That's disappointing. My custom Avante stickers arrived in a flat envelope (see previous page).

My second favourite RC wheels. I'll need them for a Peugeot somewhere along the way.

The tale how this chassis finds the way to me (due to a special friend), I will tell in a new worklog…

So cool.

I have a very long wish list and the big wig is right up there as one of the absolute must haves. It just always transports me back 35 years ❤️

Lovely, THE most coveted Tamiya in my school hall.

Never had one BITD but picked up a re:re about 3 years ago and love it, it's one of the few things I actually run and it's such a blast. Enjoy!

Pretty much the final drop of TA03 goodies from Japan.

Still on the lookout for one more blue 16T pulley :ph34r:

@AshRCbrilliant! It’s such a great looking kit. One of the best I reckon and there is something about the livery/decals that is sooo good too.

Some further bits further bits for the TD4 build: slipper clutch, X-rings and some green slime. Never used that but as the shocks are inside the chassis I'd like to have them as leak-proof as possible.

And a can of PS-5 which is always good to have.

What's the reason the kit spur gear is module 0.6 and the slipper spur is 48dp? :wacko:

Body shell and rims for my TA03F-TRF 'Bluebird' project

Generally I'm not a huge fan of Japanese cars / body shells, but there is something about these R34 Skylines (and the GTR Gr.A) in blue with the Calsonic livery that really works for me :)

I'm sure Skyline aficionados will be able to tell me that the shell / wheel combo is technically wrong (there are so many versions of the Skyline) but I'm cool with it B)

Optima wheels, universals, belt.  Still waiting on FedEx to deliver my Optima MID #2.  :D

Most track buggies are 48DP, and all of Tamiyas most recent competition buggies are also 48DP (I say recent - TRF201/TRF501 onwards at least!)

Got to agree, the R34 is one of the best looking road cars you can get in 1/10th RC imo. Sounds like you're going box art? A good shout with this one I reckon👍

Yeah, going to open it up later in the week to see whether this one has the bonus poster or not. :D

My ridiculous second Tamico haul this month. This is for my SRCC & KRv4.1 builds, just waiting on the last few bits from RC Kleinkram and then I can begin to assemble both...

It arrived Thursday, just as I was leaving for a second weekend at Spa Francorchamps, so unfortunately I didn't get to unbox it all. Fun fact, I've now spent more time on the E40 driving across Europe than I have at home this month. Hopefully, I can distract myself from work for a bit tomorrow and do some organising of parts.
