Hi Lads,
Sorry to put the same buggy on here but I had to show you my Holiday Buggy now its had some new stickers on it and all finished with a nice back ground! I have a mix of new stickers from the 2010 HB and have left as many of the original stickers as i could and did not change the lights as i was going to because i want the HB to stay original as it can but have it looking at its best!

You've done a great job - lovely buggy! And what a great location! I like the way the spare wheel fills the gap to the bar/bumper...

I really love the first picture. Looks fantastic! It will do just fine as a desktop background.

Can I vote again and bring it back to a draw. (however if the spare was an HB wheel and tyre, I'd vote for the spare). The memories I have of this model will only ever make go fuzzy inside..

MAD-BEE

1-1 it is then SRB Bloke and i will see if i can find me a HB wheel it would look a bit more the ticket! Fuzzy inside is the power this beautiful buggy has!!!!

What a cool looking car in a spectacular location, love the waves crashing onto the beach in the first pic!!
Sorry tho, i'd have to say no to the spare wheel!!
Great Car.
Cheers,
Paul.

Cheers Dam 10 its a Bang on place!
Hi howitzer71 its looking a close thing!maybe a original HB rear wheel will look more authentic! cheers buddy.
Thats a real pat on the back singleseven and pleased you like my pics, nice to hear thanks buddy.
Cheers Paul it was a tough shot to get the wave like that and would you be surprised if i told you that was the first attempt!! Well........... when i say the first attempt i meant the first attempt after the first ten!!
Its a no for the spare then from you, its looking a 50/50 thing now! but the wheel makes a nice little optional part! but see ya point she looks great as she is!
Thanks buddy.

Mad-bee what great pictures.... now i have a new camera think when we get a nice day may need to get out and do some wonderful pics like these. Your HB really is in good fettle and looks like its leapt from the tamiya brochure in 3D!!! . Anyways buddy no frog as yet so may go for an old clunker or do a parts build , as for the other parts that was a no go.... did get some original wild one dampers though un-used and new so not all bad .

MAD-BEE

5-Apr-2011

Hi hot rod thanks mate but its not always this good a weather to get em nice and clear but when it is good its got to be one of the best places to take pics of these Buggys! in a Tamiya brochure thanks mate!! but not in the video thanks! I can hear that monotone tamiya voice over man saying' this off the road all terain buggy will beat allcomers with its high performance 380 motor and its high performance spare wheel!!' Ha-ha
you came out of the shop with some thing thats good as it feels a bit of a disappointment to leave empty handed!
Cheers Buddy.

I dig it (both with or without the spare wheel), great work mate. Nice detail with the net too.

MAD-BEE

5-Apr-2011

Pleased you like the nets! and same with me on the spare! Thanks bud.

Awesome pics as usual, great scenery and great looking HB

the-way

6-Apr-2011

Although the photo#1 is fantastic I really love photo#4 because the car is 50/50 between sand and sky and the roof is almost on line with the horizont. Your car is a fine example of art mixed up with your endless passion and love for this hobby. Spare wheel? Probably I would choose the front wheel as spare because it looks more easy to puncture, and I would put on the bonnet. I love the net and not many buggy have fixed this important (in my opinion) gadget. Well done. Your car, again, attracted so many TC fans and so many comms. That's the magic of sharing something made not only with the screwdriver but with the heart

...great car and pics! About the spare... I am with SRB bloke on that one – make it a HB wheel and I am convinced!

Sorry for what? Tasty beach pics with a fine example of a HB?! Looks magnificent MAD-BEE! I quite like the spare, If you could get hold of a original rear, that would be the icing! Awesome!

Butcher-Bird

6-Apr-2011

man that's awesojme! Soooo much better looking then the pathetic rere..

MAD-BEE

6-Apr-2011

Hi (TIMECMDR) Thanks for that buddy.
Hello the-way picture 4 is one i was pleased with too i got it just right with that wave!
Feeling the Magic my friend thanks Bud.Hi (Scorcherboy77)the spare works but i will get a original HB rear wheel! That will look the real deal then.Cheers mate.
( berman) I think its a win for the spare but i will use a original HB wheel to look in line with the rest! thanks buddy i appreciate that. Hi (Butcher-Bird) it sure does look better then the re-re ! What were Tamiya thinking when they made the 2010 HB !!! The wheels spoil the look completely!! too wide and thin wheels in 'YELLOW' NO! NO! I like yellow! look at the Falcon it looks great with yellow wheels but not on the HB its just not right!! To be fair the 2010 HB has good handling and with oil shocks very good handling and get the wheels sorted and its getting there then!! Thanks and cheers buddy.
A BIG thanks to you all for your comments and top feedback its very appreciated.Cheers MAD-BEE.
