  1. For what it’s worth my update is that having been told to work from home. I thought great sneak in a bit of rc building in, this was a big fail. I think you end up over working when you’re on your own at home. So now this has been extended for a month. Okay so I might be able to get into a proper routine and get some rc work done. But the icing on the cake was being asked to go down to a four day week, for the sake of the company. Yes I’d like to come out of this with my job. But I’m now going to take a big hit on my salary losing 4 days worth of salary a month. This is seriously going to affect my rc purchasing. Sorry that sounds really flippant. Any way I’m going to focus on finishing some projects and if my kids are still stuck at home as well, being a proper dad will be good. Take care and best wishes to everyone. Al
  2. That’s rusty, but yes Super Champ. Nice.
  3. Dramatic turn of events, we got 2 hours notice and told the office was shutting at midday. Not opening at all next week. So I might get some quality time in after all.
  4. My office is pretty much closing, but I’m in a position where I will have to keep going in. Our freelance staff won’t earn any money if I’m not around. So my unfinished projects won’t be progressing anytime soon. Keep safe guys. Go easy on the toilet roll !!!!
  5. I used to run my Sand Rover in the snow and best of all my Hotshot. I just used to put the receiver in a bag to protect it. Happy days.
  6. I’ve developed a habit of buying bits of cars. Say a quarter or a half. I guess cars that have been abused or stripped down. I then spend ages finding all the missing bits to restore. Bringing back the bits that have gone and restoring what was left. I hope that makes sense. As a result I get a bit fixated on certain cars. So mostly Cheetahs, XR311’s, Sand Rover’s, SRB’s and most recently 3 speeds the Toyota Hilux and Blazer. Ive just recently picked up a Porsche 934 body well most of it. I think I’m in real trouble now ???But I think the common thread is returning something back to what it should be..
  7. Wet and dry it. Give it another gentle coat. Leave it for a couple of days. Just don’t rush. We spend years collecting parts or waiting for a particular model. Just don’t stress it.
  8. I’d love a 959, but every one says how the shell was an issue. Its a shame Tamiya don’t really seem to talk back to the paying public / addicts. Just let the people know what could be re-released and what will never see the light of day again. Certain cars I’d love to own, but seriously wouldn’t pay some of the money people ask. Purely because it’s just not right when I could probably help a charity do far more with that kind of cash. Just feels morally wrong to me. I blame my parents for my up bringing.
  9. Is there anything to stop Tamiya re- releasing any car ? Okay so they probably wouldn’t blow mould the 959 body, but they could still make one.
  10. I’d just be happy if they did a complete re-release of the original one, regardless of its faults and the fact technology has moved on. Just totally original.
  11. The original Hot Shot had white wheels, never gold. They came with the Hot Shot2. What I find funny with all of these debates and discussions is that with such a dedicated fan base and supporters of a company, that company does not seem to talk back to the people keeping it in business. And let’s face it a tough business to keep going in this age of PlayStations and Xboxes.
