  1. Hi there, I decided to build a replica of my VW bus, a 1973 lifted type2 bay window (with a water cooled v6 engine ) into a RC model. I purchased a reedition 2010 Sand scorcher and started the build couple month ago, I thought it would be all about the details, trying to replicate all the work that went into my original bus into a 1/10 scale version, using a mix of old models parts, 3D printed parts and so on... This is where things started to be a little more tricky than I thought, the only body I could find online of a type 2 bus 1/10 (the one with the square front, not with the V front) is an ABS Body and a Lexan body found on eBay that are basically vacuum molded and lack a lot of details as a result . Second huge detail is the wheel spacing, the bus front to back wheel distance Of the bus body is a lot smaller than the sand scorcher wheel distance... this is when I decided to cut the bottom plate and reduce the overall size of my Sand scorcher body :/ In this thread i’ll Show you all the steps of my work in progress, this is far from being done but i’m Planning on posting regular updates of my built . Hopefully this will be a good one . Here are some pictures of my (real) Bus , you can find more here http://www.instagram.com/pacifist_northwest . Let’s see how close I can get wish me luck.

    1980s Maplin car?

    Hello, I was reading a thread about Chinese copies of other manufacturers' chassis on another thread just now and was reminded of an unidentified car which I remember from my time as a teenaged racer back in the later 1980s. All of this has been filtered through thirty-odd years, mind, so forgive me if any of this is misremembered. I occasionally used to buy a magazine in the UK which I think was called Model Mart or Model and Model Engineering Mart, or something similar, mainly so I could scan the small ads for any 2nd hand bargains. It had a red cover and was mainly full of old school black and white print, but the back cover ad was usually full colour and frequently featured an ad for (I think) Maplins, featuring a 1/10 RC kit of unknown manufacture which seemed to be aimed at racers, but which always seemed unfeasibly cheap (about the price of a Hornet at the time). It was a 2WD chassis with a spindly design which vaguely resembled an early Ultima. It was shown as having (if memory serves) five-spoke wheels of an unfamiliar design, aggressive-looking spiked tyres (also unfamiliar) and a presumably polycarb body with separate wing (painted white with blue and red lining in the image). It always looked like a pretty tidy-looking kit to me and not at all like the cheap, injection-moulded, non-modifiable toys which seemed to pass for RC models elsewhere. I considered buying one at one point with my hard-earned pocket money, but my father advised against it, citing its unknown pedigree and unproven supply of spares. I have often thought about it since, though, and wondered if anyone here was ever tempted by one or has any idea what it actually was? It seemed to my reasonably well-informed eyes to be a pukka kit, but that could have been wishful thinking cobined with a misleading photograph. Another thought which recently occurred was that it could have been a cheap copy of an obsolete Ultima or something similar which had been knocked off wherever such things were done back then before China got in on the act.

I'm letting go of this rare kit $300, tam 92200, it even has drivers cockpit detail parts, very cool and unique. 94 Castrol Celica WRC PM me for shipping cost, USPS first class or priority whichever is cheaper for the buyer.

    Tamiya petrol RC cars

    Hello...I am interested in Tamiya petrol engine cars...is there any shopping website with good prices?...what it is your opinion about a TG10-Mk.1 model...because I dont have much experience...it is possible to mount body kit number 51364 Subaru impreza wrc 2008 on chassis TG10-Mk.1...thanks.
  9. Having bought this earlier this year and scanned through the many many pictures of offer (its all in Japanese so unfortunately I can't say I read through it at all) , I have decided to sell this on and let someone else appreciate it too. I was very careful when browsing it not to force any pages open too far etc, and so the book sits almost like brand new. Not a single mark or tear or blemish on it at all and no discolouration either. The book/catalogue, is 148 pages all full colour. With loads of hop up parts listings in colour too. Will be sent very very carefully packaged and covered in rigid cardboard as not to damage it at all, the price includes UK postage for this (will post overseas but at cost) , would make a nice Xmas addition. So I am asking exactly what I paid for it, £24 posted is the price. More items coming soon including loads of RC Line UP Booklets. Thanks James

    Kyosho Beetle question

    Hey guys. Pretty new with these older things (first post here). Im wondering if this is worth anything? Found the box when I was looking for the manual to my Raider Pro buggy. As you can see the condition is like new. Never even touched the dirt. Seen on a vintage site that it sold poorly when it was release but is very rare in new condition. I really like this thing but I dont wanna drive it if its something that could be valuable for someone. And since Im not really a collector, I just like to drive them, Id rather sell it. Any price ideas and should I put in up on Ebay or is anyone around here intressted? Thanks for any information. See you later!
