Bargain pawn shop find

Yes, gentlemen, that was AUD$29.00
And, because I'm *that* guy, I even tried to talk it down further. When I first joined TamiyaClub backing 2007ish, I thought I'd never own an SRB. That little bugger is number 5 and I've found another one since. It's all about looking *everywhere*
Note: Its also really fun to drive!

Parts bin hornet!

That came up great. I'd love to know what that wing is made out of!?
There's something very rewarding (and at the same time alarming) about realizing you have enough spares lying around to complete a whole project you never had planned on

Fast holiday attack buggy vehicle

Thanks Mad-Bee.
There seems to be a bit of a worldwide shortage of drivers that will fit so this poor thing might wind up getting shelved for a while. I hadn't thought of the jerry cans but I'm certainly on the hunt for a cowboy head. Mego action figures around the world over will tremble in fear!

Sideshow Bob could never wear the cowboy hat. Good god man! Get with the plan here!

Well...
In *this* instance the Holiday Buggy driver (in alignment with the theme) has a cowboy hat.

But then there's my thing for chaps and spurs and stuff :-)

My first srb
Capt_Splatt

Thanks James, none of them stand up to close inspection by a serious collector, but they keep me happy. I seriously never thought I'd own 1, let alone all 4 in box art (guidebook art more accurately) examples
As for the wrapping, I suspect I may have insisted on it being wrapped, but I'm happy to blame my wife :-)

Aero streak kit no. 3182 kyosho
INTEGRA FAN

The box art doesn't do the Aero Streak justice. I just finished my restoration of mine and it's truly is one of the best looking Kyosho cars of that period. No idea if it performs anything like the Boomerang it mimics, I've been too scared to drive it.

That looks fantastic lining the shed should keep the disk down a bit. I can't help suspecting that there's a huge pile of stuff just out of shot. There's so much more going on in the first photo. Where did all the unfinished ones go? :-)

Mr big!!!
MAD-BEE

Really cool score. I wanted to get an original for years, but wound up getting a re-re. The re-re is nearly new build because it's too pretty to race.
Have fun stripping that down. It'll be a fun resto

Better than i thought!

Wow! That shade f blue really pops on the Terra Scorcher shell. I've always just used PS4, but that brings out the contours soo much better.

Love the colour choices. and the rear light placements.
I suspect the front lights aren't going to survive the first roll over though.
