I've never been more envious of anything in my life than you having plastic containers that perfectly fit each vehicle.

I laugh but was thinking the same thing...

Exactly this. Where did yours come from @Peter_B

I have a mixture of Really Useful Boxes and ones from Clas Ohlson bit just can't get it right.

Are 'Really Useful Boxes' a thing or a nod to Thomas the Tank Engine?

Actually a brand of boxes in the U.K., but also probably a nod to Thomas

Most of them came from Tesco but they are by Wham (nothing to do with the 80's pop sensations though as far as I know).

They do various sizes, I have a mixture of lower profile (32 litre I think) for buggies and taller ones (can't remember the size) for King Yellow, Lunchbox etc. I also have another, in-between, size that houses a Wild Willy 2 quite nicely.

There are also a couple of Keter (I think) "crocodile" boxes that my Monster Beetle and Blackfoot live in.

In one of the pics, on a lower shelf, are some IKEA Samla (70 litre I think) boxes that are nice and low profile but big enough to hold 2 buggies side by side. If the sides were vertical instead of slightly angled I think I could get 3 buggies in them.

Replaced one broken steering knuckle on my Bullhead. And now I go for spin with it in my backyard.

Put a load of TT01 hop ups in the Trades section, and then got a great paint delivery from the postie so got to work on the driver figure for my DF03.

He's an Avante driver being converted into Ayrton Senna! I had to take quite a bit of material away behind his right shoulder to let the steering rod move freely, and trim away all the protrusions underneath to clear the prop shaft, but he fits with a bit of room to spare! 

Mixed X5 orange with a bit of X8 yellow (70/30) to get a close-ish match to PS Camel yellow, but it's looking alright so far. Waiting for the yellow to dry now.....

All done now bar the decals!

Finished stickering my Team Azarashi DF03 shell. First side went on fine, second side was a nightmare to get in an equivalent location. Can now get on and paint the wing

Built the gearbox for my Bruiser. I have 3 speeds, all neutral :wacko:

Investigation needed.

Building mine too at the moment (genuine one though). I have gears available! But weird amount of play on the shaft. I’ve checked and rechecked but nothing missing, so don’t know if it’s normal or not.

Attempting to solder and remembering how much I f$*$(E((E((ing hate it.    Also tried crimping a Tamiya barrel connector for a motor and busted the tabs off of 2 of them with the crimper.

Kill me now.:angry:

All working now, once I'd set it up properly. My 3rd channel only has 2 positions, so gone with 1st and 3rd for now. Can change to 1st and 2nd or 2nd and third if I reduce the EPA to 0% on one of the positions.
