Hmmm, that's a great idea.  Hope you mind if I borrow that for my Sand Scorcher.  I was just going to put a piece of tape over that huge switch box.  

Yeah, definitely swap that switch!

@berman Sorry to hear about your loss, my condolences.   And sorry to hear about your torn rotator cuff.  ouch.. !  Hope you recover soon.

My wife's been complaining of shoulder pain for almost a year now.. it was initially her left shoulder, now it's her right shoulder.. in her case just getting old like me.   Enjoy your RC and GL with your 1:1 truck!!

BTW, your CRX looks nice!    I remember the days when those cars (1:1) were new.  Such a blast to drive.  

Thanks man. It's still pretty painful, but have more movement and less pain than 3 weeks ago. 

Sorry to hear about your wife, it definitely sounds like something she should get looked at though.

I remember when a guy at high school brought one, we were still driving around in late 69s early 70s British cars and this guy turns up in this tiny white space ship looking thing! 😲

That R5Turbo though, the stance is perfection 😍👍

Thanks James, much appreciated. Yeah I think its pretty cool too. I normally swap them around, but that one normally stays in there 😊

@berman Sorry for your loss. Get well soon so you can fully enjoy your hobby(s) again. Love the M-chassis. 

Thanks dude. The family member was a bit of a blow (sudden) but the friend deteriorated quickly and was an rc guy too. Just one of those people who was a joy to be around, you try your best to have time for them and then after they've gone, wonder what you could have done to spend more time with them.

You've really had a rough time @berman, my condolences.Hope your shoulder heals well and you can get back to RC soon.

I didn't take nearly enough time assembling the drill but it gave me a a short break away from some frustrating work (work got its own back later with some after hours system testing).

I hope to try it out soon.

Thanks BC. I think those drills and the other stuff from the educational series are quite cool. They are a good break from the norm. Hope things quieten down with work for you so you get a bit more time to tinker 🙂

@berman

Matey, sorry to read about your buddy and family member, tough times.

Good to see you are re-emerging and slowly getting back to yourself though.

Nice~!  I think you’re going to like this car.  I’m going to put a few boxes in the interior to close up that empty space   

 

Because of the detail of the body it just begs for bits an bobs to give it more realism

Managed to shred a propshaft in 15seconds in my CEN monster trucks first run. Still even in RWD it was a hoot, and the kids loved it's tricks. Who said Monster Jam isn't fun 🤔👍🤘

After a few self-induce set backs, finally have Sand Scorcher body #1 somewhat finished.

Not a clue but I must say I'm admiring those highly engineered paint bottle holders.   Maybe this is a stretch but have you accidently spilled some paint along the way?   LOL.....

It’s a problem I have. I’m on medication but it doesn’t always work. Once it’s finished a primed in the same colour it will be more apparent. XR311 arriving Monday?

They’re for Tamiya glue pots. Stops them brining tipped up when glueing (voice of experience!!!!)

Circle cutter and Tamiya masking tape. 

Or even easier Tamiya masking sheet. Every modeller should have a circle cutter. They are invaluable especially if you want to change the colour of glued on wheels!

I finished an alternative body to get my hopped-up M-05 ready for a run in the racing by post tomorrow. Hope the weather is not too bad...
