  1. Hi James, I can help with some parts for this. I dont have the main chassis any more, but i have the axle parts. I will dig them out and get some pictures over to you. J
  2. The ones on the left are built, but everyting from the middle across to the right is NIB. I might even get around to finishing the room one day. J
  3. Hi Clobbo, I spent a few hundred to get new old stock plastic parts, and cleaned or reconditioned the metal parts as required. The biggest expense is going to be an original body. I have seen these advertised for anything up to £800 for a new old stock boxed set. Ridiculous i know, but i will only use an original. Its the same with the Celica, although not as expensive, i want an original new body. J
  4. My most expensive purchase in one go was actually a collection that i purchased from a gentleman who contacted me. The lot came to just short of £3000. I had to buy the missus something nice after... J
  5. I will be 50 this year. People say its ok to be in touch with your inner child. I am my inner child J
  6. I got the 959 as a complete car, but after restoring the chassis, the body was just too far gone to be of any use. I have seen a couple of new shells around, but have missed out on them. The Celica is virtually a new build, i spent some time collecting all the new old stock parts, and replaced just about everything. I have a couple of original used body shells, but i would rather find a new old stock item and do it right. J
  7. I have just completed the restorations of my Porsche 959, and Toyota celica GrB chassis. They have been totaly stripped and rebuilt using only original new old stock parts. The 959 has its original speed control with its melted balloon type bag, but i left this detail, as it is original. I have several Celica bodies, although none are up to the standard that i am looking for, but i dont have a 959 body at all, so if anyone might be able to help with either, send me a message. J
  8. Pretty certain that would be the re release version. The originals had a plastic tube aerial that pushed into an aluminium holder on the chassis, and the reciever wire ran up through the middle. J
  9. I have a collection of NOS vintage spares and decals, and it really pains me to open them and use them. Once they are gone, they are gone forever. J
  10. The shelving units i am using at the moment, are from Amazon. They are metal frames with wood shelves, and they are the perfect depth to put a kit box with about 1/2 an inch either side. I can get two boxes side by side and one stood up on its side, or i can get 4 completed cars side by side on each shelf with one accross behind. Once the hobby room build is complete, i will keep them for storage, and the cars will all be on purpose built shelving. J
  11. I have a 1/8 Stockmaster project that i'm never going to get around to. It is complete, but dimantled. I will post some pics for you. J
  12. If i had his money, my collection would be a lot bigger! J
  13. I'd love to arrange a club weekend somewhere, where we can get together as a group and have running sessions and a good laugh. J
  14. 😟 That would be like loosing a body part for me. 😄 J
