  1. This arrived today to take over winter running duties, so I can save my Tamiyas for best. 😀
  2. Why did Tamiya choose to re-rere the Fire Dragon in preference to the Thunder Dragon? Is the fire dragon is an easier hit while the factory is running at reduced capacity?
  3. My pens are nice and organised but my lunchbox oversteers like crazy. 🤪
  4. Although I painted it yesterday, today I got to bring my scorcher shell into the house for a coat of looking at.
  5. It was a sunny afternoon so I took my CC01 Unimog for a walk in the countryside.
  6. For my money, playing with toy cars beats walking on broken glass as a hobby any day.
  7. No, they’re chromed Tamiya Star Dish wheels
  8. Today I finally repaired my Holiday buggy’s broken shock tower and added some bling wheels
  9. Today, has been a good day! 38 years and few months of waiting are finally over.
  10. I had the same problem with my frog dog bones. I took springs out of two retractable ball point pens and cut them (roughly ) in half and placed them in the drive cups. I had to use a bit of trial & error and trim the springs to fit as if they're too long they cause the suspension to bind. I've not had the problem since.
  11. That’s good advice. I’ll be sure to chase it up.
  12. I paid $80 plus $22 postage. Ouch! i ordered from Cooper813 on ebay and so far they’ve taken 19 days to arrive. That’s quicker than I expected.
  13. Sand scorcher box art bumpers from the U.S.
  14. I don't mind the charge so much. I'd not been charged for my last two orders from RC Mart so i suppose its fair that I pay one every now and again. What makes it tricky is that the Royal Mail sorting office is only open for 2 hours per day (7 until 9am) so i'll have to wait another 2 days for a re-delivery.
  15. Wow that looks a really nice colour combination and you seems to have achieved a good paint finish. Enjoy looking at it now as i doubt it'll look this good when your 5yr old takes over.
  16. Best bit: That feeling when you open a new kit for the first time Worst bit: That feeling when you roll / flip a new built model for the first time
  17. I’m pretty sure the alternative decals were shown on the box side with the optional colour schemes. The decal sheet with the alternative Cindy door graphic is available from MCI racing
  18. I couldn't find the recommended seller on eBay so bought a pair from a seller, who eBay tells me is in Leicester. The PayPal receipt names the seller in Chinese (深圳市老虎须科技有限公司), but claims they will be delivered by the weekend, so perhaps i'll be lucky.
