  1. There’s a group for this topic called The Workbench. Post your pics of your “shops” and work area there too!
  2. did some searching and found the answer, thx TC!
  3. uh oh, in looking around TC, it seems most CC-01 jeeps are outfitted with RC4WD 1.55 rims and tires. I expect the 1.9's will work with the kit tires, but should i purchase an alternative 1.9 tire (like dirt grabbers, mud thrashers, etc) will that pose a problem with height? thx
  4. ok, thanks. Suggestions on alternative tires that would be good for forest trail running, slight mud, perhaps sand as well?
  5. Hello all; It's been a while since I've been on here but I have bought myself a Jeep Wrangler and have a question... I decided to purchase these http://store.rc4wd.com/6-Lug-Wagon-19-Steel-Stamped-Beadlock-Wheels-White_p_1931.html RC4WD 1.9 Lug steel white wagon wheels for this build, but never having used these before i was wondering a couple of things: 1) Do these RC4WD wheels require that I use tire foam inserts? 2) Can I use the kit provided tires or is that not recommended? Any other thoughts or recommendations are welcome. This build will be a mini-replica of my actual 1994 Jeep Wrangler seen here, so I want to get this right....

  7. I rejoined TamiyaClub today! Started listing some of my odds and ends on Ebay and couldn't resist the itch to see what was going on back in here! I'll still be holding on to some of my rides for the kids to start to play with, but much of it is already gone or soon to go.
  8. Got a bunch of stuff up, but thought you guys might like these especially. I have two sets listed. They are lower profile BRat type tires for the front wheels/rims of the Sand Scorcher, Grasshopper, Hornet, etc.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/300848988104?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1586.l2649 Check out my other listing as well. Thanks!

I'm no longer a paying TamiyaClub member, but if you do a member search on my user name you will see all the models I had (and some I still have) from my old showroom - link --> http://www.tamiyaclu...=57867&id=18346 Currently up for auction on ebay (US only) is a restored grasshopper (mixed parts old and new).

  10. Hi guys, I am starting to get rid of my collection again and figured I'd let the die-hards know first. I just got these two auctions up with more to follow. Sorry to say, I am only shipping to USA with these auctions, as I have had issues in last few with int'l shipping. Anyway these are good well kept models, ready to run. They've been sitting on the shelf and need to go to goos homes where they'll get used! Thanks for looking! tarznatz auctions Added shipping to Canada as well. OH Canada!
  11. New items posted today. More to come: tires, esc's, msc's, receivers RabidBeagle LTD

  13. The shocks and tower are gone... all the eagle tires are sold.
  14. See my trade room here: The beginning of my clear out so as to make more room! FREE STUFF
  15. Just discovered my Lancia's front right wheel mount is broken, probably due to my son playing with it when he's not supposed to touch my precious cars! And I had just finally finished the interior drivers' bodies insert thing, only to wonder why the body wasn't sitting properly on the car! Only took like 4 years to finish the darn thing! Sheesh! In any case, does anyone have a spare A7 laying around that I could have, so that I don't have to splurge on a whole A tree to make this repair? Will pay shipping of course. Thanks! On Edit: Heh. Just noticed this is the 2nd injury to this car in which I've needed a part! He must like Lancias!
  16. That's not actually his car - but his is the engine combo mentioned and it is all original matching numbers, etc... I'll look into the Pactra line of colors before. I have no ability with an airbrush, and really don;t want to spend the $ and time to learn.
  17. I am planning on finally painting and detailing out my Kyosho 67 Stingray Pure 10 Classic Car body (yay for me). However, I would like to try and spray it to match my father in laws 1966 Stingray which is Mosport Green. See the pic below for what exactly that color is: The plan is to pain the body as I painted the Atomic Orange Corvette C5 in my showroom. Link: C5 There I used a mixture of paints in a series of tedious and very light coats to achieve the end result. As this body is basically a one of a kind and pretty much impossible to obtain, I figured I would ask here first before proceeding and potentially messing the whole thing up. I was thinking of using Tamiya PS-5 - Anodized Green as the main color (do you all agree?), using perhaps some of these others (which ones?) as in between/accent coats to get that truer Mosport color to come out: maybe some Fluorescent Green PS-28, perhaps some Metal Green Ps-17, I think definitely PS 44 Translucent Green and Translucent Silver PS36 , and PS 48 Metallic Silver
  18. Yes, paul is correct with his method. I find it the easiest as well. Warm soapy water, dip em in there and place on car. Perhaps drop some drops of water on the car first as well where you are applying the decal. Squeeze the water out gently with paper towel or lint free cloth, then use hair dryer and keep doing it til free of water. The heat from the hair dryer also helps the decal to stretch a bit where needed on tight placements, corners, etc, as well as warming and drying the glue for a near permanent placement.
  19. I will be adding more stuff as I get back up and running and see what I can make available for those in need. Please email me, as pm's don't get to me as fast, if you can. Thanks my member name is tarznatz as well... see linky: Trade Room!
  20. yeah i think white is the right choice in this spot.
  21. it makes the color look deeper, more full. All metallic paints need to be backed with silver to make them "pop". Also serves to protect the base coat.
  22. I am painting a body with Tamiya PS-3 light blue, and can't remember which color to back it with. Is it white, silver or black? Or does it matter as its not a metallic paint?
