  1. Welcome to my build thread. After starting a introduction topic someone mentioned i should make one, so here it is. Basically i'm going to try and convert the Tamiya Impreza WRC body into the road going Impreza called the P1, which i happen to own. The Kit: Tamiya 58210 This has been stored in my attic for the last 16 years. What i am trying to make: Subaru Impreza P1 What is the Impreza Prodrive P1? Its a limited edition version of the Japanese spec Impreza STi type R Coupe only ever available in the UK. Limited to 1000 units, built in 1999 by Subaru UK in collaboration with Subaru Japan, STi, and of course Prodrive. For those of you that dont know who Prodrive are, they made all the WRC Imprezas. The biggest difference between the Tamiya shell and the P1 is obviously the fact that Tamiya based it on the WRC car, which means i need to convert it a little. The roof air vents need to go as do the bonnet vents. The front bumper is incorrect , the P1´s front splitter is missing, the rear wing from the P1 is totally different (made by McLaren) and last but not least the wheels are incorrect. The Tamiya body i also too wide and would make up a perfect 22B version of the car, but honestly i'm not sure what to do there. I have looked all over the internet but i cannot find any different versions of the classic styled Impreza other than the WRC cars . I will be trying to make up all the P1 relevant decals myself using coral draw. I have never done that before, but im sure youtube can help . That will consist of: Prodrive P1 Titanium badges Front Splitter with drivers lights and covers (Not fogs!) SUBARU Lettering on the boot O.Z Racing lettering for the wheels Wipers front and rear P1 embossing on the rear spoiler Carbon gurney flap on the rear spoiler Custom number plates as in the picture from my P1 I am not going to cut up the original body or rear spoiler, i would rather leave those completely untouched so i have ordered the following at Siedel´s. Tamiya 05726 Mirrors Lexus GS400, these look like the impreza door mirrors that are missing from the kit. Tamiya 04134 Spoiler Impreza WRC 1999 Tamiya 1825324 Body Impreza WRC 1999. Tamiya 0445837 Wheels Impreza WRC 2001. These are exact copies of the O.Z Racing wheels used on the P1, just in the wrong colour. Tamiya 50419 Tyres 26mm, these are the same as the original kit ones and copies of the Pirelli P Zeros. Which the P1 originally had. Tamiya 53113 Inner Sponge The TA03F Chassis plus Hop-Up Options. I have finished building the chassis and used the following Hop-Ups. 53280 TA03 Super Low Friction Damper Set 53263 Dyna-Run Super Touring Motor 53279 TA03 Torque Splitter (front mounted) 53309 TA03 Titanium Suspension Shaft Set 53287 TA03 Carbon Reinforcing Plate 53275 TA03 Alu Motor Heat Sink 53268 TA03 Urethane Bumper Set 53113 Racing Inner Sponge Set. TA03 Race Ball Bearing set (Carson) Now time for some pictures, the chassis so far: The O.Z racing wheels arrived today, just need to paint them the correct colour. That would be anthrazit, a colour thats not available from Tamiya so i will be using TS-38 Gun Metal Grey. Thats all for today, thanks for reading. Im off back to the UK tonight so nothing will be happening for the next 14 days.
  2. I have been on a journey to recreate a Ta03R TRF. I've gathered up most of the parts, but am still looking for a couple At this point, I'm still trying to find some of the pieces. if anyone has some spares, I am more then happy to buy them and put them into a new home At this point, I'm looking for the hubs, 1 set of universals, the steering arms, 6 m3x18mm turnbuckles, knuckles, the aramid belt.... and a tensioner pulley lol. I'll be putting up pics in a bit,
  3. This is a first, because I seldom come across an item that is unobtanium. I have 2 of these NIP and thought I would share with others in need. I have seen them fetch crazy prices on eBay and I am not looking to put anyone out. So how does $25 shipped in Continental US sound. If you are abroad, well I will need to add for shipping.
  4. For sale is 1 CLK-GTR body, painted. The body appears to have never been used. Paint job is decent, some of the decals corners have raised and dust has settled underneath. Front Mercedes badge is missing / broken. Asking for $40 shipped within continental US. Shipments outside, depends on your locations. SOLD
  5. I bought these only a few weeks ago however they are too big for the bodyshell I was going to use them on. Like new Dingo 'Fender Flares' complete with fixings. They bolt-through the bodyshell so should hold up pretty good off road. Will only sell on for what I paid for them, which was £17 posted (I think, the old PM has been deleted!) (please note that parts have been removed from plastic parts trees to make postage easier) Second up I have a CC01 Radshape RC front bumper, brand new, it's been installed but has no marks. Decided it's not really for me, cost £11.99 + post originally, so I'll take £8 posted for this one. Next up is a Tamiya 53387 TA03R-S/F-S chassis conversion with FRP chassis plates. This includes all the instructions, screws / fixings and K / J parts required to convert a TA03F or R to shorter wheelbase, or an existing short wheelbase to FRP double-deck setup. This can also be used in conjunction with my other item to create a TA03R carbon fibre double-deck chassis if desired. New In Package, £40 + Post ONO Next is the aforementioned TA03R carbon fibre chassis plates set OP.363 part 53363. Also NIP/unopened, yours for £50 + post. As said, it could be combined with the above chassis conversion which contains all the necessary parts (K & J parts) and screws to create your very own TRF TA03R if you so wished... Finally I have these pretty rare parts, spare 'H' parts tree from the limited edition 30th Anniversary Porsche 934 kit, also brand new and only removed from its' packaging for this photograph. Part number is 9004184. I can do this for £13 Posted ONO
