The "postman Brought Me" Thread

Recommended Posts

What a luck! Dropped by at a local Tamiya hobby shop today and guess what I finally found...

Been searching for this since last year, the two other Tamiya local shops didn't have this in stock.

Also couldn't resist to pass on this...

Received a motor and ESC from a HPI Venture, next to new for a very reasonable price and perfect for upcoming crawler builds. 35t motor and 2s/3s compatible ESC. Also, some polishing compound and masking tape (you can never have enough masking tape) and a nice little Ford pin that is going to look great on the front of my King Blackfoot crawler

Some MCI decals for my Agrios build and a couple more for ‘future projects’

I am anxious to see what you do with these, any hints?

Please don’t get overwrought, it takes me forever to finish a project. The Summit decals are for my Agrios build - they are only missing the ‘Bigfoot’ decals.

The other two sets are in the ‘future projects’ pile when I eventually get round to buying some TBG shells.

I have been planning the F150 for so long I have now bought two sets of MCI decals for it. Oops!

Received the Jazrider bearing steering set for my DF01. What a load of garbage! Bores not straight, binding parts. Even if it was properly made it would be a crap design. Avoid.

Only a few more sprues and I'll have all the plastics I need. Still can't track down a 12.5mm tube for the motor mount screw though...

Is it just me or does everything in those bags look like GPM parts with a Xtra Speed label stapled on?

I never thought I'd be able to get one of these, as they seem to demand a huge premium, but I woke up one day and saw one reasonably priced but not too good to be true, and it was in even better condition than I would expect! I don't get lucky often with buys, but I'm still waiting for it to explode or disappear or something.

Some other assorted goodies arrived too, not that this stuff is bad....hehe...but the Escort....man......good things do happen every now and again.

Let's see what a £14 8000mah hard case lipo is like! :wacko:

In fairness, it's made by fullymax and they seem to be quite good budget batteries. I think all the Overlander lipos are currently manufactured by Fullymax and they aren't bad.

If you don't hear from me again, assume it wasn't very good.
