Hi Guys, brand new to the forum. Grew up a massive Tamiya fan, used to drool over the catalogue and dream. First vehicle was a Boomerang, wanted the Fox but the Boomerang was chosen for me by Santa. By the time I was early teens, I thought I could take it apart to clean and it never went back together (I never put the vehicle together originally). After months of depression back in the early 90's Santa came again with the Beast, I wanted the Hilux but she was not in stock, so I pointed at the biggest box on display and the Bullhead was mine. She was put together again by the local hobby shop. By the late 90s I was more interested in other things, I moved to Europe in 2000 to return to Australia in 06. the bullhead found her way to my dad's car yard where she sat dormant amongst an array of vintage and modern Jags until 3 weeks ago when I said... It's time the old girl got back on the road! New at the resto thing so I am here to ask advice from you all when I need. Still undecided on what I want as a final outcome. All I know is that after nearly 25 years, all of a sudden I can't stop thinking about Tamiya again... But I guess that story sounds familiar... So far -Took her to a hobby shop to see what she was like mechanically and all good, got new digital running gear installed (still don't know how I feel about that) I still have the original equipment but I think the speed controller has had it. -Started cleaning and bought new C parts as I have a broken rear control arm. Never took a photo of what she was like complete before I started the resto, these are after the first dust, I've only taken detail shots so far so I don't get another Boomerang situation, I must say the stories on this page motivate me no end as to what is possible!
