Yesterday the postman brought me my NIB Calsonic Primera Upgraded Special - complete with vintage blister packs and lovely yellowed box cover <_< I will post pics in my showroom and put feedback on the seller's ebay account once I've had time to check the contents are all complete (heard a few horror stories about vintage NIBs missing parts!)

It seems such a shame to build something that's been stuck in the box for so many years, but I desperately want to see this FF01 on my shelf. I still have to decide between boxart of custom colours... Boxart for vintage cars always seems like the right choice, but if I do custom colours it can be part of my special display set... Ooh, decisions decisions!!

The Postman just brought me a nice NIP Nissan R91CP Body (Got 4 R91CPs now :unsure: ) + a set of wheels from europro, very fast shipping from England (thanks Tony). Going to have a fun weekend making a runner R91 to go with my C-11 :angry:

In my opinion, the R91CP is the nicest group C put out by Tamiya. The Mazda has a nice paint job but not the details like the 91. I sold my recently without putting her together but I know whoever buys the R91 knows the beauty and appreciate this particular model. But I have it in 1/43 which is just as nice for a shelfqueen <_<

...and it's here, nicer than expected! Purchased to build into a runner, but it's almost too nice. Not a single scratch underneath.

What a nice car backtomyroots! Does it have two brushless motors?

Well the Postman brought me a nice Mitsubishi Evo 6 wrc body (for only 15 euros!!) and some bits to complete my TA01 chassis. I love the dollar currency :D

Nope, it has the standard 550 size 12 turns. But, you never know what the future holds for it. Can't wait till the new batteries arrive !

I'm so looking forward to testing this out in the underground car park tonight - this is my first FWD runner, and with a pink motor it is sure to fly.

Look out for some pink graphics on the body soon :)

The Postman brought me this (pre-built chassis) and then I painted/ decaled it :( Too good a deal on EBay to miss and these are my Favorite Group C. Wheels are being painted soon. Not sure if I can bring myself to use it.
