Had listed all model since 1980 but lost all the listings after I'd typed them. Will re list when I get a mom

Not pictured:

1 Sand Schorcher 1980 Beatties Bristol

2. Subaru Brat 1983 Beatties Holborn

3 Toyota Celica Gr B 1988 Beatties Watford

4 Toyota Celica GT 4 1994 Seymour Models Harrow

All of the above dates are best guess's

Then there was a big gap till 2019

Then this happenned:

1 CC01 Defender

2 Stadium Thunder

3 Sandshaker

4 Dynahead

5 Rally Beetle

6 Asterion

7 Porsche Cayenne (bought 2019 made 2020)

8 Madbull

2020

9 TT02-S chassis

10 Amarok High lift

11 Arqoshot

I also have a Titan and a dual rider waiting to be done. All of the above have been made by me tobe driven. Those of you that have seen my threads will know that quite a few of these have either been re bodied in some way or are non Boxart.

I also have a Wild One and a Blitzer Beetle but these were made by others.

I can honestly say that if I had not found out about Tamiya Club when I bought the Defender none of this would of happened:D

I didn't start recording my builds before the mid nineties. Also, I sometimes forget to enter models in the list when I build them. So the list is not complete, but covers roughly what I've built between 1976 and today. The * behind the name indicates that I've built more than one. Mostly 2-3, but up to 300 pcs. (specifically Tamiya 58096, built for one of the sponsors of the real car, who gave them to their customers. 300 may sound like quite a lot, but a friend of mine built a lot more of the same kit for the same sponsor.)

Oh no, my brain is way too old!

As noted at the top of the post, I started registering my builds in a list (Excel by now) of the models I build. So, the above listing  is virtually a copy/paste from the file

@Mokei Kagaku

Wow so that's new kits built, do you have time for parts builds, restores etc!?

As you have built so many of most models, a quick top 5 ???

Yes, new kits, and yes, I have time for restores etc. and the reason is basically the same for both confirmations:

Before moving to Germany in 2000, I worked for 17 years for the Norwegian Tamiya distributor and in the hobby shop of a friend of mine. Sometimes fulltime, sometimes both at the same time and partially parttime while studying or working fulltime for the battery manufacturer SAFT. During this time, I built a lot of models for customers, the distributor showroom, for my friend's shop and for other shops aswell.  Girlfriends complained about my constant unavailability. No idea why! :P

After I moved to Germany, most models I've built have been for myself only, with just a few for friends and customers. This means that I built a lot more new kits from 1982 to 2000, than I've built the last 20 years, leaving more time for restorations now. 

Top 5 (in quantity):

58096 Toyota Celica GT4 (TA01): 300 pcs. built for a sponsor of the real car. Used as gifts for their VIP customers. As noted in my original post, a friend of mine built a lot more of the kit for the same sponsor.

58231 Wild Dagger: approx. 50 pcs, built for a wheelchair manufacturer. These were built with a Hitec Single Stick 3ch transmitter and with the two motors connected in series. Hence the choice of chassis type, although we tried with TL01 too, using 4-cell batteries. The purpose of the models was to give them to children to teach them in an enjoyable way how to use the joysticks of their (first) wheelchairs. The boring part of it for me was that the company decided that all bodies should be painted and decorated as boxart! :wacko: The inside of my nose is still a pretty solid PS16! :P

Kyosho Ford Escort WRC (EP Super Ten Sports):  Roughly 20 pcs. built for a sponsor of rallycross driver Martin Schanche's car.  Like Schanche's real car, all painted the rather terrible pale yellow available for the Ford Mondeo at the time. I believe it was the Mondeo's launch colour. Sticker set was custom made and thankfully rather simple, but the quality was awful.

58190 Jaccs Accord and 58186 PIAA Accord (FF01): Combined approximately 50 pcs., built for a sponsor of the Norwegian BTCC / STCC driver Roger Moen. Like the Celica mentioned above, used by the sponsor as gifts for their VIP customers. All painted red like the real car, with the large blue/white cross of the Norwegian flag across (plotted adhesive film).  Custom made sponsor stickers in acceptable quality to replicate the real car, which is the reason why I have masses of PIAA and Jaccs sticker sets. :P The same friend I built the Celica's together with, also built a lot more Accord's than I did.  To simplify the assembly process and improve reliability, we replaced the ball diff included in the kits with TA03 gear diffs. A bit of the gearbox housing  internals had to be cut away for clearance, but that was quick and easy.

58048 Bruiser: Roughly 20 pcs. built for customers and demonstration purposes. A bit funny really, because I've only built 1 Mountaineer and not a single one of the 3-speed re-res. And frankly, I feel no urge to do it either!

58240 BMW M Roadster (M04L): 10-20 pcs. built for a BMW dealer. Initated by a friend of mine who worked there.

Two other contenders for the Top 5 are the Tamtech Ford Mustang GTP Probe and BMW IMSA GTP. No idea how many, but quite many of both. This was just after the Tamtech series was released and believe it or not, to boost sales, a lot of cars were built to serve as "demo rentals" at hobby fairs. Despite being quite robust, the 5 of us struggled to build enough new kits to replace the cars "out in the field" that were destroyed and lost.

The reason why we built mostly the GTP cars was the impression that customers showed little interest in these cars as the real cars were raced in the USA and mostly unknown in Europe (pre internet).  So, we tried to balance stock according to demand by using the Ford and BMW for demo rentals, leaving the more popular Porsche and Lancia for sale. As we painted the bodies in fantasy colours anyway and just put on Tamiya logos and the cars were so small and difficult to identify from some distance, we assumed that using the unpopular body styles for the demo rentals wouldn't be a drawback.

We tried to use the Testarossa and Porsche 961 too (and the Countach when it became available late during our "demo rentals" period.) They were popular, but way too unreliable. The blue ball connectors of the SWB/MWB chassis constantly snapped off and when not, they (and the sway bar) tweaked the chassis by making the motor pod get stuck at an awkward angle, making the cars undriveable. So we quickly stopped using the SWB/MWB-chassis for this purpose.

58192 King Blackfoot and 58242 Wild Willy 2 may be among my Top 5 builds and are definitely among the Top 10.
