    Boomerang Re-release

    Its not confirmed yet, and the rumour says its only for the Japanese Domestic market - I'm hoping we all get a chance but i'd wait before taking it as a dead cert Fingers crossed though!

    Welcome! Lookig forward to seeing your build
  6. The ultimate re-re for me would be the Hilux Monster Racer and King Cab Those two are brilliant trucks
  7. I've just restored one of these - should I get a re-re to go with its vintage brother?
  8. Cool, should be reasonably priced too

    Tamiya Top Force Re-re-really!

    Great news! She's gonna kill me...
  13. A couple of years ago i bought someone's Grasshopper 2 that was in great condition but the body shell had been stripped back ready for primer, and there was evidence of a repair. I wasn't looking for one but thought i'd have a go at restoring it as it was one of the cars me and my friend drove as kids and to be honest it was a good price. Body Shell after a coat of primer: Repair After a few coats of White and some clear it was time for decals and a bit of Black paint: The finished car: Its completely stock and has the original MSC and balloon bag. I've connected a battery and spun the motor, gearbox runs nicely. Haven't ran the car though. Really enjoyed giving it a new coat, although I had to use re-pro decals which was a bit of a downer but they look ok to the casual observer. Apart from driving one as a 10 year old, I don't know an awful lot about about the Grasshopper 2, and will look to sell it on to someone who wants one for the collection but it was a fun project anyway. Cheers

    More Egress stock for U.K.

    Ouch! £439 is too much for me. Would never get that past Mrs Newsh
