Agreed, nice score. Must have cost an arm and a leg, perhaps more :-)

Tamiya fs12-lt engine for a ta01 mre nitro conversion
Futureworks

Thanks guys :-) My start point is to get the engine sorted, then I'll strip down the chassis, clean and rebuild to include fitting radio gear so it's good to go. As for a body, that'll get left until later though it would be nice to replicate the Konig Merc in the advert above if I can find wheels and body. Current thoughts are to use the merc bodyshell I've got as part of a new built TG10-Pro 49172 I bought recently, which could fit. More (probably much) later!

Couldn’t agree more; I think this is the nicest shell I have ever owned, and I used to have this as my TC member image until recently.

Amazing amount of parts and a reminder that Chris really has produced some brilliant pieces over the years. I always liked the original scorcher dash, more so that the second version. Wish he’d do another run (he did do a 2nd after all, so why not just once more). Mind you I’ve not seen anything new emerge from REC for a few years....

Great looking model. At first I thought it was the old TA03F (58189)from the late 1990's - hadn't realised the body had appeared again on a more modern chassis. One of my favourites with the Martini livery. Nice Job!

Nice score. Increasingly rare to see something like this listed as a NIB on TC.

Great looking example - not necessarily the hardest kit to find, but in this condition is rare. Are you not tempted also to get what I believe is the rarest of all the Tamiya F1’s, the Brabham BT50?

Amazing condition! Did you also get the upgrade parts to address the gearbox design problem on this model which was sorted out on the release of the Jugg II..?

Tamiya ta01 mre nitro conversion
Futureworks

So an update on the muffler issue - acprc identified that I was missing a spacer which would have come with the original conversion kit. Being a loose item, this part was not included with the new built chassis I purchased as it had probably been lost by the original owner. Luckily acprc didn't use the spacer for his MRE build, and I now have it - as pictured (all held in place with matchsticks pending arrival of some very long M3 bolts). That's a major problem now resolved, so I can get on with stripping down the chassis to clean and check all parts before the build.
