  1. I have 14 Tamiya models right now. 2 are going to be sold. 2 are 100% finished. 8 are mostly finished but need small jobs to complete them. 2 need stripping down and rebuilding, 1 has been waiting 6 years the other just 4 years ๐Ÿ˜‚
  2. Ordered a new charger cable for the FAV runner TX ๐Ÿ’ฅ
  3. Iโ€™ve owned 4 WOโ€™s and 2 FAVโ€™s and the TC advice is always consistent. Bearings Steel pinion Torque tuned motor FAV upgrade the shocks to Wild One shocks. Have fun ๐Ÿ‘ I found the silver can too slow, but I do still use Nimh batteries, but I find the Torque tuned just right.
  4. Quick bump on this before I tidy it up and put it on eBay. The charger cable has now been sourced for the T/X. Selling as I have 2 FAVโ€™s and my children prefer the look of our Blitzer Beetle for the beach.
  5. Recently built, run twice , comes with ESC , Servo, box and left over spares. Light scuffs to wheels, gearbox and roof, otherwise as new. If you need radio gear, batteries or chargers I have lots spare. Selling as I have 2 Wild Ones I never use.
  6. Hi Busdriver, Yes for sale still, sorry been a bit slow with the pictures ๐Ÿ˜‰. Iโ€™ll pm some over to you. All the best Simon
  7. A couple more photos from this morning. My wife has said that without doubt we can have this on display, high praise indeed ๐Ÿ‘
  8. The WW is absolutely my favourite box art and the WW2 holds many fond memories of family time @ Centre Parcs with my 3 daughters. I bought this model in good shape 5 years ago for ยฃ175 delivered, I then picked up the missing or broken parts and radio gear bit by bit as they turned up on eBay or TC and then it was just a question of when... So anyway 3 house moves, 3 job changes, a divorce, a marriage and 5 years later this one is finally finished. I did sell about 75% of my Tamiya kit but this one was always going to be a keeper and now with a massive thanks to @jonboy1 not only is it finished, it is ready to run, beautifully restored and detailed. JJโ€™s skill and patience is amazing, I love everything about this car, it has little touches that very much make it mine as well. I canโ€™t thank you JJ enough for your kindness and generosity. Time for some pics-
  9. Fitted an Ariel straw to my WW ๐Ÿ’ฅ And took some pictures in the garden whilst it was bright. Next weeks episode....
  10. I just keep wrestling with the urge to buy more models, the bay of plenty is very tempting ๐Ÿคช
  11. Went to the PO sending off the last spare WW parts to @Badcrumble ๐Ÿ‘
  12. An Ariel straw for my WW. Thanks @Dirt-540 ๐Ÿ‘
  13. Itโ€™ll happen @jonboy1 I promise ๐Ÿ‘ Had to work Saturday and then drive to Wales and back on Sunday, hopefully next weekend is a little more Tamiya friendly ๐Ÿ˜†
  14. Adjusted the steering on my WW2 and found a home for the small amount of spares I have left over from the SWB WW restoration. Iโ€™m going to try and not get too distracted by other Tamiya and finish the WW2 ๐Ÿ˜Š
  15. Well itโ€™s been a while, but tonight I took apart and reassembled some of the rolling chassis to adjust the steering as it was meandering off to the left. Time to settle on a motor and ESC next, the plan was a Sports Tuned but I need to think tactically about which motor/ESC combos can go in the cars I have left to finish ideally using what I have in stock ๐Ÿ‘
  16. A bump before they go on eBay tomorrow. Happy to take an offer or split the items.
  17. For me itโ€™s pretty easy- King Cab 2014 Kyosho Beetle But probably not for a while yet, quite a lot of kit and a few cars to move along before I buy anything else and a couple to finish off and enjoy before laying out any more cash on rc ๐Ÿ‘
  18. I spent the weekend admiring my restored SWB WW, amazing attention to detail and finish. I canโ€™t thank you enough @jonboy1 it is superb ๐Ÿ’ฅ Will post some pictures at the weekend ๐Ÿ˜Š
  19. I spent the weekend admiring my restored SWB WW, amazing attention to detail and finish. I canโ€™t thank you enough @jonboy1 Iโ€™ll post pictures soon ๐Ÿ‘
  20. The drivers head and arm need sticking back on. One of the front lights needs the screw tightening. The rear canopy has very light cracks in the rear apron to touch in.
  21. There are bearings to at least the wheels. The motor has been mildly uprated. The battery is new and comes with a charger. It runs and drives nicely around the garden. The tyres are in excellent condition.
  22. Iโ€™ve have Wild One that Iโ€™m needs rehoming. Boxed, ESC, run twice, almost perfect still. Iโ€™ll add photos a bit later. ยฃ99 collected or +ยฃ10 for UK delivery.
