The "Postman Brought Me" Thread

Recommended Posts

I never bought anything that I didn't intend to build right away.  

It's been new-in-the-boxing for a month. That makes me feel very uncomfortable. I've been waiting for it to be rereleased, I had to get it when it became available.  I won't keep it NIB.  I just have other things to do like fixing the floorboard, varnishing the coffee table, trying to fix the central air, etc.  I hope to build XV01 before leaves turn brown.

Please bear with my bliss here. It's been LONG since the last time I got anything... but you see Christmas sure came early for me this year. THANK YOU @SuperChamp82

I understand eight pictures is too much for this kind of thread but well... Here's some RC good, CD earfood, and a couple of incredible Hot Wheels cars signed by two legends, John Force and the late George Barris himself!

Some detail:

Ima need to find me a used rere Scorpion to fit all this fantastic stuff, yay.

I have three Stomper tires and TOYO high lift wheels. I need to find some fourth to finish the set. These might work like a charm on some Wrangler!

Decals...oh, these are sooo cool.

Another transmission needed and another JUICY Hornet will be ready... someday :)

The greatest Heavy Metal album of all time in two versions. The Castle re-release and the 2021 Rhino version expanded and remastered which is absolutely incredible!! Oh, and that's Carly Simon's best 80's effort, one of my favorite female pop singers ever.

Hot Wheels' MEGA bliss here...

John Force's gorgeous Catrol Dragster!

And look at this one... the one-and-only George Barris' Batmobile!!

Y'all have a GREAT weekend! :)

Tough act to follow @mongoose1983, great haul!

My Sand Scorcher arrived today. Its my first kit with blisters and I want to leave it NIB because of it, but it will get built. My wife said something about cake and eating it too and didn't think my 'joke' about buying a second one was funny.

A legend in your own time!!! 70’s still the best for me. No Secrets had to be every teenage boys favourite album.  Possibly girls as well?

Some bits for the Dirt Thrasher and the Top Force.

I quote myself. It seems that I need to plan my purchases better. I forgot to order E-Clips. :wacko:

The good thing about that is that I will not only order E-Clips. Off course only to justify the postage...

Postie dropped these off, not the spa240 had that for years and that's why I bought this new motor absima thrust 12T and I put the le mans motor decal on it!. While I was in the garden using my turbo optima which the spa240 was in the motor kinda made an almighty pop then a bit of smoke so I thought I'd better take that apart and clean it and retire it to the display cabinet? The spektrum receiver I need for a monster beetle.

As a male, I completely missed the point your wife was trying to make, heard what I wanted to hear, and believe 'cake and eating it too' means she is making you a Sand Scorcher cake to go with your new RC...

You're welcome! 

What a fantastic wife you have there. 😎

[Excuses to everyone in here for going off-topic] That No Secrets album cover was oh, so nice. Now, her less-known 1981 Torch album cover must be hottest one. I've always had something for Carly Simon, plus she's a genius songwriter.

Some very lovely 3D printed hub carriers designed by our very own @ThunderDragonCy

A very smooth finish to these parts.

The postie has been very busy at my office today so I’m hoping for a bumper haul tomorrow :D

My LiPo adventure begins...

00E6252B-3805-4446-83EF-6DB3FC65E7C0.jpg

Though my charger has yet to arrive :(.

There there are these bits too

C3C7F84A-7462-417B-BE78-6DB849FBE89D.jpg

Bluetooth link for my crawler ESC (for giggles), a Holmes Hobbies motor (well, I know I'm going to use it one day...), some reverse cut gears for my scratch build tractor and a wheel well marker to try out. If only it would cut them out for me :D.

Not shown is the body that also came form LandL models as it is still boxed up.

I was worried that it might not turn up for a while but delivery was super-speedy.

Bought a almost retro brushed motor last week for my topcat off the Ebay it said delivered by royal mail signed for I thought good local postie knows his area etc but my heart sank when i got confirmation it had been dispatched.......by Hermes😥 so far my deliveries which have not been delivered or destroyed by Hermes consists of buggy champ which went out of stock everywhere i managed to get probably the last one in the country Hermes used it as a javelin target practice!....it was destroyed🤬 set of hpi dirtbonz tyres & rims delivered to the right house number wrong street, my wifes ted Baker shoes just went missing! Set of ipod's again right number but this time wrong street and left outside a block of flats (photo they take just shows a random flat communal entrance🤷‍♂️) and the latest one is a delivery which was delivered to my chosen shop pick up which I never had or chose?........in another local town! SO with all the above in mind it DID look like a good motor!
