Showroom Sale - 6 Vintage and 1 ReRe Models.

Recommended Posts

Time to free up some space in the spare bedroom - serious UK enquires only.

Mint Ford Ranger (SRB) & radio gear £650

Mint ReRe Sand Scorcher with hop ups £395 

Mint SWB WW M38 with radio gear £600

Mint Hilux 3 speed with radio gear £1000

Blazing Blazer with radio gear - light resto req £1200

Nice Vintage Sand Scorcher light resto/comp  req £200

Mint Super Champ with radio gear £500

I’ve missed the eBay low fees offer this weekend, but these will go on sale eventually as and when time allows. 

Collection is Esher in Surrey, otherwise posted using UPS or RM with full insurance is an option. 

If you are genuinely in the market then by all means get in touch with me. 

This is not a ‘fire’ sale and I don’t want any trades. 

Thank you

Simon

I think so @barneys66, but I'm 99.5% sure a loofa would get stuck up there, no matter how hard I pushed.

@Grumpy pants, could you add some links to your showroom please? I've had a look through and I can't make head nor tail of which ones you are selling! :)

Dear @jonboy1 😊

I don’t think many of these are in my showroom as I stopped adding models to it a number of years ago - it was just one thing less to do 😳

I’ll see what I can rustle up as it’s you 👍

Was there anything in particular? 
 

Hope you are well.

That’s really kind of you Jeremy, thank you 😊

Not leaving entirely, but having a sell off has been on the cards for a while now. 

Happy to keep all, but I would prefer to see some of it go where it can be used and enjoyed, all of my kit just sits forlornly in the spare bedroom and it bothers me that it doesn’t see the light of day from one month to the next.

Wow, what an opportunity to pass on a chance for others to enjoy some 1st class examples of Tamiya history @Grumpy pants 👍🏻
 

I still remember the first time I saw a 3 speed Hilux built in the flesh sitting in a hobby shop cabinet in Kent. Very nice thing indeed.

Love the custom work on the Ranger, takes it to another level.

The Super Champ is a mighty fine buggy riding on the black rims too.

You wouldn’t happen to be planning treating the family to a trip to Australia with a very large suitcase for Christmas would you funded by the new job 😉😁 ?

This is uber cool Simon

Thanks Kev - quite possibly my all time favourite this one and certainly my favourite box art.

The 3 speeds have been a long term passion for me - the Hilux was my 1st Tamiya sometime around ‘83 @Re-Bugged

The Ranger is by far the best one I have ever owned and an absolute peach 😊

As for SC, black on black works so well as an alternative colour scheme and it is a quality bit of kit ❤️
 

Love Oz, I have been to your beautiful country 3 times and our plan is to come back together and tour when we retire. 
 

Thank you for your kind comments genuinely appreciated 👍, you have a gorgeous collection of Tamiya and fantastic eye for detail that I often admire.

Thanks Bud!

I didn’t know whether to use the ‘Thanks’ emoji or the ‘laughing’ one 👍
