  1. A 30th anniversary clod would be a delight! I have little interest in a red coloured super clod disguised as a re-released version of the original tho. The Nissan King Cab and Terra scorcher are my favourite picks for a re re
  2. "2016 TAMIYA MADE IN JAPAN" is printed on the box
  3. Replaced the standard plastic/metal bushings in the Unimog with ball bearings.
  4. I agree about the Vise crawler in big bold letters. Yes I understand that BFGoodrich is brand of tire and Vise crawler is type of Rock crawling tire from Tamiya. "Blimpie Sandwiches" would have looked better then Vise crawler TBH.
  5. I only noticed the three holes for mounting the body
  6. just got mine from my LHS, surprised to see it on sale already
  7. I recently purchased this off a local buy and sell to keep me busy until I can get my hands on a 2016 Blackfoot
  8. I just bought my first CC-01 and I have to say it performs much better then I could have imagined. As a person who has ran big wheeled trucks and the odd buggy here and there I am very pleased with my CC-01. I have an expert built Unimog 425 I took It out for the first time this afternoon on a 1500 Nicad pack to get a feel for it. I'll be replacing the plastic bushings with ball bearings right away. For its intended use I also plan to replace the stock silver can with a CR tuned 35T motor
  9. I noticed the 2016 Blackfoot listed on tamiya USA website the other day and now it's gone. What the heck?
  10. I started on my Brat #58384 back in late 2011. I always start my builds with the most tedious part...the body work. Well I made the mistake of slapping on several coats of TS-8 Italian red. However I didn't spray on a proper base/primer beforehand. It didn't turn out to well needless to say, live and learn. I have a Chrome Clod I want to sticker up with the original Clod #58065 decals and install some yellow C.V.A dampers #50304, still looking for those atm. There's also a Re re MB and an Agrios in the build queue...I really need to finish that Brat first though.
  11. That's a great idea, and I feel some racing flames would make it look pretty sharp as well. Just a thought
  12. I had a Mud Blaster as well around the same time (1989, my first tamiya). I can honestly say I never had any gearbox problems with it. Just the very well known hex shaft issue. With money saved up from my paper route earnings, I installed a Trinity Monster Mash and Thorp universals with the telescopic type shafts. Original Gears/pinion and metal side plates held up fine with little signs of wear except for the pinion I remember had very sharp edges but no broken teeth. I'm actually surprised by all the gear box issues folks are experiencing with the MB re re. I have a re re MB and vintage BF for the shelf and I will be getting the re re BF as a runner to relive those experiences. Thanks for letting me share and reminiscing here
  13. Wishful thinking. Tamiya had the Ford decals for the re-release of #58495 Ford F-150. I don't fully understand how the licensing with brand names works tbh
  14. I think General Motors should provide the funds to Tamiya for a 'licensed' re release of the original kit in as many variations to celebrate its 30th anniversary of the ClodBuster in 2017 . GM can pay for KC license also. Long live the Clod.
