    Hi. Thanks for this post. Like you I enjoy the builds and I always seem to struggle with the painting as its my least favourite part of an build. My nearest RC shop is about miles away , on Saturday I visited them to find they do not stock Tamiya poly paint, so I opted for an alternative brand. I should have done a little more research but I was hoping to get my paint on before this weekend. I fancy a Beetle , not sure if it will ne Blitzer, standard or rally yet though. Please keep posting updates of your progress.

    South Yorkshire Meets?

    Just back from holiday, read your post and requested as well
  4. Hi. I always fancied a WW, never got one until the WW2 then built it to standard spec used it a couple of times in the garden got bored with RC so sold it on. Since then been in and out of the hobby a couple of times. I have lunchbox that is going into its third colour of paint having been pulled out of the loft last week. My Scania needs finishing. But I am looking for another project. Yours have inspired me, love the WW garage.

    South Yorkshire Meets?

    Hi. I have not been to Rother Valley Country Park for years, I was wondering if they have a good area that could be used? On a positive I have been able to get some paint on my LB shell. Also , been looking at other peoples builds and ideas for another project. I'm thinking my Scania is going to have to wait in bits for a while.

    Truck meets

    Hello. I am thinking about buying a Tamiya R/C truck, if I do I will add the MFU so my investment will be £500-£600. Having built many of the cars, and 3 tanks, I know the pleasure that is obtained from the build. But with a truck once its built its fine to run it around the house a few times, and that can get boring, I don't want to end up on a shelf covered in layers of dust. So my question is who uses theirs, do owners meet up and if so where? Thanks everyone.
  12. Be great to see photo. thanks
