  1. The Desert Feilder body is a rare to get hold of than the monster Racer though?
  2. Thanks all. So you’ve answered my question and I have decided to attempt to clean up the original. Il post some pics up in the next few days. i think I will try genuine tamiya cleaner first....I know there are many suggestions online such as brake fluid, nail varnish remover, tar remover, solvent cleaner etc but these are all brutal products. I would worry it will cause hazing or permanent damage and think gently gently catch a monkey! Changing the subject slightly, what is the original monster Racer colour codes? Ben.
  3. Thanks for the replies. So given the choice you would persist with the original shell even thought there is the odd minor defect? A new shell is not massive money.....there is a seller on eBay but the drawback is the originality.
  4. Hi, I’m new to the forum so hi i owned a monster Racer in the early 90s as a kid, and snapped it in half. being a bit nostalgic I’ve been looking for one for some time,,...a couple of boxed new examples have surfaced on eBay but I wasn’t prepared to pay the premium. eventually after being patient I bought a mint example at a good price....the only downside Is the shell is painted in the wrong colours/scheme. I want to revert it back to box art. I bought a rare set of original decals, but wasn’t sure wether to buy a new pattern shell or whether to attempt to clean all the pain off the existing original shell. The shell is the original with no crack, dents or splits, but a couple of light scratches (only minor). With decals being extremely scarce now, would you reuse the existing shell or buy new? Would the shell originality have much impact on its desirability and resale?
