Thanks, thats a scan from January 1986 RC Modeler. Bottom half of page shows the Super Champ on sale for $132 and Suaru Brat for $63!
Very nice color scheme and realistic photos! Those ducks are huge!
Very nice collection, you have everything from my wish list! Love seeing collection photos like this!
Cool Grasshopper, very original! Love the tires, the foamies always remind me of the little AA-powered Stomper and Rough Rider 4x4's we had as toys in the early '80s, right before getting into R/C - very fitting for a Grasshopper!
R/c hobby room
LOL, I wish! Unfortunately, no, somehow our safe ended up in my hobby room, but has nothing fun inside it. But the smaller fire safe on top of it is where I store LiPo batteries.
Honda ballade sports mugen cr-x pro land of the rising sun edt :)
Cool paint job, very original and fitting for this car!
Box art scorcher
Nice work! Really like the wheels and tires for this paint scheme.
Finally an optima
For a first Optima, that is an excellent find! Still looking for my first Optima, and hope I can find one half as nice as yours!
More vintage kyoshos
Very nice work restoring these Kyoshos. The original Ultima and Ultima Pro are 2 of my favorites too!
Built from used parts
Nice Supershot! Looks good with the black wheels!
Nice Grasshopper, looks sweet with those upgrades!
Kyosho 480 gold
I agree! This was my #1 most-wanted motor back in the day, but never got one, too expensive (which is generally still true today, but I keep hoping an affordable one will pop up!)
Cool Optima! That box-art color combo never gets old, I love it!
Original supershot runner
Thanks for comments. I still discretely remember the first time I saw the Tamiya ad in a magazine for the new Super Shot - Of course as a 13 yr old boy, that page was quickly clipped out and hung on my wall as one of the coolest cars I had ever seen!
Nice set of Wild Ones you have there! Probably my all-time favorite Tamiya, and yet I still don't have one :( I am very jealous!
Also, for the shelf, what else ?
Wow, looks very good! Think I'm putting this on my wish list now that I've seen your photos!
Original hot shot runner
Thanks for the comments. TM-yes it will be a runner, but I use that term lightlty as I seem to spend most of my time either building, on TC, or on ebay, and unfortunately not enough time running! Oh well, summer is around the corner, right?
Very cool, looks to be in excellent condition! Have you attempted to run the engine? I like how the exhaust goes out through a tailpipe!
My latest project: f-150
Nice photos, and great detail on the interior!
Nice work! Looks so good, especially with the Hotshot!
