Lovely kit and an interesting/passionate review. What more can you ask for? ;)
Wow, i have a hilux at last! (updated pics!)
Good work Duncan! The bumper looks a lot better on your Hilux than it did on my shelf :)
I like the 'striptease' photo sequence ;)
You're right Rod. I was chuffed when I saw it :)
Hi Massimo. Thanks for the info' about the origins of the 'Solo Mini' decals on the car - I had no idea they were from an Italian model shop!! I think you may be right, either the car or the decals have travelled a long way because I bought the car from a bloke in Southampton (in the South of England)! :)
Dickie amphy star converted to full rc
These are being sold at 'Lidl' stores at the moment for £20!
Up all night
I bet your eyes were the same colour as the hop up motor mount by 4.30 am! ;)
Third time lucky!
Don't worry Lemming - I made some links for the front and rear from some 3mm threaded rod and some spare ball ends. It strengthens both ends up a treat :)
Marui samurai (2wd onroad)
I like what you've done with this Samurai, a 2WD street machine - very different. The white painted chassis and black wheels make it look mean. Good work :)
Thanks for the comments, advice and encouragement. I suspect I'm going to need all the encouragement I can get - I'm beginning to lean towards gad32's way of thinking!
Thanks for the comments :) It didn't take me long to decide that I had to be cruel to be kind - I've broken up the ratty Viper I bought recently for parts to get this one back together. The wrecked one was so bad it was kinder to put it out of its misery. It didn't yield much worth having but it was enough - just.
This isn't the dirtiest car I've ever restored but it's in the top ten! It appears to have been thoughtfully and lovingly stored in a potato field for the past decade but I have to admit that it's been rewarding cleaning it up ready for reassembly.

Nice addition to the collection Kev! Doesn't look like it'll need much TLC to get it moving :)

Very clean build, a great addition to your collection.
Hello Jason :) I'm afraid the Viper was broken up and used to complete other cars. What are you 'working on' at the moment?

The finished article looks great - nice work Kev :)
The Samurai looks good now you've tidied it up Jim :) You're braver than me putting a brushless system in it - watch those rear diff' gears!
Trf - df-03 racer?
I think you should run it with clothes on!
Nice find Tony!

I told you it would look good in your showroom Kev! ;)
