do about the insides to tidy the build up ? As she is a none runner nothing installed inside apart from our 'Frank' currently waiting on new Frank as I made a mess of the supplied one 🀯

  8. Question for ya, Do I paint my 'Candy Green' body for my Grasshopper ? As we know it comes green but I am thinking of getting the Tamiya paint 🎨 and spraying it....she's going to be a shelf Queen πŸ‘‘ anyway
  9. Hi everyone....hope we are all staying safe πŸ‘ updates on the 'birthday' Hopper .... Obviously really enjoyed building the basic kit πŸ™‚ really good fun looking at how far RC cars have come since my original 'Hopper' back in 1984 But I made a couple of 'boo boo's 😳 yes I spent hours painting the lettering on the tyres only to find that when I built the wheels up all the white lettering cracked 😬 I now remember someone mentioning that on the forum πŸ™ˆ second was the classic not remembering that the front and rear screws for the wheels are different lengths .....it's all part of the fun...I guess got bodyshell to paint 🎨 and decals to apply probably not going to run this build as it's a 'shelfie' 😍...
  10. Birthday 'Hopper' still not made the production line 😳πŸ˜₯
