  1. Thats what I love about this forum and the good people who use it, LOTS of very different answers, none are wrong and no one starts to argue about what other people like. Heres to us all.
  2. The Terra in need of work is SOLD The Thundershot is also SOLD Only the Black Terra Scorcher left.
  3. @Shodog IF......it used the paint I have then I would, BUT the price of buying all the different colours for a hard body would add another 30 to the purchase. Things here are tight and I am currently selling off lots of bits and spare buggies to get me have something I can build (the best bit for me) over the Christmas break.
  4. Agree, and the shell is used on the Terra Conquer as well (am I right??) Lets have the vanquish as well please Mr Tamiya as I would love to run it and the TS again.
  5. @Saito2 I did my collection the other way round. Started with the Thundershot then its family, then Boomerang, BigWig, Super Sabre, Winger, Super Shot, HotShot and finally a HS2 Oh and of course the Vanquish
  6. In a word no. The thundershot was a totally new chassis with EVERYTHING new from the wheels, the uprights, suspension arms, dogbones, drive shafts, half shafts. I think the only main component that is the same is the front to back drive shaft and the common small parts, screws, shocks etc. Even the motor was held on a new way (adjustable motor mount plate) much easier than the older slot in front or rear of the screw in the HS series.
  7. @ThunderDragonCy does a very robust shapeways one, it requires longer pins BUT if its for a runner it will not break again.
  8. @JennyMo, my painting is single colour rattle can with colour markers used for the drivers to date......cant see my skill level or interest rising to what you describe.
  9. Found a couple of cars I want and with money......interesting due to one of us not working have opened up some boxes to find 3 buggies where I thought there was only one..... so tied up as best as possible without doing any deep works, took some photos and posted em as for sale.
  10. I have 3 buggies for sale, 2 Terra Scorchers and a Thundershot, all vintage not re-re. Thundershot (£70 plus post and fees) Thundershot in not much used condition. Good parts:- Little used judging by chassis and gearboxes and wishbones and also plastic bearings condition. All diffs and shafts turn smoothly as they should. NOTE - I have swapped the very little marked bumper for one of my own (well you would too!) so it looks out of place (very well marked up) for a reason. It has had the front shock replaced with the Terra Scorcher upgrade twin set from new. Bad Parts:- Original plastic bearings (certainly on wheels and did not strip to check gearboxes) Uprated motor. Body is rough as you can see Original rims and tires replaced with decent condition ovalblocks. Cost is for the car as is as you see in pictures. Post and fees on top. Will be advertised elsewhere if not got a new home shortly. Postage from UK will be with Parcel Force 48Hr signed for and will be in region of £15. ANY questions ask. I am a massive TS family fan with 4 in my display case and ran one back in the day as did most of my mates. I have 3 cars up for sale and am happy to combine postage. Will be well packed, no instructions or boxes with any. Terra Scorcher (£110 plus post and fees) Terra Scorcher in much loved but decent working order Good parts:- ALL the Terra parts are here, WHITE RIMS with original tires in reasonable state with some flex in em, front UJ shafts, rear roll bar, bearings, upper adjustable arms (FRONT ONLY) All the required plastic parts to make it a Terra Scorcher. All moves as it should. Bad Parts:- Rear arms have been changed to solid arms Lower arms all have white stress marks Broken A5 which is also badly crushed Body is black and as you see its rough Paint on Chassis cover is rough and the mounting tab is broken off (the one you put screw through to fix it in place. Motor is a bit tatty but hooked up a battery and all works as it should Cost is for the car as is as you see in pictures. Post and fees on top. Will be advertised elsewhere if not got a new home shortly. Postage from UK will be with Parcel Force 48Hr signed for and will be in region of £15. ANY questions ask. I am a massive TS family fan with 4 in my display case and ran one back in the day as did most of my mates. I have 3 cars up for sale and am happy to combine postage. Will be well packed, no instructions or boxes with any. Bits Terra for restore/repair (£30 plus post and fees) Terra Scorcher in bits. Good bits:- all suspension parts there, so is front bumper. I may be able to help get the buggy on a set of wheels in running order if wanted with 2nd hand parts from my bits boxes (will notably increase cost) Missing bits are:- A5, front Roll Bar all parts, Rear roll bar all parts. Front UJ drive shafts, Motor, Motor mounting plate. Steering servo, servo saver and 1st steering arm. Speed controller. 1 of the battery holder (I will ALMOST defiantly have one of these) Wheels and tires (again can sort you out with non originals at a cost) rear bumper. Bad bits:- Both diffs stiff as (at minimum will need a strip and clean) It appears car was set up/built with way as they are both the same) Body has terrible paint and no decals. Oddity:- Built with seal bearings at least on the wheels?? Rear and front adjustable arms have some modded (non original) parts?? Cost is for the car as is as you see in pictures. Post and fees on top. Will be advertised elsewhere if not got a new home shortly. Postage from UK will be with Parcel Force 48Hr signed for and will be in region of £12. ANY questions ask. I am a massive TS family fan with 4 in my display case and ran one back in the day as did most of my mates. I have 3 cars up for sale and am happy to combine postage. Will be well packed, no instructions or boxes with any. If you use any of the Tamiya FB pages they were posted tonight in the UK Thundershot groups, Tamiya Legands For sale group. Many more photos there. IF anyone is interested will also add here (posting photos via a host site is the pain) OR if you PM me your number can whats app them to you)
