    Got some more items in the last week. Starting to run of kits I want; first world problems.

    More assorted kits arrived, but no particular plans for anything right now.

    The "postman Brought Me" Thread

    I went on a bit of a spree this past Christmas, went on holiday for a while, and all this was waiting for me when I got back. I found the BMW in a South African hobby shop while there and stuffed it in my overweight luggage for the trip home.
  5. I don't normally look at the really vintage kits, as they're out of my price range, but what's the going rate on a NIB 58028 Pickup? There's one on eBay right now and it looks good, but the box appears to have water damage, and would be around a 6/10.
  6. Thanks; I also noticed that in the fourth photo, the front cab and rear are slightly different colors. I don't think it's the light, but I'm guessing one or both did not belong to the kit, they were stored separately, or I don't know WTH I'm talking about. I bought a used Juggernaut 1 and it turned out to be from a smoking home, without any mention of this in the ad. No offense to smokers, but holy cow it reeked! I had to aerate that thing for months for the smell to mostly go away.
  7. Wow; that looks great. I was alive in '82, but I was only building the 1/20 models I could afford with my paper route.
  8. Here's the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tamiya-Vintage-58028-Toyota-4x4-Pick-Up/392165952839?hash=item5b4ee98d47:g:hQYAAOSwydZcFQhd:rk:1:pf:1&frcectupt=true I could buy 10 semi trucks for that......

    The new Hilux CC-01.
  10. A seller in Korea is listing the Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC on eBay right now: the XB, kit, and bodyset. 93043, 93044, and 93045 in small quantities. A search for 'Tamiya WRC' or i20 brings them all up.

    Dumb question: it seems pretty clear from the thumbnails which are multiples, but are there any hiding that are multiples? Awesome collection BTW.

    Arrived from South Korea today.

    Got a new Asterion from Tamico: Which adds nicely to my pickup collection.
  14. Sorry, the kit version: 93044.
  15. I just got an email from them after the first saying it's been cancelled, this one asking for a bit extra for shipping, about $20USD, so I paid. My order for the kit no longer says cancelled, but just 'pending'. Thank you for shopping on Gmarket. Your insufficient amount of difference between the estimated and actual Worldwide Shipping fee is ₩21,530. Please make this payment as soon as possible to be shipped out. If you have any further inquiries, please contact to Customer Service Center. We will try our best to serve you in all ways possible. Thank you.
  16. I recently purchased one from Gmarket using PayPal and intended to ship to Virginia in the U.S., but I also got the email today saying that they could not ship the kit version internationally. Before the email, everything went okay: shipping, U.S. address, PayPal, but I guess not somehow.

    Received my Lancer VII. Which now completes my EVO Lancer collection (I think).

    Arrived yesterday, and it wasn't cheap, but that's what I get for getting back into the hobby 20 years late
  19. I'd love to keep this, but it's not going to happen: http://www.ebay.com/itm/161158869400?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  20. I've bought a used Juggernaut 2 and as many are, the bumper holder parts J1 and J2 are broken. I looked to substitute the TXT parts, but they're a bit different, without leaf springs. I've been looking at getting them online for some time, but without success. I also noted that some after market companies make aluminum versions, but no longer. I got back into RC late. Does anyone by chance make or have a line where I can get some replacements? Without trying to make the TXT versions work, I'm not sure if there are other options.

    Juggernaut J parts replacement

    Yes, that should work! I saw these before, but I never noticed the parts might be separable. Thanks for the link.

    Which Tamiya Buggy Is The Best Runner

    Are there issues with the DB-02 that would preclude getting it over the DB-01? Is anyone looking at the incoming DB-01RR? Some details are now on Tamiya USA's page.
  23. I'm looking for the unbuilt body set or complete kit of the Corolla WRC in 1/8 or 1/10. If it's 1/8, I have for trade the Porsche 911 GT1 body set or the Esso Ultron Tiger Supra body set. I'm open to negotiation, and located in the US.
  24. If anyone has some Tamiya Mountaineer decals in good shape, I'll pay good money for them (I'm in the States). Tamiya item 9495145 for Tamiya item 58111. Thanks!
  25. Hello, I've returned to modeling since the mid-80's and I had a couple questions about finishing the trucks. I have the R620, MAN 25 along with the Shell tanker and Maersk container trailer. I've seen the quite awesome finish on the trucks on this site but I wanted to know what people do after painting, since the semis have so many details & raised edges: does everyone use the fine grits and then polish? Also, does anyone have tips for applying the larger stickers, such as the Maersk logos? I can just see that getting the decal onto the ridged container is not going to go well for me. I've heard that Windex, soapy water, and even a heat gun/hair dryer might work, but I'm hesitant to try them unless I get another set of decals. Thanks in advance.......
