  1. I agree, I received my decals at the end and I was very satisfied with the quality, he did a great job with my custom decals also.
  2. How about mounting Konghead wheels to your crawler ?
  3. Thanks for the information. I would also like to know if Tamiya does that. But the first RC they made is far from those numbers - 56001
  4. Yeah, I'm sure they started with a single decal sheet too and than people sent their own scans.
  5. I would buy from you
  6. Amazing work! Makes me want to buy a Blazer. What kind of primer did you use ? Not Tamiya I guess.
  7. I received my decals after 3 months and never got a reply for my email about shipment. Communication was good while placing an order and about customization of the decals but it stopped suddenly. By the way it was shipped on time, I just receive everything very delayed.
  8. Before (summer 2011); After; Received my custom decals made by MCI Racing along with Sand Rover decals for some of the sponsors.
  9. Photos are too big somehow so I have to make multiple posts.
  10. Finished bodywork today; sanded, washed and ready to prime. Cage; Half Sand Scorcher steering wheel that I completed with a round strip.
  11. That video helped me a lot with my Bel Ray bullet build. Not many photos available online of the older versions.
  12. Since title says car my answer is original Bruiser. But my best Tamiya purchase is a Yamaha 40 EX yacht. It's much more pleasurable to run than a land vehicle, also very relaxing. Weeks of fun with 4x AA batteries (not included). As for other brand; Kyosho Surfer. The must fun I ever had in my life.
  13. My only regret was Clodbuster. It took me 3 years to sell for half the price I paid for it eventhough I added new Chevy grill and tailgate. I literally gave it away on ebay and paid the shipping myself to HI.
  14. Thank you! That's the thinnest ABS sheet I have, it just came gray. I bought it in 2009 and didn't pay attention to material or color. Thank you very much! I agree with you, Tamiya probably had to make boxy sides to fit RC components but I still think that they could do better, like Super Champ.
  15. Thanks! I prefer a real comment full of ***** than hundreds of likes
  16. Thank you very much! Here is an update for you; - Started building partial roll cage and turned the original roll cage into front bumper.
  17. You're right, you can replicate that photo using Tamiya Hilux, extending to long bed would help a lot. Also my photo is misleading because I narrowed the track width on my Rough Rider so it looks like it might fit. There's still huge scale difference between them though. I think it would be best to use a rc4wd Blazer body turned into long bed pickup and than place a Rough Rider with narrower track and rear tires for a matching scale.
  18. Hehe, it's a good investment.
  19. I think you have to shrink the Rough Rider to 1/20 to replicate that photo Biggest Tamiya pickup I have is Hilux. All Blackfoots, F350s, and Clod bodies are miniscule compared to Hilux.
  20. That's always been bothering me. I have Hilux, Wrangler, Clod and Rough Rider right now and they have huge scale differences between them. For example in real size Rough Rider fits the bed of a Chevy truck but in Tamiya scale they are almost same size. I had a real size Hilux and I know that it's a tiny truck and much smaller than a Wrangler and Chevy truck. I would say Hilux is a true 1/10 since Tamiya dimensions are pretty close to catalog dimensions. Rough Rider should be somewhere around 1/9 and Clod might be as small as a 1/12, and Wrangler fits between those two. Tamiya SJ30 body is a 1/10 too if you ignore that it's shortened. ^^^ Blazer is a giant compared to Hilux, but perspective...
