  1. The battered re-re scorcher I bought to use the chassis to make my fake ranger got its body stripped with de-solv it. then repaired and filled and primed and painted. Finished up today. Running body for the scorcher my TS- smoke can failed on me and I ruined the window so had to go full stealth. Turned out ok for a basher
  2. Restored hummer from @J@mes Cleaned ball raced, ESC, block tyres upgraded prop shaft. Body stripped repaired and sprayed with gunmetal in gloss for more of a urban cruiser look
  3. Nice. I fancy shortening all my servo leads at build time. Would you mind sharing what you eventually go for in terms of plugs/crimper? oh and to make you feel better my vernier was £8!!😂
  4. Finished the scorcher. Finally. now to do the running body.......
  5. Unmasked the scorcher few small masking failures but overall pretty happy so far
  6. Is this an injora body? What chassis have you got it on?wheelbase looks great. I have one and been wondering what to do with it. Quality for the price is impressive.
  7. For me: 1. Obvious but re-release the last SRB- it’s so easy all the parts are there- forget the Ford sponsorship- they would make money 2. Blazing blazer as per prev posts as an entry level 3 speed 3. Scale bodies ++ particularly for the CC02 chassis to really give it some presence in the scaler world (jeep jl, land cruiser, raptor, even performance SUV like Uris would be fun!) 4. as rtr is taking over for bashing the market for Tamiya is really the builders. We like quality and engineering and realism. There is no excuse not to have full ball race and oil shocks in every kit
  8. Following with interest. i have one I have been waiting to build because I can’t decide on paint! found this which is a bit more black but by no means civilian i was thinking something like the BMW carbon black which is a lovely pearlescent blue-black or perhaps the Italian red TS-8 for something way different
  9. sorry to hijack but @Charles M can you measure the length of the body mounts D11 as they are NLA as far as I can see and i am going to have to modify some others. Chassis idea looks very interesting..
  10. Thanks! Saw your thread. Am following with interest. I’ll start the cleaning then order some bits
  11. I went from this To this Pretty good condition other than a fractured motor mount ill swap out the 27mhz and MSC but i know nothing about TA01 chassis and even less about the hummer version. Any must do mods? How is everyone cleaning 20yr old plastic parts these days?
  12. Used. Purchased on here as a project but just don’t have time now and thanks to a recent purchase something has to go and I just don’t think I’ll get to it. These ate still difficult to come by so thought I’d give another member the opportunity Chassis is built, body unpainted but still has protective film Box a bit battered but in tact Includes the full kit but no ESC or radio gear/servo so in the box will be: Chassis unused, no scratches, like new fresh built 540 kit motor Spare sprues as pictured Body mounts Window masks Decals Wheels tyres Driver Manuals for chassis and body I’ll disconnect bumper and body mounts for packaging which will be secure and bubble wrapped. It owes me £160 so add postage or social distanced collection welcome
  13. Just finished up this spare body for my black edition this week (stock bar shocks/bearings/lights)
  14. Hard work has really paid off. I have found larger areas harder with airbrush (but I am amateur!!) so moving back to rattle cans for the base colour.
  15. The finish is fantastic. Is that after run down and polishing or just wet coat clear ?
  16. Hi @J@mes looks nice. Any body damage at all? How much would you want for it you reckon?
  17. Getting the scorcher ready for paint. filled and sanded the nose cone fitted scorched parts inner wheel arches Trimmed, bonded, filled and sanded the rear light buckets for leds
  18. Cool! I these IKEA Detolf shelves? Do they fit all 1/10 or do you have to remove some sections?
