Keen hawk with pre painted bodyshell
thetamiyakid

Just weighed the car, it comes in at 1250g. Not sure how this compares to its start weight though. This does not include servo, speed controller or receiver, but does include motor (super stock BZ).

San-s tamiya rc buggy collection
thetamiyakid

I used the wire out of gardening wire. Strip off the outer green pvc type coating, drill two small holes under two of the wheels, loop the wire through and round each axle and twist behind. It means that if I need to remove them I can without any damage being sustained

It came RTR so it came in standard guise with FRP chassis plates, 3 channel radio, battery and charger.

Guide books - various years

I was hoping for English versions, but they all seem to be in Japanese except for the quarterly versions

I bought this and took it on holiday with me. I could not put it down as it was so interesting. They are pricey, but worth it

Special show release - blue/red chrome plated bc body sets
thetamiyakid

Ooops, should have mentioned where they came from. Were not cheap, but arrived yesterday after being posted Saturday by JR-RC - great service as always.

Special show release - blue/red chrome plated bc body sets
thetamiyakid

The blue was going to be my favourite, but it is not as good quality as the red (blue is a bit thin as you can see by the distinct non blue chrome strips to the top of the side pods). No thinning on the red one though

Special show release - blue/red chrome plated bc body sets
thetamiyakid

They are standard ABS plastic bodies that are chrome plated. I believe they were a Japan only show special release so difficult to come by

X2 from stella

Kit 1 blister behind motor is split, I guess I was so excited I did not notice.. Seems as though the blister is so thin that the weight of the motor is punching a hole. Still a very happy chappy though

Instructions added. Crash, spares are always useful, but having never run one I am not sure what parts are susceptible to wear and tear

Not one but two!!
thetamiyakid

Whoa!!!😳, 351 hits in less than twenty four hours, that beats my f350 when it was featured on the home page (that was quite a while ago).

First in the uk? many thanks stellamodels
thetamiyakid

Just had a quick look at the shipping box. Stella have cut out the Tamiya logos and product detail stickers so there is no reference as to what is inside - probably why it came through customs

Finally complete. I cannot take credit for the Bodyshell, purchased from ebay, has a customshack sticker on the rear window. Full MFU treatment, Junfac suspension conversion, Gmade wheels/tyres. One for the shelf (definitely considering the cost).

Second with highly detailed body shell
thetamiyakid

Thanks. I cannot take credit for the painting skills, I bought the shell as you see it. It is very detailed, there is just no way I could have achieved these sorts of results

Looks like these photos are from your visit to Beaulieu National Motor Museum in the New Forest, Hampshire. Well worth a visit if you like seeing rare cars, great day out

New built, soon to be run....
thetamiyakid

Thanks. It is currently 'living in a box' as it is too big to display in my current den. I have not looked at it since taking these pics two years ago. I have a second NIB so I have spares for when I run it
