  1. Bingo! Signed out and signed back in again and this time it seems to have reset whatever setting was causing the problem and I'm back in business Cheers
  2. Hi Twinset Thanks for the assistance, however I can't even access the pages you've screenshotted and cannot find the toggle button anywhere else on either the mobile site or desktop/classic view Sadly the forum has become unusable for me and I can't find any way to resolve it
  3. P.S. the blue "Tamiya Club Forums" button is faded out and does not work and the same goes for the button/tab below it that says "Site Sponsor Forums" or similar Vintage discussions and Rerelease discussions show up for a second then are replaced/hijacked by links to site sponsors and there is no way to get into the vintage and rerelease forums to browse them - it's got me beat.........
  4. What's happened to the TamiyaClub forums?? It's been a good while since I was last on here and now it seems the forum is really hard to navigate - to the point I can't enjoy using it at all or get the basic functions I want out of it!! Maybe I'm just being dumb but where on earth have the bog standard basic categories of forum chat gone?? I don't have an option to select VINTAGE DISCUSSIONS or RE-RELEASE DISCUSSIONS like I used to have??!! Am I really missing something simple here or is the format totally different? I can see all the links to Fusion Hobbies and Stella etc. and who the most recently joined member is or who's birthday it is today but I can't seem to easily access the forum content I want to Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Cheers
  5. I just bought some original Falcon decals and a TBG repro body for my Falcon, it's in decent nick but the body is tatty and split between the shock towers so I'm looking forward to getting this thing nearly mint again. NWarty - I agree, the Falcon oozes 80's styling and really is a decent vintage runner - front end brace and better dog bones and you're away
  6. I got lucky a year or two ago and bought the display model Boomerang from a ModelZone store that was closing down......mint, never run nor seen the rain....... £40 (!!!!) All it needed was rebuilding with bearings throughout and the oil shocks setting up properly though i did feel a bit miffed about missing out on doing the paint job and decals Boomer is a great car and well worth a spot in any Tamiya collection in my opinion!
  7. Sweet lord this is exciting news!!!! I've been occupied all summer with my other hobbies and not done or read anything Tamiya related for a good few months.....BIGWIG!!! Just feel bad that I've not refurbed the old Bigwig basher i bought two years ago (!!) - it has a Technigold and spare brushes and i own a repro body and original, rareas hens teeth, Decals. Kept stalling coz those original decals on a repro body just didn't seem like the right thing to do, hallelujah i can soon buy a proper re-re Tamiya shell to stick those NOS decals on!!!
  8. All I know is I ain't selling mine!!
  9. Yeah but these go on just fine I thought I may have to glue them but they are a snug fit and don't slip at all
  10. Team CRP 4239 2" mini spike tyres are on the front of my Madcap, they fit just fine, look pretty much like a full set with the proper rear tyres and are cheap and on ebay regularly, worth a try if you want the spiked tyres all round look
  11. Looks like that's that problem solved then!
  12. Funny you mention that, I've converted a Boomerang to a Super Sabre and the red shocks are indeed darker than the red steering knuckles, rear damper mount and other red bits
  13. Looks very Bigwig to me I don't really know Kyosho much but I'd definitely say that that's their Bigwig Even looks like the chassis takes an 8.4v stick pack?
  14. Is the general consensus on here that they will or they won't re-re the KingCab and/or the Hilux Monster Racer?
