  1. Well I got nostalgic about RCing so I decided to get my first Tamiya kit. I chose the landfreeder matte black edition because it looked cool to me and the body already came painted. Build was a lot of fun and it's stock except for a bearing kit and a power hd lw-20mg servo. So today I took it out for its first run! I was really surprised how fast it ran and how long. After 2 hours the 5Ah NiMH was still going strong. Here's a before and after: The only thing I wish it had was a back bumper to protect the body.
  2. No mention of this so far? https://tamiyablog.com/2017/08/first-photos-of-tamiya-47361-landfreeder-matte-black-sp-painted-body-cc01/ Image shamelessly stolen from Tamiyablog: What say you? The Landfreeder was always a parts-bin special, but it was one of T's better ones, IMO. A good-looking shell on the popular CC01 chassis, and rarely for a Tamiya scale truck, the drivetrain matches that of the late-80s pickups that the body closely resembles. So does the Matte Black Special offer anything new? Well, I guess only if you don't like painting bodies, or you're in too much of a rush to hit the trails. I've never used Tamiya's matte finish paint on any off-roader before, and I'm not sure how it holds up to scratches and creases. Perhaps this one is better assembled and put on a shelf for posterity? Or given that Limited item number, maybe it's a special treat for those collectors who like owning unopened boxes. Gotta say - I love it. Always liked the Landfreeder, and I often regret using my shell on another project where it didn't look so good. This latest photo makes me wish I'd not only kept it for the CC01 (still in box, unbuilt) but painted it black instead of white. With those wheels and those low-profile tyres, I think it's a stunner. Any thoughts?
