  1. Anodized paint colours are supposed to be backed with black.....BUT....it is up to the modeller to choose what effect they want. Generally speaking backing with a light colour lifts the front colour (visible colour of the model) and backing with a dark colour has the opposite effect. I have done both (lighter and darker) and it is interesting to observe the differences. I find backing with black creates a "candy" effect and backing with silver (for example) creates a more metallic effect. Just my thoughts on the subject.
  2. Thanks bud.....maybe we should ask the owner to make an allowance this one time?......lol
  3. Yes I took it down because I wanted to edit it.....but the rules say I can't re-enter. Sad but true.
  4. Great stuff! I will film my run when I get round to it.....so subscribe and hit the notification button ......lol
  5. Use 30% Nitro buggy fuel......cars generally use a lot higher nitro than aircraft. I think it helps them because the throttle gets used a lot driving cars, but I fly flat out almost all of the time and hardly use throttle really when I fly. The carb is the Jetstream which is superb. And yes it is for aircraft. I have over 10 Irvine engines and they are wonderful engines. In aircraft I use the principle of up to 0.40 cu in use 10% nitro, over 0.40 cu in use 5% nitro. Smaller engines need nitro as each intake of fuel is a smaller measure, and thus the nitro really helps the fuel burn well in smaller amounts.
  6. The only reason I haven't run it yet is because I haven't had the time.....I will run it occasionally.
  7. Not yet...I have only just completed it hedge. The restoration is on my YT channel....here is Part 1.... Feel free to subscribe 😁👍
  8. Good Luck hedge..... I recently completed a restoration of a Mark 2......and I am about to start to restore a Mark 1
  9. Are they Holiday Buggy rear tyres?.....they look great on the DT03!!
  10. Not as miffed as I was when I had my entire channel taken down!! I will dig the videos out and reupload them over the next few days hopefully.
  11. I will reupload it for you.......do you have any part you want to see or do you want to see all of it. I am Simon Webb on YouTube
  12. I have subscribed and Good Luck! I also have a You Tube Channel again.....where I do RC cars....RC aircraft....and Plastic Modelling! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmMMTXp7gskEeZj7uCHo9qA
  13. Kev the Rev is right. I am currently restoring one for the first time. The Marvelous Mardave Marauding Marauder
  14. The Hornet is an upgraded version of the Grasshopper. You get oil shocks (rear) and a different way of fixing the rear gearbox to the chassis at the front of the casing. The other differences you already know about, with the Hornet body being made of Lexan instead of plastic in the 'hopper's case.
  15. Interesting release..... ....I might have to change my name to "SuperDragonRacer 1971" ...lol I wonder why they have included "storm" in the name? I will ignore it in protest! lol
  16. Interesting release..... ....I might have to change my name to "SuperDragonRacer 1971" ...lol
  17. I think it is a very good idea. Algorithms in YT tend to suggest like-minded videos successfully enough, but the 3D printed archives and possibilities are a minefield for me personally. I tend to "ask taffer".........lol But I am impressed with the number of people that suggest things on YT to me that I have never heard of before. If there is ever a video I really like on YT Tamiya related, I used 4k Downloader (free) and it saves it to my external drives. Designing improved parts is not my forte at this stage, but if I ever got into 3D printing I would give it a go because I have a lot of experience with AutoCAD through my job.
  18. That will be a purchase for sure!.........looking forward to what else is in store......
  19. Yes I noticed that. A shame we can't get the original re-released with improvements. The Opel Ascona as well....even though the body was a bit stubby. Plus I would love the Lancia Rally to be re-released on the ORV chassis.....easy to do!!!
  20. Tamiyablog is saying this is getting re-released!?! .....Really pleased if this is true!!!!!
  21. In addition to re-releasing the classics that haven't yet been re-released, I wish Tamiya would continue with the "white-box" animal-themed cars...... So many animals not covered yet....Coyote.....Wolf.....Panther.....Eagle....the list goes on... BUT....they must have their own logos....like Hornet...or Fox......etc.... It could be done Tamiya.....
  22. Yes I love that Mustang!!! They seem to have done a very good job on the body! I just have 10 x TT02 NIBS here...with various bodies on .....lol....a new TT-03 chassis would have been nice lol
  23. I fancy a Hotshot 2 and the 959! I say it every year...so why change lol BUT....I fancy an Agrios at Tamico in Germany.....300 Euros now!
