nearly forgot to post the outcome of yesterday's 200 km roundtrip, brought this 70s gem to its new home:

When I was a kid and before Tamiya got into RC, I found a book about model cars at our local library, and the Jerobee cars were pictured. As I had built an Otaki 1/28 scale McLaren Can Am together with my father before that, this Jerobee McLaren was instantly my favourite. The daydreams I had about racing this model were of course far beyond the performance of the actual model. Still, some good memories from a time the dreams I had about owning models were superior to reality now, having an unknown number of cars.

Some more bodies to keep me busy. Some wheels for my mf01x rally, some wheels for the M08. A bottle of poly cleaner and a TT02S because Tamico offers are hard to resist

Are you going to make holes in the 911 GT2 body? if so, would you be interested in a swap plus cash your way for a factory drilled version? (just the shell itself) I'm particular about undrilled bodies but I know most people aren't :)

Do you mean the body pictured (RSR 934) , as that's a

from Tamico, they have plenty :)

too

I was a bit miffed the Delta body was drilled, it wasn't supposed to be. I keep trying to do magnetic mounts, but I struggle to get the body low enough like that.

Ahh, my mistake sorry! Thought it was the 49387 GT2. I have a stack of the 934 bodies including that exact one from Tamico so I should know better!

If the Delta is a removed from a kit it'll be drilled. The 51401 body set is undrilled.

The body for my M08 arrived :)

 

Lovingly packed all the way from Japan, so much so I can forgive the customs charges I got stung for...

Alongside is the previous target, I’ll let you guess what it’s supposed to be. TBG bodies might be good for racing, but it’s lacking some finesse :D 

the Silvia body though is a thing of beauty. :wub:

The postman dropped off this '78 BRAT model kit; it'll provide some important details and inspiration for my 1/10 Tamiya BRAT build coming up...

Some front C hubs and the Blitzer uprights I’ve been waiting on for my DT03. Can finally look forward to some time at the kitchen table swapping all the parts I’ve amassed over!

well today i got my first smashed up item thanks to hermes  and vintage 70s/80s cassette storage box.

real shame as it lasted all this time then they get their hands on it and destroy it.

the case can be re-glued but the lid is not so simple i may just cover it in 1.1 window tint

mind on the other hand the great seller refunded me straight away.

always wanted one. Even if I only use a few times it only cost £26. For using on plastic and soft metals should last for ages!

Good old Hermes☹ they did the same to me with a buggy champ😡 I searched for ages because at the time they were getting thin on the ground I got one but when it arrived it looked like a spear had gone through it completely destroyed the body and box! And try and phone them🤯!!!

Really sorry about this. It seemed to be a really nice storage box! Have you got a picture of it to see how it was like?

A belt for my XV01, finally some tyres for my MF01x and the M08 build.

I managed to not buy a TB-05 again too ;)

The TB looks cool (just reading online about them). How do they differ against the TT02 in terms of performance etc?

It is incomparable. Even a fully modified TT02 won't be as good as the TB04. The TB is far superior.
