  1. Took the plastic film and window masks off the tomahawk after painting yesterday. Went for PS30 brilliant blue in the end.
  2. Got the tomahawk put together and kitted it out with turbo scorpion wheels. Just need a good day to paint.
  3. +1 for this, I have recently finished restoring my original Blackfoot and have decided to shelve it - bought a new kit as a runner. You can still choose to upgrade the heck out of the re-re!
  4. Got the ww2 chassis finished and had a quick blast 😜.
  5. Finally got round to starting work on the ww2 chassis. Rebuilt the gearbox and installed new bearings, got through bag A steps in an hour or so with my daughter helping out. First time I’ve had the body in such an advanced state before starting work on the chassis.
  6. Wheels arrived so this project is finished!
  7. After 6 weeks, Blackfoot wheels arrived from California. Can finally get this one done ☺️
  8. Yep, my other choice might be to go with a PS35 blue violet. Decisions decisions
  9. NIce! I was thinking on using PS54 on my next build (Kyosho Tomahawk)
  10. Still painting 😂 Willy none too pleased he is still armless
  11. Got a bit more painting done on this one 😋
  12. Got a couple of coats of TS26 on the required parts on the WW2. Very happy with the finish 😅
  13. No worries @mongoose1983I have looked through my photos so you can compare the 33 years old original tamiya glossiness (bottom) with the standard MCI stickers (top) I actually think the slight Matt finish suits my paint job better!
  14. Yep, you have a $2 option for a gloss coat or a matt coat to be applied that gives better UV protection too. As I say I am really happy with the standard finish it’s just they aren’t quite the same as the tamiya originals. Glad you like the build, I have kept everything as stock with the exception of putting in a hobbywing 1060 esc. Still waiting on a set of front wheels and then it will be done. Got a ww2 coming soon 😁
  15. Good point! I didn’t realise that there was that option until I had completed the order 🤦🏻‍♂️ So my stickers are just ‘standard’. Still look great though
  16. Thanks, MCI stickers are very good, they aren’t as glossy as the original Tamiya ones but I think they look pretty good. I used the hair dryer to help fix the larger ones and they didn’t seem to be able to take as much heat as tamiya stickers. Really happy with how it has come out - will only be going out on occasional easy going trundles!
  17. Got stickers on my old Blackfoot body 😊
  18. MCI stickers arrived yesterday so got them on today. Brought so many memories of building this kit with my dad in ‘87
  19. Thanks, I really like the way it looks without the main stickers, I might only use a few when they arrive
