  1. It's nearly ready BD, should be up some point this evening...it's taken me most of the day to take the photos and trawl through the build thread so I could write an accurate description
  2. Thanks JB, that's all very generous of you 👍
  3. Thanks man! I absolutely loved making them
  4. Today, I checked back in here for the first time in about 6 months! Great to see some familiar names still producing outstanding work, others putting their cars to good use as Mr T intended I've been away a while...after a lifetime of renting we finally bought our first house in November, out in the Welsh countryside. It's been a full on whirlwind of building work, decorating and sorting ever since Typically, what we could afford to buy is smaller than what we could afford to rent (the system is so bent), so we're down on room and I've had to make a choice between my two space-consuming hobbies; RC kits or records. Music is my first love, so it always wins. As a result, all my RC stuff has been shoved up in the loft since we moved. Over the last week or so I've been digging it out and going through it all to work out what's what and have decided to put a few of my projects up for sale. Anyone who has followed any of my build threads, particularly the bits-a-builds, the hopped up Dark Impact, the 49400 or the Super-Dooper Astute may recognise a few of them They all bought me massive joy building them but I'm not going to have space to display them for a good few years and there's no point them rotting away in the loft so on they go...coming soon to a well known auction site near you This isn't the end...I've still got a couple of buggies to run in the woods around here and about 10 bits-a-build projects boxed up and ready to go, so once I've finished big-scale problem solving and decorating I'll be able to treat myself to some 1:10 fun Keep up the good work folks 👍
  5. The Alfa Giulia is now sold so that just leaves the CLK-GTR boxed body set...anyone?
  6. I hear ya! I've got the wheel nuts in red and blue, and have got the tyre stickers too but not sure they'll fit. I would love to, but I haven't had much luck getting stickers to fit 24mm tyres. The profile is that bit lower than 26mm tyres and there doesn't seem to be enough room Of course, I could just be doing it wrong 😬
  7. Following on from this earlier post about the dilemma of finding the right 24mm rims for my Calsonic Skyline TB Evo III... Found 'em! In the end I didn't even need to wait for them to pop up on Japanese Yahoo, I found them in a hobby shop in HK They're close enough to the right design, certainly closer than anything Tamiya offers at 24mm. Next step...a coat of TS-26 to brighten them up and then some slow and patient work with a chrome pen to add a bit of detailing to the barrel and 'nuts'
  8. Cheers! I got the body set, inevitably, from Japanese Yahoo. Including fees and domestic shipping it was a tick over £60 and I managed to offset the international shipping by selling a few bits and bobs I shipped with it. Well worth the hassle though, I absolutely love it I also really love the blue / yellow Bilstein livery, I did something similar on an AMG GT3 shell that sits on my TB02-R bits-a-build using a sticker set I managed to get Nath at MCI to produce for me using a 1/24 decal set as a base and adding in lots of patience and a fair amount of arm twisting! Again, worth the hassle though 😊
  9. Tamiya 51471 Audi R8 LMS Body Set on a TA04-RR built entirely from parts with the addition of: upgraded one-piece diff joints carbon fibre front and rear damper stays carbon fibre battery straps silver aluminium steering arms
  10. Almost a full year after I last worked on this Audi R8 LMS shell, I finally finished it! It's a great fit on the TA04-RR bits-a-build, so that's another one finished 😀
