Hi, I’m new here as some of you may have seen in the General Discussion Room. I have built a Tamiya Super Sabre in the past during my teenage years and now that I’m 45 I thought I’d revisit the RC model building world to recreate my weekend play car, an MR2 Mk1 so I thought I’d start a build thread and see how I get on. The eBay listing for the MR2 shell said it fitted a Tamiya M-06 chassis so my choices where a Midnight Pumpkin Lowride or VW Beetle. I love old cars more than custom motors so I went for the Beetle. My first worry was that once I was home with the kit I noticed it was 1/10 and that the shell I ordered from the States was 1/12. So I joined this forum as I hadn’t even started yet and already had confused myself with different chassis lengths, wheelbases and scale. You guys jumped straight on it and put me right with the things I needed to know. Thanks. Anyway, after reading loads of stuff on here I realise that the best thing to do when building kits is to follow the instructions and not jump ahead. So in true Boddney style I started at section 26 page 15 and built the wheels and tyres as I had a spare half hour to myself at the weekend. Lol 😂 I’ve pictured the kit and the MR2 shell and a picture of my weekend car for inspiration along with my impatient instruction jump. Hope to get back to you with more soon. Bod.
