Superchamp left forgotten on a high shelf

Thanks for your feed back guys. I think it looks good in the black,although it does remind me of the Hornet. More photos coming soon. Cheers

Hey Mongoose,i will be posting more pictures soon. I agree,i think it is better to leave this one as is with its aged paint and decals.

This one i bought new looong time ago.
Alonien

I love the look of these. I dont care that the wheels dont fit the arches and look ungainly,this has got to be the best body they put on that chassis. I have one of these i am just restoring.

And there they were..
Alonien

Great cars,very under rated considering the engineering in one of these. They were not the quickest car,but i love them. I have 14 of them!

My small collection of vintage tamtechs
Crash Cramer

Hey Crash,nice collection. The Tamtech models were kind of the 'unloved' lesser series that Tamiya bought out,but i still think they are fascinating models. Good going.

Decals

Nice job there Morgi. Is this an original or re-release body? I am restoring two originals at the moment. Impressive job on the masking up.

Suddenly it happens...
Alonien

Hi Alonien. Nice find,i have two of these that i am restoring. I would leave the wheels as they are,i love the yellow faded look you get from vintage plastics. If you start replacing every thing with new,or trying to make like new,you may as well buy a re-release. Looks good in that colour,ive not seen that before.

Next resto through the door
junkmunki

Hey Marcus
Thanks for the comment. Once the damage to the front wing is fixed,it is going to be treated to a new (original) paint job and then i think it will be lightly used. I have just posted some updates on the resto,so check them out.

Toyota lb turbo restoration update
junkmunki

Hi Dirt
When i paint something,and its been left to dry for a week or so,i generally go over it with some 1200 grade wet and dry sand paper and then polish it with some compound. This gets rid of any dust specks and imperfections while giving a deep shine. Its easier on a blocky body shape,but with patience the results can be stunning. Thanks for the comments

It's getting out of control!!!

Pass the kleenex....... I dont think Tamiya has that many original kits in their collection! How long did it take to build this collection?

Rough rider restoration
Jezbo

Which decal set have you used,is it a re-re set or is it an after market vinyl set? I have not found a good set faithful to the original.

Rare vintage tamiya model magazines. issue 1
junkmunki

Having gone through some of the others,there are some club magazines from America with such gems as comparisons between the Blazing Blazer and Hi-Lux and one article where the testers raced all of the SRBs together to see which was the best. If only i had a time machine....

Help me please

If you are going to replace the plug with a newer type,for example a 7.2 volt battery,you would have to update the motor to a 540 size. The original 380 motors are a bit hectic on 7.2 volts! I dont think anybody makes a six volt battery now.
