    Or maybe everyone knows you have truckloads of them and are waiting for you to lower the price? Paul.

    How Much Is It Worth?

    I am a net buyer and I buy carefully (despite what others may say!) and I must agree with Tamiyoman on this. I have seen BIN items up for months, then sell even at what I thought was a reasonable price, whilst in the meantime auctions of identical or very similar items came and went below and above the price shown. Human psyche is a funny thing. I sell also (hence the 'net' buyer quote above) but you would be shocked how many emails I get from watchers of BIN items of mine saying things like, 'oh I missed it, do you have another one'. Well, whilst I sometimes do, it is interesting that some folks don't want something until they can't have it! Good luck with the sale - my tuppence? The car is worth £80-£100. The market is a bit slow right now, largely due to the season and money going in the wrong direction. Paul.

    Tamiya "bigwig" (1986)

    That was a little cruel Wandy, he put a lot of work into it! I do like this quote from the website though: "WARNING! This site contains some opinions and comments that you may not agree with. We encourage discussion and sharing of opinion and it would appear that some people find this difficult to deal with. My advice to persons of this persuasion is to close your browser window and view a different web site. If on the other hand you like a good giggle and can accept opinions other than your own then please read on .... " How many times have I felt like this.... Nice work, I remember making 'ugly' alu bumpers for my Boomerang and adding extra shocks to it, live the childhood dream, just with a bigger wallet and your mum not yelling in your ear... P.

    Cheetah Mti/lamborghini

    Ironically (for Tamiya collectors) it has to do with the similarity between the real XR311 and Cheetah from M.T.I. by Lamborghini (which was copied from the XR311) and the legal wranglings surrounding it. more here: Throwing toys out of their pram... Paul.

    Red Alpine A110

    That is a beautiful car, really nice take on the Alpine Paul.
  11. Tony's Tamiya Parts, the shop famous to anyone who has ever bought a Tamiya part old or new, a legend in parts listings and unrivalled in Tamiya knowledge had a severe fire a couple of days ago resulting in the loss of thousands of parts particularly from the cars from 1-100. I am sure we would all like to support Tony and his invaluable source of both parts and knowledge, but for a few days, whilst he deals with the aftermath, could everyone please be a little patient and easygoing with the emails and the requests for information on the shipment of parts for orders already placed and for new orders. It is going to take Tony a fair amount of time to go through everything that has been lost, generally he is planning to refund all orders containing orders for parts he is certain have been destroyed and he has asked me to thank everyone in advance for their patience and custom. I can personally vouch for Tony as the most honourable guy I know in the vintage parts business and he won't hold onto the money for any orders he can't fulfill and will make sure all customers are informed as soon as possible and goods sent out as soon as reasonably possible. Things will be back to normal in time, with some listings becoming available next week, but it will take a while for everything to be like it was and of course he can never recover the parts that have been totally lost, but if I know Tony, he will have great stock levels sooner than we might think. Tony has asked me to post this message and to thank you all for your business and be patient while he gets things back and running, which he promises to do as soon as possible. I am sure he would love to hear your comments and condolences, but whilst he hasn't specifically requested no one email him, he has told me he has limited time and access to email and I think it would be better to post any thoughts, comments etc here on this thread, I am sure he will appreciate it and read it. I will give him a link to this thread shortly. All the best to all, Paul.

    Metal Scorcher Stinger Exhaust

    Due to popular demand, I have decided to do a few Scorcher Bodysets in chrome. These will contain stinger exhausts in chrome as well. I haven't been able to gauge interest in just the chrome stinger exhaust, but if you two want them, perhaps there would be more interest? Best wishes, Paul.
  16. No, in the UK I had access to a kind of scanner thing one of my customers used. Not sure exactly what its purpose was, but not in an airport. Since coming to Czech, I haven't got access to anything like this any more. P

    False Printed Original Cheetah Decal

    We can admit it was me Honestly, I didn't notice the decal mistake, but it is s curiosity. I might be able to swap it for you, I have an incomplete Cheetah body parts set somewhere and there would be a good one in there most likely. P.
  18. 90% of my shrink wrapped kits for sure I know contain the correct kits. I haven't had the others scanned since I got to Czech. Paul.
  19. I have been meaning to go through my kits for years, I have at least 4 original NIB Hotshots, with another one on the way as well, one of them is shrink wrapped (should I , shouldn' I?) to see if I have an original bumper version. Is there a way to tell from the outside of the box? I guess there isn't... P.

    Egress Strip And Rebuid

    Hmm, sounds like perhaps there was non standard paint on it. Have you any photos, it might be salvageable, but from what you said probably not. Paul.

    Shame to hear about the body, what has happened? Is it opaque, or warped, or just messy? Paul.
