Now I hope for bad weather to be able to hide in my mancave ;)

Treated myself to a TT-02 SR and various upgrades in preparation for racing in the Tamiya GT-E Cup this summer. The Cheverolet Camaro shell was painted about 6 years ago but never used so this seems like an ideal opportunity.

Keen to see this when complete. Where did you find a ‘SR’ kit? Pretty thin on the ground these days

Thanks, me too. Won't be starting the build for about a month as just started a full kitchen and dining room refit so the garage has been turned into a temporary kitchen meaning no space for rc building. I got the kit from tamico - the only place I could find with stock.

This little EasyTreed X1 3D printer.

Buying this slightly used was cheaper than buying a 1.75mm filament nozzle and extruder for my K8200 3D printer.

I intend to use it to print the steering hub balljoint cups for my Marui Samurai.

Not cheap and, typically, it got fingered by HMRC :rolleyes: But seeing as the last few Tamico orders have got through unmolested I guess it's swings and roundabouts

I suspect you're right...so it's YOUR fault the price spiked :lol:

Seriously though, thanks and sorry about that. It is a very beautiful kit and will 100% get built.

TBH I was looking for an OG GT1 Le Mans body shell and sticker set and the prices they were going for made this look like a better deal. Could have done without the Customs charges but in the grand scheme of things I'm still ahead

These arrived today, only about a week to get here from Hong Kong.

I'm glad the bodies are both precut and prepainted.  The painting bit is easy (when its just one colour), the cutting is the hard bit.

These are going to be put away for a while.  I got them as a matching pair so we can run them together but in no hurry to build them.  I only bought them while they're readily available, I was on the fence but invariably that means I leave it too late and miss out.

The DPD man dropped off early at the secret delivery point!!! Mrs BD was on her first dog walk so managed to nip out and back unseen:ph34r:

bearings and super mini cva’s also in the box along with a Carson ESC. Have no experience of this esc but I’m only going to run a TT motor so should be ok🤞🏻
Now the biggest choice “What colour “. Think it needs to be a single block colour but can’t decide. Any thoughts out there?
