  4. Hello all, this is first time i got Tamiya battery 6V-4000mA. It is battery for Hilux, it is very old as i know, i did try it, it spins the motor. So now i want to charge it properly, but i do have only 7.2v quick charger 1200C. Can i charge using this charger? I noticed conectors do not fit properly. Do i need to get 6v charger? Might you have any info, thank you!

  9. Stunning work, it is biggest pleasure to paint, so rewarding. Looks really good! you will use original decals?
  10. I want to make it period correct, and to use stock electronics. I will use stock motor, ap 227 acoms, stock servos. Do not know much about battery. I know it had to be 7.2 V. Does it mean mah can be different , i noticed there exist 2600, 3600, does it change motor speed? or its capacity? I noticed on other car, driving 2600 mah car goes slower. Thank you.
  11. What a cool project, long time not seen this huge car rebuild. I was doing Hilux rebuild some time ago, it is really fun car to work on. Good luck on the painting!
  12. I think to make lights shinning, just needs a lot electricity work. I do have licence plates, and wipers, it is hard to find parts! Just needs a lot of attention painting the plates. First attempt was bad, now need redo it;) Painting is not easy pysy;)
  13. Hi all. Was working on the Scorcher. Painting is finished, i am quite happy with the result, it is not perfect, but it looks good from distance. Hardest part for me was painting around windows, made it by hand. I guess best to place tape around windows. Got some wheels for the car. Now need to make electricity working. Later will work on the chassis. Few photos. Not registered, no licence plates.;) No licence plates. Sun roof not glued. Missing wipers.
  14. Decided to make it a box art, this is first layer of the paint.
  15. After months of work, here and there, a lot of patience, primed body.
  16. Hello all, long time not post here, i was working on the projects (not tamiya). But in spare time was repairing Sand Scorcher. I got it very bad shape but it was running. Very bad body, wheels and tyres needs replacement, radio box broken, a lot of dust and dirt. Now working on the body. Still needs to repair chassis, not work there. Here few photos. Hope you like.

  20. once sow ship kit which is 1500 euro, for 88, i thouhg it was true, but lost the money
  21. Work with masking is difficult. I found it is necessary to make sure the tape, has no air, all is on the surface, then no paint can go under the tape, usually using white tamiya masking tape for all corners. Well for me to take tape off i need the paint to be strong, because can easy scratch it, so i leave it for couple of hours, if using tamiya paints. It really depends on the paints.
  22. Wish they release it same as the old one, because to get parts almost impossible. It would be 40 years anniversary ?
  23. Hello, seems pretty good example, beautiful color too, no front damage, i would go for it.
  24. I was using automobile charger of acoms. But now colds come to my home, snow all around. I need to find other source of energy.;) I was thinking wire to the pc. What is your experience charging your battery and what charger you are using ? Thank you!
