The "Postman Brought Me" Thread

Recommended Posts

A customs bill :mellow:

Seems that some of these premium shipping services from the Far East (ie Hong Kong) result in more scrutiny / more accurately reported value and get caught up in the system. Sad times.

£23 to DHL (which is odd, since the seller - Asiatees - states it was sent via FedEx...)

Royal Mail hasn't been yet, maybe he can bring me some joy (read; blue shiny aluminium)

How was it packaged? I've just ordered one that is shown in a bag rather than a box? Did you have to return it As well?

I would suggest that bagged will be fake, Genuine would be in a box for sure. I bought 2 fakes (knowing that they were) and both come in bags from AliExpress

How do they run though?

I do still like the black can even if they are only as fast as standard 540?

Yeah they are basically the same as a silver can. It’s why I bought them for my Clod, wanted black cans and zero timing. If they are cheap on eBay then that’s not an issue, but if they are asking the same or near genuine prices then that’s an issue.

Not Tamiya :ph34r: but, I dunno about you, but I can't resist a cheap, boxed, vintage buggy!

It was in a bag. Not sealed back though, like a little ziplock type bag. Seller said to keep it and sent refund lol. He played surprised and said he didn’t know there were fake ones out there.

Yea I payed $30 for it. Thankfully I’ve got the $ back now and this motor for free. No use for it though, I’m not gonna use it

Delivery number two :ph34r:

Saw this lot on ebay and shot an offer that was accepted. 

Four m-chassis', not sure exactly which ones though if anyone can help me out?

Came with some spares, 4 shells, a lot of dirt and dust and I guess a history of banger racing!

Recieved the parts for my 2 ongoing projects.

PSX_20200721_192827.thumb.jpg.4c86d92430e5d6f2063dbdf6514ed6f7.jpg

The parts for my original Top Force runner. Never thought to get the black cases so easylie. Now I can build the gearboxes.

PSX_20200721_192959.thumb.jpg.314cbf86b18c5c8cf69a614ad0c0bd8a.jpg

The other parts are for my TA-02 RS replica.

All parts are from Modellbau Seidel. They must have a really big storage or a direct line to Tamiya to get all these hard to get parts.

If someone need something from them, just feel free to contact me.
