WILE2002

wow !!
thanks for all your welcomes & comments...
right here's the story, all be it a bit quick..
we were looking for a new house, after months of searching, Sally ( my partner in crime ) & myself found our house & did the dirty contract deed.
After been in 2 months i needed more space for all the boxes etc, where upon i opened the loft hatch to discover a hidden gem all packed up to the rafters.
OH MY GOD ! IF CARLSBERG DID LOFTS.
I sat there for hours pulling out box after box of childhood dreams ( well i did have others but best not to mention Farah Fawcett )
Each box containing a undiscovered treasure trove, monster beetle's , superchamps, sand scorchers, rc10, brats , sand rovers & holiday buggys, was just about to open a huge big box, when i heard the faint sound of sall's voice ringing out
'STEVE YOUR BREAKFAST IS READY'
I awake from the deep pleasant slumber, a bit groany n moany, thinking about that cool dream whilst rubbing the sleep from my eyes & realising
I'VE GOT TO CLEAR UP MY TAMIYA COLLECTION SOMETIME SOON Ha Ha
hope you liked the fairy tale dream
Truth is i have over the last many yrs collected & sold loads of tamiya, but there is all this lot left , plus a spare room & half of the garage full of more of the dreaded tamiya r/c devil's toys.
i am currently in process of joining Tamiya club & sorting out the 40 odd boxes of cars buggies trucks & spares & trying to get as many photo's on here as possible before i overload the site HaHa.
will keep you all posted with more as it appears.
Once again
THANK YOU TO ALL FOR THE WELCOMES & GREAT & FUNNY COMMENTS, ALL APPRECIATED..

hi j-man
i have no idea what make it was ?? think it was scratch built, looked really cool & i had intentions of scratch building a body for it, but as you can see, far too many projects.
so sadly sold it on ebay a short while ago as it was nitro / petrol & i'm not really into that. appart from from my fg beetle.
There are so many cool projects half baked or started, thats why gota sort it all out.
Have you ever heard of a puddle jumper by any chance ??

Hi to ALL
THANK YOU ALL ONCE AGAIN FOR THE GREAT WELCOMES & COMMENTS...
dont want to keep boring you all with big write-ups, but loads of questions being asked so i'll try & answer short n sweet...
Sorry but the cossie 500 is not for sale, i got it for my partner Sally's birthday present a few yrs back. it is an absolute mint now built un-used car, but sadly it's a sierra & that says it all ! in my eyes
But alas Sally loves sierras. Mmmmmm.
All boxes have the car / buggy / truck to go with them, either built or un-built .
there are a couple sold recently the dragster & escort ,
Yes it is a bit like christmas, the bit where you realise you havn't got any batteries or the right ones to play the great new toy you just got of the bearded jolly fellow .
( I never seem to get anytime to use them, or work on them )
hence why the sort out ... still sorting my scalextric & retro games & toys....
I wil take photo's of all my r/c vehicles individual as i sort them over next few weeks.
deciding as i do so , what i am gona keep & whats up for trade or sale..
ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU TO YOU ALL !!!
FOR THE GREAT WELCOMES & COMMENTS !! MUCH APPRECIATED

Retro look beach buggy with modern twist
WILE2002

thank you all for the comments
i think it was a bratz dolls car
the details on it were pretty impressive, loads on the dashboard, those quilt effect seats & the rear end is a good view as it blasts away down the sand.....
i've got to admit it is a sweet looking buggy, & everytime i see it it just makes me beam..
silly little bits still to do, it's screaming out for a set of leds in those front chrome dome lights & single lamp rears.
cant wait to find time to start all my old projects up again 2 more in bronze...
4x opel manta 400 's & 8 more manta 400 yet to arrive
Butcher-Bird.. build it now, it will make you smile... i promise.... i'm looking to a couple of other chassis options for my others, cant quite get it to fit an rc10 though...
